A few of my friends and I have started a little book club. This month’s selection is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and it has me completely enchanted 🙂 It’s been a long time since I’ve read something that sparks my creativity and pulls me into that dreamy state where candles shimmer in the soft darkness of my mind and a scent that I can’t quite identify floats on the air lulling me into peacefulness and comfort.
On Friday we will meet to discuss the book and I can not wait! My awesome in-laws gave me a fire pit for Christmas so the club is going to meet in my back yard around the fire while we drink lavender hot chocolate and eat cookies and chocolates! I’m going to decorate in the theme of Christmas lights, candles and black and white (the circus in the book is made up of only black and white).
Today one of my dear friends came over and we made little sachets filled with dried orange peels, cinnamon sticks, lavender buds and ground cloves to throw in the fire. I’m so excited to find out how the air will smell! Here are a few photos of our little project. I’ll give a proper review of the book and post pictures of our magical evening over the weekend! Have a wonderful week!
