I am so excited for this new series- Let’s Stay Home. You all know I am obsessed with Interior Design, I love how it can help your home feel beautiful. But there is so much more that goes into creating a space then what you visually see. When you think about your home on Christmas is it only the presents and decorations that you think of? Or do you think about the coziness of heavy warm blankets, the smell of hot chocolate, or cinnamon rolls. It’s the smell of cinnamon rolls in the oven that makes me think about Christmas morning. Because for my family EVERY Christmas morning we had cinnamon rolls.
Do you see where I am going with all of this? I want your home to be something more than something that is beautiful, because it is a place where memories are made. If we want to talk logistics, in design it is smart to try and evoke every single one of the 5 senses in every room. Did you know that? It’s part of how you can get people to feel comfortable, to relate, to feel at home.
Today I am sharing one of my favorite stove top potpourri recipes. It is the perfect way that you can add that perfect scent to your home for your holiday parties. But, believe me it’s so good you will want to do it all winter long. It only takes a few minutes and you really can throw just what you have at home in. No need to do this recipe exactly.
Holiday Stove Top Potpourri:
5 Cups of Water
2 Navel Orange Peels
1 Large Apple cut in half or quartered
1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 Tsp Ground Coriander
4-5 Cinnamon Sticks
1 tsp worth of cut ginger root
Large Handful of Cranberries
Place all items in pot and place on boil, after 20-30 minutes turn heat down to low and keep on low. Make sure to check the water and add more as needs be.
