Baptismal candles

Candles for baptism from “Mommy’s Sunshine”: bright like sun, warm like hugs

Christening is a touching ceremony and every detail has a deep meaning. Candles are no exception. Godparents hold them during the ceremony. It symbolizes their readiness to become mentors, who will illuminate the baby’s life path with their wisdom and warmth.

In Ukraine, it has been believed that a christening candle also has a powerful positive energy, so after the ceremony it was carefully kept and lit when the baby was sick or fussy.

We offer a wide selection of decorative baptismal candles. They will decorate the ceremony, and can become a family heirloom after it:

Frequently asked questions when buying baptism candles
How many candles do I need for the baptism ceremony? Are candles provided at the church?
At the minimum, you need to have 2 small candles – one for the godfather and one for the godmother. Of course, you won't be left without candles if you don't have decorated ones. The church will provide plain orange candles. However, in our opinion, decorated candles look much better.
Can the embroidery on the napkins be in a different color than shown in the photos?
Yes, you can order embroidery of our designs in any colors that match your attire or the baby's clothing.
Can I buy only the decorations for the candles?
Yes. We understand that you may have your own candles. That's why we offer the option to purchase candle decorations separately, without the candles.
