What Makes It Awesome

Shades of Joy is run by Karishma Lalwani who makes these amazingly quirky candles out of her home that was set up in 2013. It’s not your regular off-the-mill pillar-like candles. Except you’ll find personalised candles in the shapes of Buddha, teacup and saucer, Vodka, falvoured ones in jars – basically in all shapes, sizes and colours. Their most recent product is a 3kg weighing rose gorgeous silver candle and we’re loving it.

Apart from these handmade candles, Karishma also makes unique candle holders and wooden platters. Though it’s a primarily candle making home business, they also do other cute home decor stuff. To place an order, you can get in touch via the Facebook page, or contact her directly. They deliver their products pan-India and standard courier charges are applicable.

If you, like us, are obsessed with everything and anything cupcakes – you’ll love the cupcake candles here. They’re life-sized cupcakes and wait for it…smell like an actual cupcake. They’re topped with glittery sprinkles and these candles are priced at INR 165 each. Unfortunately they are not edible but they sure smell yummy. We surely have our hearts set on these cute little things for the next candlelight dinner we’re planning on doing.

Karishma loves to create these beautiful candles herself and has been doing so since she was a teenager. Now her passion project is a business project and people can support in her this delicious endevour.
