Candle Making for parties and events

We love candle making, it’s one of our most popular activities for parties and events – maybe because everyone loves the end product so much.  Obviously we’re all for individuality and creativity, but when it comes to wax though, we’re purists – we go for plain white, no artificial dyes or marbling effects for us.  However, elements we do like to play around with include scent; we have a good choice of scent, gorgeous florals like rose, lavender or geranium, spicy, warmer scents like vanilla or fig, or citrusry like orange.  It’s fun to blend scents too – vanilla and rose is wonderful!   Finally what to set the candle in?  We know there are a myriad of candle moulds out there – and for those who want their candles in the shapes of bananas, pyramids or entwined figures.. then we are not the people for you.   We offer simple, classic glass votives in either plain or fluted Art Deco style, or a silvery distressed votive as well as a beautiful selection of vintage teacups – and we even have been known to use a Moroccan bowl.. but never a banana mould!
