Shopping and Sharing

So, have you ever heard of the four steps of decorating? Yes? You must have been a design major in college (Jen!). If not, don't feel bad, I hadn't either. It makes decorating easy though! So for those of you who are more like me, let me share.

1) Focal Point/Framed Art

Ok, so who like me usually stopped here? I've got no shame saying that until I went to my friend's Celebrating Home/Home Interiors show, I usually just stopped when the pictures were hung.

2) Floral

Nope, I never did it. Honestly, I think I was just too lazy. I mean my grandmother owned a flower shop and I certainly knew how to arrange florals, I just never bothered.

3) Ambiance

Candles, lamps, etc. Basically lighting. I LOVE candles, but I don't always do a great job at making them a part of the decor. I just sort of pick one that smells good and put it out. Luckily I now have Scentsy accessories and some new gorgeous candles to fix that.

4) Signature Accessory

Now this is a problem I recognize. I OVER DO IT with the signature accessories. Wine candles, decorated wine bottles, glasses as votive holders.... basically less is more. The key is one signature piece per space.

I had a party this weekend and I'm getting pretty much everything I want right now for less than $50. How awesome! I'm inches away from getting it all for next to nothing, so I thought I'd share my party link so you guys could check it out and see if your space could use some new decor too!

It closes Thursday so shop away!

**Links are to the personal consultant pages of two ladies I shop with. If you order anything through the Celebrating Home link I could get some extra free stuff. This wasn't solicited in anyway so I don't really think this is necessary. But since I love this stuff, I'll give you more details :) **

Haha I love that you called me out :) We all have our "things" we love to do and can do well. You love crafty things and I love to decorate. We just need to incorporate the two together for say...ahem something to go over my couch.....

Ugh, currently trying to decorate my new home. Definitely harder than it sounds! Slow and steady wins the race though, right? :)
