Tis the season to honor old traditions and to make new ones. How are you gathering around the table this Thanksgiving? We are sharing a fun printout we put together that helps us bring all those good intentions to the table with us. When we sit down with our family during Thanksgiving, we like to reflect and write about what we are most Thankful for. It's always a fun moment and a tradition we like to keep. And it can be especially fun to hear what the little guys have to say. Do you have any traditions you keep during Thanksgiving? In order to create this look, we added some greenery to the printout. Then, we paired it with a simple black pencil. We chose beautiful white pumpkins and modern ornaments to decorate the table. The white dishes mixed with the vintage-looking green glasses make this a simple, non-traditional, and yet, an elegant Thanksgiving table setup.

So, you just started talking to your co-worker about Halloween and before you realized it, you were inviting 5 people to come over for a Halloween get together. But, then, you start wondering about the décor, right? Well, we have two super easy last minute Halloween décor ideas just for you. And who said Halloween decoration needs to be all drab and no fab? Scroll down to see how we created a garland made out of black boa and how sticks in a jar is so Halloweenish.
Last Minute Halloween Decor Ideas1- The Jar with Sticks There are no tricks to this décor. We just picked some sticks from the backyard and chose an oversized jar to make the arrangement. Then for a little extra spice, we added little plastic spiders and bats we had around the house. 2- Fluffy Garland To create this gorgeous and fluffy garland, we used a garland wire we had from a previous christmas garland we put together last year, and black boa. All we did was to weave the boa around it and voila. Super easy and super fast to make it. Keeping the theme monochromatic made the decor look effortless and chic. Happy Halloween! We hope it is a fabulous one. Don't forget to follow on IG to see all the behind the scenes and our costumes. For more styling ideas visit here.

I love to make arrangements using clippings from my own backyard. Nothing really too fancy. Forget about the white roses or the gorgeous big blue hydrangea flowers. Because, well, they don't have a home in my backyard. Being the maintenance freak that I am, my backyard is filled with mostly, you guessed right, evergreens. Kind of boring, I know, but between chauffeuring the kids around, trying to keep the house clean, etc, etc, gardening usually doesn't make it to my to do list. Unless of course, I need therapy time because I do find gardening very therapeutic, don't you? Today, I am showing you how to style your home with evergreen arrangements. Dear Ligustrum, you are up first.
Ligustrums ArrangementI love to put together this oversized arrangement using a simple, but big glass vase and lots of Ligustrum clippings. There are really no rules when making this arrangement. And the result is always quite stunning.

I am happy to say that Casa Cancado is Holiday ready! Getting our home ready for the holidays is a very special time for me. I love to make the house feel festive, and I also love that there are so many ways of going about it. What are some of your DOs and DON'Ts when decorating for the Holidays? How is your home for the holidays? Here are a few of my MUST haves and must NOT haves when decorating for Christmas time.
Christmas TreeWhen decorating the Christmas tree, I feel that most ornaments MUST color coordinate. Also, the Christmas tree must NOT be too lean. I like the tree to be big and fat with lots of lights.

Halloween has become one of my favorite times of the year to celebrate with the kids. We love to decorate our house, we love to wear costumes, and we absolutely love to go trick-or-treating. I am usually a practical person, I think. Well, at least most of the time. And when it comes to seasonal decorating, I like to make it easy, but still exciting. So here are my 3 tips for when you think about your Halloween décor this year.
1. Group black elements togetherIn order to change the vibe in our living room, I tackled our coffee table with a few black pumpkins, and a decorative black vase I keep in my bedroom. This is a simple look, and yet a very "halloweenish" one. So, if you have a couple of black décor items around your house, bring them together and dress up your coffee table. Black candles with simple candle holders is a great choice. Just add a couple small store bought pumpkins and you are all set.
