Deck the Halls

Holiday Wreath 
Holiday Wreath

Nothing like putting together the perfect holiday wreath for your front door! For fall I actually made mine, but for Christmas I did something a little different. To make a true Christmas wreath is a lot more difficult then putting together a fall wreath for the following reasons: cutting branches, attaching branches to wreath insert, adding holly berries, ect. So I purchased my own wreath from Target for $25.I then added a star ornament and a holiday sign, which I also purchased from Target. So in a way, I did put together my own unique Christmas wreath. See photos attached.

Putting together a beautiful Holiday centerpiece is something that is easy and fun to do! I alternate my glass vase, purchased from Homesense to every season by adding something festive in it. For Christmas I have added Holiday balls that I purchased from the dollar store. It was so easy to do and it looks great!

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas! Porch Decor

Front Porch Decorating
Hi all,

I hope everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit because it’s just around the corner! With that being said, we have already experienced our first snowfall here in Canada! With the snowflakes falling, its been putting me in a Christmassy mood. So, today I decided to start my Christmas cards (I will post about that shortly). For now, I just wanted to chat my viewers in on what Christmas décor pieces and crafts that I have already started this year. I’m going to post loads more so stay tuned!

I purchased the "J O Y" light bulb sign from Target for $19.99 & the reindeer from The Georgina Garden Centre for $39.99. 

Shabby Chic Christmas Decor 
This year I have decided to go with a Shabby Chic Christmas theme. So I have been pairing up vintage/rustic items with new Christmas ornaments. I purchased this window at a yard sale for $20 and all the ornaments from Target for $2 each.

Wedding Season has began

Over the past weekend Mike and I went to a Bridal Shower and a Stag for two of our good friends. For the Bridal shower I put together a little basket of goodies. First, I made 2 signs. One said, “always kiss me good night” on vintage barn board and the other was their wedding date with hearts in between the numbers. I chose to do the basket theme their wedding colors, light lavender and a pale grey. With that being said, I did the signs in the light lavender, that way the bride and groom can use the signs for their wedding photos/décor. Secondly, I added a little ceramic owl, a vintage Mason jar soap dispenser that I made. And, lastly I added a pretty purple flower, just to add to the basket theme. The bride and groom are also using the little wire basket that I picked up at Home Sense for their wedding cards. I also added little hearts with their names on it to make the gift more personalized. The bridal was ecstatic to say the least!

Before the stag, the bride and groom had a bbq with the wedding party. Everyone was making some type of salad so I decided to go with a desert. Mike and I made fruit skewers and they were a hit! Everyone enjoyed them. They’re super easy to make and you can always add some type of chocolate or yogurt dip! 

I will be posting every wedding decor piece I make this year, as we have a few to attend to! 

Enjoy your week!
