A BAYBERRY CANDLE BURNED TO THE SOCKET...

December 31, 2017

I'm always looking for cute little gift sets that have meaning... to gift large groups of people... that don't cost a fortune.  I know - that's a lot of requirements to meet.  And every once in a while someone introduces me to a new tradition that I just have to pass along.  

 

If you don't know about the Bayberry Tradition it's time you get familiar.  A bayberry candle timed to burn down after midnight on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve will bring health to the home & wealth to the pocket for the New Year - or here's to hoping... at the very least it makes a cute gift & an even cuter tradition.  

 

 I started out with this card explaining the tradition.  

 

 I purchased black matchbooks from Etsy to personalize - hopefully your handwriting is better then mine!

 

 

I got these mercury glass votives for really cheap at a bridal expo & purchased my bayberry candles from Yankee candle.  I really suggest a votive because a jar candle or even a taper candle can burn on & on forever & it may be hard to time it so it doesn't burn down before midnight - ruining the tradition - or you're not up all night waiting for it to burn down - missing out on beauty sleep so you don't look your best on the big day!

 

 

Put the matches, votive & candles in a cellophane bag with some pretty ribbon.  

 

 

 

Hand stamp a gift bag.   

 

 And voila you have a pretty gift with a special meaning too!

 

 

"A bayberry candle burned to the socket brings health to the home & wealth to the pocket"

 

I have to say the people I gifted these to thought they were so cute & I can't wait to use mine New Year's Eve.

 

So what do you guys think... cute or a no go?

 

Cheers - Hal
