Whether you’re having a decked-out dinner party or a simple girls night in, we have what you need to easily pull everything together, even in a pinch.

Getting Ready for Guests

The ambiance of your home is always important when you have guests coming. Tired looking holiday decorations, dim lighting, and odd smells from the kitchen can really put a damper on the holiday mood! Clear out your space and freshen everything up before your guests arrive-a winter centerpiece and bright candles always look beautiful. We love using our Forest candles at holiday functions. They’re bright and warm, and fill the home with the scent of pine and citrus.

Our other holiday favorites include ForestSweet, Harvest, and Peace on Earth. All are festive and cheerful and will transform your home into a cozy wonderland for winter.

Warm your guests up with a pot of our organic blended teas-if they aren’t a fan of coffee, they will love a cup of Raven or Artful! Get a kettle of hot water going before they arrive, and treat them to a warm brew to banish the cold of the winter. Add in a spoonful of our Eastern Shore Honey for perfect sweetness.

If you’re having your girlfriends over, you should most definitely treat them to one of our Dry Masks. Perfect for clearing away dry, dull skin and revealing a fresher, healthier complexion. A perfect way to get your evening started a glass of wine would pair with these masks perfectly.
