     Diwali, called the festival of Lights, is one of the biggest religious celebrations. Celebrations might vary in various parts of the country, but the conventional decoration of Diwali remains the same everywhere. Be it drawing beautiful Rangoli at the house entrance, hanging Torans on the archways or lighting up the whole place with diyas and candles. The long-established Diwali décor remains the same even after decades.

  • Pantry- Heart in a Jar

    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles



    Let’s get straight to the point! Who doesn’t dream of a fabulous looking pantry? Have you ever looked up how Khole Kardashian’s pantry looks like? If not then do it right away! Like all things Kardashians, it’s just perfect. This inspired us to create an exclusive range of pantry candles to add a hyper-modern feel to an otherwise simple pantry.

    No matter how small your kitchen is, find a space to create a panty, it will surely make handling of stock and your life easier. If you are considering restyling your pantry, read on! Here we are quickly giving out tips for a picture-perfect Pantry:



    • Commit to one color: If you are re-doing your pantry. We suggest you stick to one color. Decide the color value (refers to the darkness or lightness of the color). Dark colors tend to absorb light resulting in the space looking smaller. For an optimum look, go for soft-tones of off-white, blue and green.

     

     


    • Transform with wallpaper: If you think repainting is a lot of work then a simple DIY is all you need. Decide on the visual you want your pantry to have and go ahead and book the wallpaper accordingly. This will give your pantry a completely fresh look. 

     



    •   Easy Access: In a well-organized pantry it’s important that things are visible! We are talking about storage. Group things the way your family and you use them. Store food that is used on a daily basis in a place where it is easy to reach them. Maybe utilize the first two shelves and reserve the top shelves for bulk purchases or seasonal items.




    • The balancing act: Always make sure to use matching containers to give a very uniform look. This helps in providing a clear view. Get rid of the packaging for products like flour, cornflakes, and snacks. Use clear jars to store them or you could use solid colors and label them. This will make working in a pantry very efficient.





    • Draw attention to your pantry: This is our favorite part! A pop of color will add the subtle glam to an all-white kitchen. As mentioned above, we have an entire collection dedicated to the Pantry. Beautifully designed, these scented candles would fill your pantry with a refreshing and exhilarating aroma. The ivory wax when lit will push an instant pop of energy and make your cooking experience better. The pantry edition of candle sets the scene for a great gastronomic experience with invigorating scents that compliments all activities in your pantry. 

      Find our Pantry collection under Home and Garden at The Maeva Store.

     

    • Succulents can freshen the look of any space. Add a small succulent pot or a gather several of them to create a glamorous jungle. Our succulents are long-lasting, attractive and hassle-free. Find our Succulents under Florals collection at The Maeva Store.   

          
          
    • Last but not the least, Fragrance Sachets because why not?  These fragrance sachets instantly bring character to any space. Without a doubt, these sachets are a great choice for pantry storage areas, cabins and more. Find our Fragrance Sachets under Home Fragrance at The Maeva Store.

  • High Tea Party- A gorgeous time to catch up with your girls!

    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles



    How do you arrange a trendy, boisterous and happening kitty party?

    The trend of sophisticated High Tea Parties trails back to the 19th century when the ladies of the house met over tea in the evening to catch up. Ladies who love to spend some time in the evening with their closed ones have adopted this tradition across the world. The passion and elegance have remained the same while different cultures have adapted the concept of High Tea Parties with their own tweaks here and there.

    We’ve put together our top tips for pulling off your very own high-tea party with panache.

    Decide a theme: The key to a fun-filled soiree is to decide a theme- think of a theme, which is unusual, fun yet challenging! Themes like pirates, festival-based, Hollywood glamour are few examples, which will ensure your guests aren’t bored while preparing for it or while being at the party.

    Throw light on the theme with some interesting props: Set the scene with some eye-catching decor that reflects your theme. Example: A garden tea party would be perfect for summer evenings. Firstly you will need some gorgeous tea-ware that will be sure to wow your guest, if you own a cake stand use it as a centerpiece, add some artistic British Teacup candles to light up the table set up and throw in a bunch of fresh flowers.

    Decide the Spread: Make sure freshly brewed tea is set on the table ready to pour as your guests sit down. Tea is the star of the show of such evenings! Try to provide a variety of tea- Earl, chamomile, fruit, and herbal. Also, there aren’t any rules when it comes to food, but a standard high tea comprises of sandwiches, a layer or cake or cookies and teacakes. However, you could also throw in some scones, macaroons or biscuits.

     

    Make it memorable: Pop in some sugar cookies or the small sized teacup candles in attractive paper bags so your guests have a little present to take away!

  • Mother - A walking Miracle

    0 comments / Posted on by Maeva Candles


    If we know what love is, it’s because of our mothers. Mothers have unconditional love for their kids. A love that is selfless, altruistic, benevolent and bountiful. Being a mother is a full-time job: an unsalaried position, with non-negotiable working hours! They give up a lot for their position- the big things and the little things. Mother’s day is great opportunity to remind the women in our lives-“You are the most beautiful thing I keep inside my heart”

    But, how do we show appreciation to a mother? Maybe one day of undivided attention as she did when we garbled on about childish school stories? The truth is there isn’t anything that matches her compassion, poise, grace and patience but we hope we can make your day brighter and sweeter just like she always did. This Mother’s day, buy the nurturer in your life our exquisite, ‘Mother’s day’ candle and fill her home with the comforting fragrances of Green Apple and Pear.

    Here are few simple ways we suggest to pamper and spoil your mother on her special day!

The heart of the fragrance is sweet and tangy apple, beautifully combined with light and refreshing pear to provide an uplifting effect. 
    • In order to make sure the kids are getting all they need, a mother gets ignorant about her needs (well, most of the time). She forgets to sit back and unwind. So what you need to do is make sure that your mother takes a break from superwoman duties and put her feet up! All she needs to do is look after her today and maybe you can give her that push by booking a lavish Spa session. A day of pampering will totally bring back that glow she deserves! To give it a personal touch, bring the service home. For an exclusive experience decorate the spa space with our “Mother’s Day” candles and fill the room with the comforting fragrance of green apple and pear. Now let your mother relax and loosen up!
