Bonnie’s Best Tips – Bring the Holidays Home with Fresh Potpourri


Fill your rooms with the festive fragrance of cinnamon, citrus and pine


Each year when the calendar turns from “November” to “December,” things can get a little crazy. Suddenly Bing Crosby is singing on the radio, store shelves are crammed with toys and trees, and we can all feel squeezed by the pressure to instantly begin baking and shopping and wrapping and singing and festooning everything in sight with pine boughs and twenty yards of twinkle lights!

I love all the sights and sounds and beautiful decor of this season — but I’ve also learned that I don’t need to give in to that hurry-up spirit just to bring the holidays home. Sometimes it just takes a simple touch to give your home that warm, festive essence of the season. This fragrant homemade potpourri is just the thing!



I can’t wait to try this great homemade potpourri this holiday season! Not only does is look beautiful, but I’m sure it makes the entire house smell divine! Happy holidays!
