Growing up in the north with four seasons, I’ve sometimes dreaded it. Warm summers and fall were great but we didn’t care for the winter at all. As an adult, I must admit I’m missing the cold weather, especially the snow around Christmas. As one of the Better Homes & Gardens Stylemaker for 2019-2020, I get to share some of my favorite products with you each month. This month, I’ve partnered with Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart to share scents and colors that reminds me of living up north. You will see how I’ve incorporated both into my holiday décor.
Inspiration is everywhere, for me it’s things in my life past and/or present. Everytime it was going to snow, I always knew. The sky was a soft blue, and the air smelled so fresh, clean, & crisp. When, I came across this candle warmer, I was instantly inspired to add a little of the past into our home.
Winter Wonderland is my theme for this Chistmas season. The colors blue, teal, white, and cream reminds me of the cold winters up north.
Adding pops of teal and acrylic Christmas decor along with this Better Homes & Gardens Full Size Wax Warmer, make it seems like it was done purposely, its perfect! On my YouTube channel you can see how, I’ve given our Christmas tree this Winter Wonderland look right HERE!
Electric light, yes please! No worries, about having residue or soot. This Hobnail warmer not only has a soft glow when plugged in, it safely melts scented wax releasing the smell of goodness to fill the entire room.
Melt your choice of wax, (wax sold separately) my current fave that I’m burning in our family room is Woodland Frost. If, you love the smell of fresh pears, you will love this scent all year round.
Nightlights are used in all of our bathrooms, to ensure safety in the middle of the night. The Better Homes & Gardens Wall Accent Wax Warmer Hobnail is not only stylish with the gold rim, and hobnail detail but it also has a built in wax warmer.
Stormy Autumn Night Wax Melts, has a rustic sweet & fresh smell that reminds me of sitting by the window with a cup of cocoa watching the snowy blizzards.
We love keeping a scented wall warmer night light in our kitchen. The hubster is an early riser so having the light helps with navigating his way to the coffee station in the early morning. This Better Homes & Gardens Sparkle and Shine wall warmer is one of my favorite quotes. The Cranberry Mandrin Splash reminds me of smells like fresh picked berries. You can noticeablity smell the fragrance as soon as you enter the kitchen.
White dishes are plain but almost anything you put on it will make it look 100% better. This Better Homes & Gardens Porcelain Rectangle Handled Serve Platter is the way to go if your in need of a good quality platter. It’s used for servimg meals, I’m using it as a tray for my coffee station.
This Better Homes & Gardens White Porcelain Cream and Sugar Set, I couldn’t pass it up for not only the price but the quality. This 5 piece set with both a creamer and a sugar dish is bigger than what I expected when I got it home. The base is wood and it come with a cute little porcelain spoon for the sugar. This set goes perfect with my white dish collection.
This is my favorite little corner in our kitchen that I love to play and switch things out all the time. Are you like that too? You can go wrong with white serveware but, I totally got my money’s worth with the Better Homes & Gardens Porcelain Chip Dip Cake Stand Serve. Yes, if you flip it over it serves as a bowl and platter built right in Genius!

Our son came home from work the other day and he swore I baked a cake for him. Silly boy… ”not today”! He could’t believe it was this Better Homes & Gardens Jar Candle, Caramel Bread Pudding. This candle definitely reminds me of home. One smell of the candle reminded me of my sweet late grandma, she made the best cakes ever.
If your looking for a cushioned non-skid latex reverse thats pretty, very affordable this kitchen rug is it. Since our family room is right off the kitchen, I thought it would be nice to carry some of the teal color into the kitchen. Its a nice addition to have something soft under your feet while making your morning coffee.
Kitchen towels is a nice, and inexpensive way to add the pop of color you need to bring your look to full circle. These Better Homes & Gardens, 4 Pack, Fringe Kitchen Towel Set, Aqua Ocean and Metal Night matches my rug pefectly.
Every year, we love to throw a Christmas breakfast or brunch for our family & friends. Our kitchen island is always decorated with beautiful Christmas decor. If you like to see the entire YouTube video, you can click right here. This Better Homes & Gardens Medium Glass Tree looks amazing on our island. There’s so many things that you can add to it because there’s an opening on the bottom. I’ve added two, one at both ends of the island. You can add candy, wrapped snacks, and it will be an awesome gift for someone. I’ve added battery operated twinkle lights inside of mine.
Carrying on my Winter Wonderland theme over to our master bedroom. This cozy corner was created for the ”Hubster”! He’s been such a great sport with putting up with me, and my never ending DIY’s. Since red is his favorite color, I decided to deck this tree out with red. You can see the entire set-up over on my YouTube channel right HERE!
This Better Homes & Gardens Sherpa Throw Blanket, Green Plaid is uber soft and comfy, and it comes in other festive colors. This blanket makes the perfect Christmas gift. It’s 50” x 60” perfect size because the hubster stands 6’1.
There’s nothing like having style & function with the Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Tree Farm Full Size Wax Warmer. It’s so adorable (sigh)! The base is ceramic with the words “Christmas Tree Farm” and “Cut Your Own” reminds me of when, I was a youngster. My Dad would go to our local farm, and cut down our Christmas Tree.
My Hubster also loves Cinnamon gum! Better Homes & Gardens has Spicy Cinnamon Stick Scented Wax Melts, who knew?! Yup, our bedroom smelled like a heartwarming nostalgic aroma of ground cinnamon, topped with a big hug.
