Now that the holidays are here, I wanted to give you some ideas from Landscape Images, Urban Earth and some of my own – in case you haven’t decorated yet!
Marianne Mumford of Landscape Images loves to use warm glow LED lights for the beautiful ambiance that you can see when lit in the day or night. For a more playful look, they install white lights first and then overlay with larger, colored bulbs. The ribbons swirling on the tree add a fun touch before you put on the ornaments. They like to use fresh and artificial garland. If using fresh, they double the garland for big entrances, but remember to flip it so it all flows the same way!
James Clawson of Urban Earth’s ideas include featuring textural elements such as branches, pods and even peacock feathers. He loves ribbon accents of blue and bright green. The photo of the fireplace uses traditional holiday greenery accented with Dusty Miller and red llex berries.
He loves to create magic with a bright holiday entrance complete with icicles and lanterns.
I’m Bev Church with Entertaining Celebrations. I love to add gold stars hanging from the chandelier, and accents of red and pink roses with carnations in a wreath centerpiece complete with a candle. My favorite surprise is including chair back bouquets: small pine trees accented with roses and carnations tied to the back of the chairs with bright ribbons!
I hope that some of these ideas will help you start a new tradition this year! You can always call Urban Earth, Landscape Images or any of the talented designers we have in our city!
Have a great holiday with family and friends and be safe!
