A Valentine's Tale of Romantic Lighting

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Romance is in the air, the shops are filled with hearts, chocolates and flowers.  We indulge in chic flicks, tears streaming at the wonderful dramatic and romantic stories unfolding on the screen.  Dare I mention The Notebook?  Valentine's day is approaching with great speed, but if you are looking to warm the heart of your loved one this year in a less traditional way, how about indulging in a beautiful piece of romantic lighting. Nothing creates a more romantic mood than light.  Whether its been a single candle flickering in the evening air.  An exquisite chandelier over powering in it's presence but delicate in the rays of rainbows descending from the crystals above. If you looking to be a little cheeky this Valentine's how about these love heart inspired candles.  They come in packs of 6 and like their sweet sisters have the sayings we have grown to know and love.
