Easy DIY Thanksgiving Decor

I am so excited to share this easy Thanksgiving decor idea! Have you heard of Wallternatives? They are fabric decals that you can use to quickly and simply change a room! And there are so many fun choices too!

After taking down our Halloween decor, our living room was looking pretty sad and boring. Luckily I had the adorable Black and White Fall Phrases Removable Wall Decal Set to spruce things up! Here’s the before photo:

And here is the after:

Thanksgiving Wallternatives

Isn’t this fun? It took me less than 10 mins to put up the decals, and they were so nice to work with. Because they are fabric, they have a really nice feeling to them. I love how simple they were to get positioned too, because they peeled off and re-stuck easily (which is good because it’s not always going to line up just right on the first try)!

This is the large size of the Thanksgiving Phrases pack, which also comes in a colorful version. I liked the look and feeling of the chalkboard style, especially with the pops of color from our fall flowers.

There are also fun options for Christmas, and of course, ideas for all year too. In fact, there are even actual chalkboard options. How fun is that?

It’s so fun to walk into the room now! And it was just so easy to do. Big thanks to Wallternatives for providing my decals for this project. I can’t wait to use some again!

Getting Halloween ready.

It’s hard to believe we are almost half way through October! When did time speed up?


Baby received this adorable bee costume (read more here) and I just wanted to share it with you. I mean really! That skirt? Too cute.

I have slowly been getting our house decorated and will share this year’s decorations very soon.

Are you ready for Halloween yet?

12 Days of Christmas with Six Sister’s Stuff and a giveaway

Oh friends, I know. I am totally breaking my own rule and posting something about Christmas before Halloween or Thanksgiving. I hope you will forgive me though, because what I am sharing today is awesome, and it could just make your holiday a lot more fun!


12 Days of Christmas With Six Sisters’ Stuff: Recipes, Traditions, Homemade Gifts, and So Much More is packed full of fun ideas for gift giving, creating traditions, party ideas, quick and easy meals, and more!

As with all recipe books (though this is more than just recipes) I always want full color photos. Luckily this book is jam packed with them! Not only are there full-color photographs and easy-to-follow instructions, but all the food looks so delicious I think I gained weight just flipping through the book!

Something in the book that I found to be very sweet (honey stop reading right here please), is the 12 days of Christmas for Your True Love. This short little section got my attention! How often are we overly busy during the holiday season, preparing gifts and treats for family and friends, but forget the one who is on the top of the list? I really loved that there was a section full of easy ideas to make your spouse feel extra special during the holidays.

I was eager to try something from the book, but since a great many things are Christmas themed, I picked a recipe that I figured would work any time of the year (most of them will actually). It was delicious! Since I adore breakfast foods, the Brunch Enchiladas were the perfect thing to try out. They were a hit in this house, and are sure to be a favorite if taken to a brunch!

OK, enough talking about it, would you like a chance to win a signed copy? Enter below:

Disclosure: I was provided a copy of the book in exchange for my review.
