Burning candles add a warm, soothing ambiance to any room with their flickering glow. I make my own beeswax and soy candles for regular use in our home. As much as I love burning candles there are times where the ambiance of a burning candle would be lovely but without the associated safety concerns or heating the room. A while ago I discovered flameless candles.
Flameless candles now come in a wide range of sizes and some even have colour changing flames for a festive touch. I have 8 flameless candles in the tealight style. They don't get a lot of use so I'm still on my first batteries for each of them. They really are nice for adding ambiance when the grandbabies are home without worrying about a candle being accidently knocked over. I also turn a couple of them on when showing the house for a nice touch yet I don't have to worry about them accidently being left on. In the warm weather months I can have a few on without heating the house.
I use the flameless candles most around the Christma holiday season season where I can scatter them about to get the ambiance. They are small enough to set on a narrow windowsill for that homey feel inside and out. I honestly wouldn't buy a lot of these candles simply because you have to turn each one on individually but in perspective it is no different than going around to light candles individually.
