I am pooped. Completely exhausted. I gave a dinner party for friends who haven’t been over for dinner in a few years, and I was surprised at how much work it was! Here’s the table setting (without the pretty pink wine glasses unfortunately.)
Our dinner went on until about midnight.
I must be getting old or maybe it was the three glasses of wine. As a result, today’s post is going to be a short one.
My friend Sybille surprised me with a lovely hostess gift. She shouldn’t have, but I love it and I’m so happy to have it! Capri Blue Muse scented candle in a beautiful retro cut glass jar. The fragrance is Modern Mint.
I am particularly in love with the cut glass jar that the candle comes in. Many years ago, my grandmother had a cut glass powder jar on her vanity, and I always admired it. When I use up the candle, I’ll be able to fill the jar with powder or with trinkets and keep it on my vanity.
Have you ever heard of Capri Blue? I was not familiar with this scented products brand. Capri Blue has 13 signature scents that all sound enticing: Modern Mint, Volcano, Blue Jean, Aloha Orchid, Cactus Flower, Paris, Pomegranate Citrus, Rain, just to name a few. They are hand-poured in Mississippi according to eco-friendly practices.
Although luxury scented candles in a variety of attractive containers in different sizes and style collections seem to be Capri Blue’s claim to fame, they also have travel candles, reed diffusers and room spray. In addition, they make a couple of beauty products: hand cream in two sizes and bar soap.
If you like to have hostess gifts or other small gifts on hand in case an occasion comes up, check out Capri Blue’s website for some great gift ideas. Prices range from $12-66. Modern Mint from the Muse collection was priced at $36 for 11 oz., a very generous candle.
