Red Heart-Shaped Floating Candles
Perfect for us!
These candles turned out to be exactly as they're described in size and color. They're perfectly heart-shaped (undamaged because each is double wrapped and are packaged 12 to a box,) they float evenly and are pretty in color.
If you make sure the wicks are all about 1/4" in length and are standing straight-up when you put them in the water - lighting each one is simple. We put a red one and a white one in each of the dishes on the tables at the reception and they looked beautiful! (They matched perfectly with our "Two Hearts" theme for the wedding.) They only burn for about 2 hours each, but I was aware of that when I ordered them.
If you call-in your order, the wonderful folks in Customer Service can give you additional info about each product that may not be mentioned on-line or in the catalog...no surprises that way!

Well worth the money!
I ordered these candles to put in little vases on our tables at our wedding to give the venue that nice candle lit glow. I haven't used them yet, but they are well worth the money! They are adorable, and look identical to the picture. I set them up in a little vase to get an idea of what it would look like, and I love it. The only downfall is the fact that I am a smell good queen, and these candles don't have a scent. I wasn't expecting them to, but that would have been a nice touch!

I bought these for floating candle bowls we are using as centerpieces at our wedding. They are small, but it says their size in the description. Since they only last about an hour, we cut the wick off and used a red sharpie so you couldn't see any of it. They are just floating hearts that way. We bought small water-proof lights to put in the bottom of the bowl. It looks amazing!

The candles, along with other products, made it easy to create our own centerpieces in such tight economic times. They were a beautiful touch, even though they didn't last the entire 4 hours of reception. We were lucky that red was one of the colors of the wedding, but it would would be great if they were offered in a larger selection of colors.

I expected these candles to be a bit larger but overall, they looked nice. They only burned for about an hour though. They're good for pretty, maybe not if you want a long lasting decoration all night.

Very small (looks much larger in photo) & kind of expensive for how small they actually are. Will use as party favors along with personalized mint tin for bridal shower.
