Take a Cue from the Leaves

Find out “what’s in” – in time for your Fall planning and decorating. It’s looking to be another season of warmth, thanks and giving. This Fall, we are loving warm colors, like butternut squash, pumpkin, and blue hues, like the skies. We are interested in using what we have and adding to it. Think velvet, coffee beans, and warm candles. Think nature and take your cues from it. Think LTD 7 for all of your accessories and décor needs…a little or a lot.

Freshen Up the Front Door

Most of us love to decorate the front door and we love a theme that takes us right into Thanksgiving. To give your door and porch a colorful pick-me-up, surround your door with inexpensive cabbage plants, mums, greenery and pumpkins. Saturate the porch with shades of orange, green, and white. Stack a pumpkin topiary with white pumpkins and greenery that will last all the way until December. These looks below give the house a cheery curb appeal.

Warm Up to New Hues: Think Bright Colors!

Don’t limit bright colors to spring and summer; Fall’s hues can be playful too — rely on Mother Nature’s shifting shades to help you pick your palette. Try a splash of pumpkin orange, mellowed gourd green or the saturated blue evident in fall’s clear skies. No need to swap out (or repaint) your furniture for the season, just work in a few colorful accessories to get the look. Take a cue from nature and give an open space a snug, welcoming feel by swapping out pillows in lightweight summer fabrics, like linen and cotton, for luxurious velvet ones in rich, fall shades.

Add Fresh Flowers and Fall Leaves

Nothing brightens up your home for the season like vases filled with fall flowers and foliage. Sunflowers are great choices because they’ll remain beautiful for quite some time. The trick to keeping blooms fresh is to remove all leaves below the water line and change out the water every few days. I love the look of the scarlet maple leaves towering in the corner, with the velvet pillows on the couch. Hints of burnished gold in the pillows, lamp and chair warm up this corner.

Put Memories on Display

With the upcoming arrival of friends and family for the holidays, fall is the perfect time to root through boxes of old family photos, pop them in a frame and create a gallery wall so everyone can enjoy a sentimental stroll down memory lane.  You can spray paint inexpensive frames for a seasonal display.

Turn an Empty Frame in to a Menu Board

Another idea for an inexpensive frame or one you have laying around is a menu board. With just a few supplies from the hardware and craft stores, you can upcycle an unused frame into an elegant chalkboard to display wherever holiday guests gather. Use your finished chalkboard to display a Thanksgiving or holiday dinner menu or just to jot down notes to family. You can revert back to the original frame after the season is over.

Incorporate Candles

Fill lanterns or tall glass hurricanes with pillar candles surrounded by coffee beans, acorns or candy corn to easily create a charming display for your entryway or front porch, foyer, or coffee table. Remember to bring in those bright colors we discussed with our pillows.If you’ve never tried our battery operated moving flame candles, you must try them this season. You will fall in love with the timer feature as well as the realistic movement of the flame.

It’s Autumn. Time to warm up our homes and our décor. LTD 7 is full of pillows, candles and accessories to help you do the job. Stop in soon, even if just to see enjoy the décor we have on display. We would love to see you at one or both of our locations. Please share your displays and décor with us on our app!  We would love to see your creativity in action.

Go Back to School!

The Greatest thing in Life is to keep your mind young……Henry Ford
datauri-fileIt’s that time of year again! Leaves are falling from the trees, football is being played and the rain feels cooler. Hot apple cider is on our minds and chilly hands beg to be warmed. Bells ring through the air as kids and grownups alike return to school.

Back to school time can be exciting and chaotic; luckily, LTD 7 is on hand with a myriad of classes on a variety of topics. As the nights get cooler and it gets dark earlier, why not consider enjoying an hour or two of “Me Time,” and gain some “wisdom” from our great vendors who share their time and expertise with us in the many classes offered at LTD 7.

I know it is really hard to plan “Me Time.” I am the absolute worst at it! The gurus of time management tell us to calendar in our “Me Time,” just like we would a dentist appointment. LTD 7 makes that easy to do by offering reservations for our classes. We hope these events spark your interest and encourage you to stretch your wings and fly.

Education is priceless. Have you heard the saying?

I personally love not only the knowledge gained in our classes, but also and just as much, I love the fellowship in LTD 7’S classes. We have so much fun! I can’t imagine what could be better…taking a class, stretching our minds and having a blast at the same time as we learn a new craft or technique!

Let’s all go back to school! Simply email, call us or drop in to LTD 7 and say, “I want to learn!” Let your passions and your curiosity soar. Please consider signing up for a class or two or three. Bring a friend. Tell them you are still learning and would love to share an hour or two in their company and the company of like-minded folks.

Let your creativity bloom.

And, please, if there is a class you might want to take, please let us know. We love our friends and customers input as we grow and learn. We are always looking for ways to make LTD 7 awesome so if YOU have any ideas, please share them with us.
