I have quite a few lanterns at my house. I just recently decided to put flameless candles in them for safety. I love having my porch all lit up with candles to greet holiday guests, but it is hard to keep them lit if it is a little windy, not to mention the safety concerns of unsupervised flames inside or outside. I have been really pleased with how realistic some of the flameless candles look! Some of them would really make you do a double take.
I still prefer the scent and look of a real candle, but there are lots of times lately where I am finding a flameless candle works best and you won’t even know the difference.
If you want candles in your garland on a mantle or anywhere that safety or melted wax could be an issue, flameless candles would be a great solution.
Have you tried a flameless candle?
