KC Favorite | Creative Candles

Recently, I attended the Eddie Ross workshop hosted at Creative Candles.  In addition to learning how to make a simple and stunning table setting with candles and flowers, we learned all about the care that goes into creating the high quality Creative Candles.  

I left the workshop inspired - not only to set a table - but inspired by the passion and spirit that goes into operating a manufacturing company that creates something beautiful.  I've always been fascinated by how to create things - from crafty projects to factory assembly lines.  I even remember being mesmerized by the Crayola factory produciton reel featured on Sesame Street... I know, yikes.  So for me, this factory tour was a huge treat.




Behind everything great is passion - this company is no exception.  Led by husband and wife team Ken & Pam, the company is meticulously operated in every aspect of the business - from traditional methods and quality of materials, to innovative marketing strategies.   Here the president of Creative Candles, Ken Weiner, walks us through the process of making stately pillar candles.   Each candle is hand made, hand polish and hand packaged... a true craft.



Here is one of the taper drying racks for the candles - beautiful.  The colors are very sophisticated, don't you think?  There are a lot of people that do.  Creative Candles has a large national presence amongst interior designers, event planners, major retailers and brands - Nieman Marcus, Pottery Barn, Ralph Lauren, Martha Stewart... just to name a few!  Their candles have graced the tables of The White House, Waldorf Astoria, and countless dinners for celebrity parties and weddings.   



Here is the packaging center with some of the brand names for which they produce candles.  Notice the green candles hanging on the dipping racks - it would make a fun chandelier.
