I didn’t put up a tree this year but I did do some tabletop decor, a wreath and garland. I also have lights around my tv stand and towers. There are so many ways you can still be festive without putting up a tree and this post will inspire you. First up, if you have a mantel, you can easily buy garland. The fresh smell of real greenery will give your home the holiday aromas.
Next you can still use your favorite ornaments just put them in clear vases, apothecary jars, bowls etc. Use shoe boxes to create presents and leave them around. Bonus points if the wrapping matches the color scheme…
I just think the mannequin was too cute and clever. .
Simple wreaths hung by ribbon can make just as much of a statement as one adorned with ornaments and less work…
Have you all sent out your holiday cards? I haven’t but I will soon.
Useless knowledge: I have never had a gingerbread cookie in my life before, that I remember.
Do you put presents under the tree through out the month of December or wait until Christmas Eve?
I have a confession. I dislike real trees. I prefer artificial xmas trees anyday. It’s not the maintenance that’s an issue, I prefer the fullness of branches that artificial trees have. Which do you prefer?
When I see this bakers rack, it really makes me want to spray paint mine gold. I currently use mine as a “bar cart”. All of my wine glasses, wine bottle holder, alcohol and decanters are on it against a black wall. I think ifnit were gold, it would bring new life to it.
What a cool idea for those that have kids. It will look especially nice on black appliances.
Some people don’t use their fireplaces so if you don’t you can always place the tv there. The tv goes unnoticed and is a good way to prevent the tv from being the focal point. In this case the tv is only placed in front but still works.
This isn’t a sponsored post it’s just TJ Maxx is a store I’ve loved since working there as a teen. I worked there a year in the service desk area doing returns my freshmen year of college. Once I started having clients, it has been one of my go-to stores for affordable, pretty, and unique decor items. You can buy a whole room filled with stuff from TJ Maxx and it won’t feel as if you shopped at one place and it won’t break your budget. What I love most is the fact that you can get sizeable mirrors for under $40. I’m talking mirrors big enough to swap out and replace over bathroom vanities like you see in this post. They have nice rugs, chic pet bowls & stuff, drapery, a lot of cool end tables and chairs. Another thing I love is the brand named faux fur throws and pillows and often times they are under $20 like the ones in my collage. I don’t know about you but my clients are not trying to spend $400 on two pillows. So if you’re in a budget, or simply want more bang for you buck without compromising style, head over to your nearest TJMaxx or online.
Hello. I hope you all are enjoying the aromas and good food in the comfort of your families and friends. Today I share some decorating that is a collaboration with Sparkle and Dine, a company that creates themed parties in a box. I used items I had on hand and added Sparkle and Dine’s faux croc table runner, mercury glass candle holders and napkin rings (which I used to hold votive candles)…
I wanted to create a glam centerpiece idea along the length of the runner. I added candleholders at different heights, layered different textures with a tall vase full of branches and feathers for drama.
I wanted a color scheme that had the bright orange you see in the fall but with muted tones like gray and black and a little sparkle with silvers….
Good morning. Ever wonder why some foods are marketed as breakfast when it’s so sweet and feels more like dessert?
