Our Halloween Decorations with Christmas Tree Shops!


This post is created in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, a brand I love. All opinions are my own.
A peek at our Halloween home decor, including neutral halloween mantel, front porch, outdoor halloween decorations, and fall entryway.

Happy Fall Y'all!
Whose ready for the spookiest time of the year?
I must admit, this is my first year decorating for Halloween. I just couldn't pass up all of the awesome decor at our local Christmas Tree Shops! Halloween is also our 3 year old's favorite holiday, so of course he was thrilled to see the new spooky-scapes on our mantel and front porch.



Have you ever shopped at a Christmas Tree Shops or andThat! store? They are like a treasure trove of affordable goodies! They always have an amazing assortment of seasonal decor, specialty foods, household and beauty products, furniture, and SO much more! Take a peek at some of the fabulous Halloween decor I spotted in-store...








After browsing through endless aisles of ghoulish goodies, I felt inspired to create a black/white themed mantel and a more traditional orange themed front porch.



I loved the antique feel of this light-up Poison sign, how spooky are those glowing skull eyes?! 





From posing skeletons to pumpkin luminaries, Christmas Tree Shops definitely has the coolest selection of candle holders for Halloween! I just couldn't pass up the creepy spider and skeleton; I added glittery black tea lights inside of each, they flicker beautifully! Glass poison bottles, and stacks of antique books add to the spooky feel. For added height, 2 wrought iron holders with LED candles balance out the mantel.



This fun Halloween bunting is the perfect touch!


To add interest at the base of the fireplace, I hung a glittery BOO sign from the ladder, tucked a spider pillow into the basket and leaned a cinnamon broomstick against the hearth- it makes the entire room smell delicious!



And because it wouldn't be Halloween without a little DIY, I cut these fun bats out of construction paper and placed them in staggering flight above the mantel.
I think it turned out Boo-tiful ;) how about you?


Our front porch is ready for trick-or-treaters thanks to a lush pumpkin wreath, Hello Pumpkin welcome mat, the cutest boo pillow and pumpkin patch sign. I'm loving the pop of traditional orange color in this outdoor space!



Of course, the front of our halloween home wouldn't be complete without this fun hocus pocus inspired stake sign!



This same decor can also transition into the entryway! I love versatile pieces!


I hope you enjoyed this spooky house tour of our Halloween home decor. Be sure to check out Christmas Tree Shops andThat! for more fun seasonal finds, and share this post with your halloween loving friends!

Farmhouse Fall Tablescape!


It's only a few short weeks until the official start of Fall, and I'm already in full swing decorating our home for harvest season! 



With the help of my friends over at Christmas Tree Shops andThat! I set out to give our dining room a fall makeover. If you've never visited Christmas Tree Shops, you're truly missing out! They always have an amazing selection of affordable and festive home decor, and lots more! I especially love to visit during the fall season when they offer a delightful array of colorful pumpkins and beautiful harvest themed decorations.

I mean seriously.. give me ALL. THE PUMPKINS. 😍


I noticed a few main harvest decor themes while shopping at Christmas Tree Shops - neutral farmhouse, teal, blush, black and white, and traditional. While all of the collections were beautiful, it should come as no surprise to my followers that I decided on a neutral farmhouse theme for our fall dining room!
After having way too much fun filling my cart with fall goodies, I headed home and started decorating with all of my beautiful new finds. 




I literally gasped when I spied this gorgeous wooden lantern on the shelf! It includes 3 battery operated candles, festive fall greenery with pumpkins, and a beautiful driftwood finish. I knew this beauty would make the perfect centerpiece for our neutral fall farmhouse themed table.
(bonus: it is even more STUNNING lit up at night!) 




On the focal wall in our dining room, I added this lovely fall wreath, matching arrangement, darling little white ceramic pumpkins, and this adorable wood and tin pumpkin sign! 




These blue and white pumpkin dinner plates with matching napkins create the perfect table setting, and I bet you would never guess they are melamine; three cheers for kid-proof plates! 

I also picked up these beautiful white goblets, they have wonderful texture and weight, and look just like vintage milk glass - total score!









I'm so happy with how our neutral fall farmhouse dining room turned out and can't wait to entertain guests in this festive space this harvest season.

Be sure to head over to my instagram HERE to shop along with me at Christmas Tree Shops in my stories! and Thank you so much to Christmas Tree Shops for always having the best selection and affordable finds!

Shark Themed Room Refresh feat Christmas Tree Shops andThat! new Kids Collection!


This post is in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat! As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support BentleyBlonde! 

Somehow our sweet baby boy, Colton, has turned into a big, rambunctious 4 year old. Who allowed this to happen?! My mama heart is sad, but also so excited for all of the new adventures that he will be able to enjoy now that he's older. We wanted to start off by giving his nursery a "big boy room refresh", and so I was super excited to find out that Christmas Tree Shops andThat! has a new collection of kid's decor in store this July! Have you ever been to a Christmas Tree Shops andThat! store? Let me tell you, it's like eye candy for home decor lovers like me! 
From filling my kid's Easter baskets and stockings, to decking out their bedrooms; I always know Christmas Tree Shops has this mama covered when it comes to a fun variety, and amazing prices!
If you've never visited a Christmas Tree Shops andThat! store, than consider this your own personal tour with your lovely shopping partner - me ;) 


I had a great time in the store shopping their new Kids Collection, and Colton was extra excited to see that the collection includes a ton of awesome shark themed items (his favorite!)
 They also had the cutest mermaid decor, comfy chairs, adorable velvet hangers, canvas teepee tents, storage, bedding, rugs, dinnerware, and accessories! Seriously, so many cute items at amazing prices!









We ended up picking up these awesome shark items to decorate Colton's room, and even some new shark rain boots and umbrella for these rainy summer days!



Colton absolutely loves his new shark themed room, complete with shark bedding, pillows, wall decor, storage and the plushest rug ever! and can you believe this adorable room refresh was under $200?!








Of course we couldn't end our day without some good ol' puddle jumpin in our new rain boots! Sharktastic!

Well guys, I hope you enjoyed shopping the awesome new kids collection at Christmas Tree Shops andThat! You can watch video from my shopping spree in my Instagram stories highlight. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!
