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!

Visiting terrain in Westport, Connecticut

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of visiting one of my favorite shops, terrain, in Westport, Connecticut.

The reason for my visit was to help celebrate the Heirloom Tomato Festival and Made in America Marketplace, which was a blast. We featured some of our special candle blends exclusively for terrain: Heirloom Tomato, Patchouli and Vintage Saddle.

I wanted to share some of my snapshots from the day with you and if you were unable to attend, you can still try one of our exclusive terrain candles at home! Pick up our Vintage Saddle candle here. It was a lovely store with a great staff, and I really had a wonderful time meeting some of our fans!

Entertaining Prep, as seen in GOOP

With holiday party season now in full swing, we’re always on the lookout for tips and tricks to help keep entertaining fun and stress-free. We were delighted, then, when we received Gwyneth Paltrow’s beautiful GOOP newsletter last week and floored when we saw our very own Cashmere candle staring back at us! We are honored and humbled and just beyond excited to have caught Gwyneth’s keen eye.

In addition to make us blush, the newsletter was chock full of helpful notes to keep the holiday crazy to a minimum. I love the idea of printing menus on bespoke papers, and using the ease of cleanup after a paper plate pizza party as an excuse to order in the night before the main event? Genius!

This particular newsletter is our recommended reading of the week. It was inspiring and productive all at once.

You can find our Cashmere candle with our friends at: Terrain, Candles Off Main, ABC Home, and many other fine retailers.

How are you planning on ringing in the holidays this year?

We are thrilled to let you know about our newest creation, a private Linnea’s Lights pour of Hydrangea in two colors of a custom clay pot (blue & purple). We created a letterpressed seeded cover to plant inside the vessel once the candle is finished and this special candle is now available exclusively at terrain.

Inspired by the early summer garden and poured especially for terrain, this candle boasts the scent of hydrangeas in bloom, mingled with fragrant lily of the valley and fresh, green notes. Nestled in a pretty clay pot, each candle includes a paper tag studded with wildflower seeds to plant once the wax has burned through. Combining natural soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks, and pure scents, Linnea’s Lights clean-burning candles are carefully hand-poured in small batches.

New Scent for Spring: Wild Honeysuckle

Happy spring! With March 20th ringing in the official start of the new season, say hello to sunshine, spring flowers, and longer days. In honor of spring, I’m excited to introduce to you our newest scent of the season: Wild Honeysuckle!

Inspired by childhood memories of searching for a single dewdrop at the center of fresh flowers under the warmth of the Texan sun. Sweet honeysuckle nectar mingles with leafy vines and a hint of mandarin and musk. Energizing.

Doesn’t it sound lovely? I like to have Wild Honeysuckle lit in the background to give me an extra boost of energy while I get myself ready in the morning. You can get yours here from Terrain, a terrific spot to find all things home, garden, and beauty. When do you feel most energized?

Linnea’s Lights featured in Rue Magazine

We were so honored to be featured in Rue Magazine’s beautiful new May/June issue, which hit the web yesterday afternoon.

Our delicate Sweetgrass candle fits right in on page 21, where interior designer Amanda Nisbet pulled together some inspiration for the garden party of her dreams. Don’t you agree?
