Raised in California and transplanted to Utah. Married my college sweetheart from Montana, and we are raising 4 nuggets together. I love all things DIY projects and doing them on a budget. I don’t mind messing up and am ok with the 90/10 rule - nothing is perfect over here and it’s fine by me! Encouraging all ‘wanna-be’ DIYers to just get out there and try it! You will be so glad you did.”
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.
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!
