A wedding is a wonderful time in life to celebrate love and commitment. Planning a wedding however, can be stressful so most of us need to find ways to decrease the budget and simplify where we can. Cotton is a natural element that can bring a special touch of warmth to your special day. There are multiple ways you can add cotton to your wedding from table centerpieces, altar arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and more. The great advantage is that it’s inexpensive and long-lasting, so you can make arrangements beforehand and be worry-free knowing that it will be ready and perfect...
Getting creative with cotton is a MUST! Walk into any home with cotton decor and your eyes will draw to the beautiful arrangement. The texture and color brings out the natural warmth to any home.

Each year a group of friends and I get together to celebrate the holidays with  games, laughter and of course, PLENTY of home baked food. One year I was hosting and received the best complement I could hear. “Your home is so warm and comfortable”. The Christmas tree was lit, the fireplace was blazing and of course there were wonderful aromas of home baked goodies. If only my home could be this inviting all year long! Then I found the perfect touch you can use which seems to capture the magic of Christmas all year long. Lighted Branches…Love Them! Simple...
Memories make up the story of our lives and it is these experiences and traditions that keep our families strong.   Years past, our family went to an outdoor flea market where one craftsman was selling a grapevine wreath. The wreath was decorated with  small wooden gingerbread men we personalized with each child’s name. As our family grew, we added more gingerbread men to our wreath. Each winter we hang this wreath that holds the tradition and memories of our family.   At Burlap Basement, we want to inspire our customers with simple, fun, creative decor that can tell your story for years to come....
Mom’s are awesome and I sure got a good one!  Mine taught me to find conversation pieces for your home. This is why I like dough bowls. They have a story! In Colonial America, dough bowls provided a snug, warm place for bread to rise prior to baking. These bowls were handed down through a family, passing along memories and experiences that made a kitchen the heart of the home. Dough Bowls (also called a trencher) are a wonderful way to add flair to your spaces. They come in all shapes and sizes. Similar to wreaths, you can reuse, find...
Each year around Thanksgiving, our family will go to a nearby sanctuary lake to view the swans which are migrating south.

Utilizing the simplicity of nature can brighten any space and treasuring our environment is sharing life in the most beautiful way! Challenging ourselves to not only view nature but to try to save our environment is a small step we can take each day. Carry an eco-friendly...
