We're Having a FALL at The House on High Street!

Food & Home, The House on High Street

So fall is officially here, but I am chomping at the bit to see these leaves turn colors and feel the cooler, crisp air. (It’s still pretty warm in New Jersey!) This is the time I get into full homemaker mode. From decorating and pumpkin picking to baking with all of those delicious, Autumn ingredients. Regardless of the slow pace on its arrival, we are officially having a FALL at The House on High Street.

How to Decorate for FALL ~ Under $100

Food & Home, The House on High Street

The Fall season is drawing near. I love this time of year, for good reason. The air is crisp and fresh. The aroma of fall can’t be beat. Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Apple Pie, Cedar, etc. The colors are so vibrant. And, it’s hands-down the best time for outdoor photos!

Before moving into The House on High Street, I only had a townhouse or condo to decorate. It can get expensive decorating for any holiday, even in a small space. But, with a little extra time creating a decor plan and comparing prices on-line, before making any purchases, it can be done. In this post, I’m going to show you How to decorate for Fall ~under $100!

Artificial Flowers for Outdoor Flower Pots

There are a few reasons why I decided on artificial flowers for my outdoor flower pots at The House on High Street. I don’t exactly have a green thumb and watering plants is not on my priority list. Surprisingly, silk flowers can be a lot less expensive. And, not just in the long run! (They can last a few years as opposed to one season.) Last but not least, it took me only five minutes to put these pots together! 

Baby Berry's First Birthday ~ Hosting a Party at Home

Food & Home, The House on High Street

As you know, we recently celebrated Baby Berry’s first birthday at The House on High Street. It was such a blessing to host her Bio Family and witness all the love she has in her life! There were about 20 adults and my three nephews (the only children) in attendance. Even though it was a lot of work, I loved doing it! Not to mention, hosting a party at home is not as stressful as some may think. It’s less expensive and you have more control over the theme and ambiance. 

Thanksgiving Countdown

The House on High Street

So, you’re hosting Thanksgiving, this year? Congratulations! Or, shall we say, Good Luck? Last year was our first Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. I remember feeling excited and nervous. Thankfully, it was a success. I think the best advice I can give you is to plan ahead and pace yourself. I actually created my own Thanksgiving Countdown! So, here are some tips for you in preparing for one of the greatest holidays, ever. Have fun!

DIY Makeover ~ Vanity bench

The House on High Street

Everybody likes a good DIY Makeover story, right? Well, here you go…

I’m not sure why, but every time I turn around, my Mother-in-Law is dropping something off to my house. Evidently, Scott was a collector and cluttered up her house for twenty-some years. I think this is pay back time because almost every time she visits, we seem to collect more of his old stuff and some of hers, too. 

5 Things to Make Your Thanksgiving Holiday Extraordinary

The House on High Street

I don’t know about you, but on one hand, it seems like yesterday we were celebrating our First Thanksgiving at The House on High Street. It was a success, and Scott and I had a lot of fun doing it.  (I’m considering doing another Facebook LIVE series throughout the holiday season, so you’ll have to keep watch for that on Facebook.) As much as Pinterest, sometimes, overwhelms me- I remember finding some pretty extraordinary ideas on there. Such as these personalized place settings, that I made last year.

I can’t believe that we are coming up to our FIFTH year living at The House on High Street. It seems like yesterday that we were knocking down walls, filling in holes, replacing trim, and tackling dozens upon dozens of other renovation tasks. Now, I’d say we’re pretty comfortable and settled. (By no means finished! We still have a lot of exterior work that we’re saving up for.)
