Autumn Buffet & Goose Creek Candle Giveaway!

The days are getting shorter and thankfully—a little cooler as well!  This weekend I decide it was time to add a few autumn touches to my home, starting with my beloved buffet.

candle giveaway 002

The timing was perfect because I recently received a candle from Goose Creek Candle Company to try, and I chose the “Apples & Spice” scent.  Naturally we had to light it up immediately…and it made me long for fall even more!  In my home, we eschew apple pie in favor of homemade apple pizza (it’s divine)…and it smells just like it!  My children sniffed the kitchen hopefully, and were admittedly a little disappointed when they found that the aroma was coming from a candle and not dessert!

The pretty glass jar and deep red color fits in beautifully with my other fall decorations.

I love the fact that the jar is so understated, without a big clunky label.  It looks pretty lit or unlit!

I am highly sensitive to many perfumes, but I am happy to report that this scented candle did not bother my nose at all!

I think scented candles make great gifts.  It’s one of those things that I rarely buy for myself, but always enjoy having around. 

Goose Creek Candle Co. has generously offered to send a 16 oz. American Heirloom jar candle to one of my readers.  To enter, simply peruse their selection of scented candles and then leave a comment here telling me which scent you’d like to try!  Giveaway will close Friday, September 21.

Please leave an e-mail if you even think you MIGHT be a “no-reply” blogger!

In addition, you can use coupon code 1050 for 25% off your entire purchase from their site through September 30.  Christmas is coming!  Wouldn’t these make great neighbor gifts?

Very nice fall buffet. I love the tall candleholders and wooden bowl with gourds.

Kim said...

Your fall decorations are beautiful. I especially like your candle arrangement. Very pretty! I think I would love the Toasted Cinnamon candle, cinnamon is one of my favorites!

Sandra said...

I love your pumpkin display in the clear vase. In fact, I love your entire arrangement! After checking out their scents, I think Apple Cider would be one of my favorites. It would remind me of Gatlinburg, TN., a favorite vacation spot for my family!

Nikki said...

I would like to try the Sparkling Citrus candle, it sounds like it would smell just super fantastic. Thanks to you both for offering a candle to a reader--I have been newly enjoying your blog (after finding your directions for foil leaf furniture when "noodling & googling" a couple of weeks ago) and this giveaway makes it extra sweet to have found this treasure!

Gayle said...

YUM! Vanilla is always my go to scent for things that smell good, so I would have to choose their vanilla cashmere candle! I can't quite bring myself to start with the orange decorating yet, but it won't be long - your display is lovely!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Your buffet looks lovely, Korrie! I just won a Goosecreek Candle recently, so don't count me in the giveaway. I got a vanilla scented one for my bathroom.

Laura from Top This Top That said...

I love all the scents that remind me of fall- apple, vanilla.

Layn @ reignalayn.blogspot.com said...

Awesome giveaway. I love candles. I would love to try the toasted cinnamon or the spun sugar. They both sound really nice. Your buffett looks lovely as always.

Wanda @ Just Vintage said...

Everything's so pretty! I need some of those little pumpkins in the glass vase.

I'd love to try the Whipped Pumpkin candle.

I think I got my no-reply thing fixed, but my email is wanda@shopjustvintage.com
It was only happening on Blogger blogs that didn't have the option of name/url selected. Since I don't use Blogspot, I have to sign with my Google account and had no idea it was doing the no-reply thing. I have a love/hate relationship with Google. LOL

Pattie @ On Hollyhock Farm said...

I have never heard of these candles? I would love one of the Halloween ones but the page is gone. So I guess I would take the Spun Sugar. Thanks for the chance to win one. 8^)

Courtenay@Creek Line House said...

Hmm, well since I've been enjoying my mulled cider so much, I think I might enjoy a gingerbread crisp for after this one's all done. :) Love your little display as well! Great way to show off the candle.

suburban prep said...

The one that intrigues me is the Iced Dew Drop. It sounds so interesting.

Any fall scent is wonderful and I'll let you choose. I love pumpkin and spice and apple and cinnamin and all those yummy things!

Diane Higdon said...

I am so glad the days are cooling down too. You have been a busy girl getting all the wonderful decorations for fall out and placed so nicely. So ready for fall, and one of the candles in any of their fall fragrance would just add "icing to the cake". :)

I'd have to say the Apple and Spice one.

Your buffet looks so fall and lovely. Fall is my favorite season. I wish it lasted as long as summer/winter.

Sharyn Sowell said...

Looks very fall at your house! Perfect for early autumn. I am still hanging on to late summer, with blackberry pies in the oven.

The candles look fantastic. The dark vanilla bean sounds warm and soothing and very welcoming! I'd love that scent best. What beautiful candles- I haven't heard of them before.

Bonnie Schulte said...

Fall is my very favorite time of the year, and I think the Autumn scent would be perfect. Love the idea that these candles do not burn "black"

Since it's that time of the year, I'd probably have to pick one of their Halloween candles. Then I need to find a sideboard to put it on.
