Pumpkin Spice Stovetop Potpourri

I couldn’t finish out welcoming fall without making up something with pumpkin spice. It just screams Hello Fall!! One thing my mother used to make all the time growing up was a stovetop potpourri for every season. I put my own spin on a recipe and added some pumpkin spice and a little pumpkin purée. Here is what you’ll need to have your house smelling like you’ve been baking all day!!

I made up a few extra batches and filled up some Mason jars, added a cute tag found on Pinterest and they make a great neighbor or teacher gift! Happy Fall ya’ll!

Pumpkin Spice Stovetop Potpourri


  • 1 3/4 cup Apple juice or cider
  • 4 Cinnamon sticks
  • 2 tbsp Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup Pumpkin Purée
  • Half an apple cut into slices
  • Pot


  1. Dump all your ingredients into your pot and give it a good stir.
  2. Place on the stove and bring to a boil then reduce heat to low.
  3. Continue to let simmer stirring occasionally. As the liquid continues to evaporate add more apple cider to the mixture and continue to stir.



About Jamie

Hi! My name is Jamie with Five Whimsy Lane and I like to make things pretty. Parties especially. Glitter enthusiast...lover of all things chocolate & a partynista. Is that a word? Wifey to one fabulous husband and mother to 3 amazing children, Caleb, Leilani & Olivia who are my main inspiration. What more could a girl ask for? When I'm not scouring Pinterest for hours (I'm working honey, I promise) you can find me digging in my fairy garden, dancing with the kids or cleaning my Dyson. Who wants a dirty vacuum? My love for parties began over 10 years ago when I was planning my sons 1st birthday. I realized I had a huge passion for details (some might call it an obsession). After many years and wonderful birthday memories later Sweet Jelly Parties was born. Children's events and baby showers are our specialty but I'm a lover of all reasons to celebrate. Anniversaries, holidays, graduations, it's a Friday so let's throw a party.....You name it, I'll glitter it. Every once in a while though I like to trade in my juice box for a glass of wine which is why I'm also a Certified Wedding Planner.
