I warned you guys that I get a little overly excited during this time of year, and that is not limited to listening to Christmas carols even before Thanksgiving. As the seasons change, I like to tweak things around the house to make it more cozy in the winter or breezy in the summer. So if you’d like to set up some cute vignettes for an upcoming Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas party, or even to change the ambience around your bedroom here are some tips to help you out.
1. With a little Mod Podge, glitter and gold spray paint you can turn any cute little pumpkins into great accessories for decor. Lanterns also add a sweet touch and if you like the shabby chic look, they give a nice cabin vibe. Most importantly, don’t forget the candles and lots of them. Caramel or pumpkin scents with spicy undertones make for the perfect Thanksgiving treat.
2. If white is too pale for you and you prefer a little more color, deep purples and rusty browns are great for warming up a room. I love fresh flowers but using potpourri and fake leaves will last longer and can be used again the following year.
3. A knit throw and extra cushions on the bed or couch can really add a warm and fuzzy atmosphere to the room. The great thing about using neutral colors like beige, white or grey is they can be used all year round with some tweaking here and there.
4. Now to my favorite part, Christmas decorations! White and gold accessories are really in style lately, but I love a classic gold and red theme. It’s also really pretty to include cute and unique ornaments, just start with the basic bulbs at the base of the tree then add the rest sporadically to add a little bounciness. A pretty skirt under the tree and warm lights will give you a complete festive feel as well. Scented soaps, warm socks, hot cocoa and some gingerbread cookies will be required as well! Xo
