OH HELLO, CHRISTMAS.....



"They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is going to spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly"

There's Christmas music on the radio and Christmas lights popping on when the sun goes down and I've been decorating like mad for clients...


This year its all about the ribbon.
This gorgeous gray silk and the white filigree ribbon

 and this awesome ribbon that looks like birch bark...



and the wide silver embroidered ribbon that is a statement in itself...

was the inspiration for Vicki's house.




This year we added some outdoor touches



Pat's tree is always red and white... and so I was delighted to find this Merry Christmas ribbon 
to top her tree


fun fact:  the little bear on the tricycle ornament was one that I made for her 15 years ago...
it made me smile to see it was still among the ornaments for her tree! 


Betty's tree changes every year.  Each year we pick a new ribbon and let it dictate the style for the tree.
This year it was plaid all the way - with berries on top!


The centerpiece changes each year too - this year we were inspired by deep red poinsettias and fragrant evergreen and eucalyptus.  The result was stunning and came together quickly with the greens in oasis surrounding the potted poinsettia.


Another floral creation for Betty - this time in silk, but still so pretty!



 I snapped this before I realized we hadn't removed the tag from this fresh pine wreath.  We added more fresh greens to the poinsettia basket.

At Kathleen's house it was all about the ribbons....
This tree looks fabulous even before the ornaments are added!


 A tall vase with pine cones and berries sits nearby.
More cute ribbon on the mantle...

 and then two quick poinsettia centerpiece arrangements -
 one surrounded by fragrant evergreens...

and one surrounded by glittering giant pine cones and shiny ornaments...

with a few of the leftover greens in a white pitcher and a sweet red velvet bow...


 So, that's what has been occupying my time.
Now to start on my house...
Where do I begin????
