Decorating Christmas trees is one of our very favorite things. There are so many styles of tree decorating. The options are endless and sometimes it can be overwhelming. So we are going to walk you through the steps to create a beautiful designer Christmas tree using five key ingredients. This is the process we use for almost every theme so you can adapt it to your style. You can make it whimsical or elegant, but the same rules generally apply to any style. First things fir
Our sunroom really makes me feel like I am outside. I love spending quiet time in the room reading or chatting and I am constantly redecorating it. I love breathing new life into a room. It makes me feel good and my family enjoys it too! The sun has changed and there is a coolness to the night air, but our flowers are still in full bloom, so for now, I'm refreshing this room for late summer!

This is the time of year when we love to be outside in the garden and we are in full outdoor mode! Now that the planting mania of May is finished, we can enjoy spending some leisurely time enjoying all the beauty. Summer flowers are coming into bloom and everything is alive with hummingbirds and butterflies. June welcomes summer and brought us a nice harvest from our berry garden! We are a bit berry-crazy, planting so many bushes and plants, in addition to the existing gard
We hope you are doing well and enjoying this beautiful month of May! Summer is quickly approaching, the days are getting longer, and the temperature is gradually turning warmer! Flowers are in bloom and we are spending every spare minute outside in the garden, planting, and finishing some landscaping projects! This time of year reaffirms our deep appreciation for light! It's easy to see why light, both natural and artificial, are so important to us all.
In nature, we deli
Whew! We have finally (mostly) finished our master bathroom makeover! It seems like forever since we started this project. We have a few other little things to do in here but for the most part, it is finished. We are super excited to share some pictures with you since literally everything used to decorate it is from Petals & Potpourri! First things first, wall color. Deciding the paint color was surprisingly easy. I always envisioned yellow in this bathroom. The color
As I contemplate spring and new beginnings, like many of you, I am so ready to spring forward. You know what I mean, I love that smell of warmer weather and the feeling in the air that we all experience. The energy shifts towards excitement and expectation that things are about to change. Well, I'm ready for that.
After all the fun and craziness of our Spring Open House, we decided that Spring Break was the perfect opportunity to take a drive down to Table Rock Lake. We p
Increasing the overall illumination makes up for those lost daylight hours and bare feeling when the Christmas decorations come down. Brightening up dark corners and nooks is a sure way to chase gloom away.
On our mantle, we left out our white snowy trees and then just added a few Valentine's items here and there. We use white lights to add a touch of whimsy to our home and warm the heart as we push through the dark days of winter. We then added a couple icy berry garlan
This is a time of year and a season that we enjoy and look forward to all year. We cherish Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. For us, it's more about the whole season together and what it represents--thankfulness, gratitude, and love!
Making the shop feel magical during this special time of year brings us so much joy. We listen to Christmas carols, drink loads of coffee, and set the mood by filling the shop with our favorite Christmas fragrances. After about 1,000 t
Happy fall to ya! We are so excited and thrilled to see some subtle signs of approaching autumn! Regardless of how much we LOVE summer and wish it could stay little longer, fall is definitely throwing some hints our way and we are ready for it. We can feel a chill in the air when we wake up in the morning, leaves are starting to turn red, and the days are quickly getting shorter. We decided to start fall decorating with the mantel. We like to draw our fall inspiration from al
One of our favorite flowers that bloom in the summer - poppies! Our poppies are incredibly realistic and perfect for summer. Clusters of small flowers can be used similarly as focal points, but in this case, we chose single large poppies. I placed two flowers slightly lower than the top flower to get good coverage. It is a simple look and so easy to change! Sincerely,
Mike and Amber #Plants #Summer #Decorating #Florals
It's almost the 4th and we've got red, white, and blue on our minds. Celebrating the patriotic holidays is an American tradition. Summer starts with Memorial Day, ends with Labor Day, and features the firework bursting Fourth of July as its centerpiece. And let’s not forget the often over looked Flag Day! It's the season to let your flags fly, it’s warm weather and barbecues ushering in some good old-fashioned American celebrating. We love our country and we love our servi
It's almost June and summer weather is officially here! The weather is heating up and we all want to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine more than ever! Our back patio is one of my favorite places to sit, relax, and entertain. If you are looking for something new to freshen up the look of your outdoor space, we have a fun selection of unique outdoor decor to suit your taste. Creating a functional and livable outdoor space is not really that different from crea
Around Easter, flowers start to bloom and the weather gets warmer. We're surrounded by color, sunshine, family, and friends. We have colorful, fun Spring decor in the shops right now and it has made us really excited to decorate our home for Easter. If you're entertaining this Easter and want to dress up your home, there are many ways to impress your guests. We want to share with you what we have done so far in our home for an Easter dining table centerpiece.
Nothing says spring like a colorful bouquet of flowers in a pitcher! Simply adding tulips to a pitcher is one of my favorite spring arrangements for our coffee table. If you already have one, you can add a lively touch to your interior by turning it into a wonderful vase. We have many shapes and sizes to choose from if you are looking for something new. This chipped enamel pitcher brings a fresh outdoor feeling to a cozy interior. A tin metal vintage pitcher adds a touch o
