  • Gift wrapping tips to squash your decorating doldrums ~

    sleigh full of presents

    Your holiday shopping may be over but there's still work to do!  While wrapping gifts can be a chore (and also a bore) we have some ideas to squash your decorating doldrums…

    Choose a palette and stick with it -- Keeping it cohesive will make your gifts look elegant and uniform.

    Color-Coded Wrapping -- Each recipient gets their one paper, that way there's no need for gift tags but they’re still nice to add!

    Make Bows from Leftover Paper -- An inexpensive way to make your wrapping look modern and fresh.

    Make a Box Tower --  Stack three or more boxes and tie a ribbon on top to group similar gifts together.

    Winter runway shows can be quite the spectacle.   The designers must have so much fun when they get to work with snow and ice as inspirations.  I mentioned in a previous post how much I loved the Chanel show which featured a giant iceberg.  Here are a few other runway displays that took advantage of a wintry theme.




    During Christmas we had our very own iceberg moment.  It featured our fabulous mosaic polar bear surrounded by peaks of actual ice!  The ice below created a large circular wine bar.  Wine glasses rested on elegant ice columns with our famous polar bear standing watch.

    Low lying fog and white fringe swag added to the wintry effect.  It was a grand display to say the least!




    Sometimes you must out all the stops when it comes to planning your event and we have just the tools to take your party to the next level... polar bears and all.


  • Runway to Tabletop ~ Thinking outside the box

    It's easy to place a beautiful vase of flowers on the table and call it a day.  What's not easy is coming up with a completely new concept.  We're always up for a challenge, especially when it comes to the thrill of thinking outside the box.

    Recently we thought, "A slinky may be known for being just a toy, but why not use it as a decoration?"

    It took over 500 Slinky's to create this outrageous and over the top display!  Rainbow Slinky's dangled from the ceiling and adorned the Christmas trees that filled the center.  Other details included a polka dot carpet, brightly patterned pillows, and ottomans of all shapes and sizes.

    This display of organized chaos is reminiscent of funky fashion designer Betsey Johnson.  She is well known for her over-the-top styles and whimsical aesthetic.

    When planning your next event, think of a creative design that will keep your guests on their toes. Or just call us!
