Santas and soup

My darling friend and former staff florist, Shannon, brought a crock pot of delicious soup for the staff today. It was a welcomed lunch break and gave us the energy to complete another days work towards the completed Christmas setup.

Linda dressed several windows with snowflakes and mercury glass ornaments while I worked with Ann to complete the organic section by the stunning tree Linda did last night.

Santas, nests, moss spheres, lanterns, trees, banners and garlands, many with a burlap common factor. Garlands were hung, more mantles dressed and box after box was broken down for recycling. Quite the day. Somehow, after three days of the late late shift, I'm rethinking the excitement of decorating my own home...we'll see.

Glitter jingle bells...oversized, in a beautiful bowl. Tie these in a wreath and listen for rave reviews.

Linda tied these beautiful real reserved moss wreaths on each side of the entry mantle. Simply beautiful.

I decked this mantle with my extra large pine cones housed in these large lanterns. A few ornaments and half a bag of snow later and they are the centerpiece for this design. Books, giant sugar cones, mossy spheres and a realistic giant pine garland later,voila!

Ann, working on the organic table, putting the finishing touches on the birdhouse. Expect the unexpected! So cool,

A little long tray gets Fred's log cuts added in with a good sprinkling of artificial snow...and a few mini ornaments from Whitehurst, And all is well.

Now with the clock reading 1:14, I'm ready to refuel for another day tomorrow.
