Top Candles & Faux Peonies for Spring

I’m just over here dreaming of spring.. The past few days have actually been surprisingly warm in these parts, so I’ve got all of my favorite spring scents burning. (Too soon?)

What you probably know about Peonies is this: They’re gorgeous and smell amazing- and if you didn’t know that, now you do.

But sadly, peony season does not last very long at all. One measly spring season, and then the start to summer marks the end of peony season.

So, I’ve scoped out the best candles and faux arrangements to fill your home with that lush scent and imagery all spring and summer long!

By far the best Peony Candle and the one I keep stocked both seasons👇🏼

// SHOP THE CANDLE // ONLY $12.99 // BURN TIME: 75 HOURS

Notes of Mango Blossom, Freesia, and White Peony will fill your house for over 75 hours with this one candle! If you know me, you know I’m always burning candles in my home and I’ve burned this one so much I’ve even practiced burning different candles with it to see what scents I can create!

Which brings me to my next candle must-have:

// SHOP THE SOHO CANDLE HERE //

Not only does the Jar remind me of my Meems’s vintage decor (she had these green hobnail glasses when I was growing up that I’m in love with) but the notes of apricot, passion fruit, and fresh grapefruit fill your house for up to 80 hours AND it’s only $12.99!

If you’re looking to add some faux Peonies to your home so you can enjoy the beautiful scent from your new candles and add some flowers into your space, I highly recommend any of the arrangements below from TJ MAXX!

Sophia’s Big Girl Room Makeover

77E6AAB5-F915-42A5-8A8B-EC0FDE6C3F91SHOP: COMFORTER SET // METALLIC HEARTS SHEETS // BED FRAME (similar style) // GEL/MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS (sooooo comfortable!) // MATTRESS PROTECTOR // SHELVING UNIT // STORAGE BINS (similar style)

We recently took a trip home to Florida for the Holidays to be with family. Up until then, Sophia had been sleeping in her large crib. Something inside of me couldn’t accept the fact that my little baby girl finally needed a big girl bed..

She ended up sleeping on a twin size bed at my Meems’s house (her vintage metal bed was what inspired me for Sophia’s bed frame) on the last night that we were there and she slept like a baby with no mishaps! (no falling out of the bed, etc!)

Jeff then convinced me that it was time to “cut the cord” and we needed to update her room.

The next few days were spent carefully buying pieces and mentally picturing what I wanted her room to look like and going off of that image in my head. This was the end result and were in love!

This comforter is even more gorgeous and elegant in person- just as we wanted! I believe your comforter set truly sets the vibe in your room. It’s also extremely soft and cozy! They have them in multiple different sizes and colors as well- there’s even a navy blue one that would go perfectly in a little boys room!

// SHOP THE BEDDING SET //

 

// SHOP THE SHEETS // (They’re on sale right now which is an added bonus!)

These sheets are so cute and match the Gold/Pink princess theme we were going for perfectly!

 // FIRST SIGN // SECOND SIGN // THIRD SIGN //

I actually purchased these signs a while ago so I’ve linked some really pretty alternatives that would go perfectly in a room like this!

Mamas that haven’t made the switch to the big girl room yet: I won’t lie to you, watching Jeff take apart her crib & put away her changing table killed me screw by screw, piece by piece.. Not even kidding! But then it was easy for me to get excited when I saw how happy Sophia was when she saw her big girl room and her very own big girl bed.

I’ve linked all of the products for you & you’ll find them right underneath the pictures above!

Have you made the switch yet? Let me know in the comments,
I’d love to hear what theme you went with!
