I just boxed up the last of the Halloween decor and now I am thinking about ideas for our Thanksgiving table decor. We host Thanksgiving each year, and I think last year’s decor might have been my favorite: I loved the hanging centerpiece and the white, beribboned pumpkins with just a touch of bling. A […]
I’ve been changing out some of my lampshades. There are a couple that I really like but are too small for the space. Don’t laugh at me, but I didn’t want to put them away yet, so I used them in a floral arrangement. I love the chunky rusticity of them, and the shape kind […]
Last week I shared a tablescape for an early Easter Brunch. I realized there was something missing… Place cards. I quickly whipped up a couple of fun DIY chalkboard eggs “place cards” using plastic eggs and chalkboard paint. I know it’s only a few days until Easter, but this is super fast and easy […]
Yesterday I showed you a tablescape that would be nice for a little Easter Brunch, especially since Easter is coming so early this year. I wanted it to feel a bit like springtime is just beginning to warm things up in the woods… which was perfect, since the big tree in our front yard was […]
Is it just me, or is Easter coming super early this year…? I feel like I will have just laundered my green “Kiss Me, I’m Irish” T-shirt and suddenly I will be needing to fill Easter baskets. In thinking about Easter Brunch, I was wondering how I was going to make it happen since I […]
Epsom salt… Isn’t that what people soak sore feet in? I wouldn’t know. I only use it for crafts and decorating. Epsom salt is a fabulous, frosty looking salt crystal. You can pick it up at any drug store or grocery store in the health/pharmacy section. I use it a lot during the winter. It looks […]
I love, love, LOVE this time of year! I love the excitement and the anticipation of the season. One of the things I look forward to the most is Christmas Eve, which we host at our home. During the hustle and bustle of the season it is easy to get overwhelmed and stressed when entertaining, […]
Yesterday I did a wrap up of our Thanksgiving dinner and decor, but I wanted to share how I put together the hanging centerpiece before I move on to all things Christmas. There are no rules here. I mixed yard clippings with rhinestones and mercury glass with mason jars… it all worked together. I explained […]
Nothing makes me happier than having friends and family around during the holidays. The more, the merrier! (And I love, love, love how my Thanksgiving table turned out.!) Painted pumpkins, greenery from the yard and candles made it gorgeous.
Even though stores are ready for Christmas in July, I can’t bring myself to put up a single decoration before December 1st. This easy centerpiece helps me transition from fall to winter.
