4 Ways to Refresh Your Home for Spring using Candles: Celebrating National Fragrance Day with Bridgewater Candle Company

This post is sponsored by Bridgewater Candle Co. As always, all thoughts and opinions are solely my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that support me!

Happy National Fragrance Day!! It's so fitting that this day falls on the first full day of spring! This holiday is so fun because I'm always lighting candles, trying new room sprays and even wax melts and wall plug-ins throughout my home. I LOVE nothing more than a fresh, clean smelling room/home and candles and fresh scents have always been the way to go for me! I'm celebrating this National Fragrance Day with Bridgewater Candle Company; one of the best candle companies out there! They have high quality products and some of the prettiest and freshest scents I've ever smelled. This spring, I'm using candles and fresh fragrances to refresh my home and with Bridgewater's candles, it's easier than ever to double your fresh scents as decor pieces! Here's my favorite ways to use candles to refresh any room or home this season:

I've been using Bridgewater candles for a long time now - and in fact, they're the brand that got me into always having candles lit throughout my home! I remember when my mom first let me keep a lighter in my room so that I could light my candles when I came home from school or in the evening - #babyAdriana - LOL. But for real, I'm always trying new scents and Bridgewater has the best selection out there.


My favorite scent from Bridgewater Candle Co. is the Open Road Mingle Tin Candle. It's so fresh and clean and it definitely doesn't hurt that its jar is SO pretty! This is my most lit Bridgewater candle and it smells like I have a fresh bouquet of flowers in my bedroom at all times.

There's no better time to give your home a sweet little refresh than with candles! Here are my 4 favorite ways to give any room a quick refresher this spring:

1. Stack candles on decorative books. I use coffee table books for everything - decor, reading, even make-shift shelving. I have more candles than I can count or store away, so I always display candles atop of my decorative books and even magazines! It makes for pretty and easy decor, and you can reach for your candle(s) easily when they're displayed. Another reason I LOVE Bridgewater's candles is because the tops of the jar candles serve as a holder for the actual candle, so I can even light candles atop of a book without worrying about anything overheating.


2. In or on organizational pieces. This fun acrylic organizer is the perfect piece to organize all of your lose ends and things that don't have a place while still looking pretty! Mine is from Home Goods; they always have the prettiest acrylic pieces. It has drawers and I use it for my current favorite nail polishes, travel beauty products that I throw in my purse/carry-on bag, sunglasses that I don't have a case for and on the top shelf, pretty little things that I like to have on display! I change it up often, but right now it holds my favorite Pandora ring and my favorite Bridgewater Candle.



It fits perfectly on my acrylic organizer and I love the way it looks! I also display candles on my coffee table, end table and on my desk in an odds-and-ends holder.


3. Group candles together on display. I use decorative candle holders and fun trays and shelves to display candles and it looks SO pretty! These small and large jar candles are in the scent Aloha Summer and not only do they smell amazing, but they're a gorgeous color that stands out and the BEST part - these small/large jar candles (plus the Mingle Tin Candles I raved about in my above point!) are participating candles that help to feed children in orphanages.



Bridgewater partnered with the Feed a Child program and Rice Bowls to help raise awareness for the global orphan crisis and brought light to the situation. If buying candles (that you'd likely buy anyway) for a good cause doesn't make you want to shop and get your home ready for spring, I don't know what will!


4. Use candles in your bathroom to keep it fresh. I always have candles in my bathroom and in the guest bathroom - and always keep one lit when I have friends over! It makes the room smell fresh and they make for really fun and beautiful decor, too. ;) I almost always have a candle lit in my bathroom and this Large Jar Bridewater candle is one of my favorites to light this time of year in the bathroom!

  1. I love having candles in the bathroom. I have a shelf that sits high on a side wall next to our closet door and I always have at least one large jar candle there. I only light it when I'm bathing though. I also have a reed diffuser in the bathroom to keep it smelling nice 24/7.

  31. We should prepare our home for every season in advance, especially in spring we need to do some kind of minor changes with our home. So that we can feel fresh during spring, home decoration ideas are quite amazing and we hire an interior designer to take very good care of our home interior parts in every season. But instead of hiring and investing a huge money in an interior designer, we should learn some basic things from different sources like this article, from which we can get quick home decoration tips.
