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.
I 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.
When 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.
Oh, the Holidays are approaching quickly. Temperatures have dropped and boot season has officially started around here. Seems like we are getting in the mood for hot chocolate, soups, and holiday decorations. While I don’t enjoy cold weather too much, I do love this time of the year. So let’s start it off by setting a gorgeous, and yet kid-friendly Thanksgiving table, shall we?
For this beautiful table set-up, we used a DIY Kraft paper runner adorned with washi tape and a Thanksgiving printable. Do you want to see more? Head on to Project Nursery here to see more photos and read about all the details.

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 together
In 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.
