I'm not crazy about using the votive candles on the Shabbos table, because even though they look beautiful on Friday night, we can't move them on Shabbos morning when they've burnt out and the effect is lost.
Avram isn't as excited about using the gold charges as I am. He feels that they take up too much space on the table.
Don't they look lovely together though? Everybody wins. Everybody is happy.
I sure hope the Shabbos Malach enjoys the results.
