Two great ways to light up your home
If you look back on your favorite memories, chances are there were lights involved that made the experience even more special: the romantic candlelight during a dinner date, Christmas lights during the holidays, or sparkler candles on your birthday cake. Any good home decor maven knows, however, that you aren’t limited to enjoying the glow of candlelight or pretty electric lights on holidays or special occasions. You can and should enjoy them on ordinary days and extra special moments alike! If you’re on the lookout for unique ways to fill your home with lovely lights, give these options a try:
For a hassle-free option: flameless candles with timers
What’s not to love about a candle with an irresistible fragrance and a soft, flickering glow? Well, a few things: You have to make sure not to leave it unattended, constantly trim the wick, worry about not spilling messy wax, and if you’re sensitive to smell, deal with the odor of smoke every time you blow the candle out. For a hassle-free alternative, try switching to realistic-looking flameless candles with timers. These are available in scented wax varieties that offer a convincing glow, so they’ll blend in with your decor and your guests will be none the wiser. These candles come with a battery-operated timer, which allow you to set it and forget it even if you have kids or pets running around the house.
For a festive option: floating lights for hot tubs
“Light-up turtle, you’re the one” might not have the same ring as the original tune dedicated to the rubber ducky, but you just might be singing this anyway after you give floating lights for hot tubs a try. These are perfect decorations to light up nighttime hot tub or pool parties. You can pick out a fun shape of your choice, such as hearts, beautiful lilies, or color-changing flowers. You can even float these in a large punch bowl and use them as a beautiful tabletop centerpiece. Look for floating lights with one hour auto shut-off to maximize battery life.
