Sipping Cups of Inspiration Served One Cup at A Time
What to do when you have a narrow table? Martha Clyatt makes a beautiful statement with a home sweet home touch. One personal statement: When we visit Martha and Gordon’s mountain home, she always adds natural touches to mantels, tables and counters. Those items from nature’s bounty add charm to each season and it feels warm and homey!
Fall brings out a lot of expressions, as my friend, Sarolyn Spivey displays at her country home and with a cowgirl’s heart, she loves to add the adorable signs and displays. Look at her country cuteness with all the charming additions she has added to her home.
Fall Decor on Display on Decor Haven continues:
Everyone who has given me permission to post their lovely decorations inspired me to get it in gear and begin my fall decorations before it is winter. I concentrated in a few areas and some are not complete but I thought I would share my progress. I will add more as I complete some of the WIP tasks.
Note from Arline Miller, blogger of Sipping Cups of Inspiration will like to thank all of the home decorators who have inspired us to get our creative juices flowing. I will add more as I complete the outstanding projects.
More Colorful Decor and this one comes from my sister Juanelle Fussell who was my side kick when I owned a decorating company. She still has the touch. Enjoy her dining room table display:
MORE FALL DECOR FOLLOWS:
On Facebook I suggested everyone to post their Fall Decor and I am pleased to see our friends showing out with their different and unique color combos and decors. One extraordinary example is the soft touch of Bonnie Thomas whose garden photos make me feel I am in Alice In Wonderland’s gardens and she has placed a demure but her softened decor makes a huge and delightful statement. Who says Fall has to be brilliant colors? You may beg to differ after seeing her Fall Decor so enjoy!
Fall is here and soon Halloween and Thanksgiving will follow. I love sharing what my friends and acquaintances create. One thing that always stands out to me is carrying out a theme throughout the home and yards. One of the first ones and you will delightfully see the Sunflower/Pumpkin theme in Sandra Minix Holton’s home where she enjoys her husband’s landscaping/gardening skills. Please enjoy the fall beauty:
I look for Sandy to share her Holiday Decorations later and we know we are going to love it. I am hoping others will share their creativity.
Time has passed so quickly and I have been busy with Reinvention Queen, but when I saw Sherry Ducatte beautiful mirror/table Independence Day decor, I had to post it. If you have some great decor items to add for this 4th of July holiday, please send to me. Thanks Sherry for always getting us in the spirit.
The Easter Bunny is front and center staged at Cindy and Brian McNeill’s home. It is absolutely charming with focus on their collection of bunnies and eggs. Please enjoy this impeccable display and the most incredible point is she decorates her home each year. How delightful and the Decor Haven extents our gratitude to allow us to share the creativity, color, and exquisite displays of Easter.
Cindy and Brian McNeill’s home hopping with colors and beautiful ambiance:
With a great big Kudos for an outstanding Easter Bunny decorum, the tour at the McNeills home and garden has been a venture into fantasy land. Thanks, Cindy and Brian for giving us great innovation.
With Thanksgiving approaching, our thoughts turn to our Christmas decor. We are blessed to have Kathy Garland who decorates with style give us an early season preview of her lovely home. Her mini sized Aussie, Slate who has his own following is a happy doggie with all of this seasonal beauty surrounding their home and garden. Thanks Kathy for sharing your home with us:
Blogger’s Note: I wanted to display all of her photos for a tip on creative decorating. There are two ways to carry out your decor 1) Pick out a theme as Kathy has done with the vintage truck and red/black plaid and implement these items throughout your home or a room. 2) Blend several themes but with at least two color choices unless going to a eclipse decor blending in all colors to go for a total impact without a specific theme.
Looking for ideas for the Holidays? Continue to look at the themes from last year as we have a great display collection of homes.
I love this idea for a wall or entrance decor for the Christmas Holiday, do you?

Enjoy her photos and you may get some great ideas for your home as well. Thanks for allowing us to visit your lovely home Pam! Happy Fall.
DECOR CAN BE A COMPOSITE OF ORGANIZATION
Great idea for displaying and/or hanging cast iron pans is one we adapted to our kitchen. This cleared up so much cabinet space and makes it easier to get them without straining to pick them up. We love the look and it only took a trip to Lowes to get the pipe fittings and the white beadboard. You can certainly go natural or use whatever background you choose.
CHRISTMAS SEASON DECOR TIPS 2019
Today, we start the Christmas Decoration Ideas. I will post the ideas that I see from all sources. I usually wait until after Thanksgiving, which we will be celebrating here at our home before decorating for Christmas, but some people might like to prepare in advance. I hope you enjoy Inspirational Sips of Christmas Decors. I thought I would start with our Cardinal/Bird House Christmas tree from 2018.
Fall is in the Air and many of my friends are having fun decorating both inside and outside and are happy to share their ideas with my readers.
Fall/Autumn/Halloween are all reasons to decorate by adding accessories and colorful displays. I have friends who get into the decorating seasonally and it is reflected in their beautiful homes. Please check out Sandra Minix Holton lovely mantle and dining room festive and warm, Kathy Garland’s patio and home, Sherry Ducatte’s home, then Karen Grantham’s displays, and last but certainly not least Betty Burkhalter’s home. Janie Luke-Smith Burke adds to the festivities with her photo.

Karen Grantham shared her Welcome to Autumn theme in her home. Let’s take a peek as I feel a touch of Autumn/Fall in the air. It is the touches which bring the season in doors as well as in our yards.
Note from Arline Miller, blogger: It is my pleasure to share the accessorizing for Seasons on the blog. I love home owners who decorate for seasons/holidays so as I find great ideas, I will share them with my readers. A big thanks to Karen Grantham and Kudos to Betty Burkhalter who provides the fall theme below.
Fall Season is Splendidly Decorated at Betty Burkhalter’s home
Fall Season Decor Theme by guest Betty Burkhalter
Sometimes, we encounter great friends and when those friends display a talent for seasonal decor, it is nice to see what they are up to when the season changes. My dear friend, Betty Burkhalter has spruced up her lovely home for fall with splashes of the colors we associate with the nice breezes, the collage of leaves, and pumpkins galore. I thought I would share her photos of fall splendor. Enjoy the photos and her decorating talent:
Thank you Betty and Dan Burkhalter for allowing us a peep into your lovely home and sharing your talent of creating and maintaining a season theme throughout with your special touch. Welcoming everyone to Fall.
What a cute trick (or treat) idea for those who have tomato cages left over from our gardens. Thanks One Little Project for this clever idea.
This is my new site page called Decor Haven where I will share some tips on decorating, accessorizing, and staging a home without breaking the bank. Sometimes, I will use my home as a stage for this tips and other times I will pull other ideas to put a little color and bling in your home. This week I am including the recent updates to our home. They certainly were not high dollar additions but they add some brightness to our home.
Staging Outside with Colors April 2019 deck project. Making our multi level decks come alive for the rest of Spring and Summer. My emphasis is adding color to the neutral colors while maintaining a natural inviting setting for the beauty of the trees and flower beds for a wonderful backdrop. It is the little additions can make the scene enticing.
Sometimes it can be a small change, a little splash of color and coordination that gives an uplifting environment. Greg and I bought new washcloths yesterday and he made a run to his second home Lowes and FaceTime me and we picked out an air plant for our Master Bath. I used two bronze planters as a wash cloth holder integrated colors. On the breakfast nook table an innovative planter with stand containing beautiful succulent that leaves plenty of room for plates and glasses but is dramatic with the decorative wall panel. All of these changes were not expensive but made a brighter world. I also bring a transfer of color from BR to bath by taking the teal used in BR into Bathroom. The decorator in me remains so hopefully you like these little tips.
