Zombie Gifts and Home Decorating Ideas

This year I thought I would decorate my husbands man cave with a few zombie products and also pick up some walking dead and Daryl DixonT-shirts. I think it would be fun to invite a few fans over to watch the premiere show for the 2015 season by hosting a walking dead party.

Personally I do not think we need to go “all out” for this party but do think some throw pillows for sofa, blanket throw, posters, coffee mugs and serving plates and bowls for dips would be perfect for a zombie fall out shelter/man cave.  Plus I really like the cardboard life-size cutout of Daryl Dixon to be set up in the room, I think having him in the room will appreciated by all.  
This blog post features two Walking Dead sets that I created at polyvore. These sets will inspire you to decorate your home with a zombie theme and they also feature today’s hot selling T-shirts. All are must haves for a Walking Dead premier house party.

Walking Dead Daryl Dixon Gifts by sgolis featuring autumn home decor
I am a walking dead fan and so is my husband. We missed the first three season but then by chance we saw the repeats on AMC and were addicted to the show. How about you? Are you a walking dead fan? If you like the zombie look and would like to create a zombie space in your home then here are few zazzle.com products that I found that are my favorites.  I hope this zombie merchandise inspires you to decorate for the Walking Dead upcoming season.  

So get the party started by featuring past seasons Walking Dead episodes in the background.  A great way to build up anticipation for the up and coming episode.  Another fun party activity is to invite your zombie guest to play the Walking dead board game that will test their knowledge of the show.  This trivia board game is a lot of fun, in fact event the kids enjoy it.  Then get a life size poster of Daryl Dixon and photograph your zombie party guests next to him. We have had both men and women get all dreamy eyed over this poster

Now lets get busy and decorate your home for zombie themed party.  

Decorate your walls with zombies and this will create walking dead ambiance.

Fresh Herb Wreath How to and Decor Ideas

It is really cold out today and I am missing my herb garden. I have a few herb plants on a southern windowsill but my indoor garden does not compare to my outdoor garden in the summer. So today I thought if I cannot work outdoors in the garden I am going to make a fresh herb wreath for my kitchen and the aroma from the leaves will be nice.

For this wreath I needed to buy bunches of herbs from the farmers market. I was able to find and buy rosemary, thyme and sage. These herb bunches were not inexpensive so I used a bent twig wreath that I had instead of buying one from hobby lobby.
I used 6 eight inch herb stems that were gathered together, I worked the bunch of herbs in-between the bent twig wreath and found I did not need any craft wire to hold them in place.
When all the herbs were attached to the wreath I sprayed then with water to help the herbs to stay fresh. Going forward I will mist the herbs on the wreath daily and they should keep for several weeks. Know that this is an easy craft with big results because the fragrance of the herbs really makes the kitchen have a nice scent. 

Here is a Youtube video that will show you how to make fresh lavender wreath.  Wonderfully fragrant for kitchen, bedroom or entrance to your home.

Red and Black Valentine's Day Decorating Ideas

Today I am inspired to decorate my bedroom for Valentine's Day because hubby and I will be staying home this year and I would like to create a red colour theme with plenty of hearts, love sayings for the perfect little love nest for the two of us.

So I headed over to my zazzle gallery and created some modern red locking hearts with black background designs; throw pillow, candy tins, lamps, blanket throw, T-shirt for me and for the wall so heart-shaped decals with cute classic Valentine's day sayings.

 I know it is corny but this stuff makes me smile and since hubby and I have been working and have opposite hours I am thinking to stay home on Valentines Day would be a nice way to reconnect and a bedroom that is decorated with a "love to love you" or "I love you more" theme would be a good way to celebrate  Valentine's Day.

So I designed a variety of pillows sizes so I could pile them on the bed, and then I added home accessories to pop up the room and add to the ambience.  

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?

Here is a bedroom set that created to show my clients how to decorate for Valentines' Day.  This set will hopefully inspire your to decorate.
