Without a real tree in the home, we don't have that yummy pine-scent throughout the house. Luckily, we live in the age of scented candles!
This week I bought two holiday-scented candles but made sure to get a more subtle fragrance. Pine seemed safe enough. With the potluck on Saturday, it would probably be best to avoid any strong scents that might mix with the delicious smells of food (even if one person is bring Taco Bell).
The pine might have been too subtle though; I barely noticed the scent while I was in the room. I might make another purchase for something a little more like cinnamon.
