A huge thank you to everyone who joined in with our Lily-Flame Perfect Christmas Competition.
Your entries on Pinterest were both inspiring and beautiful. We were impressed by how much time and effort had gone into every board that was submitted. We also loved the fact that although each one was about Christmas, you had truly taken to heart the idea that it was about YOUR perfect Lily-Flame Christmas. Each board was a unique work of art. It has given us loads of ideas for celebrating our own Christmas here at Lily-Flame HQ! You have covered everything from the perfect vintage Christmas, to a modern, sleek Scandinavian style Christmas, truly something for everyone.
We were also delighted with the range of Lily-Flame products you chose to represent your perfect Christmas. We have over twenty candles in our winter/Christmas range, but there were some unusual choices amongst your festive picks which on seeing your ideas, really made us think about our scents in a different way. You have really embraced the creative side of what we do, and shown us how Lily-Flame can be a perfect fit for every celebration, whether you go for a traditional, look, like Emma, with her scarlet and snow theme, and her use of our most festive candles, Christmas Spice, Ho! Ho! Ho! and Cranberry Crush, or Katie’s Narnia themed board with gloriously icy Silent Night, Over The Moon and Fairy Dust to add a bit of shimmer and mysterious sparkle to Christmas this year.
We are very, truly, sad that there could only be one winner for this competition. It closed on Sunday at midnight, and we were due to announce the winner on Monday morning, but there was such heated debate amongst the team here at HQ that we didn’t actually announce the winner until yesterday evening. We do love running competitions but it has to be said that being judges is not something we embrace. We are aware of how much hard work and thought went into what you did, and we would say again, that we loved each and every one of your entries.
The winner, however, had to be chosen, and in the end we have given our vote to Hannah Igoe’s beautiful board. You can check it out here.
Hannah picked all variations of our Christmas Spice scent to theme her board around. We felt that she really summed up what is the essence of our best selling Christmas scent. Her theme was crisp and festive and beautifully curated. Her ideas were traditional and yet translated in a very modern, workable way, and we felt that this really sums up what Lily-Flame is all about.
Best of all, we could imagine ourselves having a fantastic Christmas if Hannah was in charge!
Well done, Hannah!
Hannah is the lucky winner of twelve scented candle tins of her choice, which will be winging their way to her this Christmas.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our competition. We will be running more in the New Year. We’d love it if you’d join us.
All that remains for us to do now is wish you the Perfect, Lily-Flame Christmas.
