Head to your local grocery store or pumpkin patch and choose four pumpkins of varying sizes.

Next, wipe off the pumpkins with a damp paper towel. Once dry, paint the two larger pumpkins black and one of the medium pumpkins white. (They may need several coats of paint.)

For the pearly web pumpkin, use the medium pearl stickers to create the vertical lines of the web.

The small pearl stickers are perfect for the horizontal arches. To finish this look, use tacky glue to adhere the spider decoration.

For the other large black pumpkin, dot purple puff paint to create a swirled pattern. Or, personalize it by painting your own design!

Incorporate the different colors of your large pumpkins using the designs on the medium two. Keep one of them a natural orange, with black circles sponged on it. Then sponge the purple puff paint onto the white pumpkin. Alternate the pumpkin stems with purple and black paint to help tie all four pumpkins together.

The Fall 2014 home décor and fashion trends have been revealed..and we’re in love!

One of the latest fashion trends on the runway is inspired by the 1960s and mod design. Translate this look into home décor using sleek lines, distressed leathers and button-tufting. This décor style encompasses all things retro-chic.

 

You know what other home décor trend is all the rage this autumn? High glamour! (Though, we don’t think this timeless look will ever go out of style.) This provides a great opportunity to be bold with your design—the more plush and opulent your décor is, the more glamorous your home will be. Use metallic and crystal accessories to complete the look. Think champagne wishes and caviar dreams!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month! Did you know that the chance of a woman having breast cancer is about 1 in 8? And, the chance of dying from the disease is about 1 in 36?

Fortunately, cancer research and better treatment options are helping to turn these stats around. Havertys is doing its part to help by raising funds via bake sales, raffles, participating in MSABC walks and with the Havertys Hope Tree.

If you’re new to the Havertys family, you might be wondering what the Hope Tree is. Simply put, it’s a way for our customers to show their support. Visit any one of our stores and you will find a Christmas-like tree decorated with all sorts of pink ornaments. Purchase a pink, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer ribbon card (all funds are donated to American Cancer Society,) write a special message on it and then place it on the tree. Voilà! You’ve just helped save lives.

We have raised more than $350,000 in last five years, but we didn’t do it alone. Will you join us in the fight against breast cancer? Here’s how you can help:

  • Donate in-store via the Havertys Hope Tree or on our Havertys Team page
  • Sign up for a walk near you
  • And, encourage your friends and family to get involved

Rustic isn’t just for the boys anymore. A new, refined rustic has arrived. And it’s so chic and so you! Our Avondale dining room is a grand display of distressed wood and linen blend fabric that work together to create a relaxed, yet refined retreat. A study in refined sophistication, the Avondale adds instant sophistication to your dining room. It’s the perfect complement to a view of the wooded outdoors…but you’re not out of the woods yet. You must have all your leafy greens – you’ll need the ones for your taste palette and the ones for your color palette :) . Incorporate plush greenery into the space with some no-fuss faux botanicals. We’ve got those greens covered, but you’re on your own with the others. Anchor the look with a rug in warm, neutral tones. Then add accessories with copper and chrome finishes. Voila!
