It’s kind of a dream of mine to have that house, the one where friends and family frequently come over to hang out because it’s so comfortable and inviting. I love summer entertaining—nothing too fancy—usually just a good old backyard barbecue with friends laughing while burgers sizzle on the grill and the kids chase each other on the lawn. It’s important to me to create an ambience that feels welcoming, especially when the sun starts to slip below the horizon and dusk settles in. Sometimes we get to talking well into the night and I don’t want the party to end. Festive lighting makes everyone want to stay and enjoy the evening a little bit longer.
When I first met Luminara outdoor lanterns, I knew I had to have them for my back patio, the place my family gathers nightly to relax in the cool air. I was heart broken to find I’d hesitated too long and completely missed out on the sale. QVC sold out of every single Luminara lantern in just a few hours. Guess everyone else out there loves them too.
Let me tell you four huge reasons I love Luminara lanterns:
1.They are impressive and elegant. As far as home decor goes, these gorgeous lanterns make a statement. The flameless candles flicker and dance with the most realistic effect I have ever seen. Plus, Luminara lanterns are NOT your regular flimsy lantern. They are hefty, sturdy, and will last you plenty of seasons.
2. They are 100% safe to have around curious little fingers.
3. They come with a remote and timer. No messy melting wax. No waking up at 2am worried you didn’t put out the candle. No running out of batteries because you forgot to turn the lantern off. One of my favorite features of the Luminara flameless candles is that they all come with automatic timers, remotes, or both! When it starts to get dark, there’s no running to get a lighter or matches. You simply push a button and a warm, cozy light illuminates your intimate gathering. It’s like an unspoken invitation to stay a little longer.
4. They are an insanely good deal today! And by today, I mean today only. The last time QVC hosted this deal, they sold out in hours. Luminara candles are rarely discounted this deeply, in fact it’s been nearly a year since the last sale and procrastinators like me totally missed out.
I promise, you don’t need to be on the fence with this one. I am not an impulse shopper by any means, but last year I hesitated and my back porch was cold, dark, and lonely all summer long. Don’t be me.
