Christmas Decorating Count Down

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. I spent the entire day with my family eating too much, watching football teams I don’t really care about and catching up on Pinterest. Friday and Saturday were spent scouring for vintage finds and shopping down High Street.

My relaxing weekend however was quickly over since today starts the rush for Holiday decorating. With the majority of clients wishing to have everything up the week after Thanksgiving, our week will be busy with wreaths, garland and lights. A part of our decorating tools is a large binder of inspirational holiday images we have collected over the years. Here is a few to get you inspired:

I like the use of a non-traditional color and hanging the greens vertically compared to swagging.

Don’t forget to decorating your containers for the holidays. Keeping the soil from your fall plantings allows you to add  cut greens and ornamental twigs, while your topiary forms add height.

Wreaths can also be used inside, but will not live as long.

You can also add greens to your boxwood containers (however can be done better than the image above).
I like how the garland is hung around the whole entrance, not just the door to give maximum impact.
