We are well into December and I just started to pull out my own Christmas decorations. No pictures of my home quite yet. I’ll save that for a later post!
A few days ago, I took this arrangement to a customer’s home. It will be placed on her dresser of her GORGEOUS bedroom for Christmas and well into the winter she said. (I wish I had a picture for you of her bedroom…oh my! Is it ever a room to envy!)
The nice thing about this arrangement is the colors work well with her dark khaki walls. The white just sort of POPS as we in the decorator field like to say. The glitzy bronze stems and the winter white berries will look perfect long after this customer’s Christmas tree comes down.
I took this little arrangement with a reindeer moss tree for Becky to try on her entry table.
She loved it. She and her young family are in a wonderful new home.
Decorating this new house will be an ongoing project for some time to come.
I just ran a soft, very real looking garland down the center of her table, plopped the arrangement down, tucked a few berries in and it was almost complete.
Oh! One more thing. I suggested some mercury glass votives nestled in for some shine and Viola! Her table is good for now.
There is a limey green scarf with beads for an added dimension I was glad I had brought along.
There were oodles and oodles of banisters for garland to enhance. Red scarves at the bottom in the entrance were the finishing touches.
This is a shot looking up in her entry where we placed more garlands and a wreath. Way up here were many more banisters to dress.
Sorry the picture is blurry, but double amaryllis worked well to frame the mantle. There is a wreath with lights and a big red bow, but we needed someone to place a nail in the rock wall.
Another garland, some evergreen picks with eucalyptus leaves and many more berry clusters was all that was needed to turn her mantle into a holiday look.
Does anyone (except Martha) have a REAL arrangement such as this?
Not where I live…
My customers will get many miles out of a simple container of mixed greens, berries, pods and ornaments.
No shedding here! An added perk!
Real or Faux?
I’ll let you take a guess. ;)
For reasons unknown, silk flowers get a bad rap from some people.
There is definitely a place for them.
Real or Faux?
Who really cares with the quality available today!
Thanks for stopping by 47th Street.
