Hi friends! Even though it has taken me WAY longer to decorate for fall than it usually does, I am happy to say I finally have some of the house decorated! Fall is one of my favorite times of year, with the cooler temps, pumpkin everything and all the seasonal treats we can eat. 


I usually keep my fall decor pretty simple. This year I included my all time favorite fall decoration ~  Mr. Funnybones! I can't decorate without him. He tends to move throughout the house during this time of year {you've seen him many times - here and here}. Different sized black bats adorn the kitchen cabinets as well as the upper half of the wall and a metal haunted house, I've had for years sits in the background behind Mr. Funnybones. It adds just the right amount of Halloween. 


Mr. Funnybones was having so much fun during the photoshoot, at one point he donned a witches hat! To add a little pop of color I picked up these beautiful faux orange peonies and added a mini wood Blessed sign along with a ceramic pumpkin and faux pears in my woven bread basket. 


To add height and a little more texture to the kitchen, I placed my large round marble/wood cutting board behind the range and included some faux wheat stalks. Placing a few neutral colored pumpkins ties the color scheme together. Can you tell Mr. Funnybones is tired of being photographed? He appears to be ready to jump off the counter. LOL

If you're interested in the black bats, I have created a FREE printable. To download the Halloween Bats PDF, click here OR you can right-click on the picture to copy it to word or another program. 



If you decide to use the bats, I'd love for you to tag @BellaGreyDesigns in your social media posts. 

Happy Fall y'all!

Happy Fall y'all! 



It's finally feeling like fall here in Dallas, so I am sprinkling pumpkins around the house. I love all the colors they come in now and wanted to share a simple fall pumpkin table runner with you. 

I pulled out some of my fall decor tubs and dug out my pumpkins - most of them. It is crazy to see the amount of pumpkins I have, but I am definitely not mad about it! A friend of mine told me recently, the white pumpkin weren't popular until about 2005. See those white pumpkins on my table? I am pretty sure I painted those when my daughter was a baby, which would have been around 2004. Was I ahead of the times? Not sure, but I know I loved the look of the white pumpkins then and still love them now.

On to the tutorial for this beautiful table runner, I started with an orange and white buffalo check throw as my base. As I started to build the runner up, I knew I wanted to incorporate my white pumpkins and taper candles, so I placed those items next. Candles not only provide an ambience, but add subtle beauty to your decor. The smaller green pumpkins are the perfect size and shape I was looking to add in, as they make the color in the garlands pop. My eucalyptus garland is a staple in most of the tablescapes I style, {see it here and here}it tends to bring a little of the outdoors in. I simply weaved two separate garlands under and around the pumpkins I wanted to use. I do love the orangish-red pumpkin I've had for years, and knew a pop of orange was needed. It's funny, I am not much of an orange pumpkin fan, I love the greens, pinks, yellows and whites all in the various shades. But being from Colorado the presence of orange, is quintessential with the fall season. The ceramic pumpkin soup bowls I shared awhile back on an Instagram story also made the cut for this runner. I like mixing up not only colors but textures, like the mini velvet Jack-Be-Little pumpkins {also known as Baby Boos, Munchkins or Sweetie Pie}, it tends to appeal to the senses and makes it more believable and life-like. Shop your yard, look for anything you can add such as pinecones, acorns, berries or leaves, it won't cost you anything and it adds dimension to your table.  


 So as a recap: 
  • Start with a base on the table
  • Select a variety of pumpkins
  • Add in a garland or two
  • Remember candles provide subtle beauty
  • "Shop" your yard for anything you can add such as pinecones, leaves, berries or acorns - to bring the outdoors in
  • Stand back and enjoy your new Fall Pumpkin Table Runner

A few weeks ago, my daughter asked if we could re-decorate her room with a beach theme. She knew she wanted the classic beach colors of turquoise, coral and yellow. So we started to build our Pinterest board with inspiration.

But it does help to keep my website running. Thank you! The following is based strictly on my honest opinion. I only recommend products and brands I love and use personally. 

We found the perfect canvas through a company called Photowall.  Have you heard of them? They are a custom wallpaper, canvas print, framed print, poster company in Sweden. You can even use your own photo to create any product they carry! How fabulous is that? I was beyond excited to work with them. They literally have thousands of motifs to look through. Since we knew the theme we were looking for, we searched BEACH and fell in love with one product in particular. Once we ordered the product we chose,  the process was very easy!


I was very impressed with the quality as well as the fast shipping.

Gather up your supplies - toppings, spoons and bowls {I used these ice cream waffle bowls to hold some of our toppings}. Whats great about these bowls are they are edible so you can eat them once all the toppings are gone - that's a BONUS in my book! 

Some topping ideas would be, gummies, marshmallows, chocolate chips, granola, brownie bites, Oreo cookies, fresh fruit, pretzels - the list is endless.  I found the gummy stars and the red, white and blue hard candies at World Market

I have rounded up a few summer finds from Target for the entire family to wear on the 4th of July!
This swing top is a loose cut. I love the ruffled cap sleeves and comes in pink too.

A few weeks ago, I finally decided to organize my Prop/Craft Closet in my home office. I have no excuse since we have been in our new home for almost a year and my office is the last area that still needed to be organized. So today I am sharing a before and after as well as a few tips! 

Before I started, it was a big mess in the middle of the floor, that I continued to add to as each holiday and season came around. I would literally walk around it! NOT proud of that at all! 
  
I just wasn't sure where to begin, everything was crammed together and there wasn't any organization to my chaos, does this sound familiar? If so, keep reading for tips on how I tackled my clutter and so can you!

In our old home, I had a larger space with a MUCH larger closet + a large wardrobe closet I used for storage as well. Since buying our new home, I have a much smaller area to fit everything into and since I no longer style children's parties, I donated all of those props and supplies to our school. Keeping everything in clear plastic bins allowed me to see what I had on hand at a glance, but since redirecting my niche to more home decor and fashion I no longer need much of what I had on hand.
