Blog giveaway 2013: Wicks and Willow

This giveaway has ended and the entries are closed. Thanks to all who entered!

Hey, y’all – it’s Courtney writing this morning. It’s my first post here at Invision! I’m so happy to be involved in the blog giveaway! As promised last week, we have our first giveaway ready to go, just for you! Today, we are happy to feature one of our favorites, Wicks and Willow from Melissa Johnson Warnke in Montgomery, Ala.

Melissa specializes in vintage-inspired hand-poured teacup and mason jar candles made with all-natural, environmentally friendly soy wax. They make perfect gifts with each candle wrapped and presented beautifully. My personal favorite are the mason jars in your favorite team’s colors. They make a lovely and unique hostess gift and a wonderful, personalized bridesmaid gift. And tell me, what southern gal doesn’t love a good mason jar?

Candles come in nineteen colors and twelve yummy scents such as Vanilla Buttercream, Pear Berry, Red Currant, Fresh Cotton and Lavender. Melissa can ship the candles anywhere in the world and even offers free order pick-up and delivery for locals.

So, in honor of all the excitement happening around here at Invision Events, Wicks and Willow is giving one lucky reader a custom mason jar candle for up to six of her bridesmaids! And don’t worry, we won’t say anything if you sneak one for yourself!

    I did #1 and #2. I love the idea of candles in tea cups and mason. Its such a unique and creative idea. Not only is it a candle but a nice decorative item.

  2. Alice says

    I did #1. #2, Melissa makes such an awesome product! I bought some of her tea cup candles for Christmas, and the recipients were so excited! Also, they smell as wonderful as they look! :)

  3. Tiffany says

    #1 and #2 done. I love the idea of a candle in a Mason jar and the number of color/scent options!

  4. ECV says

    Both one and two completed. I love these candles because they are soy and bc of the special fragrances available, not to mention the possibility of the candle being in a tea cup with a saucer. In some instances I might like the more casual mason jar candle!

  5. says

    The mason jars would add a nice touch to make a home feel warm and comfortable. I LOVE the tea cups; they remind me of living in England, very posh! I did #1, #2 and I am following InvisionWedding and Wicks and Willow on Pinterest!!

  6. Allison Crumpton says

    #1 and #2 done on facebook. Also following @InvisionWedding and @WicksandWillow on twitter AND following InvisionWedding on Pinterest. I love the candles! They should be a staple for every southern gal’s home. I’m getting married in August and my bridesmaids would be trilled to receive these unique gifts. And what do you know, I have exactly 6 bridesmaids!
