As mentioned in another article I wrote, I love Partylite products and service. Partylite candles burn so cleanly and completely that cheaper candles just won’t satisfy anymore. The scents are wonderful and the variety provides a favorite for everyone’s unique preference of smell. I’ve been very pleased with the time I needed to go through customer service. Every season, Partylite has new additions to their line.

In choosing an item to review, I decided on the Weathered Zinc Lantern. I had  had my eye on this for quite a while. It’s beautiful! The glass panels are such a nice compliment to the rustic look of the metal. The only thing that surprised me was the sheer size of this item. I had no idea it was almost 2 feet tall just based on the stock pictures. You definitely can’t put it on a small patio table. I’m still looking for the perfect spot in my yard for it.

Despite its size, it is just a really pretty piece. With the open slots at the top, the lantern stays cool so you don’t have to worry about any little hands getting burned accidentally. It’s of heavy construction if you are concerned about wind or it tipping over. I also like the fact that door has magnets to keep it closed so the door doesn’t swing open when you gently move it. There is a ring on top but, due to the weight of this item, I would not recommend hanging it.

I’m glad that they sent the 3×3 Vanilla pillar with it. I’m fairly picky when it comes to fragrances. I like it sweet but not too strong and this fit perfectly with my preference. I love the bit of design on the inside where the candle rests. It’s adds that extra touch to heighten the overall quality. And look at how the light just reflects inside and out!

This lantern is listed under the theme ‘country getaway’ but I think it can work in most decors. It’s a great piece that would be perfect for some summer entertaining in the yard.

This item usually retails for $99.95 for the lantern alone. If you host a Partylite show that pulls in at least $500, there is sometimes a special where you can buy it at a discounted $35.00. Based on the craftsmanship of the Weathered Zinc Lantern, I think that’s a very reasonable price.

  4. we so much like to sign up for the free give away as I love Partylite candles & gifts. I have several items in my home from Partylite as well as gifts I give, also candles. Their fragance lasts long after the candle is not lit & burn so cleanly. I love pure vanilla creme, calm waters, & my all time favorite is sun kissed cotton. Smells like fresh lines after drying in the breezy, sunny day.

  5. I would choose the Ocean Mist & Seaside Mist fragances…we went to the beach in June, and I am longing to go back..

  6. I am torn between the bird of paradise, black orchid, vintage leather, and Tamboti Safari. They all sound so yummy smelling.
