Easy DIY Holiday Centerpieces

After you put up a tree it’s easy to call it quits but why stop there when there are so many simple ways to spread the holiday cheer throughout your home? I know…you’re thinking who has the time? Well these ideas are super easy and très adorable. You could probably do most of them during the commercial breaks of your favorite holiday special (mine is The Grinch)!

These are some of my favorite Pinterest finds!

I also liked these less conventional Christmas creations.

Thanksgiving Table Decorations

This is the time of year when we all venture into that sacred area we call the dining room. Nowadays it seems people reserve this room for only the most special of occasions i.e. Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, graduations, etc. Since we so rarely enter this room why not show it a little extra love by dressing it up for the party?

First I will give you a little inspiration from our holiday shoot earlier this year!

Here are some ideas I found on Pinterest that look pretty easy to throw together. Plus you can always ask one of our super talented employees for a little help with your holiday decor…we’re basically elves.
