Candles to light up your event


YMCA Candle Event

It has been crazy this month of October between my photography show where my 4 pictures were selected at th NoMA gallery for the Selfless Selfies exhibition and getting ready for Halloween. At the same time I received an order for 60 candles delivered the first week of November, all orange in color and in jelly jars. The candles will be used for the YWCA Salute Luncheon for the Academy of Women Leaders, which will be held on November 7th.The YWCA-NYC Academy of Women Leaders Salute Luncheon is a celebration of the women leaders who inspire greatness from us all. One of the nation’s largest, most visible and important tributes to professional women leaders, the Luncheon is the premiere event for showcasing trailblazing women in business.

I was not prepared for this order however, I said immediately yes and I was confident that we would be able to deliver the order on time even though this is our largest order so far.

While working on our candles I couldn’t help taking some pictures of them.

Since the YMCA color is orange we used the Annie Sloan Barcelona Orange chalk paint  that we bought from Suite Piece the other day.

With the great help of Greg we were able to finish our big order more than enough time and deliver them before the deadline.
