My Cozy and Stylish Holiday Hosting Essentials

This post is sponsored by on behalf of Trapp.

I am soooo excited that fall has officially arrived! Hosting and entertaining is so much more fun in cozy weather. I love everything, from the fall and winter décor to the sound of the crowd cheering on the TV during Sunday football to the pumpkin spice anything! Last year, we even hosted a meatball cook-off and voted on our favorites!

But, my absolute favorite thing about hosting during the colder months is lighting all the cozy candles! I want guests to feel at home the minute they cross the threshold, and with my new favorite candle (and candle brand), they will feel comfortable and cozy in an instant!

Trapp 7 oz Poured Candle in White Fir (soy-wax blend)

Have you ever bought a candle that smelled good when you sniffed it at the store but then fell flat once you lit it?! Super disappointment! Especially when you have people over!

Trapp uses the highest quality fragrances, and this really counts if you want a candle’s scent to fill a room! When I opened up my box of goodies, I smelled the cozy scent of white fir. It was undeniable, and I hadn’t even lit the candle yet!

As soon as I opened the candle box, I knew this was going to be a high-quality candle. From the scent of the cold candle to the presentation and packaging, I knew this was going to be awesome!

But did the candle stand up to the test once I lit it? A hundred percent yes!! Actually an infinite percent. My formal living room smelled like I had just decorated huge fresh-cut Christmas tree. The candle has notes of Frasier Fir (our go-to type of Christmas tree!), Balsam Wood, and Cool Ozonic notes. Trapp Fragrances definitely makes premium candles!!

And look how lovely it matches my home décor!

For me, fall entertaining is not complete until I light my favorite cozy candles. And actually, this candle cozies up a room before I even light it (which can be super helpful if I get distracted by another task before my friends and family arrive!) This Trapp candle is simply hard to ignore, and you need one or more in your home for the holidays!

Here are other room-filling Trapp fragrances to choose from:

  • White Fir
  • Orange Clove
  • Holiday
  • Golden Cypress
  • Fireside Pumpkin (I’m ordering this ASAP!)
  • Hearth
  • Lemon Sugar Cookie

Why choose Trapp Candles over other brands?

  • Trapp guarantees that their candles will fill a room with fragrance. Guaranteed!
  • The candle comes packaged in a festive box. Just wrap some ribbon around it and give it as a hostess gift, Christmas gift, etc. So simple!
  • The soy-wax blend yields a cleaner burn and burns for approximately 50 hours.
  • They are super high-quality candles!

    I love candles so much, and I appreciate that it’s in cute packaging. There’s nothing worse than a great smeller candle and then it has a weird package.

    So glad I’m not doing any hosting this holiday, but these do look like the nicest essentials. Candles always make a place look cozy and those fragrances sound wonderful.
