Home Reflections Floating Flower Flameless Candle & Timer
I ordered the water lily and rose candles and absolutely love them both! It was
fun to experiment with them; I used the rose ones in wedding reception arrangements and couldn't have been happier with the glowing effect they give. I placed one rose in a rustic basket surrounded by Spanish moss and tiny flowers, and used the water
lily candle in a pretty glass bowl with blue glass marbles in the bottom.
bottom of candle
i bought one of the 6 inch a tear ago and the bottom of it that holds the batteries in wont stay in . and that keeps the candle from coming on. Tries to send message to company and they will not respond
I bought the sunflower, with no intention of using it in water. It is beautifully molded and painted, and gives off a nice muted glow. I found a clay flowerpot with a top diameter similar to the candle's base, filled it so the candle will sit just below the lip of the pot, and put it under a glass garden cloche on my coffee table. It makes a lovely summer look. I did have to send the first candle I received back because the on/off button didn't work, but the replacement has been working fine. I only use it with the candle flicker option--I think the color changing option just looks silly.
It Melted in the Heat
I put the candle in a large copper bowl outside filled with water. It melted a little bit more each day in the heat. I took it out of the bowl of water where it had been and laid it on a nearby plastic shelf. It slowly melted even more and left a river of melted wax running down the side of the shelf. Admittedly, the temperatures had been in the high 90's.
The dried river of wax is still there on the shelf months later as it was impossible to remove once it had hardened.
I purchased the water lily candle & have it sitting on a green ceramic pedestal dish on a console table beneath a wall mirror. When the light turns on at night it is truly lovely & serene to look at. I have not tried to float it in water as I did not purchase it for that but I imagine it would look lovely as a pair of these candles floating in a large shallow bowl or bird bath. The batteries are well sealed in their compartment & should stay dry. Keep the battery compartment opener nearby the candle so u have it come time to change the battery. I luv the Flameless line of candles & have several others throughout my home. It's a good thing!!
I am a huge sunflower gal, and this candle is amazing, so pretty and well made. Perfect illumination. I put it in a lead crystal candy dish,no water, and it is more than pretty. I use it in bedroom for night light, and with the timer it is perfect!
I like it
I bought this for my daughter's grandmother. She loves flowers. The sunflower looked too bright, the rose looked so pretty, but seemed too plain. But me and my daughter picked out the water lily. It was just right and her grandmother loved it. It takes a couple double A batteries which is nice, but this would have been better if this was a plug in item versus battery operated. Another thing I noticed is the flower is made of wax. I thought this was plastic, rubber or maybe even glass. So you do have to be careful with it so it won't get any dents and dings in it. That part was slightly disappointing. Maybe I missed something when reading the specifications or something, I don't know. But my daughter's grandmother really liked it and I'm glad. Make this non-wax and outlet operable and I think it will be a hit.
Subtle and Beautiful
I ordered my water lilly to use with the birdcage and bird that I ordered from Valerie's collection. The bird cage is decorated, the bird is hanging on the perch, and I placed this water lilly in the bird cage, under the bird's perch. It is on a timer so each evening, the candle gently lights the bird and it really adds a lot to this display. The perfect finishing touch!
Beautiful but timer doesn't work
This is beautiful and I wanted to give it more stars but the timer does not work. It does not come on automatically nor will it stay on more than 10-15 min after I turn it on. It seemed to work ok when I first got it but quickly stopped. I never used it in water. Not crazy about having to unscrew the entire bottom to turn it on either. Especially since so many reviewers say it leaks anyway. Waited too long to return.
I just received this the other day for my daughter who made a little tranquil place for herself in a corner of our sun room where she can just chill our and relax. She put the candle in the middle of a really pretty lavender bowl and the candle floating in it is just beautiful. I was surprised at how much light it puts out. She also has some other Flameless candles that we have also purchased from QVC and it looks like a little Zen garden. It is amazing what you can do with all these beautiful candles if you just use your mind to think out a theme. All my Flameless candles are from QVC. They have the best ones on the market ,I wouldn't think of buying them anywhere else.And after writing this review I just got an idea and will purchase some more. . '
I got the sunflower and it is the perfect little centerpiece in a bowl of water on my kitchen table!
pretty with wrong directions
Loved this candle when I took it out of the box, but like other's comments, hated having to use that plastic thing to get to the batteries...especially since the directions that came with it were WRONG! I finally just pulled on the bottom lid and got to the batteries. Because it is wax I did break a tiny piece of the candle off but it's not obvious except to me...sad because it's really pretty with or without the lighting. I put it in my guest bedroom...hopefully, they'll come up with a better solution for changing batteries...I just left the botton lid off.
