For birthdays and parties and occasions of all sorts, my daughters treasure a homemade cake of exactly their favorite flavor, and handmade candles on top. We love the sweet scent of burning beeswax, and I especially love the fact that I made their special candles by hand of natural ingredients.

Let me make your special candles, too! Each candle in this birthday set of six assorted colors is approximately 4" tall by a little more than 1/4" wide. The colors in your set of six will be completely random, but no two candles will be the same color. If you'd like to order a different number of candles, please start a Conversation.

Each candle has an approximate burning time of 35 minutes, which makes them perfect as birthday candles and for all the little ceremonies and gatherings that young lives require. After a child has blown out her birthday candles, I enjoy carefully saving them until the next occasion--I love the thought that the same candles add continuity to our family's varied celebrations.

Children often play happy imaginative games with my unlit handmade fairy candles, but these birthday candles are thinner, and so a little too delicate for enthusiastic pretend play. For fairy ceremonies and other child's play, check out my rainbow fairy candles at http://www.etsy.com/listing/71636371/a-rainbow-of-rolled-beeswax-fairy

The set of candles will come to you in a hand-sewn drawstring bag, hand-stamped with my hand-carved candle stamp. Each drawstring bag is unique, and you won't receive the one in the photograph--your exact fabric print will be a surprise! Use the bag for gift-giving or for storage--I like the things that I create to be as sturdy and useful as they are pretty.

Natural playthings are a child's birthright. But beautiful, imaginative, purposeful things? Well, we all deserve those.

My cut-off date for orders for the Christmas holiday is December 15. Orders made after December 15 will be filled beginning January 2.
