Momma Told Me: #59 Party Lite

#59 Party Lite



Momma Told Me: Lighting can set any mood.

Humans are very tactile creatures, we rely on all of our senses to alert us of danger, reassure our fears, confirm celebration, ignite passion, and gauge dismay. Our sense of smell can determine a flowers pique in life, or an aged piece of meat's imminent turn. And, while each sense is arguable equally valuable, I revel in that of sight the most. And, just like a face can convey a myriad of emotions, lighting can play just as important a role. To this day the warm orange glow of cake exploding with candles takes me back to my 10th birthday and my first every ice cream cake, with dreams of bring a prima-ballerina dancing in my head. I still recall the way my typically nonthreatening walk to school would turn macabre in the gusting winds and overcast sky, which cast shadows on knotted, leafless trees. And I can't forget the dull flicker of candlelight on the beach as the moon's glow reflected on the water where I first fell in love... It's amazing what lighting can do.

With the holiday season finally hear I find myself overjoyed with decorating possibilities, and promises of new memories with family. This will be the husband and I's first year in our own home, which means our first pumpkins on the porch, our first Christmas tree, and plenty of snuggling. Of course, I'll have to do some shopping, but what's a holiday without shopping? So, naturally, I couldn't wait to share with you our first official Fall decoration, and the place I will be returning to for many many more- Party Lite!


If you are unfamiliar with this worldwide leader in direct selling candles, ambiance lighting and decor, you are in for a treat! What began back in 1909 was more of a home business and hobby for school teacher Mabel Baker of Cape Cod. Crafting bayberry candles for family and friends quickly turned into a million dollar company driven by Mabel's entrepreneurial skills and passion for quality candles. Though Mabel is no longer with us today, her spirit and inspiration thrives in Party Lite, with over 68,000 consultants worldwide and a wildly successful direct selling plan. That's right, women(and a few men) just like you and me are improving the quality of their lives selling the home accents and candles they believe in and their customers love! Not only can you become a consultant, or host your own PartyLite at home party, but this forward moving company is highly involved in charity.


In addition to the hundreds of new, quality, products released each year, Party Lite is committed to giving back to the community. In just 10 years, their donations have totaled to over 23 million dollars! Charities such as The Ronald McDonald Home and American Cancer Society benefit from fundraisers and exclusive product sales. In 1997, with the alarming statistic 1 in 3 women will develop breast cancer during their life, Party Lite set out to make the American Cancer Society their primary charitable focus. Not only do the statistics seem staggering, but my own personal family history puts this cause dear to my heart.

Remember how we were discussing lighting earlier? Well, Party Lite also believes ambiance directly effects a person's success and over all state of being. Through pride and comfort in one's home and surroundings with the help of meaningful accents, engaging aromas, and peaceful lighting, it's a way of living not just a collection of products. This is something I whole heartedly believe in.


While candles may be the first thing which comes to mind when you hear Party Lite, this company is much more than candles, just as much as it is much more than at home parties. The product lines break into 4 basic categories; Home Fragrance, Bath and Body Care, Home Decor and Two Sisters Gourmet. Even I was surprised to learn of Party Lite's exclusive line of easy to bake and cook gourmet mixes and foods. Tropical Coconut Cheeseball Mix, Beer Bread Mix, Mango Peach Salsa, and Vermont Maple Dijon Grilling Sauce are just some of the MSG free gourmet tastes waiting for you at Party Lite!


If all of the wonderful Holiday Decor, Gourmet Food, Home Fragrance Collections and At Home Opportunities aren't enough to tempt you, Party Lite's got something else up their sleeve. I'm extremely excited to share with you the Lite Up Your Holidays Party Lite Sweepstakes, with daily instant win opportunities for $50! And, if you're here, then I know you love amazing prizes and great home decor, so hurry on over now and don't miss one day of this exciting event! You can play every day, now through November 30, 2010 to claim entries towards the grand prize of a 10,000 room makeover! Every day 5 instant win prizes of $50 Party Lite gift certificates will be awarded as well! Entering is as simple as heading on over here and typing DN4FJC as your consultant code, then play the daily game to find out if you're an instant winner! I already claimed my daily entry for today, I love instant win sweepstakes!


I'm also very excited to announce that Party Lite is one of our Winter Wonderland event partners and has kindly donated a prize to be given away today! They were kind enough to send me their new for 2010 6"x6" square holiday, 5 wick, pillar in Green($39.95) for review here on Momma Told Me. My pillar also included a white ceramic candle tray for burning, a $14.95 retail value.



Let me start out by telling you it is a good day when one of these teal Party Lite boxes wind up in your hands. You know you're in for a treat- I could hardly wait to open up my goodies. Starting with the small box first (ready to gift), I uncovered a delicately decorated white candle tray that was surprisingly sturdy and lightweight. The second box was considerably heavier and possessed the 5-wick candle which promised 75-90 hours of burn time throughout the holiday season. This Party Lite 6"x6" candle is understandably substantial and available in 3 festive fragrances; Red- Cinnamon and Bayberry, White- Iced Snowberries, and Green- Spruce In The Snow. While my candle was nestled safely amongst an Styrofoam protector, I could smell it's inviting fragrance instantly through the box.

The scent was a bold, yet slightly sweet mixture of pine and bayberry which the husband appreciated as more natural than 'flowery'. The candle itself is a true centerpiece upon it's tray, and draws many compliments from it's home on our living room table. I love how the 5 wicks emit a calming and strong glow suitable for lighting an entire table setting or room, and the even burning allows for a high quality burn and fragrance distribution. I've yet to burn this candle enough to make a substantial dent in it's size, but we certainly have already found a lot of enjoyment in it!

What Daughter Says: Party Lite helps set the mood in my home, and thousands of homes, and hearts, worldwide.



One very lucky Momma Told Me reader will win the same Party Lite 5 Wick Candle and Tray set reviewed here, a $55 value!
