It’s Pumpkin Time!

Order comes in where Summer chaos reigned. We enjoy the Fall bounty — apple tarts, pumpkin pies and oh so many other goodies! The leaves change from green to pale yellow, cinnamon reds and shades of orange. The grass is no longer the enemy as the lawnmower gives way to the leave blower to tame the now falling leaves. The brightly colored beach ball surrenders its hold on us  as now the brown pigskin on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays commands our time now. Autumn. Autumn hayrides and haunted houses are on the way.

This Autumn, we have a large collection of harvest time scents and decorative candles coming your way. Let’s take a moment to look at a few of our favorites, both past and present.

Decorate with Pumpkin Candles

Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere:  This year we have our very own Halloween patch of choices for you to choose from:

  • Cement pumpkins that are really authentic-looking. These candle comes with a top that you can use to extinguish the flame or after the candle has been spent, it can be used as a decorative piece all year round. Just too adorable!
  • Shiny ceramic pumpkins that really enhance a space. We really love the polka dotted pumpkins and the burning time (almost 250 hours) means that we’ll always have light.
  • Wax pumpkins are also available for traditionalist who like their candles in all their waxy glory. We’ve left these beautiful pumpkins unscented for our customers who love the look, but don’t need an extra fragrance in their home.

Spooky Candles: It wouldn’t be Halloween without the spooky, so this year we have a ghostly ghoul of a candle, along with a little Trick or Treat and Boo! to keep visitors hopping as they come by for their candy tribute.

Perfect Cupcake Toppers: Last, but not least — since we sell out every October — are these cupcake candles.  Choose the black cat, pumpkin, bat or ghost candles to top off your pastries. Can’t choose just one? Not a problem, just mix and match them to suit your audience. Of course, these candles are unscented … I mean who can compete with your tasty treats?

Scents of Autumn

The harvest season wouldn’t be complete without scents of the season. Here’s what we have in store for you:

  • Toasted Pumpkin Spice: Comforting and sweet with just the right amount of spice, our Toasted Pumpkin Spice fragrance will remind you of autumn festivals, pumpkin carving, and bonfires.
  • Pumpkin Chai:  is a sophisticated fall fragrance with an invigorating spice flourish. Fragrant top notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange peel intermingle with the clove and black tea. Baked pumpkin makes up the heart of the fragrance, while vanilla and graham cracker base notes add a creamy, toasty character.

And remember, we’d love to see how you’ve used our candles this Halloween. Share your pictures to Instagram and tag us @customcandleco. We’ll repost your photo on our social media feeds and help you show off your style.
