Holidays at Home with Emily Jackson

We teamed up with the lovely Emily Jackson, life and style blogger at Ivory Lane, to help decorate for Halloween!

Emily’s style is classic and functional; it has to be! She’s a mother of a darling little girl and a new baby boy! Home decor can also be classy yet functional. Although decorating for the holidays can feel a bit overwhelming, incorporating seasonal items with your everyday decor helps your home feel more versatile and frees up time so you can focus on fun family traditions, like decorating cookies!

The key to making this look complete is starting with a base of everyday items like candlesticks and platters. A masquerade mask, an owl, a spooky tree, netting, and some festive cookie jars are the only Halloween themed items in this table-scape yet if feels full of Halloween spirit! The best part of a seasonal look that is based on everyday decor is how easily items can be replaced to carry into the next season. For example, switch out the netting with sprays of fall leaves, the jars with ears of corn, and add a few gourds and you’ll have a look ready for Thanksgiving!

Come visit us and we’ll help you put together the perfect seasonal arrangement. Plus, Halloween has been marked 50-75% off! Also, make sure to check out Emily’s post about fun Holiday Traditions on her blog, Ivory Lane.
