This blown-glass, battery-operated trio is as versatile as it is beautiful. Indoors, you can brighten your mantel, shelves, and tables with a tranquil glow. Mix with flowers to create a dazzling centerpiece for your next dinner party.

But why stay inside? As the weather warms, you can decorate your patio, deck, or garden with these gorgeous glass spheres featuring a new twinkling firefly lighting effect. They even come with easy-to-use attachments, so you can hang each sphere for overhead ambient lighting.

Perfectly balanced at varying heights, this trio can be displayed together or spread throughout your home--the decorating possibilities are endless! Because the spheres are battery-operated, you aren't limited by outlet locations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my best Q purchases ever If you have watched the presentations for this item and you have considered buying it but then you have backed off (they are a little pricey), take the plunge. I was just watching Valerie Parr Hill's harvest show (8 Aug 17) and I clicked on "write a review" to see if I'd ever written a review for the three sets of these that I have purchased. I hadn't! Shock and astonishment!! Well, I will remedy that now. If I could give this product ten stars, I would. I remove the batteries if I store these. The battery life is very long for these. Last year and the year before, I put at least one set of three of these out around Halloween in a fall sort of vignette and it was on daily for whatever the timer is (5 hrs? 6 hrs? I forget) and I did not need new batteries until the new year (I have the silver and the gold and the red... I think I put the gold out for fall so that goes out first). The other two sets did not need new batteries at all... they lasted the entire time I put them out (maybe the red went out for Thanksgiving along w/ lots of ambers, golds, greens, etc. in my décor). These globes provide the most pleasing, cozy light! Our living room was awash in the pale glow created by these and several lighted trees from Valerie's collection last Xmas. We did not put up a big Xmas tree because we had to travel to relatives' house and it just did not seem worth the effort, but we still had plenty of holiday ambiance thanks to all the lighted mercury glass globes and pedestals and finials and candlesticks. Many thanks to Q and to Valerie for this OUTSTANDING item. Mine all arrived perfectly and safely packed and have worked w/o flaw for two full seasons. This presentation has been a good reminder to me to get them out and start creating a fallscape on my mantel and coffee table. If you can't get the exact color you want, get another color. I use one set of lighted finials (you could use these spheres) in the master bath on the corner of the big tub in a corner. I don't have young children and my cats would be unlikely to knock them and break them the way I have them situated. They provide a pleasing glow all night and basically serve as a night light for us. Enjoy!! BTW These would make a sensational gift for just about anyone. Everyone who came into our home last year and saw these asked where I got them and commented on their beauty. I'm marking "grandparents" for the gift question because I usually can't choose them for most of my reviews, but they'd love this product. (Happy sigh.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best! Last night was the first time I used these. I turned them on the timer function. They were beautiful!! They were in the room where I was sleeping. In the middle of the night, we got terrifying storms. They were so comforting, as well as plain lovely. Also, a great source of light if electric suddenly went out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful spheres - impressive power capacity I was impressed that each of these spheres takes 3 "C" batteries - this means the lights will work for a long time between fresh battery installations. I got the silver spheres; they look beautiful hanging from a metal arch, above a big lion's head wall fountain. They don't move around too much in wind (even though there is a warning about high wind in the instructions). These spheres make their area of the yard look like a fairyland at night.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Colors are off I purchased the amber because I wanted a soft orange that I would use near my lilies and still use when I decorate in the fall. What arrived is not what was shown on air or online. It looks like a soft gold with a hint of brown. They almost match my chocolate pedestals I got from Valerie last year. The pumpkin wasn't available when I ordered the first time, but it is now. I'm reordering with hopes of better luck and gifting the "amber" set to my mom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Chocolate is Gold not Brown I've redone my family room Christmas decorations to be all champagne and brown. I wanted these last year and was wait-listed on this item's predecessor, but it never returned. It looked like a true brown. This set is pretty, but just a dark, antique goldish shade - not the rich brown that it looked like on tv. I'll use them, but the search for brown goes on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from VERY PRETTY SPHERES I really like this spheres. They add just the right sparkle especially at night. My first set of silver lasted 20 months before 2 of them died interestingly enough during the same week. I just ordered another set but unfortunately one did not work so back they go. I just reordered and hoping I have better luck QVC posts my reviews as Anonymous but I am LEXPEX

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pretty They are very pretty, but the chains rust. We had a couple rain storms and after the chain(hook) all rusted out. Now they are in my flower beds on ground.
