Let there be Fairy Lights



Oh how I love fairy lights, they create instant ambience and they don’t have to be just for Christmas!  I recently discovered Blaze On an ethically sound British business that began from a market stall in Portobello and have propelled into the luxury market of fairy lights and candles. From the moment I received a box of their gorgeous handcrafted luminaries to review, I knew they were going to be special!

I opened the brown box and peeled away the delicate orange paper which revealed Magical Butterfly beautiful lavender and cream toned butterflies perfectly crafted from their Enchanted Garden lights series. I’ve never actually thought of giving fairy lights as a gift but having received these I can see how they would make a lovely present. The warm white LED lights give up to 100,000 hours (ten years of light) and are safe and reliable with no bulbs to change.

There are 20 butterflies on a clear 5 metre LED light string with 15cm space between each butterfly and this particular set is priced £28.00.


Fairy lights can really add another dimension to the candles and photos that usually grace a fireplace.


I placed the lights carefully into a clear vase  (as I don’t have a fish bowl) for a different lighting decoration, although you do need to be careful as the pieces are delicate.

If you’re struggling to add light to a space I can see how these would help brighten up a dark corner of a room.


You may want to showcase a special feature, or if you’re a romantic like me drape them around a headboard although I know it’s not to everyone’s taste!



Baby Jay is fascinated with lights so it only seemed fair to let him enjoy these in his room.


I like the variety of colourful creations offered by Blaze On.  The beautiful designs are made using natural ethically sourced materials in collaboration with a number of home-run businesses in Thailand, making it possible for parents to support their families and educate their children. It’s a win win situation!

Whatever the season or occasion I think the gentle twinkle in a living space instills a certain sense of magic and the decorating possibilities are endless.
