Event Decorating With Tea Lights

I love using candles in my décor and with a lot of events and holidays coming up I will be doing some unique decorating with candles. Currently I am decorating my home for summer and I found a few amazing ideas that you can use as well to get yourself in the summer mood.

American Summer Holiday Decorating With Tea Lights


4th of july

I really love this look. The red and white ribbons add some style to the blue tea lights. I think I would rather enhance this look and do red, white and blue ribbons and candles. Mixing and matching them.

Go a little more rustic with these jar candles! They are so cute and easy to make, just get some canning jars and paint away. If your really good you could do flags instead of stars!

Wedding Decorating With Tea Lights



I am not planning a wedding soon, but I had to share these cute tea light holders with you. They are just so perfect for a wedding, you have a more classic look above and the princess theme below. I have a friend who the crowns would have been perfect for, too bad she got married last year!  Here is a great wedding décor tip, use LED tea lights in place of candles if your venue does not allow real candles. It’s a great way to get the same look, without the fire hazard. The best part is that you can also use deco poly mesh without worrying that it will catch fire.

DIY Pallet Planter Box

DIY Pallet Planter

This weekend my sister did this amazing project that I just had to share with you. She got the pallets for free, picked up the plastic container and created this amazing DIY Pallet Planter Box.

As you can see from above all she did was nail the pallets together to form a box. Make sure it will hold the container you have chosen.



Then add your choice of siding to the pallets and paint. Her result is the one below. She added some cute butterflies she found at the dollar store.

She painted it purple to match her front door. What color would you make yours?

Furniture Items you Cant Live Without

The following is a guest post

Furniture are the staple items within any home. They make the difference between an empty shell of a house to a comfortable, warming environment in a home. The choices of furniture we make are a reflection of our personal taste and style and the type of look and feel we are trying to create within our home is clear with the different forms of furniture we have and the colors, fabrics and accessories we choose. When furnishing homes we often look to the trends, the type of atmosphere we wish to create and incorporate the items that we like.

There are certain Furniture Items you Cant Live Without  live without. They bring so much to the feel of the home and are used for their practical purposes too.



This is one of, if not the, most important piece of furniture you will have in your house. We all need somewhere to rest and sleep and the bedroom is the perfect place to do so. There are so many different shapes and sizes of beds and the choices you make depend on your personal preference and the set up within your home including whether you are single, the size of your room and the décor theme you are trying to create.



The perfect addition to the living room, this item of furniture provides the perfect place to sit, rest, relax and enjoy the living room area. Again, the sofa can come in all different styles, colors and shapes depending on your wants and needs. Your family, friends and guests will all be able to make good use of the sofa and it quickly becomes the focal point of the living area.

Coffee Table

The coffee table is another living room accessory that is ideal for practical and style purposes. It can easily fit within any style theme and is the best place for storage and placing items on whilst the living room is in use. The size, shape and color that is chosen will depend heavily on the design of the room and can be placed anywhere within the room and will become one of the most expressive items of furniture in the room.


Outdoor Table and Chairs

Furniture doesn’t just have to apply to the inside of the house. Having outdoor pieces will enable you to use the outside of your home and have it as an extension of the home. Outdoor furniture allows you a place to sit, eat, rest and relax whilst outdoors and even allow you to entertain and provide the same comfort for guests.

Bedside Table

The bedroom can appear bare if you stick to the usual items such as a bed and wardrobe. The addition of bedside tables, that can perfectly match other items of furniture, will offer the added touches to make the room appear finished in a design sense and will give you somewhere to place additional lighting, alarm clocks and bedroom accessories.

Time to Start Your Garden

March is the perfect time to start planning your garden and if your looking for some great tips and ideas to start your garden you may want to check out the internet for some advice that will help you create the garden of your dreams! The only problem with that is there are so many places to choose from that I’m sure many of you don’t know where to start.

I use DigDropDone.com: This site has a ton of amazing bulbs for you to check out and learn about, making sure you know what you are putting in your yard before you do it. The site even tells you where you can plant the bulbs and you can choose bulbs based on when you want them to flower.

Now, bulbs are not only for a garden. I live in a trailer and I use flowers and other plants, including bulbs, in my interior decorating. Plants not only add that touch, but adding plants to your home help cleans the air and plants have great mental health benefits too!

If your not sure what bulbs to plant in your yard check out the Planting Guide available on The DigDropDone website


Not excited about bulbs? Check out “Bulbs. Dig, Drop, Done.” – an educational effort designed to excite women about the surprisingly simple beauty of flower bulbs. This is one thing I love about this site they have three women that you can learn from and be inspired by. I relate more to Juliana who is stylish and fun. Though I have a horticulture certificate so I’m not new to gardening! Still style is something I am very into, both for home and self. Flowers are always a great way to decorate your home and they also make great gifts!

Summer Dreaming In a Pool

It’s that time of year, we start to think about summer here in the upper Midwest, we really love our pools and after checking out some Columbus Ohio swimming pool ads on my way down to Nashville last weekend. It got me thinking about how I wish it was summer. I miss warm weather and really enjoy spending time outside in a garden or by the pool. I also started thinking about how great pools are to have in your own back yard! Not only are they a great workout and entertainment feature, but they really can make or break a backyard design.


What I love most about pools is that you can do so much with the design of the pool. You can have something simple yet elegant or you can do something playful and fun. Maybe you entertain a lot in the summer and you want that wow factor a pool combined with a great entertainment space can give your backyard. Kids also love pools so maybe you want something that is kid friendly and has a nice shallow area for the little ones.

What type of pool scape would you like. The more natural look so you have a backyard oasis? Maybe you would like the more classical style with a waterfall. Maybe you would like both! The possibilities with pools are endless and you really can create any style you want.

So my wonderful readers, what is your pool style? I would love to hear from you!

2015 Interior Design Trends

2015 Interior Design Trends


It may only be February, but several interior design trends seem to be already taking off. Trends we see increasing in popularity include healthy homes with stylistic patterns that combine both traditional and contemporary elements and bright light blue and green accents. For a closer look, check out these top 5 interior design trends for 2015.


1. Healthy Home

As the health industry continues to grow and mature, so do the efforts to lead healthy lifestyles in every aspect. As such, healthy home renovations are expected to be quite popular this year. A few common “healthy” renovation efforts include:


2. Transitional Designs

There has been a constant battle between traditional and contemporary designs within homes across the country. Transitional designs walk the fine line between the two, pulling elements from both styles. With fewer lines yet a clean, and warm feel, many remodelers and homebuyer’s will be looking for and employing transitional designs.



3. Re-birthed Accents

There is a saying that, “there is nothing new under the sun.” This year, that saying continues to ring true.

With the popularity of consignment shops and the idea of taking something old and making it your own, many individuals have taken to re-birthing different items and accenting their homes with them. For example, it is not uncommon for individuals to reupholster and paint dining room chairs, or sand and finish an old bench to use as a coffee table.


4. Metal Working

Along with refurbished accents, metal workings will be very popular this year as well. Ornamental metals of all shapes, sizes and designs have become increasingly common and show no signs of slowing down. Metal ornaments come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, bringing a unique flair and individuality to any room.



5. Colors

Although color patterns will most likely change throughout the year, light blues and greens are on trend in 2015. If you are looking to stay current, use neutral colors as the base throughout your rooms and accent them with different colors. This way it will be easier to switch out or add different accents over the years.

If you are looking to keep up with the top interior design trends of 2015, then you may want to include these ideas in your home décor. Incorporate healthy home remodels, transitional design elements, re-birthed and ornamental metal accents, as well as trending colors. Most importantly, be sure that you add your own unique flair to your interior design and you will be sure to create a winning space.
