Ballerina Birthday

Our little princess turned the Big Five!

The Details:

Before & After: Mantel

I was able to help out a dear friend this week styling her mantle. Here are the before and after photos. I love transformations, especially when deals and savings are involved! I love seeing how just a few changes can make a big difference. Its all about the details!

The details:

  • Candle cages are from Home Goods
  • Vases were an amazing $12.99 at Home Goods.
  • Floral Stems were 50% off at Michaels
  • The Letter E was 50% off at Hobby Lobby
  • The clock was 40% off using the Hobby Lobby coupon




February Mantel

I’m a little late to get on the love boat this month since I have been sick and a busy bee planning my daughter’s birthday party. Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! So I finally decorated the mantle last night using items I had around the house.

The details:

  • Lace silk flowers were from the master bedroom dresser purchased from Michaels
  • The “Every Day I Love You” Frame and Wooden Ampersand are from the bedroom décor that I haven’t gotten around to hanging.
  • The large silk peony is from Nothing Bundt Cake. A friend brought over a cake when I hosted a crafting event last fall and I didn’t toss out the cake topper after the cake was eaten. hehe!
  • Cylinder vases and candle stands are from Home Goods
  • Mini stand is from Target
  • My sister gifted me the cement statues
  • The tea pot was from a gift set
  • I have no clue where I got the elephant. I bet it was Home Goods.

Happy Valentine’s Day all! Wishing you a month and year filled with love!
