In just a few short weeks throngs of tourists will be flocking to Washington, DC to check out our beloved cherry blossoms. They are so pretty and fluffy that even the locals all make sure to get down to the National Mall to check them out at least once during their brief blooming period! Living in the area means that we also usually get a visit from an eager friend or family member. We have a lot of company in general but Cherry Blossom season is especially packed for us. This year we will be hosting a friend who is planning on running the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run. To make the guest room especially welcoming, I decided to add a few special touches and used one of Glade’s Limited Edition Spring Collection scents, Blooming Peony and Cherry (how perfect is that!), for my inspiration. We use a lot of Glade products around the house (hello two cats and two kids!) so it was fun to take the feeling and smell of the scent to the next level.
Blooming Peony and Cherry is a sweet and flirty scent that is perfect for a little pick me up. I was pleasantly surprised when my hubby walked past the room and did a double take, commenting that he really liked the scent. I rarely get feedback from him on those types of things (total guy!) so it must have really been a head turner! To welcome my friend, I decided to appeal to the healthy side of why she is here. I wanted her to be able to really relax and feel good going into her run and have a retreat to come back to after. On the dresser I included the Glade candle, along with a cherry organic drink and the Cherry Peanut Butter Power Bars I shared last week. Fresh tulips also add a nice pop of color. Ahhhh who doesn’t love tulips?!
On another table in the room, I pulled out a small book highlighting photos of the Cherry Blossoms and included the Glade wax warmer with the same Blooming Peony and Cherry scent. I figure she might need to come home to a good relaxing soak and then some down time (if Jake lets her have any, he loves barging in on company!). I’m not a runner so 10 miles sounds daunting to me!
I really love this city in Spring. It feels like we all awaken, and are happy and playful with one another. And of course love is in the air. I’ve had friends and seen strangers get proposed to next to those blooms. So I’m always so thrilled when we have company and I get to share it with friends and family. Dressing up the guest room in our home just adds to the fun!
Don’t forget to check out this and other Glade Limited Edition Spring Collection scents including Poppy Grove and Hello Spring! Which one gets you feeling ready for Spring?
