About us

Welcome to Celebration Candleshop, your source for candles to celebrate any occasion. 

We are proud to have made our candles in the United States for over 30 years. Our trademark countdown birthday candle has been a family tradition for many of our customers for generations. We love to hear from great grandmothers who had the candle as a child and have bought them for their children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren! See the history of this candle in the video on our homepage.

Our wedding and other special occasion candles can be as unique as you want them to be.  You can order one of our stock candles or add your own image or photo, personalization or even a poem. 

We love being part of our customers' milestones... a wedding, a new baby, a first birthday or a 50th anniversary! It is wonderful to be a small part of these joyful times in people's lives.  

My husband and I started our business in Pennsylvania in 1980 as WaxWorks. Candles for celebrations were some of our first products, followed by many other types of candles, from fragranced jars to bakery candles to private label candles. We downsized our business in 2012 and moved it to North Carolina.  It was an easy choice to go back to our roots and specialize in candles for celebrations.  Thus was the origin or our new name, Celebration Candles. I lost my husband to cancer in 2021. I am proud to be a woman owned and run business and to continue the business he and I started together so many years ago.

We strive to provide you with the perfect candle for your celebration, whether it's a birthday, a wedding or the celebration of the life a loved who has passed on. If we don't have exactly what you want, please contact us and we will do everything we can to create it.
