Well, folks, this year I decided to take it super simple with Valentine’s Day, and I think my shelf reflects that! Here’s a few super-simple pics for you!
I used all the red heart cards for a fun and messy little banner. I kinda like that they don’t all hang perfectly!
So far this year, you’ve journeyed along with me as I tested five new Fall recipes (CLICK HERE IF YOU MISSED THAT AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT NOW), and you’ve seen the outside of our home all decorated for Fall! (CLICK HERE IF YOU MISSED THAT AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT NOW!)
I’ve had a few people ask me about the decor around the inside of the house, and specifically: the Holiday Shelf!
For those who are new around here, my Holiday Shelf is my weak attempt at pretending I have a mantle. Here in Florida, we don’t have too many fireplaces, meaning we don’t have too many mantels, meaning I can’t decorate a mantel for all the seasons and holidays that I enjoy decorating for. So I’ve substituted a shelf in our foyer for that…and the Holiday Shelf was born!
Anyhoo, this is old hat to most of you – so, may I present to you, the 2015 Fall Holiday Shelf!
I know, I know what you’re thinking already. BLACK AND GOLD?! What on earth! Those aren’t FALL colors!
Well, here’s the thing. I’ve been itching to do some kind of decorating with black and gold for a while now, so I decided that now was as good a time as any. And mainly because…I found THIS:
Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone, so, of course, I’ve redecorated my Holiday Shelf! For those of you who are newer to the blog, I’ve always wanted a mantel to decorate to match the changing seasons, but we haven’t lived in a house with a fireplace yet. So in each home we’ve lived in, I have set up a shelf that I can decorate and have a bit of fun with as the time goes by. If you’d like to see last year’s Spring Holiday Shelf, CLICK HERE! And HERE is the one from 2013!
But, for now…
There she be! I call it: Spring is Coming! Here’s why:
On the right, everything still looks kind of “wintery”, right?
Well, it’s December 11, and I’ve yet to share with you the new holiday shelf! I finally found the time to take some photos, so, without further ado, allow me to present the 2014 Christmas Shelf!
Are you singing it yet? “Silver and gold, silver and gold…” You get the idea! Yep, that’s kind of what I was going for!
I’ve held back as long as I could manage! I LOVE Fall! And, living in Florida, I kinda have to make Fall happen inside my house on my own, because the weather doesn’t normally cooperate OUTSIDE the house! No worries, I think I’ve covered it this year!
So, step one: The Fall Holiday Shelf! I’ve already shared that with you, but if you missed it, you can see all the details by CLICKING HERE!
Now, step two: I’ve been over on Pinterest pinning Fall-like recipes since LAST Fall, and I picked out five that I just had to try for all of you! Without further ado, here are my Five for Fall!
