Is it me or is December flying by this year? With Christmas being in just over a week, I put together some last minute gift ideas from Amazon Prime for everyone on your list. And no, this post isn’t sponsored. I just thought it might be nice to do something a little different than everyone else and save the day for all you last minute shoppers out there. 😜 So without further ado, here ya go!
So what do you think? I can vouch for almost everything I’ve included here except the boots and gold bracelet. Although, I will say that Thorogood has been around for a long time and all their boots are made in the good ol’ USA. The bracelet I know nothing about, but the brand seems to have good reviews and it’s not too pricey for a gold bracelet. I wouldn’t be mad to find it in my stocking on Christmas morning. 😉 Anyway, all the rest of the things my husband, kids, or I currently have or have had in the past and would recommend! Now get to it! If you order soon, your gifts should arrive in time!
Heyyy! Welcome to the Something Different Late Fall Home Tour. I’m super excited to share some of my fall looks with y’all, so let’s jump in! When it comes to fall decor, I haven’t really gone over-the-top in the past. Actually, I think I’ve put more effort into decorating our home for fall this year than ever before!
For me, fall is a time of transition. It’s a time to cozify our home and prepare for the long winter ahead. I usually focus on making the areas of the home where we gather feel festive, warm, and welcoming. For instance, I love to add pumpkins and warm-toned dried florals to our kitchen and dining space.
I also find myself starting to layer on the texture with extra cozy pillows and blankets in the bedrooms. If you’re a rug hoarder like me, it’s also nice to whip out any thicker rugs that’ve been stowed away, saving the thinner pile ones for the warmer months.
As most of you know, we’ve been remodeling our home for about four and a half years now. We’ve only been here for three. So up until this point, most of my energy and funds have been spent remodeling with little very little left to use to actually decorate for each changing season or the holidays. We’re in the process of wrapping up the exterior of our home, which means we’re super close to being done with it! That being said, I’m hoping to be able to exert more effort into seasonal decorating from here on out. For now though, just being able to add little touches here and there makes a huge difference and helps our home to feel nice and cozy for the cooler weather ahead!
Thank you so much for reading! Make sure to check out all of the other super talented ladies in the tour as well! Cheers!
Ah, Anthropologie … so pretty and so pricey. That’s why when I saw they’re having what they call a “holiday hosting event” I jumped on the chance to get 20% off everything I’ve had saved in my cart recently. Ya feel me? 😉😉 Then I fell down the rabbit hole and started browsing ALL THE THINGS and thought, heyyy this is what I’d get if I had a bunch of expendable income to host a lavish holiday party with overnight guests. Alas, that’s not the case, but I’d be more than happy to settle for just a few of these things because they’re just so good.
All of these pretty things together would make the most epic holiday tablescape ever. I’ve actually never been one to create elaborate tablescapes because, in all honesty, we don’t really have anything worthy of one at this point in our lives. 😂 When I think tablescape, I think special dishes and flatware, a tablecloth or runner you wouldn’t leave out because the kids would use it as a napkin, and other such fancy things that need hand washed and therefore don’t get daily use. Granted, some of the things I’ve chosen are actually dish washer safe (hello pretty gold flatware!), but others like the gorg plates aren’t. But if you’re down with hand washing a few times a year for the sake of owning something ridiculously beautiful, scroll on, these babes are for you!
And there you have it! Put a big fat check next to “tablescape” on your holiday to-do list and move on to “guest accoutrements.”
In fact, the first thing that comes to mind when I think about having a guest stay over is bedding. I’ve always loved Anthro’s bedding. Their designs are always so on point and the quality is never lacking IMHO. Granted, it’s a bit expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for, am I right? 🤷🏼♀️ And I’m totally digging all of these things together. The blush velvet pillow with little leopards all over it? Yep. Add to cart. They also have similar sheets here. 😉
I chose the sheets above as opposed to the leopard ones, however, because they’d look so dreamy with this quilt. I love mixing different textures and shades of neutrals. It makes for a pretty dreamy place to sleep, if ya ask me! The throw blanket below is very similar to one I have in both style and materials. It’s made of chenille and the one I have is hands down my fave throw blanket I’ve ever owned. It’s super soft and just the right weight.
That’s it! Like I said, these are some of my faves, but nearly everything is 20% off at the moment. So whether you’re looking to entertain guests or just buying gifts, go check it out the Anthro sale immediately because it ends tonight! And no, this post isn’t sponsored. Just wanted to share the good news with y’all. 😉
