Happy November 1st! What does that mean to me? Snow is in the forecast in North Idaho. The temperatures are dropping. And it’s Christmas decorating time! I, myself, really just can’t wait until after Thanksgiving. I wish I could be that strong, but 4ish weeks is just not enough time to enjoy all the Christmas feels. So it’s happening. Like now. And what’s happening first? The table. Is it just me or is place-setting kinda intimidating? Don’t get me wrong, my table is FO. SHO. my favorite thing to decorate besides the tree. But there are so many choices. Chargers, plates, napkins, placemats, napkin rings vs. napkin place-card holders vs. greenery sprigs. I see so many gorgeous Christmas tables & trying to decide what to do with mine always makes me think. And think. And rearrange. And rearrange some more! And I likely will continue to rearrange up until Christmas because I DO get bored. In hopes of helping someone working on their Christmas table, I decided to do a quick blog about some different place-setting ideas in hopes that it helps yall create yours. I’m not talking entire tablescape. That’s a story for another time. I’m talking everything that goes on top of the placement. That little area can have so much Christmas magic!
I think it’s pretty safe to say that Amazon rocks. We can shop from the comfort of our own couch – while drinking wine and wearing yoga pants – for literally EVERYTHING. And then it just gets delivered right to our door in those great Prime boxes. But sometimes it’s hard to weed through so many different things because Amazon does have so. many. things. Which is why it’s great! To kinda help you sift through, I’ve curated a list of my Top 20 Farmhouse Buys from Amazon for your kitchen & living room/family room. I own A LOT of these items & really put some time into choosing my very favorites! Have fun & happy Amazon searching! Click the read more button below to see 🙂
So I know there’s only +/- one month of Fall left, depending on where you live. In Northern Idaho, it aaaalmost feels like Winter. BUT, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy Fall to the fullest. And it definitely doesn’t mean you can’t get some new Fall decor. Because Fall freakin rocks. Whether you want to use it this year, or save it for next, there are some serious sales going on as they roll out all the Christmas stuff. I’m not lying. Nothing on this list is over $35! I may or may not have taken EXTREME advantage of that (I did). I’m going to use the stuff I purchased to touch up & embellish what I have decorated now, and save some for next year! I’ve organized it all by what you can use them for! Fall tablescape/mantle stuff, wall signs, Fall porch decorations, and just miscellaneous accent-type pieces. Of course there’s cross-over and you can use things I placed under wall signs for your table, I just tried to make it easy to search through. Cheers to Fall. 🙂
Yes, everything in this list is UNDER $50. I wanted to put together this round up because I think a lot of people don’t realize that you can get REALLY cute decor items without emptying your bank account. I mean, we already have to buy presents… possibly expensive plane tickets… and our property taxes are due. So I think we can all agree that budget-friendly holiday decorations are basically awesome! I’ve organized it by store. There’s everything from tablescape items to wood signs to pillows to tree decorations. If you have any questions, just post a comment & I will try to answer it! I had a lot of fun searching for these budget-friendly buys, and I hope you enjoy looking through them & find something you like 🙂
It’s Monday. Word on the street is that Mondays aren’t the best day of the week… but I know you’ve had a strong cup of coffee and I have faith that your day will be awesome. For sure. In hopes of adding a little extra inspiration to your Monday morning, I thought I’d share some of my favorite farmhouse style decor buys for the coziest master bedroom! We’re talking bedding, pillows, and throw blankets. Which is actually really exciting to me, and hopefully you too!
This is probably my most commonly asked question on my Instagram (@everydaykacie). “Did you make that headboard or buy it?” And the answer? I made it! And it’s probably the easiest DIY project I’ve ever done. Ever. I’m not lying. Here are step-by-step instructions on creating your very own wooden headboard in under one hour for under one hundred dollars! Can’t beat that.
If you haven’t guessed already, I’m Kacie! I’m a mama to a sweet seven-year-old boy and the cuddliest two-year-old lab. My husband and I have been married 7 years, together for 9 years. He’s my best friend and my adventure buddy. My family and I recently moved to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho where we built our new home. Which I am (clearly and obviously) having so much fun decorating. My mama is my inspiration and the best decorator I know. I’d say my decor style is modern-minimalist-farmhouse. If that’s even a thing. If it’s not, it is now!
