It’s stressful trying to be Martha Stewart. Like Ms. Martha I love decorating. With it being September, not only am I stoked for pumpkin spice…everything, I am also stoked to decorate my house for the fall. I have a tote full of pumpkins, leaves, even an owl. If you want to see a video of me scaring Liam with the owl, you have to go to my YouTube channel.
While I love decorating, I don’t love being stressed out about it. Here are my helpful hints to stress free decorating.
1. Don’t channel your inner Martha Stewart.
Your house doesn’t have to look like hers, in fact you don’t want it to. Your house should reflect you and your family. Now that I have the boys, I decor with them in mind. All my beautiful glass fixings will just stay tucked away until the boys are bigger.
2. Don’t use everything you got.
Just pick and choose a few things to display each year. Don’t feel like you have to use everything in your tote. This way each year is exciting because you get to enjoy something you didn’t last year. If a single pumpkin on your counter does the trick, alright! Mission accomplished!
3. If it doesn’t bring you joy, don’t do it.
You do not have to decorate, period. If it doesn’t bring you joy don’t waste your time doing it. Just go to Starbucks and enjoy a pumpkin spice latte.
