Decorating Your Christmas Mantel & Cyber Monday Sales

If you’re like us, you’ve thrown out the last of the turkey, ditched the fall colors, and it’s time to move on. Although we can’t believe it, it’s that time again already: time for Christmas decorations!

It seems like some people love this yearly tradition of hauling the holiday paraphernalia out of the attic and filling the house with that fresh pine smell — and some people dread it for eleven months.

We’re the former, but, no matter which side of the fence you’re on, we hope these pictures provide you with a little holiday inspiration.

And, after it’s all said and done, there’s nothing better than snuggling up by newly decorated mantel (complete with fire) with a steaming cup of cocoa and admiring your handy work.

Happy Monday, and, I guess since the radio stations are pumping the Christmas music already, it’s safe to say it:

Here’s What’s Next from the Murphy Women:

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

_____________

Leaving fans “practically [begging] for a sequel” (Bookpage), critically acclaimed author Kristy Woodson Harvey returns with the second novel in her beloved Peachtree Bluff series, featuring a trio of sisters and their mother who discover a truth that will change not only the way they see themselves, but also how they fit together as a family.

After finding out her military husband is missing in action, middle sister Sloane’s world crumbles as her worst nightmare comes true. She can barely climb out of bed, much less summon the strength to be the parent her children deserve.

Her mother, Ansley, provides a much-needed respite as she puts her personal life on hold to help Sloane and her grandchildren wade through their new grief-stricken lives. But between caring for her own aging mother, her daughters, and her grandchildren, Ansley’s private worry is that secrets from her past will come to light.

But when Sloane’s sisters, Caroline and Emerson, remind Sloane that no matter what, she promised her husband she would carry on for their young sons, Sloane finds the support and courage she needs to chase her biggest dreams—and face her deepest fears. Taking a cue from her middle daughter, Ansley takes her own leap of faith and realizes that, after all this time, she might finally be able to have it all.

Harvey’s signature warmth and wit make this a charming and poignant story of first loves, missed opportunities, and second chances and proves that she is “the next major voice in Southern fiction” (Elin Hilderbrand, New York Times bestselling author).

Favorite Tips for a Chic Nursery that Grows as They Do

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to Serena & Lily for partnering with us for this sponsored post!

Serena & Lily nursery

On the Sweet Side

 

All my friends are having babies. Well, I mean, not all of them obviously. I have plenty of friends well into the ages where the term “medical miracle” might apply if they were near to giving birth.

But something was definitely in the water ten or eleven months ago. All I can say is, lucky them. Because the new Serena & Lily nursery line is about the cutest thing in the entire world.

I’m a little bit jealous. Not of all the middle-of-the-night feedings, necessarily. But definitely of the decorating opportunities. The best thing about having friends with babies (besides that you can snuggle them and smell that sweet baby smell and then give them back and have a glass of wine…) is that you can help them design nurseries that will grow as the baby does! If you or someone you know are decorating a nursery—or if you just love looking at them!—check out a few of our favorite tips for creating a nursery that will last long past the baby stage.


 

Serena & Lily nursery

Gardener

 

  1. For girls’ nurseries, don’t overdo it on the pink. Don’t get us wrong. We love pink. We’re obsessed with pink. We could live in an all-pink world. But most little girls go through that phase (I know I did!) where pink becomes passé. To design a nursery that grows with her, don’t overdo it on the pink—you can potentially talk her out of an entire room remodel until the pink-hatred phase passes.

Explorer

 

2. Incorporate versatile furniture. An occasional chair is perfect for any age and that shelving unit that holds baskets of onesies and wipes now can hold Barbie shoes and Matchbox cars later.


 

Serena & Lily nursery

A Worldly Approach

 

  1. Go older with the art. Art is definitely an investment. And when it’s all baby booties and Beatrix Potter characters (guilty) they’re over it in five years or less. Art that grows as they do is a must.

 

Serena & Lily nursery

Adventurer

 

  1. Think about those long nights. Let’s face it: Sleepless nights are sort of a fact of parenthood. It starts with middle-of-the-night feedings and morphs into fevers and Halloween-candy induced tummy bugs. (I speak from experience on the latter.) Investing in great staples—like a comfy chair, lamp and throw—for you, is the gift that keeps on giving.

 

Serena & Lily nursery

Dreamer

 

  1. Incorporate neutrals. Baby blues and baby pinks must be the sweetest colors in the world. But if you’re looking to create a nursery that grows with them, they can be a little limiting. Grays and tans with splashes of the color help the nursery stand the test of time.

 

Serena & Lily nursery

Coastal Traditions

 

6. Play with patterns. Bold patterns give a more grown-up vibe to a space that they will love just as much at nine as you do right now.


 

Serena & Lily nursery

Blue Notes

 

  1. Have room for friends. He’s sleeping twenty hours a day now, but before you know it, you’ll have three boosters lining your backseat and he’ll be critiquing your Spotify playlist before you take his friends to the pool. (Six-year-olds have very specific musical tastes.) This darling daybed transitions beautifully from nursery to big boy room–and is ideal for overnight guests.

 

Serena & Lily nursery

Growth Potential

 

  1. Make it convertible. Those cribs are an in-vest-ment. No doubt about it. Purchasing a convertible one certainly softens the blow and makes it so their cribs can last for years—and keep them safe during the transition from crib to bed.

 

Serena & Lily nursery

Born Traveler

 

  1. Incorporate texture. Just as in any other space, a mix of textures and colors adds so much to a nursery. Baskets are not only attractive, they’re also versatile—and there is nothing more fun than a swing chair!

 

Serena & Lily nursery

Seafarer

 

We hope you found a few of these tips helpful if you’re lucky enough to have a nursery to design, or help design! This triplet nursery may be our favorite of all! And the whale motif is one these boys will love for years to come. All these looks—and many more—are available from one of our most favorites, Serena & Lily. Gorgeous looks, great quality and always something just a little bit different make Serena & Lily our go-to home decor spot and a nursery must. What’s your favorite Serena & Lily style?
