Ornament DIY

Fireplace

No room for a full size Christmas tree? Decorate your fireplace instead. Give your mantle a major do over with oversized garland and lights. While you’re at it, incorporate some candlesticks and baubles. You can even add layers of candles inside your fireplace (as long as you don’t use it) to give a very romantic feel to your home!

Velvet/Fur

Tis’ the season for Velvet & Fur! Incorporate velvets and furs into all of your home decor and accessories. We’re talking rugs, blankets, pillows, flower arrangements… you get the point. Don’t be afraid to use deeper toned colors. Emerald green, maroon, and navy blue are our favorites this season. Tip: We love using textured florals to elevate our centerpieces. Reds, maroons, fuzzy whites, and rich green fillers all make for some Instagram-worthy shots!
