At Home for the Holidays with Glade

Thursday, December 10, 2015

There's something sentimental about the last couple months of the year. Yes, they are hurried with holiday shopping, menu planning and setting out holiday decor, but they are also a time to reflect on your family and friends and special memories you have made throughout the years.

I'm a candle lover by nature and always look forward to filling each room in my home with the new scents of the season. I love how each scent in the Glade®Limited Edition Winter Collection instantly reminds me of Christmas, hanging ornaments on the tree and spreading sentiments of peace and love.

Now that the holidays are upon us, I'm always looking for new inspiration for easy do it yourself projects that I can incorporate into my home decor. I love adding my personal touch and making the project "mine".

It's funny how that little thing called inspiration works. You never can tell where your next great idea is going to come from. As soon as I smelled the new Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection  scents, I knew they were the perfect inspiration for my rustic DIY holiday place setting. 

What I didn't know is that I would be plummeted with huge snowflakes during the first major Michigan snowfall of the year when I headed to Kroger! I'm used to unpredictable Michigan weather and thankfully I can cartwheel to my local store if I had too. How fun is this aisle display? I'm a sucker for a special Holiday display or an end cap sale. I picked up both the BE AT PEACE™ and CHERISH THE PRESENT™ scents. 

BE AT PEACE™ reminds me of a fresh cut pine tree and CHERISH THE PRESENT™ is the perfect holiday mix of apple and cinnamon. I always have a "jump off point" for my DIY projects so I played off these scents. I gathered up holiday inspired picks from my local craft store along with cinnamon sticks, twine and kraft colored napkins. 

I love how creative you can get with faux floral pieces. Gone are the days of fake looking silk picks. The options we have today are much better than those from years past and these gorgeous pieces look very authentic. The branches and acorn even have flocking!

I placed the holiday picks on top of the napkin, added a few cinnamon sticks and wrapped with twine several times. I completed the look with a tied bow in the front.

Holiday elegance doesn't have to be complicated. I lean toward simplicity and these rustic napkin place settings definitely follow suit.

Take a peek at other fun and creative ways to incorporate the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection™ into your home this holiday season!
