Whether you get them from Bath & Body Works, Yankee Candle or an indie seller, seasonal candles, especially Halloween scents, can help create a spooky and fun atmosphere. The challenge today, of course, is narrowing down your candle source to find your favorites. Your local farmer's market, for example, likely has a lot of options to choose from, as do the aforementioned sources.
Novelly Yours is one of my favorite companies. Their candles are beautiful and inspired by various fandoms; I have a bunch of witchy ones, themed from everything from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to Hocus Pocus, to set the mood of Halloween in my office right now. A friend recently suggested Burke & Hare, which looks very interesting, as does 42 Nerdtastic Place. Some of these indie companies even provide candles that mirror the literary worlds we've all come to love, helping to bring them even more alive in our homes.
