This holiday season focus on the important things: loved ones, warm drinks and coziness. There’s nothing better than curling up with a warm blanket and getting extra cozy, especially during the holidays. We aren’t shy about our feelings when it comes to being cozy, we love it! But why not bring that idea to your home decor?
It should be easy when it’s cold and Christmas time is here. It’s an easy process of elimination and addition to get your home ready for maximum holiday cheer and cozy comfort. All you have to do is ask yourself these very simple questions.
Question 1: Does it keep me warm? If the answer is yes, then we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get warm in it. If the answer is no, then we get rid of it. Simple as that. Pack it up and bring it back out once it gets warm again.
Question 2: Can it be used as holiday decor? If the answer is yes, then we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get cozy with it! If the answer is no, we do it anyway! Okay, maybe not because there’s only so much space for holiday decorations, but you get the idea. If it isn’t serving a festive role then time to pack it up until the holidays are over.
That’s all it takes. It really can be that simple. Little effort, maximum result! Get your home more cozy and more Christmas-y with those two simple questions. Stay warm and don’t forget to have fun!
This Thanksgiving try using natural and organic elements to decorate the home. Fall foliage is a great way to provide a fun, festive look! And if you still have a few pumpkins left over from Halloween that weren’t carved they just became Thanksgiving decor.
Use those beautiful fall leaves and flowers to bring those fall tones and style into your home. Look into small gourds and pumpkins to use as table decor or as small decor pieces in the living room. Bringing in a few natural fall pieces to mix into your existing decor can give the appearance of a well decorated and festive home.
If you’re looking for a little design inspiration then we’ve got you. Check out how these spaces have been decorated for the fall! Get inspired and get creative!
Preparing for the holidays is half the battle. So this week we have a post that will help get you prepared for any hosting of friends and family you might be doing during holidays. Let us help you take some of the stress off your plate because we’re focusing on table decor. Let’s get your table ready for the holidays! We’ve got 3 tips to help you and your table make it through these holidays. Ready? Let’s go!
1. Stack & Layer
Let’s give your table depth. We can accomplish this with table clothes, runners, place mats, and stacked dishes. Layering your table linen will instantly give your table depth and if you want to play with colors it can even add contrast or fun pops of color. Don’t limit yourself by placing each and every dish, utensil or napkin on its own. Stack them up under napkins or other dishes to add dimension to the table.
2. Simplify The Centerpiece
We love gorgeous and stunning centerpieces, but they can be large and take up valuable table space. This year remove the stress and save your time for what’s important. Go with a simple yet elegant centerpiece design. Depending on your table size, you may be able to leave your stunningly simple centerpiece out for the actual dinner. Another option is to create a centerpiece design with quick and easy to remove pieces. No extra time spent removing every piece one at a time. This will make clearing space easy and no one will be left out of the conversation during dinner.
3. Prepare For The Mess.
Holidays are messy – plain and simple. So lets be prepared for them. Mentally preparing for that stain that’s going to happen on your new or favorite table runner is probably going to help you cope with it a lot better when it happens. With that in mind, maybe we don’t want to use our newest or best during actual meals. Lets show them and then remove them. Unless you’re using white runners. Then we can bleach them after and be done.
