The Trend of Birthday Candles

The trend of using birthday candles was started during the time of ancient Greek, who used to place the candle on the cake that was offered to Artemis-the goddess of the Moon. The art of candle making was mastered by the Germans. During those times, the birthday candles used to be placed on the center of the cake and were believed to represent the ‘light of life’. Over the years, candles have emerged as a significant birthday party requirement. They have become an indispensable part of birthday celebrations. The traditional simple, long, and cylindrical style candles have received a serious makeover. Nowadays, Happy Birthday Candles come in innovative styles and designs.

The Magical Candles:

As the name suggests, these candles magically relight themselves when you try to blow them out. They add many giggles to the celebration when the celebrator tries hard to blow them out but the candles keep relighting themselves. You can buy them easily at any nearby party store or buy them online.

The Number Candles:

To represent the age of the celebrator, use the candles that come in the shape of numbers. A wide variety of colors and designs are available and therefore, finding something that will match your theme will not be difficult for you. The number candles were initially designed for people who do not want to put a lot of candles on their cake but want to represent their age. Nowadays, these candles are used by all age groups. The best part of using these candles is that they do not make the cake look cluttered. Rather, they enhance the look of the cake. Whether you need a 1st Birthday Candle or a 55th birthday candle, you will surely get good options.

Character Candles:

These are in trend nowadays. Whether Spiderman or Cinderella, you can buy candles in the shapes and forms of all popular animated characters. Since they beautifully blend with your party theme, people love them. Kids are especially fond of them, as they are available in the form of their favorite play character. There are various options of theme candles. If you want to buy 1st Birthday Candles, you can choose from a wide variety of themes such as Balloon theme, Block theme, Winnie the Pooh theme, Mickey Mouse theme, Minnie Mouse theme, etc.


Many people are using them instead of the regular candles; however, they are not recommended for toddlers and even for kids below 10 years. Although, these sparklers look stunning when they are blown, creating beautiful sparkles. These Sparkle candles come in many varieties including Gold sparkles, Color sparkles and Number sparkles.

The Future Trend

As the trend of celebrating theme birthdays is on the rise, the demand of themed candles is also swelling.

The candle manufacturing industry is therefore, expected to see a good financial growth in near future.

Secrets to Plan a Successful Birthday Party for your Child

Like any other celebrations, your kid’s birthday party needs meticulous planning and a thorough preparation. A slight negligence can spoil the entire fun and can become a reason for your child’s disappointment. Here are some tips that will smooth the way to your child’s birthday fiesta.

Choose a theme to make your work easier:

Instead of having a random decoration, go for a synchronized approach. For this, you have to choose a theme that will reflect your child’s choice. There are thousands of birthday party themes to choose from. While some are very simple such as pink party or sleepover party, many others are very specific and usually woven around a particular character or idea such as Princess party, Spiderman party, or a camo party. Choose a theme that your child likes. For example, if your child is an avid fan of Spiderman, use this as your party theme. Similarly, if you are the proud mother of a very feminine lady, choose a princess theme.

Workout your budget

This is the most important part of your planning. Your budget will decide the way things will be planned. There are parents who go all out and spend a fortune, whereas many others do not prefer spending more than $ 200-300. Finalize a budget but keep it slightly flexible.

Decide the venue

After budget, the next big thing that needs to be decided is the venue. It can be your backyard, a park, or a party hall. For a small gathering of 15 to 20 people, your backyard will be the best; however, if you are celebrating it in a grand way, host your party outside so that all the guests can be accommodated comfortably and entertained in the best possible way without bothering about the mess.

Plan the party details and order the supplies accordingly

You have to do it in advance so that the required birthday supplies are there with you before the big day. Plan your decorations completely before you order the supplies so that you don’t miss anything. Consider if you want to design your own invitation or want to go with the store-bought ones. The tableware, party table decoration, wall decoration, happy birthday banner, thank you cards, party bags, favors, etc. have to be planned minutely. Make your notes on how you will be doing the decorations so that you don’t get confused. Decide the party menu and order the cake in advance.

Send out the invitations at least two to three weeks before the party so that the little guests can plan their day accordingly.

Inform them about the theme of your party so that they can set their expectations. If you are having a costume party, mention this in your invite.

Keep your preparations on while waiting for the big day

Revise your notes regularly to find out if you have missed something. Set deadlines for things and stick to them. Do not leave anything for the event day except those things that shouldn’t be done beforehand.

Kids look forward to their birthday parties and want to get involved in the party planning process. Encourage them to share their ideas and wherever possible, incorporate them. They know what their guests will like and can help you plan something that they actually want.

Dora Party Decoration that Will Get the Guests Into An Adventurous Mood

A Dora the explorer party demands some adventure, exploration, and discovery. Since, the decoration sets the mood of your guests, you must make arrangements that excite the kids and get them into the party mood. Only using the Dora birthday party supplies such as theme balloons, tableware, banner, etc. will not work. To have a realistic Dora adventure, you must transform your party venue into Dora’s exploring ground. Here are some decoration ideas that can help you to plan a rocking party.

Entry Door Decoration

Buy a monkey shaped airwalker and place it just near the main door. Place a signboard saying ‘Vamonos! Dora’s friend Boots is here to welcome you. Please watch your steps’. Above the door, hang some die cut green vines to give it a jungle entry look.

Create obstacles for the little explorers to pass

Just as the kids enter the party area, ask them to cross a lake. Place water gossamer or a child bath tub and name it as Crocodile River. Put some stools inside the water that the kids can use for crossing the river. Tell them that there might be some crocodiles in the water and occasionally play the crocodile sounds in the background for scaring the kids.

Create some more obstacles such as escaping from a lion’s clutches and going through a singing gate. Do not restrict yourself to the obstacles that you can find in the Dora series. Just think of something that you would want the kids to do and make all arrangements for it.

Transform your home to give a feel of a Forest

Decorate your walls with green streamers. Dedicate one corner of your venue to make it look like a dense forest. Place some fake plants and add green streamers, die cut vines, etc. along with your child’s stuffed animal toys for giving it a jungle look. In front of all these, place a life-size cutout of Dora. This setup can be used for photo prop as well. A great idea would be to use a Dora shaped piñata instead of the cutout so that you can use it for the party game.

Let the kids feel the presence of wild animals in your party

To make the kids feel as if they are in a jungle, play the sounds of the wild animals occasionally in the background. Place some life-size cutouts of animals at some strategic locations.

These Dora birthday party ideas will help you to turn your party area into spooky forest and set the stage for an exploratory event.
