Beautiful Thanksgiving Tablescapes!

Creating a Warm & Inviting Atmosphere to Give Thanks

It’s a week until Thanksgiving and you’re starting to panic, you have 20+ guests arriving and you haven’t even thought past the turkey and stuffing! I’m sure we’ve all been there; the focus around Thanksgiving tends to be more about the food and less about the decorations. However, by taking just a little extra time to plan out the look of your table, the atmosphere of your special event can take on a whole new meaning.

Place Settings: Even the smallest details will bring a personalized touch to your table. A simple name tag or a fresh autumn sprig or colorful leaf, are all easy ways to achieve this.

Accents: Candles to autumn flower arrangements, pumpkins, fruit baskets, pears and branches are all lovely accents at a Thanksgiving table. Not only inviting and warm, but these natural décor pieces remind us to be thankful for the beauty that lies all around us.

Whether you’re traveling this holiday season or planning to stay put to play host to both family and friends, the thought of where you’re going to stay or where you’re going to place your many guests, is one that’s probably not far from your mind. With just a few weeks till Thanksgiving, making sure that all your I’s are dotted and your T’s are crossed, will make this busy time of year one that both your guests as well as yourself will be able to enjoy!

Guest rooms should be both warm and inviting, a place where your guests can relax and feel at home in, as well as a place to escape to from the holiday chaos or even just a much needed nap. Put yourself in your guest’s shoes, what would make you feel at home, comfortable, at ease?  With just a few simple gestures, you can make sure that your guests are not only happy, but also well taken care of.

The Basics:

The basic guest room necessities that every room should have are a variety of standard pillows, extra blankets and throws, as well as a set of towels that should be left out for your guest to access whenever they need. So whether your guest likes their pillows soft and fluffy, or they prefer three layers of blankets to just two, you will be able to rest easy knowing that they will have a good night’s sleep.

For Extra Comfort: 

For added comfort, making sure that your guest has access to a bedside lamp, good size mirror and easily accessible fan, will make their stay even more enjoyable. Having a fan accessible to drown out noise during the night, or having the coziness of a warm reading light are all things we usually take for granted, so making sure that your guest still has access to these home comforts are important to your guest room’s design.

Added Perks:

We all enjoy extra perks, so why not make your guest room extra special with these added accessories! An elegant display of flowers for both beauty and scent, a box of tissues so they don’t have to walk all the way to the bathroom, a warm and inviting wall quote to make them feel at home, a pile of books and magazines for reading material in case they forget their own, and finally a water pitcher and glass in case they get thirsty in the middle of the night. By investing just a bit of extra time in your overall guest room appearance, not only will your guest thank you, but you will feel grateful knowing that you provided a home away from home.

A Charming Bathroom Makeover

Redesigning a bathroom can seem like a challenging project. From the small space to the cluttered appliances, creating a look that is both balanced as well as refreshing requires both some thought and dedication. Making sure to not go overboard with your design is also essential in creating a clean space that is free from claustrophobia!

Today, we show you that updating your bathroom doesn’t have to include all those unsightly renovations or a long day of painting, instead choose a couple of your favorite WallPops designs, outline a rough sketch of your desired “look” and then simply get to work!

We loved how these simple bathroom sayings were a perfect complement to the standout ceiling design below!

For added dimension, we framed the Bamboo Wall Decals in black frames to tie all the colors in the bathroom together!

Our advice, pick one primary area in your bathroom that will carry the design and then build out from there. In the video below, we chose to focus on the ceiling and then accent on the walls and other areas of the powder room. However, the most important advice is to pick a design that you LOVE. Although you don’t spend all your time in the bathroom, it is a place that encompasses beauty, cleanliness and hopefully relaxation, so you want a look that reflects that whether you choose to go simple or bold with the design!
