Outdoor Decorations

Filed under: Decorating,Fall,Flowers,Grasses,Winter — Judy @ 2:32 pm

One of the fun things that we get to do is to decorate for the season. As you saw in the last post, we often get an early snow before Thanksgiving which essentially kills off the less hardy flowers in the containers. Planning ahead to put in a few faux flower or colorful leaf stems really ups the staying power of the container and we can get through until it is time to decorate for Christmas.

Once Thanksgiving has come and gone, we can pull out the plant carcasses and clean up the containers. Then out come the garlands and the wreaths and the bows and the lights and ALL.THE.SPARKLY.THINGS!



Do you go all out with seasonal decorating?

Lime green

Filed under: Decorating,Winter — Judy @ 10:40 pm

I’ve had a few holiday decorating projects to do for clients this year and oddly enough, the major color I’m using is lime green! It’s not a color I usually use for decorations, but I’m really liking it this year. Add some glitz and shimmer with gold glitter, and you’ve got something special! Behold!

What holiday decorating fun do you have going on this year?
