Living Room Refresh for Spring with Petal and Stone at Christmas Tree Shops andThat!

 This post is in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat! A brand I love! All opinions here are my own. 

Hey Friends!
As much as I love Christmas decor, I'm planning ahead this year and already thinking about my home decor after the holidays! Today I've partnered with Christmas Tree Shops andThat! to give our living room a cottage chic refresh using items from their exclusive Petal & Stone line - available in stores the day after Christmas! 



After all of the Christmas chaos is over, I like to introduce a neutral and calming decor theme into our living space. Christmas Tree Shops andThat's Petal & Stone line is just that- effortlessly chic, romantic and fresh. This line has the best of both worlds with shabby chic wall decor, storage solutions, farmhouse style bedding and more. I'm so excited to share an exclusive sneak peek of this incredible line styled in our home! 

My favorite part of our living room is the fireplace and it's so fun to decorate each season!



For the transition into spring, I hung up this gorgeous white floral wreath, and then layered this beautiful Petal & Stone wood beaded mirror in front of it. Their lush floral garland and some fresh flowers add the perfect touch of fresh color. 




These beaded and distressed wooden candle holders are beyond gorgeous, and look so luxe! Add them to any space for a balanced and elegant look. 




White distressed paint and a filigree frame give this sweet little photo clip holder a shabby chic feel. I printed and clipped on a vintage bird postcard to add to the spring ambiance. It look's perfect layered in front of this swoon-worthy beaded wooden mirror, which gives the space a much larger feel!




The neutral tones of this gray-blue and white basket are perfect for the transition from winter into spring. Beautifully textured pillows with ornate stitching (and fun tassels!) complete the look on our hearth.


The wall over our couch gets a makeover every season, and I'm loving the shabby chic vibes that Petal & Stone's exclusive line brings to this space. 



How fun is the romantic white frame with lambs ear and peony floral accents?! It adds so much life to our gallery wall. Above the shelf we hung this beautiful beaded arch- one of my favorite pieces from the line. It has a great weight to it, and so much detail! On the shelf, a rustic bird cage holds a candle. This fun marble planter with greenery and wire stand rests atop a stack of vintage books. The cutest little 'home sweet home' wood sign sits next to a shabby chic frame with lavender print; and a bundle of flowers sits inside of an open weave basket.





On the other side of the shelf, a filigree frame and the cutest little birdcage clock round out the gallery wall.  Textured pillows add a pop of springtime blues to the couch.




On the end table, I added a chic white lamp and a frame with a vintage botanical print. This adorable little burlap tote with lace trim is the perfect storage solution for any knick knacks or electronics.




This whitewashed beaded tray with rope handles is the perfect addition to our newly refinished coffee table. I nestled this colorful floral arrangement in marble container, lambs ear and a rustic birdcage inside.




Over our refurbished TV stand, we hung this HUGE wall arch. I am OBSESSED with this decor piece and literally could not believe the price point! (*gasp * under $40!!) It's incredibly well made, heavy and so ornate! It was exactly what this large space over the television needed.


I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! Be sure to head to your local Christmas Tree Shops to shop their exclusive Petal & Stone line. I know you will be impressed with this beautiful and unique collection.

I had so much fun shopping in-store for Christmas Tree Shop's Share the Joy event, and quickly filled my cart with a ton of festive holiday goodies! 





This year I decided to add a little Christmas cheer to our kitchen by decorating this space around our apothecary cabinet, and creating the cutest little hot cocoa bar! 





I hung this beautiful festive wreath from our antique window, I love the pop of red from the berries. I also added glittering flocked trees, an adorable LED lantern, this cute "joy" arrangement, and a vintage-looking tin and wood sign to the shelf. Can you believe that I got all of the items on this shelf for under $20?! Christmas Tree Shops had a fabulous selection of affordable farmhouse christmas items that were perfect for my decor theme! 




I used one of my old tiered trays to create our hot cocoa bar. I added an assortment of beautiful, festive mugs (for under $5 each!) - complete with red striped straws for sipping. Then I tucked in a few sprigs of greenery, this adorable hot cocoa bar sign and a light up Santa on top! Christmas Tree Shops had a ton of cute holiday mugs to choose from, perfect for hot cocoa on a snowy day. I know that the boys and I will be cozying up to this hot cocoa bar plenty this season! 

I just couldn't pass up this 'Farm Fresh Christmas Trees' tin sign, it fit perfectly under the shelf and adds so much character to this space. I also added a cute wreath adorned tea towel, and Christmas mug on top of our antique kitchen scale. And of course, no Christmas scene would be complete without a big, snowy Christmas tree on display! Christmas Tree Shops had SO many wonderful little trees to choose from, but I just loved this natural looking fir with its snow-tipped ends, and tin bucket. 





I'm absolutely loving the merry and bright vibes that these gorgeous Christmas pieces bring to our kitchen , and I hope that you enjoyed this early sneak peek of our holiday home!

Fall Mantle Decor with Christmas Tree Shops andThat!

This post is in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat! All opinions shared here are my own.

Happy Fall, Sweet Friends! 
The arrival of September means "all things fall" in the Bentley household, so of course I had to head to our local Christmas Tree Shops to find the perfect autumn goodies for our fireplace mantle.
For every season and every reason, Christmas Tree Shops has the absolute best assortment of affordable and stylish items for your home. I love to visit their store and explore their ever changing assortment, it's like a treasure hunt every time! 





This year I decided to go with a warmer color scheme for our fall mantle. I was inspired by this beautiful wreath, with it's vibrant orange pumpkins, rich brown pinecones, white cotton and green foliage. It was the perfect addition to our weathered window frame.




On the mantle I added these adorable wooden pumpkins tied with raffia bows, ceramic pumpkins from last year, chunky candles and the cutest basket with tiny pumpkins spilling out. 




On the hearth I added another wooden basket filled with pumpkins; I loved the warm leather handles and "welcome" message on this one. On the opposite side, I layered two pillows in contrasting tones of burnt orange and navy blue plaid.






I'm loving the warm and cheery fall vibes that these autumn pieces are adding to our living room, and I hope that you enjoyed this peek at our fall mantle. For more fun, seasonal finds, check out your local Christmas Tree Shops andThat! and be sure to share this post with your fall loving friends!

Summer Hair Care Routine with Hair Food



This post is sponsored by Hair Food. All opinions are my own. Thank you for the supporting the brands that make BentleyBlonde possible!

Hi Beauties! 

I hope you all have been staying healthy and safe! We just entered 'phase 2' of our Coronavirus Recovery Plan here in Maryland, and the feeling is surprisingly bittersweet. As thankful as I am that our state is seeing lowering infection rates and beginning to reopen many non-essential businesses, this precious time at home with my family has been a blessing in disguise. I am so thankful for this opportunity to "slow down" and soak in all of these moments together. No crazy schedules or commitments to keep, just long summer days at home with my boys.
During this time at home, I've also rediscovered the importance of self-care. Being a busy wife and mom means sacrificing a lot of "me" time, but the one essential thing I do EVERY single morning is enjoy a shower and wash my hair. When you look good, you feel good .. am I right?! Because I do wash my hair every day, it's extra important that I use products that are sulfate free, color safe and healthy for my hair.

Over the past couple months I've been using a new shampoo and conditioner combo from Hair Food. It's their Tea Tree & Lavender Water Shampoo & Conditioner and guys.. IT'S. SO. GOOD. This combo contains a lightweight recipe that nourishes your hair, while leaving it manageable with body and bounce! All Hair Food products are also free of sulfates, dyes and parabens. Hair Food's mission is simple, feed your hair like you feed your body



My hair looks, feels and smells amazing after using this duo, and I feel good knowing that my hair is getting the nourishment it needs!

Easter Tablescape

This post is created in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, a brand I love. All opinions are my own.

With the early arrival of warm weather this year, my mind is already on all things spring. I've been daydreaming about planting a new garden, enjoying loads of sunshine, and best of all, celebrating Easter! Today on the blog, I will be sharing our simple and festive Easter table and decor in the dining room. 

You guys know I absolutely love decorating for every season and holiday, so I was beyond excited to team up with Christmas Tree Shops andThat! to give our dining room an Easter makeover! If you've never visited a Christmas Tree Shops location, what are you waiting for? For every season, and every reason - they've got you covered y'all! With an ever-changing assortment of products, every trip is like a treasure hunt, and who doesn't love that?!

 

The store was brimming with the cutest Easter goodies and decor;  egg laden wreaths, rabbit adorned dinnerware and festive figurines were catching my eye at every turn! After way too many bunnies hopped into my cart, I headed home and got started decorating with my new spring goodies.


This year, I decided to go with a muted color palette for Easter by incorporating shades of cream, baby pink, light blue and yellow. A few sweet little bunnies had to make an appearance of course, as well as touches of greenery and speckled eggs to breathe life into the space.


For table settings, I simply couldn't resist these floral bunny plates, wooden bunny napkin rings, eyelet napkins and milkglass-esque goblets. I mean, how cute are they! 


For the centerpiece I used a doughbowl that I already had in storage, and filled it with a gorgeous floral candleholder and eggs I had picked up at Christmas Tree Shops. This was a really affordable option that adds a fun pop of color, and is even pretty at night when the candle is lit!


On my tiered tray, I added this adorable wooden bunny sign, glass bunny figurines and a lively succulent, along with a few wood pieces I already owned. I also attached this lush spring greenery wreath from Christmas Tree Shops' stunning 'Petal and Stone' line to our antique window.



I hope you enjoyed this peek at our Easter table and dining room. Be sure to check out Christmas Tree Shops andThat! for more fun seasonal finds, and share this post with your spring lovin' friends! 




Happy Easter,
Wendy
