Fall Decor Focuses on Metallics

Metallic Pumpkins

Metallic Pumpkins

Trending this fall are warm finishes with a metallic bent.  Metals such as copper and brass join silver and gold in both traditional and contemporary home décor.  In this post from Western Living Magazine you can see some beautiful examples of accessories and furniture which feature these rich looking metals.

Here at Esscents we feature gold and copper in many of our decorative soaps.  Examples include our seashell and heart soap collections in gold and copper, as well as our flower soaps in gold and white.  We also custom make soap collections, so feel free to contact us at esscents@comcast.net for a metallic soap set of your own!

Outdoor Wedding Venues in the Beautiful Pacific Northwest

Bride and Groom on the beach.Last weekend our local paper, The Seattle Times, published an informative article about non-traditional places to tie the knot around the Pacific Northwest. Titled Around the Northwest, Great Places to Say “I do”, this article is worth checking out if you are thinking of a destination wedding or dream about getting married somewhere outdoors.

If you are local and haven’t seen the article, be sure and take a look. There might be a few places you’ve never heard of!

Star Shaped Soaps Not Just for the Fourth of July!

Star Shaped Blue Glitter Soaps

Star Shaped Blue Glitter Soaps

First of all – Happy 4th of July!  We hope your day is full of sunshine, family, friends, good food and safe fireworks!

We thought this would be a perfect day to feature an order we are currently working on.  Last week we were asked to create 80 custom blue glitter star soaps for a baby boy’s baptism party.  We’ve been busy making these pretty layered soaps scented with our signature scent – Seattle Rain.

These soaps are three inches across and weigh about 2.5 ounces each and are made with clear glycerin and white goat’s milk soap.  Colored in a pretty light turquoise, they feature skin-safe glitter for a fun sparkle!

We’ve made these soaps in red, white and creme.  These blue stars got us thinking that we should make a set of pink stars.  Don’t you think they would be perfect for a baby shower or a girl’s birthday party?  Stay tuned!

White Star-Shaped Glitter Soap

We can’t wait to ship our blue glitter star soaps out next week.  We’re sure they will be a big hit!

Have a safe 4th of July.
