N doesn’t really have a decorated bedroom, but I’ve always quite liked the idea of fairy lights for N’s room. So when we were offered the chance to choose a set of Blaze On lights I jumped at the chance.
Blaze On sell a wide variety of fairy lights – ranging from wicker hearts to flowers to handmade paper cars, and moons and stars sets. There’s something for everyone, in every possible colour.
We chose the blue tone ambient balls – I love blue and N’s room (when we decorate) is likely to have tones of blue, so I thought these would look great. The balls were probably the most versatile for us, especially as when they arrived, I quite fancied stealing them for myself in due time.
All of the Blaze On lights are ethically made, and come in recyclable packaging. Like so many independent business, they arrived beautifully packaged in orange tissue paper.
We loved the blue of these lights. Perfect for anywhere in the house, but also if you’re having a party. The silver cable sets them off nicely too. The ambient balls are woven cotton, made in Chiang Mai Thailand. They’re really simple, but the effect is lovely whether the lights are on or not.
As soon as the box was open N was in and wanting to look at them. I had to stop him from turning the plug switch on and off, but he’s obviously bewitched by them.
His room at the moment is pretty boring and plain, but the Blaze On lights do look a bit like the planets on his bed cover and the colour goes perfectly (excuse the messy room, his version of making his bed isn’t the best and he seems to have swapped pillows round for the right one that goes!)
I love the soft lighting that comes from the warm LED bulbs. They’re great for N to be able to fall asleep to as they don’t light up the whole room, but mimic the traditional fairy light glow. And with a 2 metre lead it means they can reach further from the plug.
Amazingly, Blaze On lights give up to 100,000 hours, or ten years of light. That’s a lot of light for your money!
My only problem is finding somewhere suitable to actually hang them on a permanent basis as our windows upstairs don’t really allow for nice curtain poles. I’m also eyeing up the green daisy LED lights as they’d go with the bed linen in our room.
So pretty and perfect for an evening garden party in the summer, a conservatory, or just in other rooms in your house.
