Now that it’s November I can start thinking of Thanksgiving and Christmas! We’ve invested in a ton of LED lights for our home since we moved in, replacing nearly all the bulbs. Not only do they save on energy but they last a whole lot longer than halogens or florescents. We even love decorating with LED lights, for the same reasons. We bought ourselves a new Christmas tree (on Halloween no less!) pre-lit with LED bulbs and I love the way they don’t get hot but still emit such a clean light.
I’ve blogged before about the fantastic Energizer Flameless Wax Candles. They are a safe way to have the ambiance of burning candles without the risk. They even have subtle scents to them so that if you burn candles for the fragrance you’re not missing that either.
We entertain quite a bit during the holiday season, and I don’t like to have candles burning on the off chance someone happens to bump one and I get wax, glass or of course the fear of something catching on fire. That’s what’s so great about having these Energizer Flameless candles out they not only look real, the flicker pattern of the LED light is realistic also.
Here’s the thing though…they’re kind of plain. Solid colors, ivory and taupe. What that means though is that you can dress them up the way you want for any occasion.
Even though we’ve lived in the U.S. for 14 years now, being from Canada it’s still strange to do Thanksgiving in November. I don’t tend to decorate much for Thanksgiving at all, and go right to the Christmas decor in mid November. But when I was trying to think of ways to decorate my Energizer Flameless Wax Candles for Christmas, I noticed a ball of colorful elastics on my bookshelf. There were red, green, yellow, orange, beige; and I had 3 white ivory flameless candles and one taupe one.
What could be simpler than to dress up these pillars with elastic bands?!
So for a Thanksgiving/Autumn one, I just layered yellow, orange and beige elastics in the middle of the candle, and it makes for such a fun harvesty look! (Or a flickering candy corn!)
I did some random patterns with the ivory pillars, using red and green elastic bands.
I just grouped them together on our fireplace hearth to take the photos, but I’m pretty sure that’s where I’m going to stage them when I decorate for real!
They looked so cool there flickering in the evening.
A few additional features include:
- Advanced 3-level timer so consumers can choose an auto shut-off at 4, 6 or 8 hours
- Three LEDs create a realistic flicker pattern that does not repeat for up to 72 hours – one of the attributes that sets Energizer Flameless Wax Candles apart from other flameless wax candles on the market
- Memory feature so you can set the candles to come on at the same time every day
How would you decorate for the holidays using Energizer Flameless Wax Candles?
