Special occasions call for beautiful things. When my children were baptized into the Greek Orthodox Church their godmothers brought them beautiful candles adorned with ribbons, bows, icons, charms and jewels. I was enchanted. And now I bring that enchantment to you.

This fun special occasion candle is a 15" white taper. The bottom is wrapped in 1/8 inch yellow satin ribbon. The bow is made from a satiny 1.5" white ribbon with dots in yellow and orange. The other side of the ribbon does a watercolor fade from orange to yellow. The bow on this candle switches back and forth to show off both sides of this cheerful ribbon. So joyful! Lightly wired ribbon gives bow a nice shape. My bows are tied, never glued. A small cross charm swings below the bow. Streamer flow well below the bottom of the candle and include four different types of ribbon: the wide orange and yellow ribbon, 1/8" yellow 3/8" orange, and a 5/8" yellow satin. A small bit of orange ribbon is tied at the bottom. There is still plenty of room at the top of the candle for a drip cup to protect you from dripping wax.

And Icon of your choosing can be added just above the bow at no extra charge and will not delay shipping (see sold orders for some examples). Recommendations include Christ's Baptism, the Wedding Feast, the Resurrection, or a patron saint.

A note about the pictures: To protect the bottom of the candles I stick them in a jar of beans. This conceals the very bottom of the candle. I do include one picture of the candle laying down so you can see the whole thing.

The candles I make are perfectly suited for sacramental use in the Eastern Orthodox Church but can be used by everyone for many special occasions. Candles can be customized for every event important to you. They are perfect for:
* Baptisms and baby dedications
* Chrismation and confirmation
* Candle light services
* Pascha and Easter
* Christmas Eve
* Other religious services and rites
* Non-religious special occasions
* Weddings
* Table decorations at parties and receptions

If you are interested in special colors, different candle size, sets or any other customization please message me. Beeswax candles are available in custom orders.

Embellished candles make sweet gifts for children participating in church services such as Christmas pageants, Myrrh bearing girls, and processions. They make a nice alternatives for bridesmaids to carry instead of bouquets. Matching sets can be made to use as unity candles. Pregnant moms often buy a special candle to light while in labor and then light the candle every year on their child's birthday. What a beautiful tradition. The possibilities are endless.

Because candles will warp and melt in the heat I will only ship these priority mail and only inside the united states. I am willing to ship to Canada but shipping is about $30. I pack my candles well and am not responsible for candles damaged because the postal worker left them in the heat. Please make arrangements for your candle to be properly received from the postal worker.
