Waldorf Birthday Ring Set

Originally a German tradition for celebrating a young child's birthday, many Waldorf-inspired families are now incorporating this simple but beautiful tradition at home.

  • 6 Pure Beeswax Candles
  • 6 Solid Brass Candle Holders
  • 6 Wooden Decorations: Angel, Star, Moon, House, Tree and Bunny

To create a truly special birthday celebration, drape a table with one of our beautiful Rainbow Silk Scapes, and adorn with the wooden birthday ring, flowers and other seasonal treasures such as shells for a summer birthday or acorns for fall.

The Birthday Ring can be used again in December as the base for an Advent Wreath.

More About This Product

I absolutely loved celebrating birthdays in my Waldorf kindergarten class, and I used a wooden birthday ring just like this one when telling the story of a child's birth.

I would place six candles in the ring, alternating with each of the six wooden figures.

As I told the child's birthday story with highlights from each year of the child's life, I would light one candle to mark each year. For example:

During Aidan's first year on earth, he learned to do many, many things. He learned to sit up, and then to crawl. He said his fist word, which was "Da-da" and he even took his first steps. That year his grandma came all the way from California to visit the family, and while she was there, Aidan celebrated his first birthday and turned one-year-old!

Here I would light the first candle, and so the story went on, lighting a candle for each year, up to the child's new age.

The six wooden figures included with the set include elements from the traditional Waldorf birthday story: an angel, the sun, the moon, a star (representing the child's heavenly life before birth), and a house, tree and a bunny rabbit (to represent his life on earth).

Choking Hazard. Small Parts. Not for Children Under 3.

"This Waldorf Birthday Ring Set is not only beautiful but magical. It's so unique and special which makes it the perfect birthday gift for my little toddler! I absolutely can not wait to present it to her along with the book (also gorgeous!) and make it part of our family tradition. To top it off, Sarah went above and beyond to make sure our order arrived in plenty of time (even though I ordered late and never even asked for a favor!) which is a true testament to her character. It's obvious she appreciates her customers and their business which is why I will continue to shop this store/website. "
