what people say...
Our group had a lot of fun making candles - the space is welcoming and the owner and her staff are friendly and patient. Helpful communication is provided in advance of the event and it was all very easy to coordinate. I would definitely bring another group in!
I had a private candle making party and it was awesome. My guests and I loved the experience. Lita was easy to work with and very accommodating. And, of course, the candles are amazing. I'm so glad they opened up here in Oak Park!
Hosted a really fun event with our corporate team, and Lita and her staff were amazing from start to finish. Highly recommend Einnim for a fun and unique event! Thank you Lita!
Thank you to Einnim, Lita and her team for hosting such a special event for my daughter's 13th birthday! She and her friends had an amazing time. Everyone at Einnim was so welcoming and helpful!
My daughter celebrated her 17th birthday here with her friends. It was a fun and memorable experience. The girls said they had so much fun. The owner and her staff was absolutely amazing, helping me setup for the party. They were very patient with helping the girls make their candles and just dealing with nine crazy teens LOL. Thank you so much for making her 17th birthday a memorable one. I recommend everyone go check out Einnim.
How many guests can attend?

When can I host my private party?
Private parties can be held Tuesday-Friday beginning at 6 pm, Saturdays beginning at 7 pm and Sundays beginning at 5:30 pm. Book yours today before it's too late!
We ask that private parties are booked more than a week in advance to ensure that our team is properly staffed and we can provide you and your guests with the best experience possible.
What should I bring?
If you would like to bring decorations, food, beverages, etc. we are more than happy to help with the setup. We ask that you arrive at least an hour before your event to ensure that there is enough time to make your event look perfect!
Please let us know if you plan to have food catered for the event at least 1-2 weeks prior to the event. We will work with you to have the food delivered and prepped as desired.
If requested, we will provide two tables, black table cloths, a large carafe for iced beverages, utensils, plates, napkins, and a cooler with ice for any additional beverages. Please let us know if you will require these services.
What should I expect?
Your party will begin promptly at its designated time. Einnim specialists will provide a brief introduction and explanation of the candle-making process.
Once guests have been briefed, we will start our custom blending sessions with 2-4 guests and continue on until all guests have made their custom candles. Each group will take approx.15 minutes.
The last hour of your private party will allow for food and beverages to be served (if applicable).
We will handle the clean-up while you and your guests enjoy a private shopping session!
If your guest's candles are hardened by the end of your party, they can bring them home! If not, guests can pick up their candles at any time during business hours. Guests can also opt to have their candle delivered (free shipping).
How much does it cost?
The total fee ranges from $450 - $875. We require a non-refundable deposit at booking. Final payment will be due at the end of your event.
Please note that an additional $50 is charged for every additional 30 minutes.
Your guests can also enjoy 30% off their entire in-store purchase at the time of the event!
