A few months ago, one of our brilliant design managers, John Warfel, was sporting a retro baby blue leisure suit straight out of the 70’s. Oddly enough when I saw him my first thought wasn’t “What are you wearing?!” it was, “Wow! With the right flower you would look like a walking, talking Baby’s Breath Warmer!” From that experience Scentsy Fashion Week was born: an entire week dedicated to wearing clothing inspired by our favorite Scentsy Warmers. Each day this week, we will post photos of Scentsy employees wearing their best interpretation of Scentsy Warmers. Want to join in on the fun? Send me photos of your warmer-inspired fashion to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could be featured during Scentsy Fashion week, too!
Enjoy the show!

squeal Fright Night MY FAVORITE warmer! awesome job everyone.
This made my day! The baby blue leisure suit is my favorite!
"Dotty" and "Pop!" are so cute!! And is that a wall of Starbuck's cups in the first pic?? Holy moly!
Too funny! Can't wait to see more!!
this is cool, i like it alot, just wondering if the sunflower warmer is still available?
Hi Rindy, unfortunately it's not available. That warm is actually around 4 years old! If you're looking for something sunflower-esque you might try the Flore or Sol Warmers, they're both very summery and cute!
you can always ask around and someone may have the sunflower warmer that they are willing to trade you for something else.
I too want the sunflower warmer...its my favorite post...well maybe Dotty too.
How fun! Great pix. What a great idea for guest at an Open House. May just try this in May. Love Scentsy
That is an awesome idea for an open house.
My favorite picture is the one with the Lili wrap from the Silhouette Collection! Nicely done :)
I can always ask someone in my group if they might know of someone who has it and would be willing to give it up.
Love them all, however, Dotty is my Favorite!
Are there more pictures?? and has the winner been announced?
These were FUN! I can't wait to see more.....what a crazy cool idea!
Loved the pics! I hope there are more to come... :-)
I think that is a great idea, I loved all of the inspirations. Maybe we should do a Bring Back My Warmer like what we do with the scents. Just saying :)
Where's my picture???
Love it.. very creative

Thanksgiving has officially kicked off the holiday season in the United States. I personally cannot wait for all the delicious treats, family time and gifts the upcoming holidays bring.
With Scentsy’s recent expansion to Australia, Mexico, and Poland, we thought it would be fun to share how the holidays are celebrated in other countries.
Australian Christmas traditions are very similar to those of the United Kingdom or North America. Adelaide kicks off the season in early November with the Adelaide Christmas Pageant. It is a parade of floats, bands, dancing groups, clowns and walking performers, followed by the arrival of Santa Claus. With over 400,000 people watching, it is the largest parade of its kind in the world.
December marks the height of summer for Australia. With summer break starting the week before Christmas, many people take time off from work to travel. Unlike in North America, Christmas is an outdoors-y, summer-y event, with BBQs and people taking a dip in the pool for relief from the heat.
In Poland, Advent starts on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and during those weeks leading up to the December 25, people bake traditional Christmas treats (like gingerbread) and make Christmas decorations. On December 6th, St. Nicholas Day is celebrated where he brings small presents for the kids.
A unique tradition is the sharing of a thin wafer, which has a holy picture pressed into it. Everyone around the table breaks a piece off and eats it, which symbolizes their unity with Christ. This tradition is followed by a Christmas Eve supper. The supper includes several traditional dishes and dessert, but instead of red meat, fish is served. After supper gifts are exchanged and the day ends with the Midnight Mass at a local church. In Poland, the holiday season is all about visiting with family and friends, making Christmas decorations and preparing special meals and treats.
In Mexico, Christmas is a mixture of traditions from the pre-Hispanic and colonial periods, as well as Spanish, German and American Christmas traditions. The Christmas season starts with a novena, which lasts nine days and is held in honor of Mexico’s patron Saint, the Virgin of Guadalupe, on December 3 and runs through Epiphany on January 6.
The nativity scene is the most important Christmas decoration and it can be found in churches, homes and businesses. However, Mexican nativity scenes include several unique figures like Mexican animals and plants, and the Baby Jesus figure usually isn’t added to the scene until Christmas Eve. Between December 16 and December 24 the so-called Posadas are held, a series of processions and parties, including the breaking of a star-shaped piñata. Later on Christmas Eve, there is a late-night mass and it is followed by a traditional midnight feast.
While this is only a brief summary of the most striking differences and similarities, we’d love to hear about your personal favorite Christmas traditions in the comments below!

Whether it’s just a simple candy cane or a Girl Scout Thin Mint (or the whole box you wolfed down before your husband got home so you didn’t have to share), the mere taste of peppermint can bring you right back to the most wonderful time of the year.
Each day this week on the Velata Facebook page, we’re featuring a different peppermint Christmas treat created with a Velata Peppermint Mixable and Velata Premium Belgian Chocolate. But because you are our lovely, devoted blog readers, you get to see them all at once!
Try one, or try them all! All of them don’t require much more than a microwave, so get ready to enjoy sweet and simple, pure peppermint bliss.
You will need:
· 1 bag of Velata Caramel Milk Chocolate
· 2% or whole milk
· 1-2 Velata Peppermint Mixables
· Candy canes for stir stick (optional)
Nothing gets me in the Christmas spirit like cranking up Frank Sinatra or Bing Crosby Christmas carols, turning on the tree lights and sitting by the fire with a mug of hot cocoa in hand. This particular twist on regular cocoa is really going to take it up a notch for me this year, and I hope it does for you as well!
Melt the bag of Velata chocolate according to package instructions. Heat milk in microwave or stove and pour into mugs. Stir the Mixable and chocolate into the milk until it’s reached the level of your chocolaty satisfaction.
Use a candy cane as a stir stick for optimal mintiness and let Frank croon the night away.
· Wax paper
· Velata Milk or Dark Chocolate
· Velata White Chocolate
· 1 Velata Peppermint Mixable
· Christmas cookie cutters
· Crushed candy canes
Melt Velata Milk or Dark Chocolate according to package instructions and pour into the cookie cutters.
Gently sprinkle a small amount of Peppermint Mixable over the chocolate layer. Set in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
Melt Velata White Chocolate according to package instructions. Take the cookie sheet out of the freezer and pour the white chocolate over the darker chocolate layer. Top with crushed candy canes and set back in freezer for another 10-15 minutes.
Gently pop them out of the cookie cutter and enjoy!
Full disclosure: I used quite big cookie cutters and probably didn’t need to use so much chocolate. Small cookie cutters and just a thin layer of chocolate are good!
· 4 bags of microwavable popcorn (which is about 10 quarts for you fancy people with popcorn machines)
· 1 bag of Velata Milk Chocolate
· 2 Velata Peppermint Mixables
· ½ bag of Mini-Marshmallows
· 2 cups sugar
· ½ cup light corn syrup
· 1 cup water
· Crushed candy canes or sprinkles
This is a much simpler way to eat and enjoy popcorn balls for your party! Just as delicious, about half as messy.
Pop popcorn and put in large bowl (like the biggest bowl you have. I ended up using a turkey-roasting pan).
Mix sugar, Velata Peppermint Mixable and corn syrup over medium-high heat in a heavy saucepan. Add water. Melt Velata chocolate according to package instructions and pour into the mixture. Add marshmallows. Keep stirring over medium-heat until mixture comes to a boil.
Pour the mixture over the popcorn and toss until evenly coated. Add in sprinkles or crushed candy canes (or heck, both!). Let set for a couple hours until it dries a little bit, and then pile into a serving bowl.
You will need:
· Cake pop sticks
· Red decorating gel
· Festive ribbon for decoration
Santa will be PSYCHED for the curveball in the cookie department this year with these Velata White Chocolate-covered Oreos.
Melt your Velata White Chocolate according to package instructions and pour into your Velata Warmer.
Insert a stick into a cookie and dip into the chocolate, spooning chocolate over top until you get full-coverage and it’s smooth, letting excess drip off.
Place the pop on a wax-covered cookie sheet and repeat.
Put the cookie sheet in the freezer until hard (probably a half hour or so). Tie the little ribbons on, decorate with the red gel and set out for Santa!
Minty Muddy Buddies
· 1 box Corn Chex®
· 1 bag of Velata Chocolate
· ½ cup peanut butter
· ¼ cup butter or margarine
· 1 teaspoon vanilla
· 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
Melt Velata chocolate according to package instructions. Mix peanut butter, Velata Peppermint Mixables and butter in a bowl and microwave for about one minute until smooth. Stir in chocolate and vanilla extract.
Put the cereal in a large bowl and pour the mixture over top, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into a two-gallon resealable plastic bag.
Add the powdered sugar to the bag. Seal it and shake until well coated. Spread on wax paper to cool for a while. Store in fridge when not wolfing it down.
Once again, I’d like to thank my dog Darla, the Cocker-Dach, for her effort on this blog post. While she may not look happy in this picture, deep down, I know she is really starting to feel the Christmas Spirit.
