Fall Tablescape

Hey you guys, I hope you're enjoying your day. I really hope you've been enjoying the beautiful colors outside too. I wanted to out together a fall tables cape for you and this is what I can up with this year. I usually stock with neutrals but this year I was really feeling the dark moody colors. colors I can find in my own backyard. so here sh is in all her fall glory.


Layers, layers, layers I love layers each piece of my tablescapes. I use these diy wood charges all the timothy go with everything. Classic white plates are a must have. I have a large collection of cloth napkins I use for holiday and seasonal tables. You can find good ones at Homegoods, WorldMarket & Potterybarn.

I love this view because it shows all the beautiful colors and textures of the space. The gorgeous Loloi rug below and the pop of white table and the plaid throw, I mean tablecloth. Then the layered place settings and last the centerpiece. a good table is layered you guys. depth and texture and layers.

Look at those cute arrow stems! I cut them from my yard and they scream fall to me. The warm maroons and deep greens are giving me life!
The beautiful floral arrangement is in a lovely vase from PotteryBarn. I really love how it turned out. I used real and faux florals and stems for it and you can't even tell which aerial and which are faux. its so wispy and fun. 
I love adding little candles to my tablescapes. They add such a pretty warm glow. These small white votives are from Hobby Lobby. Its fun to mix different sizes of candles, just keep them the same color so they look cohesive.

You can get sources to all the items on this table with the free liketoknowit app just search countrygirlhome
Above is a fun view I like to do with my tablescapes. This view shows all the pieces that are on the table. 
I love how this centerpiece turned out. It's a mix of real and faux flowers & stems. The plums were a gift from a neighbor and they are the perfect addition to the tablescape, don't you think?
I adore the warm fall colors used on this tablescape. I love me some whites but in the fall I'm drawn to darker warm colors like these.
Thank you so much for being here and for your support, it really does mean so much to me.

Autumn Kitchen

 
Hello and Happy fall!
Today I'm sharing a bit of my fall kitchen. I kept things simple by bringing in real branches from my yard. Wee recently had some really strong winds and sadly it blew over on of our maple trees.

Even my open shelving in the dining area got a little fall d├ęcor! I added some beautiful DIY printable art from the shop WestWoven on Etsy. I added some more fall stems and some pretty wood vases.

                Adding cozy throw blankets and layers help you home feel cozy, warm and inviting.

 
Candles are another way to make things feel cozy. I mean who doesn't love the warm glow of a yummy smelling candle. This one is called falling leaves from Little Sparrows Candle Co on Etsy, and it smells so good!

 

I made some free leaf art from stems in my yard. I Just taped them to a piece of white textured paper and put it in a gold frame, so easy!

 
Thanks for stopping by. Its almost October, can you believe it! That's means pumpkins and candy!
Have a great day my friends

Fall in the Bedroom

 
Hey, hey, hey! How are you doing today! Can you even believe that I've done 2 blog post this month? I know, miracles do happen! I'm so excited to be sharing my bedroom with you today. I added more cozy throws and some new decorative objects.
I'm so happy with the cozy feel of this space.
 
 
 
I finally snagged this stone knot from the Studio Mcgee line at Target. I've been wanting it for moths and I was at my local target and it was like it was meant to be cuz my eyes went right to it! You better believe  I ran as fast as I could to get that knot
 
Im always cold in the fall and winter so I always have a warm blanket near by. This chunky knit throw from Donna Sharp is so soft and cozy. I'll link it and all the other sources for this room in my linketoknowit just search 'countrygirlhome"



 
I love this little sitting area where I can sit back put my feet up and relax with a good book.

Thanks for coming and visiting. I'm so glad you took the time to come say hello!

Have a wonderful day friends,

HOLIDAY HOUSE WALK-BEDROOM


Do you decorate the bedrooms in your home?
I love adding a little Christmas cheer to each room in our home.


This tree was out in or family room last Christmas. But this year I wanted to put it in our master bedroom. I/m so glad I did. I used neutral ornaments with some faux juniper stems, brass bells, frosted mini pine cone stems and blue berries.


I usually have some sort of blue in my room so i kept it simple and cozy by adding some juniper stems on our night stand and a wreath above our bed.



Blue, white and mercury glass ornaments in a bowl make it feel like Christmas in our room.


 I just love the reflection of the tree in this little mirror. 


The basket weave tree color was a new addition this year. I like it better than tree skirts because it doesn't get caught in the vacuum,  I never have to straighten it.


I made a swag to hang on the art on my wall.


Throw a cozy knitted fur trimmed blanket on the bed and you've got yourself a cozy Christmas bedroom


I added some bells and blue berry stems to this faux wreath.



Thanks for stopping by. Have a happy Holiday season.

The tradional red, green and white colors were what I settled on. I love the pops of red. I have to have some kind of red in my home in December



My kithcen even got a few Christmas touches. I made a hot cocoa bar for the kids, oh and for me too!
I have cozy gingham and knot pillows on the couches and lots of warm soft blankets for snuggling in front of the Christmas tree.



Ill be honest and say that I've done about 3 different tablescapes for Christmas. I know but I have been having so much fun decorating!



My corner fireplace is a hard one to decorate because its in a corner!! I don't love this space but I have to work with what I've got. I layered some of my favorite signs. Hung a pretty wreath and a felt ball garland, bottle brush trees and hung our Pottery Barn stockings by the fire place of course!


Don't you just love the layered signs!! I have a thing for signs, they are one of my favorite home decor items. 


I love this flocked tree so much. I ordered it online last year and it did not disappoint!


Brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favorite things! I made this tree box from Kristen @ EllaClaire blogs tutorial. It was so easy and fun to make. 



Now Im going to sit by the fire and Christmas tree and drink some hot cocoa. Ok not really, that's what I want to do but I'm going to go do some laundry.
 Thats the life of a mom for ya.


Thanks for being here!
Happy Holidays

HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE



Do you love cot chocolate as much as I do?
Well today I'm sharing my favorite easy homemade hot chocolate recipe with you 


HOMEMADE HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE
Ingredients
·      1 Tablespoon Hershey’s cocoa powder 

·      1/3 cup white sugar (use 1/4 cup sugar if you like your hot chocolate less sweet)
·      1 3/4 cups milk
·      1/4 cup milk (to be used separately from other milk)

Directions:
1. Stir together the cocoa powder & sugar in a medium saucepan.
2. The cocoa powder will be lumpy, and that’s normal. Just blended them together well.
3. Add 1/4 cup of milk, you can use any kind of milk.
4. The cocoa and milk won’t mix together well. You can change that by applying heat.  Bring the mixture to a low boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly.  
5. I let it boil for a minute or two, until the sugar is dissolved.  Don’t let it burn! Continue stirring!

6. Once it’s all mixed together, I add the rest of the milk

Adding the cold milk will drop the temperature so you’ll need to turn the heat back up to get it hot again.  
Serve in a cup hot chocolate mug or cute cups like these cappuccino cups from Sweezy on Amazon.


 I like to top my hot cocoa with some whipping cream and cinnamon


You can also add some crushed up candy canes for a peppermint flavor



Have fun adding other flavors to your hot cocoa. The possibilities are endless!


Enjoy your cup of yummy Hot Chocolate!
Have a great day.
