Okay so you’ve found the PERFECT Christmas tree, and you’ve been searching high and low for that box stand that will go with it perfectly…..annnnnnd you come up short again and again. That’s EXACTLY what happened to me! I finally found my perfect tree for our foyer in the new house, (it’s the King of Christmas 10′ King Douglas Fir Slim ) and I just could not find the right Christmas tree box to match it. So, when ya can’t find it, DIY it!!
Amazon fans unite! It’s our favorite day (or days) of the year!! Today and tomorrow (July 15th and 16th) are Amazon Prime Days!! WOOHOO!!! It’s finally here!! What is that you ask? Well, only Amazon’s two best shopping days of the year! For these two days only, Amazon has some AMAZING deals!!! So many great items are deeply discounted making it a great time to snag those splurges you’ve been eyeing, stock up on the necessities, or even begin the dreaded (and often expensive) Christmas shopping!
A few things to note: Continue reading
One of my FAVORITE things to decorate for the holidays (or any season really) is my dining room table! There’s just something about tablescapes that make me feel all warm & fuzzy! Whether I’m hosting for Christmas or not, I still love to dress up my table. Just makes the whole room feel so warm & magical!!
This year, when I was planning our table setup in my head, greens and garlands just kept poppin’ in there. So I went with it! That became the mental (and literal) centerpiece with which I designed everything around. Now, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel here! If you plan to replicate or pull inspiration from what I’m about to show, FEEL FREE TO USE WHATEVER GARLANDS YOU ALREADY HAVE!! No need to go buy more, trust me, I know how expensive they can be! Just use whatever you have lying around! And if it’s not full enough or “interesting” enough for you. I’ll show you some ways to dress it up, without breaking the bank! 😉 That’s actually exactly what I did with mine.
Any of you guys already planning (or trying to plan) your holiday outfits?? 🙋🏻🙋🏻 My excuse is that I’m traveling for the holidays so I’ll have to plan & pack in advance. 😆
But even if that weren’t the case, I’m sure I’d still be franticly searching Pinterest for ideas. Lol. I do it every year!
I noticed, while exercising my thumbs on the Pinterest search page, however, that most of what I was finding was a little too dressy for what I’m going for. Don’t get me wrong…I love a good sequins skirt as much as the next girl, but for our family Christmas, I thought that might be a bit much.
So…I thought some of you might be in that same pickle; looking for some holiday outfit inspo that’s a little more casual, still cute, and can be dressed up or down depending on your choice of accessories. So, if that’s you, then read on Sister! Continue reading
So, as I’m sure you know, over the past few weeks I’ve shared a few holiday round ups from some of our FAVE budget friendly places to shop. Well, as much as I LOVE those retailers, I also wanted to put something together for y’all that might be a little more “gift giving friendly”. Not that giving (or getting) gifts from Target isn’t fabulous, BECAUSE IT IS!!! But I know sometimes, for Christmas we try & step up our game a little bit for certain people in our lives (Moms, Mother in Laws, Best Friends, Sisters, Grandmothers, Favorite Aunts, etc.)
Okay so I know it took me a little longer than planned to get this out to you guys (so sorry! Y’all know hosting out-of-town family for Thanksgiving can be a little cray. Fun, but cray). But anyway, it’s ready now!! And I’m not gonna lie. Narrowing this down to just a few items was SO HARD!!! I’m a Target junkie!! Seriously, I love EVERYTHING in that store.
So after a slight delay, I FINALLY finished my Affordable Christmas Finds from Wal-Mart (The Neutral Edition)!! You guys loved the Buffalo Plaid round-up so much I just knew I needed to put one together for my neutral-lovin’ folks out there.
Most of the items I chose are pretty self-explanatory as far as decorating goes, so I’ll keep this short & sweet today! However, if you do happen to have any questions about styling them, etc., please feel free to ask me in the comments below!! Have fun decorating friends!! Continue reading
