August 22, 2012

You all know how I love to try new products to share with you. So you can imagine my delight to be asked to sample a candle product from Goose Creek Candle Company. Yay! I love candles!

I was offered to try any one of their 45 delicious scents to choose from. I chose Spice Cake which is one of their Autumn Collection scents. Spice Cake is described as the home baked goodness of a delicious spice cake with warm kitchen spices, baked apples, pecans, brown and vanilla sugar and a touch of chocolate caramel. YUM!! Goose Creek Candles are made in the USA and are the cleanest burning candles on the market. I really needed a scented candle right now to get rid of the stale air from using the air conditioner all summer. I don’t know if we have ever run the A/C so much in a summer. Thank goodness we had it- it was a very hot summer!

The Victorian Style jar is part of the American Heirloom Collection. Here is the link for the Victorian Collection here.  One of my favorite things I like about the candle is that the scent is very nice without being overpowering like some candles can be.

I also like that they are handmade and burn smokeless.  Another quality I was really impressed with is how pretty the jar was:

When looking through their website at the candles,take a look at their Glassware here.  They have beautiful jars for sale, globes and this idea that I loved:

Multi Size Pillar Base

These glass multi-size pillar bases made of glass are reversible so you can use it with more then one size pillar candle! Genius and only $5.00! I already plan to use them not only to hold candles but also use as small pedestals for my display groupings.

Thanksgiving Holiday Tablescapes

November 18, 2010

Only a few days away from the Holiday madness!  I wanted to share some pretty tablescapes to help get you inspired and give you a few ideas to jazz up your table.

My florist friend Valerie from Floral Arranging 101, suggested to buy two or three mixed bouquets (all the same) at the grocery store.  Divide up the flowers by color and type and then color block (bunching like with like colors) an oasis wreath.  Color blocking flowers add more impact.  Then add small pumpkins on skewers, pods, millet sprays, etc. Then place candles in the middle.  This looks great on a round table.

Family Gathering Centerpiece Flowers

For a rectangular table, Val suggests using three to five short vases and color block (bunching like with like colors) them down the center of the table.  No taller than 10 inches, so your guests can converse over them.  Or use candles as below:

PS.  If you have not seen the flameless wax candles, check it out here.  Great idea.  They are made of vanilla scented wax and run on batteries.  They even have a timer on them!  They are available in 4″, 6″ & 8″ heights.

I love to run table runners side to side like this above picture instead of always down the middle.  Very pretty and creative.

 So simple.  So beautiful.

Pretty soon I can start posting about Christmas tablescapes like below: Yay!

I hope that I gave you some ideas to use for your big day.  Remember to enjoy yourself!
