"Mini-me" needed to come up with some candles for a friend's birthday cake this past weekend.
Luckily, she picked the right mother for that. :-) I love birthday candles and always keep a sizable stash on hand...
Birthday candles are just one of those happy, little items, aren't they? They make for a fun and practical collection, too. You can certainly find them at party and craft shops, but I have actually found many of mine at bakeries (i.e., Peggy Porchen) and supermarkets! Whenever we travel out of the country, I also always make it a point to check out the local party supplies in the grocery shops. I've found some really pretty and usual ones this way. Here in the States, I have purchased some of my very favorites online at Shop Sweet Lulu and Caspari.
