Add a warm scent and soft glow to your home for Valentine's Day.


- 1 large glass or crystal bowl or vase with a broad opening

- 1 package of red, white, and pink potpourri

- 5 vanilla-scented votive candles


1. Empty the package of potpourri into the vase or bowl.

2. Arrange the votive candles on top of the potpourri in a circle around the edges of the vase or bowl. Nestling the candles into the potpourri a few centimeters will help ensure that they don't tip over.


3. Place the bowl or vase in the center of a table or on the fireplace mantle and light the candles. And voilá! Easy and romantic mood lighting!

Substitute vanilla-scented votives for another favorite scent like berry.
