22nd Annual Holiday Open House

This is your invitation to the most epic day of the year.

Holiday Decor for the Decorating Impaired

In an earlier blog post, we showed you an easy way to make a wreath for the Fall season. Well, now we're back to show you how to make one for the Winter/holiday season.

This is so very quick and easy that we would advise you against blinking. (We wouldn't want you to miss a step!) Ready?

Things you'll need:

-A wreath, a tree or even a topiary. It doesn't matter. It's up to you. 

-A snowman kit. This is comprised of a head and two arms (both of which have dowel rods), and a "Merry Christmas" sign. You can find this kit at your nearest Trees n Trends

Now it's time for you to shine! Attach the pieces wherever you think it would look best. You could throw in a few sprigs of red berries or bolls of cotton. If you're feeling brave, you could even wrap a red scarf around the wreath, tree or topiary. It's totally up to you. Once it's finish, it could look similar to either one of these:

There you have it, an easy snowman wreath that you can make all by yourself, any way you'd like. 

(You can blink now.)

Campfires Without Fires

One of my favorite things about Fall is campfires. I love everything about them! Unfortunately, there are some people in this world that are unable to participate in this seasonal ritual because of apartment rules, allergies or a county mandated burn ban. Lucky for them, there are alternatives.

Take one firepit...

Add a few pieces of seasoned firewood...

Then top it off with string lights.

And there you have it...a fireless firepit. All thanks to Trees n Trends.

Fall's "I NEED" List

I've poured over article after article trying to come up with a list of what you'll need in your home to make Fall 2016 the best Fall ever. Everything listed was found at Trees n  Trends. 

#1. Pumpkins

Not just ANY pumpkin, either -- 2016 is the year of the white pumpkin. Very versatile. It can be elegant or playful, depending on how you're using it.

#2. Scents of Fall

There's no other season that has as many scents associated with it. A whiff of cinnamon (a key ingredient to the ever popular "pumpkin spice") or a bonfire is guaranteed to make you reminisce to that time in late October when...

#3. Nature

Using natural elements in your home decor brings the season indoors for all to enjoy. Elements like dried wheat, branches of berries and/or bolls of cotton would be ideal to replace the blooms of summer. 

#4. Throw blankets

The days getting shorter and the nights getting longer makes one yearn to binge-watch the latest season of House of Cards on Netflix while snuggling up with a velvety soft throw. Trust me on this one.
