spooky scenes

It's almost Halloween! Although this year won't be like any other and the trick or treaters will be a lot less, it's still one of my favorite holidays. I am one of those people that tries and decorates for all the holidays - pandemic or not! So of course the fall decorations were out but as it gets closer to halloween, I love to add just touches of those decorations out as well. I didn't focus as much on the exterior of the house this year due to that most trick or treating will be curbed given the virus and safety but I would like my family to feel like it hasn't been foregone this season.

This is one of the times that I really appreciate that our crates come in a variety of colors. I have found that the our black crates are perfect for creating spooky table/buffet centerpieces. How fun is the one that we did above? Super simple to come together with some simple pumpkins and things that I had around the house. This one was for our large island in the kitchen and hovering above it are witches hats dangling from the ceiling with fish wire. Once the lights are dimmed and the candles all lit, it really sets a spooky scene for a halloween dinner. While we may all be a bit too old to do any actual tricker or treating, I am hoping to have a few people over in a socially responsible way for a bit of a costume party and for some socializing. I have been researching some halloween cocktails that I think would be fun to pass around as well as some themed appetizers to serve. How will you be spending your halloween this year? Don't let 2020 stop you from enjoying the small things - halloween has always been a fun time for our family and we hope that it still will continue to be that way for others! Stay safe and have fun this year!

As always, you can find our black crates here:  amazon

Wall Planters

So excited about some of our new products in the works! We have really seen a need for offering products that were conducive to small spaces and we have some new products that are just that.

Take a look at our new wooden planters that easily fit into the tightest of spaces! Whether you want to grow herbs or have a splash of color with vibrant colors like ours above, this is a great way to utilize very little outdoor space while making the biggest impact. As with most of our products, this planter will come in a few different shades and stains, making it a great choice for any space/decor.

trays for days!

trays for days!

Can I just say how much I love our wooden trays? They are so handy around the house. I literally have them in the kitchen, both bathrooms and use them for serving trays, dinner trays...you name it! They are light weight and come in multiple colors so they are super cute and functional wherever I choose to use them. As the weather has cooled down, it literally is my favorite time to just go and relax outside with a good book. One of my absolute best ways to utilize our trays is to make myself a little snack and drink to take with me while I go and relax on my little patio. This way I ensure that I can just relax and not have to leave my little nook for anything. The best part? I can load up everything that I need in the kitchen and easily transport it all in one go. I'm also thinking that these would be awesome gifts for the upcoming holidays. I have a Silhouette paper cutter and some vinyl that I could easily use to personalize the bottom of the trays with my gift recipient's name or just a fun message for the holiday. I will definitely give that a try soon and let you guys know how it goes. For now though? Time to dive into this book that I have been itching to read for awhile now and haven't had the time! Happy hump day everyone - if you can, take some time and enjoy some fresh air and spend at least 30 minutes relaxing and doing something that you absolutely love!

Obsessed!

Obsessed!

I just finished binge watching Get Organized by The Home Edit on Netflix...again! Just a bit obsessed. I love it so much and I love trolling for ideas on ways to incorporate it into homes using our products. If your kids are anything like mine, they love to read and books tend to be everywhere. We have a family room with built in shelves where we keep the bulk of them but every one of us always have a few books going at a time. This idea, which was presented by Better Homes and Gardens, was perfect. By hanging some shelves at appropriate kid heights for the current books that they are reading, you can create the perfect decorative place for your kids to easily access the books while maintaining an organized space. Check out their website (link below) for a step by step tutorial. Get your crates today in the sizes/colors that you need at our retail partners!
