Simple Fall Door Decor

The post is sponsored and organized by Tree Classics. Their team supports and encourages family & friend gatherings and I am so excited to be connecting with them this holiday season.

This season of Thanksgiving has always been a special one for me. I love nothing more than sitting with my family in the kitchen, cooking together and visiting.  Especially because we are all so spread out and far apart – it has become a cherished moment each year.

I am joining some other amazing bloggers to share simple ways to set the scene for these Treasured Celebrations.  You will truly love this blog hop and I hope you enjoy the individuality of their homes!

The first thing that my friends and family see as they come to our home is our porch.  It’s important to me that it is warm and inviting, that they know they are welcome there.  We added some very simple touches this season to do just that, and it only took a few minutes.

I grew up in a home where my mother worked hard to create a simple but lovely home on a budget.  Her creativity and work was such an example to me, so I carry on the tradition of celebrating holidays with a festive home.

I love Tree Classics and the decor that they offer.  We live in a cold and snowy area in Utah, hence we need hardy faux products to handle the elements.  I found the perfect ones!  I snagged the Classic Fraser Fir Festive Wreath in the 32 inch size.  It is made so well and also has battery powered lights.  The second piece I grabbed was the Classic Fraser Fir 12 Foot Lighted Garland.

Note:  You can use the coupon code TCWG10 until October 31, 2019 to get an extra discount on your Tree Classics purchase.  This applies to sale items as well!  

I was so pleasantly surpised at how well they were already filled with pinecones, golden buds and faux leaves.  So much so that I didn’t have to add any other fillers!

They are packaged well and you can reuse the boxes to keep them stored.  You will need to fluff the wire stems and cones.  This is simple and easy.

The battery powered lights are attached and easy to hide.

I used nails and 3M outdoor hooks to hang the 12 foot garland.  It hangs really nicely down the sides of the door.

I did the same with the hooks to hang the wreath.  This large wreath filled the door super nicely.

Now my porch is ready to greet my guests and help them feel like I am prepared for their visit.  I can’t wait to create more treasured memories with my family this Thanksgiving season!

Here Are Some Tips to Help Your Quest

Make the Deck New Again

We know how much of a sore sight a deck with mold and mildew can be. It makes it look more like a disgusting zone than a nice place to hang out. Why don’t you clean it out and place some nice furniture on it? Accessories like wind chimes and potted plants would further accentuate the look of your deck.

Transform your Porch into an Open-Air Room

Turning your porch into another room is another way you can turn your home into a paradise. You can customize it to fit your style. Install white curtains, bamboo chairs, and tribal patterns if you want something exotic. If you prefer a simpler look, include a farm table and a sideboard for storage.

Keep your pool in Tiptop Shape

Your pool would say a lot about you so it is important that you keep it in top shape by regularly cleaning it. You can make it easier for yourself by getting a robotic pool cleaner. Not only do they get the job done faster, they are almost always more efficient than humans (as the machines are now taking over). There are many types and kinds of robotic pool cleaners that differ based on so many different specifications. Check for the one that is the most suitable for you on the website “Robotic Pool Cleaners Compared”.

Build a screen door

A screen door would let more natural light in while keeping the bugs and other unwanted guests out. You do not necessarily need a technician to help you with the door; as you can easily assemble one yourself.

Install a Porch Swing

Another way you can work on your porch is by hanging a porch swing. Lounging on your porch and taking in the beautiful sights and smells of your neighborhood is one hell of a treat. Now imagine doing all of that on a swing. A swing on your porch would also add a nice and elegant touch of style to your curb appeal. If you do not have a porch, you can hang a swing on your deck or in your garden.

Open your space with a wooden mirror

If you are searching for a way to open up a cramped room, consider putting in a mirror. They are a foolproof way of making your room seem bigger than it is. A wooden mirror would infuse a rustic element into the overall interior décor of your room.

Bring plants and flowers indoors

By installing houseplants into your home, you can create a rather soothing atmosphere. It can also help improve the air quality of your home and there is nothing more paradisal than a house with good airflow. The flowery presence would also give your room a completely unique appearance. If you cannot trust yourself with life flowers, you can get faux vines that require no maintenance.   

Turn your attic into something more

Most attics are full of bad and worn-out furniture that just collects dust. Why not transform all that free space into something more worthwhile? It could be a new guest room or den where you get to relax with friends. Turning your dusty attic into a guest room is just one step closer towards turning your home into paradise.

Conclusion

Look no further. Your home can look like a paradise. Luckily, you only need to start with the tips in this article.

Do It Yourself – Halloween Pallet Fences

Yay for Halloween!!  It’s one of my favorite seasons of decorating.  My kiddos love creepy decor, so years ago I set out to find an inexpensive way to take our yard decor up a notch.  Having old pallets laying around (yes I collect these!) got my wheels turning.  I created a Halloween Pallet Fence and I fell in love!  I ended up making so making (and my Halloween Pallet Skeleton Swings) that I had to sell some to make room in my storage area (poor Mr. Farmboy doesn’t have any more space to store them!).
