What type of candles are there for your children's birthdays?

There are a multitude of candles for children's birthdays.

Firstly, there are the classic cylindrical birthday candles. These are the traditional candles in the shape of cylinders, generally white in colour, but can also be pink birthday candles, for example. They come in different heights, from a few centimetres to a few dozen centimetres, and in different colours, and will look great on any cake as a happy birthday candle.

Then there are the number birthday candles, such as a pink number candle or a sequined number birthday candle. These are candles in the shape of numbers that represent the age of your child celebrating their birthday, such as a large pink number 5 for your little girl. They are often used for milestone birthdays, such as 1 year, 18 years, 30 years... but can be used at any age.

Letter candles are also on the market. These are birthday candles in the shape of letters that can be used to write a personal message, the name of the birthday child, or a message containing the letters Happy Birthday.

Candles in the shape of animals or objects are also available. These candles are designed to resemble animals, flowers, cakes or other themed Happy Birthday candles.

Magic candles are also known as sparklers. They produce sparkling sparks when you light them, adding a festive and joyful touch to your child's birthday.

Finally, there are LED candles, scented candles, glitter candles and personalised candles.

LED candles are generally flameless and use LED lights to create the effect of a traditional candle. They are ideal for birthday cakes where the use of a real flame is not desired.

Scented candles have pleasant fragrances that waft through the air when you light them, or personalised candles with special messages, photos or unique designs to make the birthday even more special.

The number birthday candle, the glitter birthday candle, the letter candle or the personalised candle and all the others will be perfect for celebrating your child's birthday. The options are virtually endless, and you can choose the ones that best suit your child's personality and tastes.

How do you choose the best birthday candle for your child?

Rêves et Merveilles offers a few tips and tricks for choosing the best happy birthday candles. When decorating your child's birthday cake, take the birthday theme into account. The birthday theme is the central element of the party. If you have a specific theme for your child's birthday decoration, you can choose candles that go with it. Choose a birthday candle set that coincides with the theme of the room. For example, animal-shaped candles for a jungle-themed party, or superhero-shaped candles for a superhero-themed party will be perfect.

Also, consider the age of your child. If you're choosing number candles to represent your kid's age, make sure you choose the appropriate number candle as your product. Number candles are available in different sizes and styles, so choose the one that best suits the age being celebrated and your toddler.

Also, consider the size of the theme birthday cake. If you've already chosen the candle birthday cake, take its size and shape into account when choosing the candles. Make sure that the candles you choose fit the surface of the cake and are not too big or too small.

If you want to add a special touch to the party, you can opt for musical candles, sparkling candles or LED candles to create lighting effects to make your child and their friends dream.

Finally, a few practical tips:

Think about the quantity and number of candles you need. Decide how many birthday candles you want to use. If you're using the birthday candle figure, one candle is enough. However, if you want to use cylindrical candles, you can choose to use as many as your child's years.

The materials used are also important when choosing candles. Birthday candles can be made of different materials, such as wax, plastic or even flameless LED candles. Choose the material that best suits your preferences and the atmosphere you want to create.

Finally, if you want to add an extra touch to the birthday candles, you can opt for decorative candle holders, confetti or glitter to make all the children at the party dream even bigger.

Don't forget that the main purpose of birthday candles is to celebrate and add a touch of joy to your child's party. Choose candles that reflect your child's personality and tastes.
