Thanksgiving Decor Inspiration

kitchen range + tile backsplash // design by Cristin Priest @simplifiedbee

Our kitchen – great room renovation has taken five long months, but we are thrilled with the overall result. There are so many aspects I love, but am particularly smitten with the Sub-zero Wolf range, Fireclay tile backsplash and Neolith countertops (sneak peek above). As you can image, we are very excited to be hosting Thanksgiving in our new kitchen! So recently I’ve been combing blogs and Pinterest for Thanksgiving decor inspiration and recipes. Here are some of my favorites…

Halloween Front Door Decor

Typically I start decorating our house for Halloween the first week of October. Unfortunately, our kitchen remodel is taking a little longer to wrap up and all inside holiday decor will have to be on hold. However, I am planning on moving ahead to make the front door frightfully fun. I’m loving how the enchanting front porch above was decorated using simply bare tree branches, pumpkins and a flock of black crows. I’m also adore the simplicity of the Halloween front door (below) that is decorated using a swarm of cut-out bats and a similar mix of branches and pumpkins. Scary chic!

Here are a few of the most popular pins in the last few weeks:

Round-up :: Advent Calendars

advent calendar 2015 // via @simplifiedbeeHappy December! The first day of the month is always exciting for me, but I’m especially loving this first day of December. It marks the beginning of advent. A count down to Christmas Day. Advent calendars have been a family tradition that I’ve passed down to my own family. This year we even have two advent calendars – one that hangs on the wall that doesn’t have any treats and another my girls talked me into getting at Starbucks  seen above (I’m such a sucker!). Here are some other fun advent calendars to buy or make!
