So, am I the only one who cannot believe it is November already?! While I love October, I am so excited for the next couple of months and all of the goodness that comes with them… mainly, holidays! That is why I’ve teamed up with my fellow holiday-lovin’ blogger friends to provide a little Thanksgiving table inspiration for y’all today. Grab a cup of your favorite holiday drink and settle on down for a little tour of my simple and neutral Thanksgiving table!
Today is all about the rest of our living room. This is where we spend the majority of our time, so I wanted it to be fun without being overwhelming or competing with our fireplace. As I said in my first post, “less is more” was the key to keeping things themed and not cheesy. I also stuck to the same neutral color palette with pops of black and orange that I used in the other areas.
If you know me well, you know I love Harry Potter. So when it came to decorating our home for Halloween, I knew a Harry Potter theme was the way to go!
I went the lazy girl route and focused on a few areas of our house, mainly repurposing and reusing things we already had on hand. I also wanted it to still be Halloween-y and not over the top cheesy so less was really more. First up is our fireplace and builtin bookshelves.
Hey, y’all! Today, I am so excited to be teaming up with more awesome ladies to bring you some Fall inspiration for your home. We are focusing on Fall tables today, which is one of my favorite things to decorate in our house. Be sure to check out the other 9 bloggers’ tablescape posts which are linked at the end of my post!
While I love the neutral Fall decor trend as much as the next girl, something about rich warm colors, lots of layered textures and natural element just scream “Autumn” too me. These were the things that I focused on while creating my own Fall tablescape.
Its no secret that I love old things.
I have wanted a vintage typewriter for several years now. I’ve found a few here and there at antique stores, but none were a price I was willing to pay. Fast forward to earlier this month when I snagged this beauty in its original case for $12. TWELVE DOLLARS PEOPLE! I was freaking out a little bit.
A few weeks ago I found a
struggling plain wreath base at Goodwill for $2. I didn’t have a specific plan for it, but at that price, I couldn’t pass it up. Fast forward to last weekend when I got the itch for a new Fall wreath in our dining room and snagged some Fall greenery at JoAnn’s on major sale. While I love it for the season we are going into, I think it will transition well into Spring and Summer. Major win, especially since the whole thing cost me $11 total!
Hello lovely friends! I’m here today to share the tablescape I came up with to transition our dining room from Summer to Fall. I often find that decorating during the transitional periods between seasons is the most challenging. Do I go with summer-y things? Is it too early for pumpkins? I think I’ve found a nice middle ground to honor the last few days of Summer and slowly greet the cool crispness of Fall.
Try saying that 10 times fast!
I know there are tons of Pottery Barn pillow knockoffs out there, but I just couldn’t help but create one myself! I love to paint. Its such a therapeutic outlet for me, but with a small toddler in the house, I don’t get to do it very much.
I decided to try my hand at painting a pillow, though, after I saw some plain linen pillow covers at Hobby Lobby. They were $4.99 originally, but were half off the week I went so I picked up a couple. I was really craving a few more Fall touches for our house and thought a nice little pumpkin pillow would do the trick!
