Now that you’ve spiced up your scents,
it’s time to spike those beverages.
One word: BOURBON. Add it to hot
chocolate, apple cider or coffee, as it
works with most warm beverages. Or
brew a mulled wine on the stove by
combining a bottle of red wine, a few
cups of apple cider, and spices like
cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg. This,
too, will make your house smell yummy
and it’ll give you a tingle that’ll have you
yearning for holiday tunes and snuggling
as the temperatures drop.
SPICE UP YOUR SCENT.
Fall candle and air freshener scents
don’t always have to be so predictable.
Enough with the pumpkin spice already!
Bring in notes of sandalwood, amber and
cloves. If you like a little tradition, go for
the apple cider scent at Yankee candle.
For a mouthwatering aroma that will last
all evening and smell just like Williams
Sonoma, try the following recipes on the
stove for a special night of entertaining
with these simmering scents:
In a pot, mix together 3-4 cups of
water, orange peels, cinnamon,
nutmeg, and cloves and allow to
simmer all evening. For a fresh scent,
mix together 3-4 cups of water, lemon,
some rosemary sprigs, and a spoon
full of vanilla. Cranberries, oranges,
and spices like cloves can be mixed for
a more festive scent, too, and as the
holidays roll in, work in a combination
of pine or cedar twigs, bay leaves,
and nutmeg. You’re sure to have the
yummiest smelling home on the block.

Take your entertaining outdoors and
sit around the fire pit and enjoy the
fresh scent of roasting marshmallows,
crackling logs, and the sounds of
laughter and togetherness. Pick up
outdoor cushions from the end of season
sales for next to nothing, and dress up
your chairs with those blanket scarves
that don’t get worn nearly enough. They
truly double as small blankets that are
great for carrying outdoors.
This yummy s’more is perfect for
those fall sweet tooth cravings. Roast
a marshmallow, and in between two
graham crackers, add white or milk
chocolate, a teaspoon of pumpkin butter
or a sliver of pumpkin pie, and sprinkle
with pumpkin spice seasoning.
This to me is what fall truly is, and I
couldn’t think of a better season to
gather with good friends to create
some of the best memories you’ll ever
have. Be sure to post all of your fall
decor and recipe photos to Instagram
with #ASCFall, so other ASC members
can see all of your fall favorites for
entertaining and decor.
