November 9, 2017

Gordmans teamed up with our fave bloggers for their home décor hauls. We love that they all have such a different eye for style, and hope they inspire your home.

If you’ve got home-styling chops you want to show off, keep reading for a chance to win a Gordmans gift card!

 

Luxe for less

Vlogger Kayla Pritchard chose ‘luxe for less’ pieces to transition her home perfectly, from a different take on a traditional vase to this unique smokey glass pumpkin. Try out her tips for a similar look to your home.

 

Getting cozy

Youtuber Candice of Fancy That with Candice shared her two-part home haul for the holidays. Take her cue and get cozy with soft sweater slipper booties for lounging around the house, or chasing after her boys – who no doubt keep her on her (now toasty) toes.

Vintage and eclectic

Add a few choice quirky, eclectic pieces to your décor, like Leah of Keep Calm And Blush On did with this wavy cut marble tray with copper hardware. Its thick rope handles contrast the slick marble and give it subtle character, which she’ll use as a catchall or to display seasonal décor.

Harvest home

Blogger Shauna of Trying to Stay Calm was all about the harvest theme for a festive fall home. She stocked up in-store for decorating and gifting goodies for her family and friends. Keep a few pieces for each season handy, and you’ll always be ready for gifts and guests.

Halloween Decor Tricks
That are Too Cute to Spook

October 11, 2017

It’s the season of frights, but scary décor isn’t for everyone. Young kids may find creepy, horror-inspired decorations far from festive as they trek door to door on trick-or-treat night. So, remember to reserve the truly scary stuff for grownup parties or out-of-the-way spaces, and keep cheery décor in sight for the kiddos. After all, the objective is to welcome trick or treaters to your door and not scare them away, right?

Read on for a few kid-friendly décor ideas to inspire Halloween smiles.

 

 

Who’s There?

Step up your Halloween game and welcome trick or treaters and houseguests with a cute doormat. It’s a unexpected, fun addition to your front door, back door or any high-traffic entryway that can help keep your floors clean. Fun and functional? Now that’s a treat!

 

How Sweet!

Décor that does double duty? Nothing scary about that. Deliver soft glows to your front porch or entryway by adding flameless candles to metal pumpkins for a bewitching Halloween scene. Then, on trick-or-treat night, swap out the candles with goodies and you’ve got handy candy dishes for when neighborhood ghosts and goblins come calling.

 

Easy Does It!

With toddlers and pets around the house, breakable Halloween décor finds may not be the best options. No worries. Soft, plush options are readily available to show your Halloween spirit. If they take a tumble, they won’t break. They typically have friendlier appearances too, so there’s little chance of scaring.

 

Hang On!   

Greet young, door-to-door revelers by hanging fun décor on your front door. Pieces with jack-o-lanterns and black cats are great options and wreaths with fall’s finest like leaves, feathers and corn also add a seasonal touch without adding scares. Use your best discretion on Halloween night and your little guests will leave your doorstep with smiles.

 

By The Yard!

Short on time? Decorating your outdoor space with yard stakes is super easy – and sure to get noticed. Pick your places, then grab your stakes and push them into the ground. They’re easily changed, too. Just pull them up, relocate and push. As decorating goes, it doesn’t get much quicker. Note: be sure to place your stakes in spaces that won’t trip or cause accidents for your trick or treaters.

Arrange

Arrange the sticks in some sort of container. You could use a vase, bucket, or a glass pitcher. Use the glue gun to carefully glue the hearts onto the sticks. We would suggest you arrange the sticks how you want them in the container and then glue the hearts on based on how the the sticks lay naturally. You can glue as many hearts or as little hearts as you want, it’s YOUR creation! You could also do different size hearts or write cute sayings on each heart.

Embellish

Use embellishments to add your own personal style.  You could add glitter or buttons to the hearts.  You know, crafty things like that.  We added a little black and white bakers twine to give the red mason jar a little extra something.
