If you are like me, you can’t believe how quickly the holidays are approaching. Before we know it we will be opening up our home to family and guests. With Thanksgiving in about a week and a half, this is the time of year where we all try to get our home ready for holiday entertaining.
A few months ago I introduced you all to a new line of candles at Walmart by Yankee Candle called American Home. If you have not smelled these candles at your local Walmart store, you may be missing out. These candles smell amazing! One of the primary focuses for me when I prepare my home for holiday guests is on scent. The power of scent is unmistakable. One definitely wants to keep scent in mind when it comes to inviting guests into our homes as it is the first impression guests get as they enter our home.
Of course, the type of scent is up to your own personal preference. I like to stick with nice, clean, fresh fragrances when choosing scents for my home but when it comes to the holidays I definitely like to change it up with different scents that match the holiday that we are celebrating at the time.
Take for example, Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is such a warm, cozy holiday filled with lots of laughter and time spent with family. Amongst more traditional home scents, American Home by Yankee Candle also offers a variety of holiday scents as well. For Thanksgiving I picked up two holidays scents from American Home by Yankee Candle at my local Walmart store that I think will smell amazing together: Delicous Cranberry and Sage & Red Berry. With all of the delicious foods of the holidays I think these two candles will not only add a festive touch to our dinner table but also a welcoming scent to our home for the holidays.
American Home by Yankee Candle can be found in Walmart stores or on walmart.com for less than $15. Along with a variety of scents, American Home by Yankee Candle also comes in a variety of sizes. Large 19 oz. jars, in scents like Sage & Red Berry for the holidays, are just $14.93 with a burn time of approximately 100-125 hours.
My personal favorite candle scents from American Home by Yankee Candle for Thanksgiving are: Delicious Cranberry, Sage & Red Berry, Fresh Apple, Ginger Pumpkin Pie, and Pumpkin Apple Harvest. Whether you are entertaining guests for dinner or just relaxing at home on a chilly night, one can easily find a candle scent from the American Home by Yankee Candle line at Walmart to match any mood.
