Creative Expression
Advanced Candle Making Techniques

Our brand was born from generations of handcrafting, woodworking, painting, and candle-making, so we know a thing or two about the value of artistic expression. Our Novelty Experiences invites you to transform wax into unique realistic candles inspired by our favorite themes—food, decadent sweets and desserts, refreshing beverages, seasonal nostalgia, and household décor.  

Each month, we introduce an exclusive new candle design, giving you the opportunity to roll up your sleeves and explore advanced candle-making techniques in this unique educational and playful experience.

What To Expect From
The Novelty Experience

Candle of the Month - Available Sunday through Thursday

Each month, we introduce a new candle design that guests can create, ensuring there's always something new to learn and explore. Whether we start the new year off with a celebratory coffee-scented espresso martini candle or a banana split that looks good enough to eat, there's a novelty candle in our line-up that will ignite your creative spark. Who doesn't want to add a succulent terrarium or bowl of ramen to their candle collection?  

View our calendar of our monthly novelty candle offerings. 

January Espresso Martini
We like to celebrate the beginning of the new year with a little burst of our favorite caffeinated boozy beverage, the espresso martini. Choose our espresso latte scent for the java buzz your nose will appreciate.

February FULL OF LOVE STRAWBERRY CAKE
This heart-shaped pink frosted cake smells like strawberry and vanilla, and is adorned with strawberries and multicolored sprinkles.

Our Most Popular Candle
The Cereal Bowl

Our Cereal Bowl candle is inspired by the colorful cereal O's of a childhood favorite—you know which one we're talking about. Due to its high demand, we offer this novelty candle making class every week throughout the year. Choose our recommended scent or explore our Scent Library to create your own sweet and sugary "milk base".
