This is absolutely my favorite time of year. Hands down, what I look forward to every year. Nothing brings me more warm & fuzzy feelings than the holidays, and I mistakenly found those feelings last week. My new Illuminations catalog came in the mail and they have introduced a scratch & sniff feature, which is AMAZING! I burn, exclusively, Illuminations scented candles & the holidays in my house always smell like a mix of Cranberry Orange & Christmas Tree. The catalog came, I sniffed & eagerly went to my “stash” and dug up the holidays. I haven’t lived near an illuminations store in 5 years, but my kind little brother keeps me in stock, providing me with my favorites at every holiday. He brings me more joy than he knows!
So, eager to get the holiday smells in my home, and with a few Parisian Luminaries from a recent neighborhood Southern Living party, I went to work. I have a box of fall decor in the garage that doesn’t have a place in my new home. I grabbed a few of my favorite stems and started bending, twisting, weaving & snipping. I created the following for the center of my table. Now, my house smells & looks like the holidays! What can you re-purpose to bring this year’s holidays into your home?
