Baby It’s Cold Outside

Baby It’s Cold Outside and wouldn’t a candle from Wick-edly Sent make it feel warmer. We have been busy refilling our shelves from our Black Friday Sale and now have a great selection of our holiday scented candles along with the regular line.

Holiday Candles!

Rudolph called to tell us that Santa has packed on a few pounds and Dasher, Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Donner and Blitzen would appreciate it if you would not leave cookies and milk for the old fella seeing as they are tired of hauling him around. They would much prefer one of Wick-edly Sent’s Holiday Candles!Dasher and Comet like the comforting blend of Pumpkin and traditional spices in our Pumpkin Spice. Vixen, Dancer and Donner agree that the Balsam Fir reminds them of the North Woods where they grew up. Blitzen likes the refreshing blend of mint and luscious chocolate in the Chocolate Mint. Cupid prefers our delightfully fruity blend of Cranberry and Orange in our Cranberry Orange Candle which is also the November’s Scent of the Month! Prancer goes for the Blend of Bayberry, Spice, Clove in our Bayberry Candles. That leaves our Apple and Cinnamon in a glowing red that Rudolph just can’t enough of. They also wanted me to remind you that our Holiday Candles are made with soy wax that burns clean, evenly, and lasts 80-100 hours long! Comes Gift Wrapped in box with bow and our wonderful soy candles are made in our shop in Canandaigua! So let’s do our part and leave Holiday Candles for Santa instead of the cookies they would really appreciate...

Setting the perfect holiday table

I ran across these tips for setting a great holiday table and thought I would pass them along. We all want our holiday parties to be perfect. We plan a wonderful menu and cook and clean for days in advance. But many people spend all their time and energy on the food, and neglect the other important aspects of a party. Table d├ęcor and room arrangement are just as important as good food to the success of a gathering. Unfortunately, most hosts don’t think about these things until the last minute, and often just throw something together. Here are some ideas for creating a functional and attractive environment for your party, with some help from the experts at FoodTV.com. The best way to avoid stress is to put together a plan in advance. Think about where your guests will sit. Don’t try to cram too many people around a small dining room table. If necessary, add another table and cover them both with one long cloth. The point of a party is to provide a fun opportunity to socialize and that won’t happen if guests are squeezed uncomfortably together. If your chairs won’t fit, try using a bench on one side of your table. Another way to make more space is to place all the food on a buffet table. Set up one room as the buffet area, and once guests have been seated, move a few dishes to the table so people don’t have to get up for seconds. You can also set up a separate dessert table in advance, so you don’t have to worry about it...

Where has Fall Gone?

It is really hard to get into the Fall mood and make warmly scented candles when it is 80 degrees out! Whatever happened to Fall? I think we need to call in the blood hounds to sniff out Fall or we could just wait 24 hours and the weather will change. For those of you who haven’t been in the store lately our scents for this season are Pumpkin Spice, Apple Cinnamon, and Orange & Clove. So stop in and give your nose a...
