Emily Henderson’s Holiday Guide 2011 & My Contribution

Emily_Henderson_Holiday_Guide_2011
Our favorite HGTV Design Star, Emily Henderson has been decking the halls for her first Holiday Guide. Guaranteed to inspire, the issue has one of the most comprehensive gift guides on the planet. Speaking of our planet, you will adore Emily’s “Peace on Earth” themed holiday décor. I love it all, but think she knocked it out of the park with the globe snowmen. Here’s a sneak peek from the guide and that will be featured on an upcoming episode of her show, Secrets From a Stylist:

I was thrilled to be a contributor for this holiday issue and wrote an article about organizing gift wrap.

I also created an “Exotic Christmas Mantle” for Emily’s holiday guide that features a ceramic elephant, Moroccan lanterns, and homemade stockings and pinecone garland. For color and life, I added a diy moss wreath, live aloe plants in birch wrapped containers and orange and lemon citrus fruit. The stocking pulls the non-traditional color scheme together. It’s quite an eclectic mix.

It was all done over Labor Day weekend. My kids thought I was nuts and were hoping St. Nick was going to get thrown off and stop by early!

Hope you get the opportunity to check out Emily’s Holiday Guide. I know you’ll be inspired!

    Love the globes as snowmen, I would never think of doing that, but it works so well!

    SO many great ideas! I would have never thought about putting ribbon in a straw dispense but it looks great. Congrats!
