The holidays are approaching, and my main focus right now, other than shopping for gifts, is getting my home ready. With Thanksgiving and Christmas and two birthdays in between, I really want to make an impression on my guests.
Yvonne Estelle’s has the most beautiful home decor, serving pieces, and now even items for the holidays. It was very hard to choose which items I wanted because really, I wanted it all. Everything is the highest quality, and I just love perusing a boutique from the comfort of my own home.
Candles are one of my favorite ways to add warmth to my home, especially around the holidays. So it was no surprise, to me anyway, that my selections would be based on my love for candles.
The first item I knew I had to have was the Vietri Bellezza Holiday Reindeer Votive Candleholder. I loved them so much, I got three. Made from terra cotta and handpainted in Tuscany, these beauties have that french country style I love and they’re only $16.00 a piece. When they arrived, they were smaller than I expected, so instead of displaying on my mantle with votives I decided to put them out in the powder room with tealights, and they look adorable.
When I saw the Thymes Frasier Fir 3-Wick Candle, I knew I had to have it. I always miss the scent of a real Christmas tree, but with a toddler, two cats, and lots of toys in the front room, it’s just not in the cards this year. At $46.00, it is definitely priced on the high end for a candle, but I do also know that you tend to get what you pay for when it comes to scent quality and burn time. And boy, was I right. I’m in love with this candle, it smells better than any other I’ve bought to try and bring in that fresh Christmas tree scent.
Yvonne Estelle’s has launched an online magazine which offers inspiration for giving your home that wow factor. Check out www.ImObsessingOver.com. I know I’ll be pinning the ideas that I find there!
