CONGRATULATIONS to HANNAH for winning the I Heart Vinyl Giveaway! AnonymousNovember 11, 2013 at 2:43 PM
I too am renting and it's hard to make a room look cute sometimes when you can't change the wall color and these decals seem like a perfect solution! I like the triangles and polka dots the best. Also, I love your nursery! :) -Hannah

Please contact Liesl over at the Etsy Shop I Heart Vinyl Designs to claim your prize.

I am sorry I was a week late... our latest Simmons Boy made his appearance. Baby Grant is an angel in our home and we have all been soaking it in!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Gold and White Thanksgiving Table

This will be  my first year ever to host Thanksgiving Dinner.  Baby boy has not yet made an appearance, so unfortunately he will only be about 2 weeks old when Thanksgiving rolls around.  That means I will not exactly be 100%.  However, I am determined to make this is a special and of course beautiful Thanksgiving.

Gold and White is always elegant in my mind.  It is glamorous but you can easily add in a few natural elements or another color to make it more simple and casual.  I was thinking of adding a little forest green (think evergreen) for another element.  Just look outside your own home for the natural element- pinecones, acorns, evergreen, etc....

Here are some inspiration photos:

I have gathered a few things already to create a beautiful and budget-friendly Thanksgiving Tablescape.  I found an awesome gold and white chevron fabric from joann's to either make a table runner or table cloth out of; the candle holders are from crate and barrell, the cake stand is from CWonder, simple gold or forest green chargers underneath a white plate, gold rimmed glassware, a simple linen napkin to add a different texture and I am loving these simple DIY evergreen place cards.  A small mangnolis wreath/garland would also add a lovely green textural element to the space.

Warm and Fuzzy

The seasons have officially changed and the weather here has turned cold.  I've had a fire, been sipping apple cider, and slowly getting the house ready for winter hibernation.

One decor element I absolutely LOVE in these colder months is fur (no, not the real stuff tho). I love the texture and warmth it adds to every space.  It immediately screams "welcome, come on in, stay a while".

Now go curl up on the couch next to a crackling fire :)

DONT FORGET ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY....time is running out!!!!
