On Monday, I took my daughter on a wild goose chase to get some cute green and white pumpkins and they were nowhere to be found! Not anywhere! There were loads of orange pumpkins but no white or green ones. So I had to stick with some faux pumpkins for my fall dining room decor. But I did find a neat plant (some sort of cabbage plant? I have no idea what it is) at the grocery store to add some green to my fall dining room.
Ever since I was a kid, I dreamed of having a window seat. First in my parent’s house and then in my future house. I was obsessed with little nooks and hidden staircases and mystery. I can’t see a way to incorporate a hidden staircase in my house, but I have the perfect place for a window seat. I have wanted to put a window seat in this area since the day we moved in, 11 years ago.
I am not super crazy about Valentine’s day. I don’t expect anything from the hubs (he thinks it is a made up holiday by greeting card companies) but I love the chance to add a little pink to my decor for a few weeks. My daughter was born on February 1st and I had a Valentine’s banner up in my hospital room (doesn’t everyone decorate their hospital room when they have a baby?) and I always like to have that up by February 1st to remind me of when she was born. I don’t go too overboard on Valentine’s decor, I just add a few touches to the dining room and sitting area and that is about it. Just enough to be festive, not enough to be crazy;)
Hello! I am here today sharing my favorite holiday addition to our house and it is located in our Christmas dining room! This post is picture heavy, so get a comfortable spot and your favorite hot beverage and come on in. I have already shared our Christmas entry way here. Once you walk through the entry way, you will be in our sitting/dining room.
I am featuring our fall dining room and sitting area today. I am proud to say, I only bought one fake pumpkin and one fake stem of greenery in order to decorate for fall. Everything else was scavenged from our basement among past years decorations and the rest of our house. I don’t know why it took me so long to realize that you CAN MOVE THINGS AROUND YOUR HOUSE. You don’t have to leave decor in one spot forever! The sitting area/dining room is the first room that you will walk into if you walk straight through our entry way.
