Fall is most definitely in full swing here at the House of Valentina. Our evening walks have the added melody of crunching leaves underfoot while our foraged branches for our vases have turned to the magnificent shades of Amber, Ruby, and Citrine… it’s like a jewelry box with the finest jewels in the world all being presented to us at once! It’s truly extraordinary!
We’ve had the fire going every day and I’ve realized that I have an unexpected obsession with wearing cozy sweaters and pleated trousers- the perfect blend of comfort and sophistication! I’ve also discovered a new candle obsession while prepping our bedroom for the holidays (make sure to tune in to Sunday’s video this week! It’s going to be extraordinary!).
Nordic Woods. That’s the name of the candle and it is so befitting! With soothing notes of eucalyptus, rich amber, and warm birchwood, it is both woodsy and calming yet somehow striking and noteworthy. I’m IN LOVE!
For the weekend ahead, we’ve got big plans! I’ve ordered the last few bits to prep our holiday exterior extravaganza! You guys know after last year with the snow machine… there’s no telling what Jack has up his sleeve, but for me, I’m excited to bring out the Rattan reindeer and wreaths and create a classic yet elegant festive feeling.
And then, of course, it’s back to prepping for Thanksgiving! So, whether you are traveling over the next few days or staying at home, we wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving. We hope it is a time to reconnect with your loved ones, full of laughter and yummy food! xxV
