Imagine the most perfect Christmas Eve ever, one illuminated by the soft glow of lantern light on sparkling, new-fallen snow, made even more peaceful by the twinkle of a star-filled sky. Now, you can revel in the enchanting wonder of the holiday season and the beloved holiday artwork of Thomas Kinkade with the Sparkle of the Season Table Centerpiece Collection, an Always in Bloom® lantern collection featuring a first-ever design with starry string lights.
Celebrate the joy of freshly fallen snow, light filling the windows of gracious homes and old-fashioned lampposts and lanterns with this world premiere limited-edition illuminated collection exclusively from The Bradford Exchange. Your collection begins with Issue One, Love. Next to arrive will be Issue Two, Peace, and soon your collection will continue with Issue Three, Joy, and additional Thomas Kinkade lanterns, each a separate issue to follow.‡
Comprised of handcrafted, burnished metal in traditional designs, each lantern in this collection houses a fully dimensional, miniature sculpture recreating one of Thomas Kinkade’s classic holiday paintings. The inviting homes are meticulously handcast and hand-painted in intricate detail, and light up from within.
But it is the lights in the Christmas Eve sky above each home that truly make these lanterns shine. At the touch of a switch, each miniature sculpted house glows from within, while abundant white lights attached to nearly invisible thin strands of wire sparkle above each snow-covered holiday scene.
What’s more, crowning each lantern is a handcrafted Always in Bloom® poinsettia and pine arrangement, tied with festive holiday bows and rivaling the look and feel of the real thing. The perfect focal point in any holiday table decoration plan, this collection is ready to brighten your holiday decor year after year, season after season.
