Holiday Bookshelf: Halloween 2020

Friday, October 30, 2020

Holiday themed books are one of my favorite ways to celebrate each holiday and also double as the cutest shelf decor! My girls have always LOVED books and I chalk that up to have baskets of books ALL over our house, in the car, in their rooms, always in my diaper bag- they are always within an arms reach and the girls love cuddling up to read! 

Let's Celebrate: Halloween Treat & Dessert Board

Thursday, October 29, 2020


Large Serving Bowl / Table Runner / Star Garland / Mini Latte Bowl / Witch Bowl-Target Dollar Spot (Similar Here & Here & Here) / Mini Disco Balls

It's no secret we are all about the "snack life" over here and snack/dessert boards have become one of my very favorite things to whip-up for parties. I was so excited to find so many festive snack goodies this year- from the fang shaped Pirate booty and bat shaped animal cookies, I knew I had to make a Halloween inspired treat board! I grabbed one of my favorite platters from MacKenzie-Childs, mini latte bowls from Anthropologie and the cutest witch snack dish from the Target dollar spot and got busy filling everything up. 

Easy DIY Halloween Costume: Rainbow Skeleton

Tuesday, October 27, 2020

Growing up, my Mom always had the BEST ideas for Halloween costumes, which I think calls for extra kuddos, considering it was pre-Pinterest! I remember one Halloween my brother was kind of over dressing-up, but also wanted candy... so my Mom made him a skeleton costume out of a black sweatsuit and white felt! A few weeks ago, my Mom and I were talking about Halloween costumes from when my brother and I were little and she reminded me of that one. Right away, I knew I had to recreate it for my girls. 

Making Memories: Pumpkin Painting 2020

Monday, October 19, 2020

Every year our family looks forward to Halloween, mainly because it feels like the kick-start to the holiday season and if you're new around here, we LOVE celebrating all the holidays! Closer to Halloween we are planning on carving one big family pumpkin, but we couldn't help and grab some paper pumpkins to decorate in the meantime. 

Mama was feeling a bit crazy and decided to throw some Fall themed sparkles into my Target pick-up order and honestly, the look on the little ladies faces was totally worth the spur of the moment glitter decision. Sometimes it's just fun to say YES! 

Fall Home Decor 2020

Thursday, October 15, 2020


Credenza / White Vase / Olive Branches / Gold Vase / White Pumpkins / Frames (Large & Small) / Skull- Michaels / Pink Pumpkins- Hobby Lobby/ Woven Baskets

Decorating our home for Fall always makes me so excited for the upcoming holiday season! I don't put out a TON of Fall decor, however the little touches of Fall always make me SO happy and the little ladies love them too. I recently redecorated our entryway credenza and I'm so happy with how it turned out. To be totally honest, it became a hodge podge mess of random home decor and it was time to clean it up a bit. The pink pumpkins are a new addition to our Fall decor this year and I think they look perfect in one of my favorite wooden bowls. I try my best to keep our decor pretty functional, so using items like trays and bowls, that I can also use for serving, etc. is a great way to keep things minimal and also means less holiday specific items to store when not in use. 

Learning at Home: Making a Cozy Learning Space

Monday, October 12, 2020

 Hanger & Disco Ball / Table (Similar)  / Chairs (Similar) / Avery's Dress (Here)

When I decided to step away from teaching to become a full time stay at home Mom, I never imagined I would be returning to the classroom... in my basement, teaching my own children, but 2020 seems to have a lot of tricks up it's sleeve and class is officially in session. 

Last Spring when Avery was home for distance learning we had school supplies ALL over the house and to be perfectly honest, it drove me a bit crazy. I anticipate the girls learning all over the house, but I knew I needed a designated spot for our school supplies AND a spot for Avery to learn where her sisters could also be engaged and playing.
