What’s up friend?! I am so pumped to be partnering up again with The Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, which is a brand I really love and enjoy working with. Every time I am at their store, I am overcome with nostalgia from when I was a kid and my grandmother and mother always brought us shopping there. When I brought my kids this last time, it was nothing but chaos though, lol. Gabby was screaming and Layla wanted to put every single thing in our cart. Shopping with kids is quite the excursion! We made the best of it and Layla even helped me pick out some of the decorations. Each season they have great finds and it’s always affordable too! I can see why their new tag line is, “Every Season. Every Reason.”
The Christmas Tree Shops had a few different themes this year to choose from. My first thought was that I would go with my usual blues, greens, and orange. Then, we saw the purple pumpkins and knew we wanted to mix them into our decor this year! It’s something fun and different to mix it up every year. I’ve become more of a simple decorator since I became a mom. Less is more to me now. Kids literally get into everything, so I like to keep the decorations minimal but still leave the space cozy and inviting. Instead of just decorating one or two areas, we sprinkle Fall throughout our house. We also add just a few pumpkins in the bedroom, because well, why not?!
My favorite space in our new (we’ve been here a year!) house is our fireplace mantle. And while I wish there wasn’t a huge TV above it, I do what I can by decorating around it. My biggest advice with decorating a mantle is to add some lights to give warmth, then add items with different textures and greenery of course! The Christmas Tree Shops andThat! pumpkins, basket, and sign are such a great addition to this space, giving it that simple yet cozy feeling I love.
I styled up this bakers rack (that I found on the side of the road!!) with pumpkins, plants, and the blessed sign from Christmas Tree Shops andThat! I love this galvanized tray that I added greenery, pinecones, and pumpkins to fill it up. I think the variety really pulls it together. Mixing up different textures is a good way to get that coziness.
Another way I added some Fall to our home is with this kitchen towel and drying mat. It’s subtle, yet a little pop of orange and blue to set the tone in here. I also put a pumpkin on the window sill just for something extra and decorated this wooden tray that I also got from the Christmas Tree Shops andThat! as well. To me, the kitchen is a hard spot to decorate for the seasons, because we try to keep our counters as clutter free as possible. Keyword TRY! But just adding a few items and some twinkle lights make it so cute.
I know that when I go to The Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, I can really find everything I need for the season. They had adorable Fall plates and dinnerware that I didn’t end up grabbing, but I wish I did! The Fall welcome mats also had a good selection. We got one that says, “pumpkin spice everything.” There were many styles and themes of items to choose from, but I enjoyed pulling a little bit in from each one and making it my own. I love how you can do that with their items!
