Cranberry Love



I love the look, the colour, the taste, and the smell of this Christmas fruit
[facts, tips and techniques listed here].

These berries [real or faux] look lovely floating in water with flowers or in vases with candles and provide a festive punch of colour to create a cheap-yet-stunning holiday centerpiece.



They also add the perfect tartness to a sweet champagne cocktail [recipe].



There's nothing better then the sweet smell of cranberry: a warm and welcoming scent for the holiday season. My favourite is the Body Shop's Cranberry which comes as a scented oil or candle and is perfect for holiday parties.

Vancouverites: you can enjoy the amenities of the Cranberry Spa on Robson Street. [Check out their Holiday Specials: a fabulous gift idea].

I actually really like the idea of the cranberries in the vases with candles for the store! A lot more festive than a tiny tealight :)

Courtney said...

So do I! They are such a pretty colour and look amazing with neutral coloured candles.

I can't wait to visit BP over the holidays (for real, for real).

Oh yes! You have to come and see the tree! We made all the decorations and hung them with clothes pins.

Courtney said...

Ooh that sounds awesome! I love the clothes pin idea!

i love a hint of clove, cinnamon and a bit of christmas tree!

Courtney said...

Ooh, Callie that sounds yummy.

I love cranberries as part of simple and elegant holiday decor, but as far as favorite holiday scents, I would have to say I am along the same lines as Callie-- cinnamon and spice with some pine- yum! And I can't forget peppermint-- I get rather obsessed with it in the month of December!

Courtney said...

I wake up with peppermint shampoo every morning. It's fresh and wonderful.

Fave holiday scent? Probably smoke from fireplaces... always reminds me of the winter!

Courtney said...

Ooh... I forgot about that one! The smokey smell and crackling sound of a fire is one of my favourites, too.
