Children make hand-poured, fragranced candles using individual melters, adding dyes and fragrance oils. As the candles are setting, each child decorates candle holders and packaging with paint, glitter and pretty gems. Best of all, the children then take home a party bag filled with all the lovely candles they have made!
This is how the party runs:
The party is run by a “Chandler” (a professional candle-maker)
"It's all about candles" - how they work and a game of “guess the fragrance!”
Using individual melters, children make their very own candles adding colour dyes, fragrance oils and wicks to make two different types of candle
While the candles are setting they paint wooden tealight holders: a choice between hearts, cupcakes, butterflies, snowflakes, leaves, spiders, crowns ...and many more
They decorate a paper party bag with brightly coloured pens
Then finish the candles off with pretty packaging using organza bags and gems (for boys we have sport-themed stickers, animals and much more)!
At the end of the party each child takes home a party bag filled with all the fabulous candles they have made.
For younger children (under 8 years old) instead of melting wax, we use rolled beeswax candles and layered candles in a jar using wax crystals
The party runs for about 1.5 to 2 hours and can either be hosted in your own home or a hall/venue of your choice (you would book this part yourself).
Cost: Up to 8 children £175
