Happy Week of Thanksgiving, everyone! I am so excited for this week and also for Friday because I will be putting up Christmas! Rocking out to Christmas music in my jammies, trimming the tree, ignoring the Black Friday craziness. This will be a special Christmas for us as it is the first Christmas in our first home. So this week will be full of decorating, zhushing, and festiveness.
I relocated our ghost chairs from the kitchen and got some awesome new chairs for such a steal for that room, which I will show you later this week! I put one ghost chair in the office, and one in the living room. I love the additional seating — it’s very convenient! Especially since the sofa is a slipcover that is lovely but gets messed up easily, so if I’m the only one home, this gives me another place to sit without disturbing the sofa. 😉 I’l probably get over that, but for now I just love when it looks relaxed but not too relaxed, ha!
The table was on clearance from HomeGoods and I just couldn’t say no. At this point we are done buying furniture for the house…we will be waiting for Christmas. The living room is more or less put together at this point but there are a few things that I want in order to complete it. All in good time. 🙂
I love orchids. I think they are my absolute favorite kind of plant that there is. Trader Joe’s has them for a really inexpensive price and they are usually all very healthy-looking. My father-in-law is a plant guy and he says he always gets his orchids from there. The top of this table is marble and so is the coaster, so that works! The candle is just a simple Glade Apple Cinnamon candle. Smells so good!
Since we moved in right in the middle of the Fall season, I really haven’t done any Fall decorating. That little pumpkin sits in the corner and it’s so cute. There’s a face on the other side but I like it plain! I think it is from Jim Shore? My mom-in-law gave it to me when she was clearing out some Fall decorations.
Other little Fall touches include a bowl of acorns lovingly plucked from New Jersey by my Aunt Lulu and a faux fur blanket from Restoration Hardware that was a Christmas gift a few years ago — so cozy!
One more view of this new little spot. 🙂
Have a great Monday, everyone!
