The Countdown Begins! Can you believe that we're less than 10 days away from Christmas? Well, some of us don’t want to believe it because we still have gifts to get. If you still need an idea of what to get someone; you can never go wrong with a scented candle.
As the end of the year approaches, many people are looking for ways to ring in the new year with style and flair. One fun and festive way to do this is by incorporating candles into your celebrations. In this blog post, we will explore how you can use candles to "blow out" 2022 and "light up" 2023, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for your holiday festivities.
A candle is a great gift to give someone because it’s beneficial and very useful. As we always say, who doesn’t love a fresh and blissful scent. If you finished all your Christmas shopping; gift yourself with a fresh candle. Give your house that peppermint or hot cocoa scent and I bet when you have your Christmas parties, your guests will be asking what smells so good when they walk through the door!
Not only are we counting down until Christmas, we are two weeks away from saying goodbye to 2022 and rejoicing that it is 2023! What a year it has been, of good times and bad times. Those scented candles will be beneficial for the new year because you want to have a new fresh smell in your home; the atmosphere to be cleansed.
The first step in incorporating candles into your holiday celebrations is to choose the right candles. Choose scents that evoke a festive atmosphere: When selecting candles, consider scents that will help set the tone for your celebration. For example, you may want to choose candles with scents like cinnamon, vanilla, or peppermint, which are all commonly associated with the holiday season.
Blowing Out 2022
Now that you've chosen the right candles, it's time to incorporate them into your New Year's Eve celebrations. One fun way to do this is by "blowing out" 2022 using candles. Here's how:
Create a countdown centerpiece: To create a centerpiece for your celebration, group together 12 candles in a variety of colors. Number each candle with a sticker or marker, starting with "12" and counting down to "1."
Light the candles: At the stroke of midnight, light all 12 candles. As the candles burn down, each number will disappear, symbolizing the end of the old year and the start of the new one.
Make a wish: As you blow out each candle, make a wish for the new year. This is a fun and festive way to celebrate the new year with family and friends.
Lighting Up 2023
Once you've "blown out" 2022, it's time to "light up" 2023 using candles. Here are some fun and festive ideas:
Create a candle-filled lantern: To create a warm and inviting atmosphere for your New Year's Eve celebration, fill a lantern with a variety of candles in different sizes and colors. Light the candles just before midnight, creating a beautiful glow that will help you ring in the new year in style.
Use candles to create a path: If you're hosting a New Year's Eve party, consider using candles to create a path to your front door. Line your walkway with candles in paper bags, or use lanterns or votive candles to light the way.
Make a wish jar: To help you manifest your dreams and goals for the new year, create a wish jar. Fill a jar with small candles and slips of paper, on which you can write your hopes and dreams for the coming year. Light a candle as you make each wish, and watch as your dreams become reality in the year ahead.
Wishing a Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, & Happy New Year to Everyone!
Until next time,
