Must-Have Valentine’s Day Décor 3: Taper Candles & Candleholders

Taper candles are a classic Valentine’s Day accessory. There’s something romantic about their long, tall shape and the soft light they shine on tables and nearby décor.  Classic wax taper candles are beautiful, but don’t forget to check out mechanical candles and LED candles. Modern designs make them look just as realistic with fewer hassles. The best part is that they typically fit inside any standard taper candleholder.

Must-Have Valentine’s Day Décor 4: Flower Vase

Along with warm lighting, you also need an elegant way to decorate tables and other areas. Simple glass vases filled with flowers are a great choice. Red roses are popular, but you can get creative and choose any blossom, preferably in pink, red and/or purple (sometimes with white for contrast). Glass vases come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes so you can find the right piece to go with your preferred décor style.

Must-Have Valentine’s Day Décor 5: Proper Table Coverings

It may seem unimportant, but the tablecloth is a vital part of any celebration. This will really pull your party area together and make the celebration feel more formal to guests. A simple red tablecloth will work or you can get creative by adding a contrasting overlay or square tablecloth for a stunning layered look.

Halloween parties are an autumn staple event for many families. If you plan to host your own spooky get together, make sure you have all the finer details planned out. Our black and orange ostrich feather centerpiece is the perfect way to commemorate the creepy holiday. If you want to do something different, instead go for the black and purple version or alternate between the two (when decorating multiple tables). Ostrich feather centerpieces are reusable so you can use them each Halloween!

Christmas Dinners

Christmas dinner is always better with festive decorations. Set the table to perfection starting with a red and green Christmas ostrich feather centerpiece. If you prefer something more modern, try a Baby Blue feather centerpiece to go with a snowflake themed event. The possibilities are endless when you decorate tables with ostrich feather centerpieces!

with modern convenience!

Move over wax candles because LED lanterns are ready to take event décor to the next level! Accent and mood lighting is an essential part of many events. It’s the best way to draw attention to décor and add fine detail to your beautiful venue. While wax candles and oil lamps are appealing, they can also be a huge hassle. Instead of contending with lanterns that have a wick that must be lit and re-lit throughout the event, you can instead try safer LED lanterns!

LEDs vs. Wicks

Wax candles are a staple at weddings, religious ceremonies, birthday parties and holiday events, but they aren’t always the easiest option. Wicks must be lit (and checked in case a rogue breeze blows a few out). Burning flame produces smoke that can be uncomfortable to guests. Fire is also a hazard that must be carefully used, especially when hosting a large gathering that will require many candles or oil lamps.

LED lights, on the other hand, offer the same lovely glow without all the drawbacks. There’s no open flame or oil, so you never have to worry about a fire hazard or smoke. The lantern will continue to burn until you turn it off or until it runs out of power. That means you never have to worry about a stiff breeze ruining your gorgeously illuminated centerpieces!

LED Lanterns for Any Occasion

Our LED lantern collection is enormous and spans a wide range of décor styles. Want more color in your event? Try our fascinating colored glass globe outdoor lanterns. Prefer something more traditional? Check out the robust look of our school house lantern. We even have LED lanterns that blend well with modern décor, like our open wire work lanterns and our round outdoor lanternswith scrollwork patterns. Browse our selection and make your next event even more memorable without wax candle-induced headaches!

Silhouette Outdoor LED Lanterns

From silhouettes to washed wood, our LED lanterns create brilliant atmosphere at any event!
