A holiday look to get through January

I know this is a little late to be doing "holiday" inspiration, however, I love this little display I created for an office before Christmas. I opted for non-traditional colors and a little bit of "frost" to try and carry this display over well into January. Because, really, after the decorations come down everything looks so bare!

I used a lime green and turquoise color combo. I {LOVE} how it turned out! Kind of wishing I had done something like this for my home! 

A cabinet top display in the main office.

To tie everything together, I used the same ribbon and frosted hydrangea throughout each piece.

I tucked some frosted hydrangea and soft green ornaments into the ribbon on this frosted tree.

Creative Juices

I was charged with the task of updating the chapel at the funeral home where I work. It involved updating 2 wall hangings and creating a VERY large piece for a corner. It was in need of some serious updating - I think the last time it was done was more than a few years ago! In the corner sat a very sad, very old, fake tree. I didn't think to take pictures of the before ~ until I sat down to write this! 

I hadn't planned on turning this into a blog post, but it really helps to illustrate the most popular trends right now ~ metallics and birch/vintage outdoors! 

The big pot arrangement stands almost 6 feet tall!

The two wall hanging arrangements were a little harder to do than the big pot. The wall sconces started out as a "white sandy beach" container... It was tough to get them painted to match the big pot!


I think these pieces turned out well in combining those two elements! What do you think?
