Upgrade Your Thanksgiving Table Settings

As I prepare for Thanksgiving next week, I’ve been hunting for new table setting inspirations from around the web and in all my favorite magazines. One trend I’ve noticed? Candles! It’s true, there’s just something about a Thanksgiving table that calls out for beautiful, cozy candles. I liked some of these decorating ideas from Real Simple, which style speaks to you? For me, I’m all about the vintage mishmash and I think I’ll pair it with our new Wood candle, a terrain-exclusive pour. This sizable candle is scented with sweet, musky sandalwood and housed into a rugged, bark-covered vessel. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together and so looking forward to time with great friends, family and food!

Linnea’s Lights gets wick-ed for Halloween

The leaves have started to change and it’s finally beginning to feel like Fall. The kids are throwing around the cutest Halloween costume ideas and I’m happy to be thinking about ways to decorate the house for the occasion.

For this I turn to the professionals at Martha Stewart and see what D.I.Y. projects the family can work on together to make this home a Haunted House! This year, I’m loving these adorable vampire and bat pumpkins, petrified potion displays (which remind me of some of the beautiful bottles we use in the studio), and these “shocking” silhouettes which will fit perfectly above a cluster of our Linnea’s Lights Pumpkin candles!
