The Ultimate Candle Collaboration.
I fell in love with McQueen Pottery at Blackberry Farm while I was there last year hosting a trunk show. A bit later, I ran into Leanne McQueen in Franklin, TN at a craft market where I purchased two of her serving dishes, one in a beautiful creamy white. When it was time to design my first candle, I knew where to turn. I asked Leanne to use the same finish as my serving dish on the handmade vessels that she custom-makes for us at her studio in Maryville, Tennessee. Next, at her suggestion, I worked with Heather Ainsworth of Brentwood’s Southern Firefly Candle Company to create the earthy cardamom-scented candle that’s inside. Collaborating with two of my fellow female business owners to produce the Ceri Hoover candle made the process even more exciting than it already was.
I am thrilled to debut our creation just in time for the holidays.
