Pretty and Patriotic Styles

If you have been following along with me you know that while I have many favorite color combinations, red, white and blue is right near the top year-round!  That is one reason I get so excited during the summer months when it come to the forefront of the shop.  While in the other months I try to stay away from making this combination scream USA, these are the months where it is easier than ever to bring out a bit of patriotic prettiness to existing home designs – even those who don’t share my obsession with decorating with these hues.

Holiday Style 2021: Marvelous Metallic

The holidays are a time of celebration and glamour, the time of year when we bring out our finest dinnerware and crystal to celebrate with family and friends alike. If there was ever a season to be “extra”,  I would say it  has arrived! As I was deciding on our holiday displays for the year, I couldn’t help but feeling that something was missing from the mix.  Knowing that I wanted to keep a thread of nostalgia coming through in all of our holiday looks, I finally found what I didn’t yet know I was looking for.  Going back through old photos (vintage is just a style waiting to be new again!) I saw the most glamorous trends of the 50s – tinsel and the fabulous aluminum tree. The sparkle, the fun, the sharp pointy edges! In all seriousness, I love the metallic shine that this style brings to the holidays and knew I needed to transform my favorite part of them  into our 2021 holiday displays.

Bring on the Green(ery)

When it comes to decorating for the holiday season, I like to start off with stems. A great display is built up in layers and levels, each as important as the next. Beginning with greenery allows a strong base canvas to display all of your holiday splendor. You can’t very well add ornaments until you get the tree up first!
