Planning a group event for the ladies can create a lot of stress - whether it be a baby shower, wedding shower, bachelorette party or simply a girls night out. All of these events are about building relationships and quality time together. Everyone is always looking for something new, unique and inclusive. As the planner of an event, the brunt of the stress falls on your shoulders to keep everyone happy. The venue, location, engagement, shareability, and cost all become major factors. We get that you have so many things to consider, that’s we’ve designed our workshops and events to check all the boxes and take the stress off of you, the planner. So here’s everything you need to know about booking your next memorable event with Yummi Candles.
Location is a key factor for any event. Finding a spot in Toronto that is centrally located with parking options, transit access and places to visit pre or post event can be daunting. Yummi Candles is located in the heart of the beautiful, Instagramable Distillery District of Toronto. This pedestrian-only landmark is set in quaint 19th-century buildings now housed by trendy bars, restaurants and boutiques like El Catrin, Cluny Bistro and Soma Chocolate. Surrounded by cobblestone streets, this picturesque area offers many options for dining, drinking and ideal spots to snap photos of your group to share with friends. There is no shortage of fun, style or convenience in the Distillery District.
Finding dates, pleasing everyone with location and researching venues is enough to worry about. The last thing you want is the “work” to continue through the actual event. We take the weight off everyone by providing fully hosted Candle Workshops. Your guests will be greeted at our fully licensed shop, poured a drink and guided through an incredible and memorable experience. During the workshop, our expert Chandlers will guide you in creating your own unique scented candle. You’ll learn how to combine fragrances with our proprietary blend of plant-based waxes and wicks. You will have the opportunity to create a customizable label for yourself or as a gift. The 1.5-2 hour workshop will also offer insider tips and information for candle safety, burning tips and interesting facts on candle making techniques and materials. Your instructor will ensure that the quality of your piece upholds the Yummi Candles excellence. Leave the work to us, and take in the moments and experience with your guests.
One of the biggest challenges faced when planning an event like this is keeping everyone engaged and feeling included. Nobody wants to invite their Mother-in-Law to a swanky club or their girlfriends to a lame tea party. We’ve created a rich, sensory experience and activity that spans across generations. Whether it’s a group of girlfriends with like-minded interests who want to have some wine and unwind, or a Grandmother and teenage niece of a bride - this is a DIY workshop that anyone can take away a memorable experience from.
