Tis The Season....

Sorry I have been MIA!  I have been busy with photo 
shoots, home tours and decorating homes for Christmas!
Here are a few random shots of some of the work
I have been doing for others with some of my favorite
 flowers for the holiday season...Enjoy!

Amaryllis and greenery before the centerpiece was made

 Orchids arranged by my friend Pamela Lovett

The newell post with an assortment of greens, topped
with a pomegranate, holly and pretty ribbon

I draped this stairwell with noble fir on the outside(it is one of my favorite garlands) and then I always come back inside
with another garland to finish the look.  Here I used long leaf
pine.  It makes the garlands look to full and lush.

I adore white orchids every season.  Pamela
adorned this one with cute little ornaments.

Another favorite of mine is Belles of Ireland
They look beautiful anywhere!

Orchids for the buffet!

I don't like using the typical holiday flowers.  I think
it is fun to change things up and use the unexpected. FYI
this particular client has a frequent visitor that is allergic to poinsettias, so we didn't use any poinsettias.  Did you know that there are a lot of people who are allergic to poinsettias?  Yeah, me neither.  I'll think twice before I use them to decorate anywhere there will be a lot of people.  Can't wait to
share some more pictures but now I need to run out and do a little more shopping!   I still have gifts to buy!  I have decided to throw caution to the wind and buy with reckless abandon whatever I deem a perfect gift for those left on my list.  In other words, I'm not giving what was on "the list".  Sometimes
surprises are the best gift!  

 Meet Levi, my grand dog! He looks as tired as I do!...

 I am going to leave him in charge while I am gone. Hope he doesn't get into the eggnog!

Here's wishing you time to relax by the fire and time to 
remember what this season is really about!
Pin It!
