I have always been a person who tries to stay away from the overly trendy ideas in fear that in a year the things I spent money on will be out of date. However sometimes there are trends that last for years. They may go away but they come back. Those are the trends I will gladly hop on board with.
The trends I am sharing today are ones to make for the coziest kitchen! Keep reading if that sounds right up your alley.
A lamp. This trend seemed really strange to me at first, but the more photos I saw online and in magazines I wanted to give it a try. When doing some research I found that this trend also made it's appearance in the 90's. Anytime I can capture some good ole 90's vibes I'm all about it. The light from a lamp has the coziest ambiance. I will turn mine on when I am cleaning up the kitchen at the end of the night or whenever I am spending time in there in the evening.

Rug or runner. I have had a runner in my kitchen for over a year and I would have it any other way. I love how warm and cozy this rug is and what it adds to my kitchen. Somehow it actually makes my kitchen look bigger (figure that one out). I went with a neutral rug, but I have seen some bright colored runners that add an amazing pop to ones kitchen.
Framed Artwork. I have always wanted to put more artwork in my home. When I started seeing this trend pop up I was excited to try and find pieces that fit in my home. This one (top shelf, autumn landscape) I found at a flea market and framed it myself. Most of the artwork I see is landscape or portraits and mostly antique. I love a mix of modern and antique.
A few other things to incorporate into your kitchen to add some cozy vibes are wooden items like cutting boards, spatulas, shelves, picture frames and always plants!! Plants bring the outdoors in.
What are some things you keep in your kitchen or home to make it more cozy? Drop a comment below!
Decorating for any holiday shouldn't break the bank! You don't have to go crazy and deck the halls to the absolute max, small touches go along way!
Here are some ideas to add some holiday love to each room of your home while keeping to a modest budget!
Amazon is a great place to start! I got these Martha Stewart Bats and Giant Spider there for less than $10. The Eyeball garland is from TJ Maxx- if you dig around there you can find some of the cutest stuff for always way less! Adding just a few items around the tv area makes this a fun place to watch spooky Halloween movies under candle light!
A really simple and maybe obvious addition for your kitchen are tea towels! TJ Maxx and Homegoods are perfect for picking up a set of these. I am really particular about my towels, they have to actually dry things not just look pretty. Along with tea towels for your kitchen you can add...
some adorable seasonal utensils! I like to grab some cute spatulas and pair them with all my wooden and metal utensils. Right now there are a ton of cute kitchen fall décor at Joann Fabrics and its on doorbuster sale!
Continuing in the kitchen we can add coffee cups! Who doesn't love a good coffee cup to celebrate the season. I will place a mug on my coffee maker and use it as décor. I found this one at TJ Maxx for $3.99! Also, did you know you can shop online at TJ Maxx now?!?! Yeah, I know, its a big deal!
If you saw my post the other day then you know that I decorate my bathroom! It may seem strange but only a few touches can take this place (we use often) to the next level with charm.
I LOVE picking up seasonal soaps (kitchen or bath). In the past I would always pick up Bath and Body soap, but I got to the point where I didn't want to spend that much money on SOAP! I found this Pumpkin Spice gem at Homegoods. Pair this with a fall candle and the scents of fall will dance around your home like sweet little ghosts of Halloween!
Also adding a towel in the bathroom with a ghost or perhaps a pumpkin on it is an easy decision!
Last but certainly not least, Spider Webs! These faux spider webs are so much fun. I love hanging them from little corners of my home and adding tiny spiders. I purchased these webs from walgreens but here are some on Amazon.
Let me know your simple décor ideas for ANY holiday! I'd love to add some to my list!
This incredibly easy and inexpensive felt garland for fall. Here is all the info you need to create your own garland.
Here's what you will need:
Felt Balls- I got mine from CutestLittleGarlands shop on Etsy and honestly they are they best priced I could find! Great value. I purchased the Blush Ombre Kit, the Sunrise Kit and a few plain black felt balls.
Bakers Twine- You can get this anywhere!
A large sewing needle
A pair of pliers
Here is the IGTV video where I show the step by step! It is seriously so easy and truly cheaper to make than it is to purchase BUT if you are more of a "I'd rather buy it" type person then here is a link to some really cute garlands I found online!
Have great day! Also leave a comment if you are wanting/going to make your own fall felt garland!!
Every wedding is special to me, but every once in awhile you have one that just really makes an impression on you.This is one of those weddings.
From the first time I met Jess and her mom, I knew that we had something special. They wanted everything I was excited to do and gave me so much creative freedom along the way.
Hope you enjoy this wedding as much as I did doing it!
