  • Scented Gift Tags & Place Cards

    As the holidays draw near, it’s time to start planning for festivities that you may host in your home! Creating the perfect ambiance and setting for your guests is just as important as what will be on the menu. I love using seasonal and outdoor elements in tablescapes and place settings to help bring holiday cheer, and one of the easiest ways to do this is by running fragrant herbs through name tags to create special scented place cards!
