Candles for the Holidays


I love and use candles every day in my home, but especially enjoy them at holiday time. In Florida, I need all the help I can get to make the house feel Christmassy with temps of 80 degrees and palm trees swaying. So I love my home smelling like the season but in an elegant and sophisticated way.

My favorite by far both visually and for the scent is Holiday by Nest.

This exquisitely fragranced candle features the iconic scent’s blend of pomegranate, mandarin orange, pine, cloves, and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber. But the pine is quite subtle - I don't want my house smelling like Pine Sol. And the throw of these candles is outstanding.

The candles above were Limited Edition Nest Holiday candleholders with the glass Holiday candle nestled inside that I bought several years ago at Neiman Marcus. They are silver plated with gold stripes - so elegant.

Bloomingdale's is currently having their Friends and Family Sale with 25% off select items and free shipping. Nest is included in the sale. This is the perfect time to stock up on Nest for the holidays for your own home and for gift giving. 25% off is a really nice deal on this luxury brand. A Nest candle makes an absolutely perfect hostess gift.

  1. Hi, Beth ~
    Enjoy your posts every morning!
    I am looking for a teapot or tea set - any ideas? (For me, I like chinoiserie with colors other than blue and white - lol)
    Thanks so much,

    1. Pearl River Mart has many very well priced options.

  2. I am not sure if its your closet or a home you have done but the most fabulous large shoe holder. Was that custom made or can I purchase one? I live in Oregon so shipping maybe out of the question.

    1. I have no idea what you are talking about - this post is about candles?????????????
