DIY Pumpkin Floral Arrangement

Thanksgiving is slowly making its way to us. The thought of family & friends gathering around enjoying each others company and delicious food gets me so excited just thinking about it. Depending on whether you’re hosting or being a guest this DIY will make any table look incredible and such a thoughtful gesture. 

I’m sure you’ve all seen this before, the gorgeous floral pumpkin centerpiece. A perfect little addition to any table for Thanksgiving. I think they are just beautiful and after seeing them myself I put this DIY to the test, and decided to try this out for myself just to see how easy and beautiful it can be put together. 

Turns out… totally a Pinterest success! This was one easy, two minute DIY that will be worth every minute of making it happen. I’m sharing the quickest and prettiest way I made it all happen!
I’ve gathered a easy step by step down below and hopefully it gives you the urge and inspiration to create this season. Whether you’re hosting or a guest, it’s the best centrepiece to add to any space of your home!

DIY Pumpkin Floral Arrangement

Step 1

Grab your choice of pumpkin. Whatever colour you like and bring it home with a smile on your face!

Step 2

Wash and dry your pumpkin. Making sure all the dirt and debris are gone.

Step 3

Cut a hole on the top! Drew helped me here and made the hole big enough to fit our little glass holder! Clean out the seeds inside

Step 4

Gather around your florals. Any colours you like and start playing with them and blending them together. Cut to the length of the vase.

Step 5

Fill your vase with water and add your flowers inside! To make your flowers last longer I would add flower food. And to make sure to change the water everyday to keep them fresh.

Viola!

Fall Thanksgiving Table Setting | Simple & Personalized

It’s no secret that I love to dress up our dining room for occasions. But it only fits because it’s the place that the family and food all come together. And we all love FOOD! Right! Fall and Thanksgiving deserve a cozy warm feel when it gathers so many wonderful things under one roof. This year I’ve put together a simple yet meaningful setting. It’s simple, personalized with gold Leaf cookies giving us all the Fall vibes.

I also love teaming up with different shops to pull together their best creations and to build something super amazing with it all. Putting our own spin and personality to a room is the funnest part. The dining room is always one of my favourites to do because it’s sort of like a chalk board for every season. It’s the most used room in our house. And when the season wipes clean so does the decor in this room. It’s like starting over and bringing beautiful things together that makes my family happy!

There’s one thing I know about a dining room is that if there’s food they will come and they will eat. If they see the love and preparation into something for them they cherish it and love it just a little more. But mostly they come running for the food…

Together with the help from some really awesome shops that love seasonly decor just like me. We bring you this cute, little personalized set up. Nothing too fancy or over done. Just enough to make this holiday even more special with my family!

I’m so thankful to have worked with such amazing shops, keep scrolling to the end to see who helped make this all happen. And show them some love! You’ll be sure to find some amazing home decor and treats to set up for your next Holiday or get together with help from them as well!

Finding That Perfect Dining Room Light | Before & After

It’s super crazy to think that we’ve been in our home now for just over three years. To watch it slowly and progressively change day by day is insane. I mean all of these changes have been made by us and with a small budget. So when we finally refresh something even just a little it feels like a million dollars in this place!

With each new project we get prouder and prouder of each other for accomplishing. We just recently started to search for some new dining room fixtures and found tons on Troy Lighting. I mean tons! It was really hard to decided but we found one.

Don’t get me wrong I loved the one we did have but in the space it just didnt seem like the best fit. It was chunky and long. It seemed that it was squeezed into a small space on our table instead of being spread out with more room and less bulkiness. Drew figured out how to install all by himself with only minor help from me. He did such an amazing job!

I’m so proud of him!

Measurements were perfect and the look is way better in our dining room. I love the look of it and love to look back over the years to where it was to where it is now! Love our home and the way we are making it our own in our own ways!

As most of you have been seeing lately Drew and I are into some little but big changes to our new home. When we first moved in we loved every little tiny detail but lately we’ve been getting the urge to make it more of our own and changing it to our own personal style. So little by little we’ve been working away with what knowledge of home renos we have and our handy dandy YouTube channel!…
