How I celebrated Christmas with Yankee Candle
When I started sharing my passion for creativity and home decor I never imagined that two years later I’d be celebrating Christmas with Yankee Candle and some lovely ladies who appreciate candles and making a house a home as much as I do. Pinch me now…
Attending their Christmas event at a beautiful alpine lodge in the British countryside in November was an absolute privilege and since it’s the season of festive cheer I thought I’d share my experience so you get an insider scoop at how Yankee Candle does Christmas too!
Arriving at the venue, we were met by a beautiful outdoor snowy alpine scene leading to the lodge where a breathtaking cosy Christmas greeted us. With the room decked, the fire roaring, the festive tunes playing and the table set for a delicious Christmas dinner, it really couldn’t have felt any more festive. It was absolutely worth the 17 hour round trip.
The whole set up literally brought to life the Yankee Candle Alpine Collection and the divine smells of Evergreen Mist, After Sledding, Pomegranate Gin Fizz and Candlelit Cabin created that special warm and fuzzy ambience which brings people together during the most wonderful time of the year.
As if we weren’t feeling festive enough we were treated to a Christmas wreath-making class by Wessex Flower Co. followed by a three course dinner with all the trimmings! The candles were of course lit and we all enjoyed deciding which was our favourite.
A workshop on the art of fragrances was our final activity for the day and really helped us appreciate the commitment and work that goes into launching the perfect quality candle that people adore. I’ve lit these candles at home while hosting our nearest and dearest and so many have commented on the gorgeous smells.
I loved the Pomegranate Gin Fizz candle smell so much that I made the cocktail when I got home! (full post here)
