Simply Decking My Halls

We went for simplicity for our decorations this year. And I love gold, so I went to excess there. Gold tablecloth, placemats, chargers, votives, vases, and ribbon! I love seeing the wreath hanging inside our house...i get much more enjoyment than seeing one on our front door. We did do garland around the front, but focused more on the inside.

 Love these chocolate roses and rose hips~

And our tree with just white lights in our whiskey barrel again. We chose our front window and moved some furniture this time. I love moving things around! 

Mini wreaths on the armoire with jingle bells. 

Gold garland and a shooting star hydrangea in our bedroom!

Simply Fraser Garland and Paperwhites!

Parker wishes you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!


Mrs. Holiday Punch

I made this Mrs. Holiday champagne punch for our neighborhood progressive dinner. It was a hit and very festive! We omitted the St. Germain, as we can't get it in Alabama - but it was still great! I will buy some the next time we go to Georgia though! I've heard its amazing!

A concoction of champagne, pom juice, and a few other ingredients. But the pretty part was the ice ring made in a bundt pan. Make sure you allow plenty of time for the ice ring to freeze..otherwise all else is a breeze! And the edible glitter or sprinkles is key...It makes it extra festive!!!

Merry Christmas!!!


Its Beginning to Look (and Feel) like Christmas

I don't want to bore you all with the details of my holiday work, so I've created a separate blog/portfolio to keep all of that in one place. If you are interested in holiday decor, check out my Holiday Homes Blog.

Here's a sampling:

Happy Holidays!


Fun Finds - Vessels

Last week, I was looking for a basket to put a 3' Christmas tree in for a client. I went to Garden Ridge. And of course I had to look at everything else as well. I loved these fun rattan wrapped vases and hurricanes. And I'm sorry I didn't write down prices, but I'm sure everything is under $12. Great for a beach house or porch.

And I loved these gold rimmed handle holders. 
It would be fun to mix shapes and sizes and mix flowers and candles. 

Happy Arranging!


Thanksgiving (Before its Forgotten)

Here are some pictures of some flowers that I did for a client's Thanksgiving.

And now my mother's Thankgiving! Two tables - 25 people!
