Last week I prepped our dinner table for the holidays, but this week I’m focusing on decorating the outside of our home. The first step is to create a festive holiday front door. Dressing up the your entry for the season is a great way to greet guests dropping by for celebrations, Christmas parties and holiday visits. With help from Target, I created a traditional Christmas look for our front door. I started by flanking the black front door with red poinsettias, pinecone & berry trees and birch lantern candle holders. Every door needs a holiday decor and I selected a classic boxwood wreath. I added a traditional black and white striped ribbon and sprigs of live red berries to complete the look. As a finishing touch I selected a fresh diamond door mat. Loving the result!

Pretty Pink Roses :: The Bouqs Company

Flowers bring a fresh, natural beauty to any space. Through color, size and texture floral arrangements are a terrific decor accessory to help set a room’s mood. So when Bouqs, the premium online floral delivery service asked if I’d like to review a bouquet for myself, it was a no-brainer. I selected a dozen long stem pink roses called Sweetness. Sweet indeed! Like most of Bouqs flowers, they were grown at the foot of a mineral rich volcano in South America and arrive a few days later at my front door.

Here are the pretty pink roses in my daughter’s new flamingo room. So simple, elegant and sweet. And boy are these roses huge and long-lasting. Here’s an instagram of them a few days later. Amazing.

Another difference that makes Bouqs special? They cut flowers to order and avoid a lot of waste. In addition, Bouqs only sources from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that respect the environment and their workers. Love this!

premium pink roses from thebouqs.comSending beautiful flowers is a great way to let your loved ones know you are thinking of them and with Bouqs‘ hassle-free concierge service you’ll never forget a birthday, anniversary or special date again. Brilliant!

Shades of Green Bridal Shower Ideas

Recently I hosted a casual bridal shower luncheon for my future sister-in-law who’s a real sweetie with the kindest heart. She loves the color green and that was enough to get my creative juices flowing!  Here are a few images from the event…

bridal+shower+invitation

The invitation sets the mood for a party. I always recommend doing it the old fashion way too… sending a printed invite in the mail. In this digital day and age, receiving an invite in the mail is just more special.  The sweet invitations with the brides’s monogram framed in a leafy wreath were from Minted.

ribbon+tablerunner+green+white

Because the event was casual, we served lunch buffet style. The table was covered in a crisp white table cloth and shades of green ribbon in varying widths ran down the middle to create the table-runner  .

Ranunculus and green Hypericum berry flowersFresh flowers are always a must for an bridal shower event. Providing contrast and a burst of vivid color, I selected fuchsia ranunculus for the centerpieces. The ranunuculus were paired with green hypericum berry flowers and place in a trio of grass green ceramic vases.

boxwood+urn table centerpiece

For more visual interest,  a pair of forest green boxwood balls on top of mini silver urns were placed between the floral arrangements.

I actually made these myself. I downloaded the italic monograms here, cut them out on heavy card stock and added glitter. Well, so much glitter I ran out on the third letter and my hubby was nice enough to run to Michael’s the morning of the party for more glitter. Isn’t that sweet? I have the best hubby.

I was too busy being a hostess to snap a shot of the yummy salads we shared, but did manage to capture an image of the beautiful desserts. I think having a variety of mini cakes like this is so fun! We all loved the XOXO detail on the side of the mini cheesecake pictured above.

No guest should go away without a little gift.  To celebrate my sister-in-law joining the Bisbee family soon, we selected these beautifully packaged organic worker bee balms to remember the afternoon.  It’s a good think my further sister-in-law like bees… it would be hard to become a Bisbee if not!

Happy day!
