Creative Candles is ready for the holidays

Updated: 2013-11-05T23:47:30Z

Kansas City’s own Creative Candles sent out its retailer catalog recently, showcasing its array of stock. Tapers are hand-dipped, and pillars, votives, balls and floating candles are hand-poured.

Highlights include Celebration Candles, which are superskinny tapers, 1/4 inch, that come in 6 inch and 15 inch lengths. Creative Candles suggests inserting them in cakes, jars of candy and buckets of sand. They come in 21 colors, including seven metallics.

The Hanukkah tapers are 3/8 inch in diameter and fit most menorahs. The cocktail gift set, which includes eight skinny 12-inch tapers and two glass cube candleholders, comes in 18 wax colors. It would make a perfect hostess gift or stocking stuffer.

One item in the catalog that’s not available to the public is a life-size chocolate brown foam Bundt cake to display the Celebration Candles. Darn. It would be perfect on a cake stand for birthday parties.

Creative Candles can be purchased online at or at nine local retailers listed on the website.
