Water Street Naperville welcomes Sea Love Candle Bar & Boutique this weekend
As fall arrives the hunt is on for the perfectly fragranced candle to usher in autumn, the holidays, to grace your favorite room or give as a gift.
Water Street in Downtown Naperville is pleased to announce the opening of Sea Love Candle Bar & Boutique, where you and friends, family or colleagues can design your own custom- fragranced candles while enjoying a libation, celebrating an occasion, or waiting for a table at one of Water Street's many award-winning restaurants. Sea Love is opening this Saturday, Sept. 16 and is currently taking reservations for individuals and groups at www.sealovenaperville.com/pages/come-pour-with-us
The mission of the Maine-based company is "To bring inspiration to our community & opportunity to create the life they love." That sounded like the perfect fit for Naperville according to Shefali Patel, owner of the Naperville boutique. "We did a candle-making activity with our whole family on vacation and had so much fun," she says. "Even our two teen boys enjoyed picking their vessels, fragrances, and then creating and naming their candles. It's really a great opportunity for all ages. We just knew this would be great for Naperville."
The candle bar offers the perfect opportunity for bridal showers, birthday parties, corporate teams, family outings or girl's nights out to enjoy this unique creative process. Sessions can be customized to take from 25 minutes to 1 ½ hours, where guests choose their container and three fragrances to blend from over 100 scented oils. Then they are guided in putting together their own candle or reed diffuser.
"If there's a wait for a table at a nearby restaurant you're going to, this is a perfect way to enjoy the candle making experience and be done in 30-45 minutes while your table is getting ready," says Patel. "The candles take two hours to set, so you could go off to dinner and then pick up your creation on the way home or the next day."
In addition to the Candle Bar, which offers a selection of beer, wine and seltzer, Sea Love includes a ready to go boutique including thoughtfully sourced decor items, candles, diffusers, warmers, fragrances, and gifts. "We are super excited to be opening on Water Street," says Patel. "With so much going on here, we know we are just going to add to the wonderful experience in Downtown Naperville."
