One of the things I truly love about being back in the Atlanta area is reconnecting with old friends! Recently one of those fabulous friends and lifestyle blogger Tammie Reed of Talking With Tami invited me to join her and other girlfriends for a Sunday afternoon of candle making at Candlefish Atlanta.
Don’t you just love a girlfriends day?
What makes one even more enjoyable is making new friends while participating!
Candlefish (originally established in Charleston) is a new shop located in Atlanta’s Ponce City Market and was the site of this relaxing and educational afternoon with the ladies. I don’t know about you, but I am a candle junky and keep at least one lit any time I’m home! When we moved in a month ago candles were some of the first items I purchased for our new home, so choosing a fragrance and making my own candle sounded so exciting!
With donuts and champagne awaiting her guests, we spent time listening to Hannah from Candlefish explain the technique for making candles. While you think of melted wax and fragrance going into candle making, I’ve never stopped to consider there are temperature points and specific measurements at which to work and make the perfect candle.
We had the opportunity to check out the 100 different Candlefish fragrances, but thankfully if you know your specific taste in fragrances, they can steer you in the right direction! I’m more of a musky almost men’s cologne type of girl, so after checking out several scents in that category, I settled on #31. This was actually the first fragrance I smelled and immediately was drawn back to it!
While making the candles was fun and educational, I truly enjoyed the afternoon making friends and socializing.
The candle making class is a perfect opportunity for socializing with the girls. While there are any number of occasions for a night out, I’m looking at the possibility of a candle making class as the perfect bridesmaid’s outing before MacKenzie’s wedding in June!
