Candles have long been known for their therapeutic effects. This is why so many Americans love to adorn their homes with candles of all sizes, shapes, colors and scents. But have you ever thought of making a living through this delightful hobby of yours? If you want to set about running your very own candle selling business, then the answer will definitely be to start hosting a candle party. Not only will you have a good time, but hopefully get to earn some extra in the process.
- Search for a reliable supplier of assorted candles. The candle business is slowly booming, so you should not have trouble looking for business entities that are into this kind of buy and sell business. A few minutes on the Internet should help you in your search for suppliers of candles, candle boxes and stuff. Most candle businesses are run from home, so you should be able to readily talk with the proprietor himself. You should request a detailed list of candle products and accessories and their respective prices from your choice of supplier. Of course, you are most entitled to request discounts. This is especially true if you will be ordering the cool candles in bulk.
- Enlist the help of your supplier for the candle party you will be hosting. Most candle business owners have their own team of candle party organizers and coordinators. You can always ask for assistance from your supplier so that your hosted candle party will go as smoothly as possible. Of course, you will need to coordinate with the party organizer or coordinator about fun ideas for the candle party.
- Prepare everything needed for the candle party. First off, you will need to settle on a date that will be most convenient to all of your targeted guests. Next is to send them invites for the candle party. Of course, on the day of the candle party, make sure that you tailor your home to suit the number of guests you are expecting. You will need to arrange the candles in a way that they do not interfere with the goings on of the party. Also make sure that none of the candles are situated near flammable objects. Of course, a generous feast of hors d'oeuvres and cocktail drinks are a must for your candle party.
Once guests start arriving, then you can breathe easy and relax a little. Play your usual gracious hostess self, and make sure to make them all comfortable by introducing them to each other. Surely not everyone will readily order candles from you. Do not fret, as these things cannot be rushed. Bear in mind that the party is just your way of introducing the candle business to them. Follow ups can be done later by calling on them to make sure that they are updated on the latest on your candle business and ideas.
