My kids have inspired me in so many ways. When I was a kid and the only child, my mom would throw big, fun parties. Now that I am a mom, I love coming up with a theme for their parties and design the party supplies. It is so much fun!

    Wow putting washi tape on birthday candles is brilliant! Never would have thought of that. I always hate the colours of birthday candles that you buy from the store but I never considered changing them.

      Hello Mellissa, wonderful that you will try to add washi tape to birthday candles :) One tip that I mention on my post is to leave space between the wick and washi tape, about 1/2 inch at least. That way when you light the candles, the washi tape won’t burn ;) Cheers,

    Just curious, i know you said to leave room so the tape wont burn, but is it okay if it does ? I wouldnt mind it burning as long as it wasnt dangerous, or had like a horrible smell or anything.

      Hello! Thanks for stopping by ;) Regarding the tape, I just don’t let the tape burn just in case the tape won’t burn nicely and ruin the candles or cake ;) If you plan of decorating a candle to burn for a while then I would decorate the candle holder with washi tape. Also votives look very cute with washi tape around them.
