Do you know what’s almost better than finding a $10.00 bill in the recesses of your wallet? A post that you wrote and forgot that it was ready. Better late than never friends!
Seasonal home décor doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg, especially when you start planning early. Scout thrift stores for economical and sometimes vintage finds. While thrifting there are a few tips to keep in mind. Every thrift store asking price isn’t always the best one. On more than one occasion I’ve been floored by the price tag. Some items can be purchased for less at outlet malls and stores like TJ Maxx and Ross. Also, make use of those 40% off coupons from the craft stores. If you don’t get them in the mail or by email you can always download them onto your Smartphone.
Cake and cupcake stands used as decor gives you more decoration options. Here I used a cupcake stand to display small flower pot votive holders. Glass stones were placed in each one along with small flowers and a tiny bit of greenery. Just think of the possibilities for other holidays!
Well placed vignettes throughout your home offers an opportunity to accessorize with seasonal décor without a massive budget or supply commitment. Decorators recommend that you use an odd number of pieces to create balance and symmetry. However, sometimes you may feel the need to break the rules. Find what works best for you. Books, mirrors, and trays work well as a foundation to hold your treasures.
The vignette on this console table uses a mirror, hurricane holder, plus a faux mother of pearl holder and small pillar. A dainty serving set with tiny pink flowers are a definite work well for warmer weather.
Tablescapes are a beautiful and fun way to enjoy the seasons and holidays. You can use glass dinnerware or even paper or plastic. This charming table from House Beautiful echoes spring but also transitions well into summer.
If your taste leans more towards seasonal and holiday trends, be sure and shop after the season and holiday ends. Retailers slash their prices drastically and it’s a great way to build your decorating stash. Are you an after the season shopper or is it just me?
These are the linky parties I participate in. Drop by and show them a little love!
