It’s a new week! Time for a little catch up! I’ve missed you all. :) We are enjoying all of the October/Halloween things and prepping for all of the Nov/Dec holiday things! Watching a lot of football in-between too. We have also been enjoying movie nights in the theatre room and last week it was Kole’s turn to pick the movie. Nightmare Before Christmas.. again. 4 out of 5 of us might have ended up on our laptops during this one but still a good time. :)
It’s so nice to finally have tables for snacks and drinks in this room!
I made this “Halloween Popcorn” when my girls were little. Just tossed together some things we had in our pantry for them and it was such a hit with the kids that now we make it every October.
This is about as spooky as we get at my house.
We might be a little low key when it comes to Halloween, but Christmas is another story. BRING IT ON. NEVER TOO MUCH. Ha. ;) These are some Christmas wreaths I’m loving this year! How cute are the little oranges on this one!? After I took this pic I played around with the faux greenery and made it look more like the picture on-line and I love it even more!
I bought this cute wreath last year and couldn’t wait to pull it out! The little house lights up and I love the stars. Plus the gold hoop! So good.
This wreath is really beautiful in person. So full and unique. I love the bells and berries.
Simple pine and cedar wreaths area always so classic and beautiful. I love the shape of this one!
Red berries and pinecones just call out Christmas don’t they!? Another style of wreath you can’t go wrong with.
The six wreaths above are all other favorites I’ve had my eye on (I have and love #5 and just forgot to photograph it!). A little more expensive, but they are all wreaths that will stand the test of time and be classic year after year!
Sharing a couple new Christmas trees I’m decorating with this year too. This cute Amazon tree caught my eye on-line about a month ago and I love it even more in person. I snapped this quick after I set it up on my porch Saturday.
I’m thinking of using it in this corner of my bedroom but I’m not sure yet.. playing musical trees with a few at the moment! I love the shape! The branches are lighter green on the ends which gives it a cool look and the lights are so pretty! A great tree for the price.
This slim tree from Target is another favorite. I bought this tree last year for my formal dining room but Addison and I decided we are going to put that one in her bedroom this year so I ordered the same tree again for my dining room.
I didn’t have time to really fix the branches but snapped this quick with my phone just to give you an idea of how it looks. I’ll share better pics soon but I’m very happy with both if you are looking for a smaller tree this year!
Ok.. if you follow me on IG I shared this last week. I could not love this more! It’s absolutely stunning.. especially all lit up at night! I bought this assorted neutral version and then it immediately went out of stock. But now it’s back! It comes in a blue/green version too and I also found this cute flocked version from PB. Bottle brush trees are so much fun this time of year!
I love using them all over my house. Below are more favorites! (This gorgeous brass metal nesting tray is on sale!)
My recent Target order came in and I love so many things! Sharing the keepers here. (I always return a few things and only share the items I’m keeping and really love!) A pretty round gold tray is another holiday staple for me and if you can snag this when it’s in stock it’s such a pretty tray. I usually have a gold round tray on my kitchen island or coffee table to display a few trees or some pretty branches in a vase.
These gold deer are so cute! Perfect to set on a stack of books or next to a pretty holiday arrangement or even on a Christmas tablescape next to some candles.
Speaking of candles.. aren’t these candle holders gorgeous!? I love the ribbed glass and the gold tone rim. Absolutely stunning for any table this holiday season! 10/10 for the price. They look more expensive than they actually are and as soon as they came in I immediately ordered another large candle holder. I’ll show you how I’m using them soon!
I’m trying to not go crazy with Target Christmas pillows this year (I definitely have enough around here already!) but couldn’t resist these two and I love them even more in person. I set them on my counter just so you could see how large they both are! I love the texture on the bobble knit pillow (I ordered this knit bobble matching throw too) and the long lumbar tree pillow is perfection.
This faux fur plush reverse throw blanket is so soft! I love the look and feel of the lining. It reminds me of a lot of my PB throws, but such a better price and it would make a beautiful gift too! I have a feeling this one will sell out quickly.
Fun dish towels and wrapping paper! Holiday staples. These rustic trees are so cute too!
Speaking of trees. I shared these when they came out and would definitely recommend them if you can snag them before they are gone! The branches are so realistic and I love the ceramic pots.
This is another beautiful faux tree that sold out once but it looks like is back in stock for the moment! These come in 3 sizes and this is the medium and small. They are a different look than the trees above but also beautiful and so realistic! I love the little baskets they come in too.
Two stems to also check out before they sell out. I can’t believe the draping pine stems are just $5 each! I bought the cedar stems last year and love them.
I added them in this large vase together just to see how they look! This arrangement is too big for my island so I’ll probably move it somewhere else, but here is just one idea of how you can use a few of these pretty items. Christmas decor is TOO much fun isn’t it!?
A few more options for pretty holiday stems! There are so many fun ways to use faux stems like these. On shelves, in bowls and baskets, in a vase, on a mantel.. the possibilities are endless.
They are definitely a holiday staple and favorite at my house!
I hope these recent favorites gave you a few fun ideas for the holidays this year! Sorry this post was so long. Never enough time to chat all things Christmas decor! You know if it were up to me we would have Christmas decor up in our homes for half of the year.
