Be Safe. Go Flameless

November 4, 2011 Leave a comment

According to the National Candle Association, More than 15,000 residential fires are caused each year by the careless or inappropriate use of candles.

Do you love the beauty and tranquility that candles bring to a room, but are afraid of knocking them over or forgetting to blow them out? Eliminate this stress and give yourself more peace-of-mind by switching to flameless candles!  Here’s some of the benefits:

  • No wax=no mess
  • Candle doesn’t run out; just simply replace the battery
  • Cost effective: some can last up to 800 hours
  • Portable
  • Some have timers: no more remembering to blow out the flame

Here are some of our favorite flameless candles:
