3 Ways to Ensure your House #SmellsClean for Holiday Guests


** This post is sponsored by Acorn Influence but all opinions are 100% my own. ** 


 The holidays are fast approaching, shoot, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW, is your house ready for company? 
I bet you have been cleaning, trying to make sure your house looks nice for your upcoming guests but have you thought about the way your house smells? If you have pets and children than does it SMELL clean? 

You tend to get used to the odors in your home and don't know if it smells so if you want to put your best foot forward for your guests, you also need to make sure it smells clean. 


While shopping, drop by the air care aisle where you will find NUMEROUS options to help make sure your house smells clean for your guests.
 There are so many wonderful holiday scents out this time of year so you are surely going to find something that you enjoy and that matches your holiday decor.

I want to share 3 easy things that I do to make sure my house smells clean. 
They are also super fast and easy to do, to make sure you are prepared for even those unannounced guests that drop by and will make your house seem warm and inviting.
 
I am a sucker for all things vanilla- vanilla cookies or cake, french vanilla, etc.- but around the holidays I like to infuse the scents that remind me of the season, like cinnamon, apple spice, and more.

Febreze NOTICEables are something that I always use in my house. 
I love the two scents and there are numerous scents to pick from. 

They last about a month, looks like I need to change my current one, and the holiday scents out there will make your holidays more festive.   
 

Don't have a Febreze NOTICEables oil plug, then how about an Air Wick oil warmer?
 I use these upstairs in my house to make sure it smells clean up there as well especially if we have over night guests. 

I don't use a super strong scent upstairs, just something that you will notice but that won't over power you.


Another option to use to make sure your house smells clean is to use wax melts in a warmer.
Turn it on in the morning and forget about it. That way if someone drops by, the scent has filled the house.

And lastly, I LOVE candles. You can quickly light them and in no time at all, you can smell the scent filling your home.
Glade has some yummy scents out there and the candles aren't huge so they can be placed any where you like. 

I like to place them in the bathroom that guests will be using to make sure it smells nice in there.

But you could also use some larger candles, that will help radiate the scent through your whole house.

I use larger candles on my kitchen island and it makes my entire house smell delicious. 


One tip:
Buy similar scents to make sure that they don't complete against each other and are too strong.
You want your guests to enjoy themselves and your food, not get a headache from the smell.


Now, head to the store, go to the air care aisle, and browse the selection before your guests arrive! 
Don't want to waste all that time cleaning if your house doesn't smell clean as well.

Glitter Ball Christmas Wreath

I shared this post over at Create.Craft.Love on Nov. 8, 2014.


I can't believe that the end of November is actually here and Christmas is around the corner and if you haven't done so already, decorating for Christmas is just a few days away!  Ahhhh!
Where has this year gone? Seriously?! 

I have a wreath tutorial for you today to add a little glitz and glamor to your Christmas decor in some fun, untraditional colors.


Last year I decided to add some untraditional colors into my Christmas color scheme by adding in some pinks, bright green, blue, and purple so when it came time for me to think about this wreath, I knew I wanted to create it in those colors. And when I spotted what I created it with... my wreath was born! 

It is simple to create just a little time consuming so here's how I created it:

Supplies:
- Wreath Form 
-Glitter Ball Vase Filler (I found these and bought 6 bags from Hobby Lobby)
-Large Glitter Bow (also bought at Hobby Lobby)
-Low Temp Hot Glue Gun (high temp can melt your Styrofoam!)

Lillian Vernon Product Review


** This post is sponsored by Lillian Vernon. All opinions are 100% my own. **

I recently had the opportunity to review a product from Lillian Vernon.
http://www.lillianvernon.com/
A terrific shop full of gift ideas for everyone in your life, home decor, outdoor decor, and much, much more! 

I browsed the items available to me and as soon as I saw this item I knew I would have one SUPER happy little girl on my hands if I got this for her.

I picked the "Supermodel" Doll-in-a-Pink-Trunk with Accessories and I was so anxious for it to arrive. I had to wait to see it until we got back in town from TN but it was the first box I opened when the mail lady delivered our mail.

I opened the box and saw this adorable little trunk waiting inside.

You can personalize many items on their site, for FREE, so I had Miss P's name put on the trunk.

When you open the trunk, you'll find a pretty little doll inside along with all her accessories just waiting to be played with.

Miss S' Owl Birthday Party Decorations

Yesterday I shared pictures of Miss S' first birthday party
Today, I want to share with you all the details of the party itself. 

 I shared this yesterday but wanted to include it in this post as well. 
These are the invitations I created for her party. 
I wanted to do an owl theme. Thought it would be cute for a first birthday in November but wanted to keep the colors girly and bright.


Since we would be in TN for the party, I had to think about my decorations way in advance to make everything to mail to my parents house or take with us. Then I had to figure out where everything would go.

Guests were greeted with this owl wreath holding a chalkboard saying "Sadie is One!" on the front door.

My parents have this buffet by their front door so it was the perfect place to add a basket full of the favors and some pictures of Miss S.
