For the past couple of months Kate Burger, owner K8 Vision , has been doing an amazing job merchandising the store. So this week I asked her to decorate the store for the holiday season. I explained to Kate that I'm not a big fan of the usual holiday decorations, but I did want the store to feel sparkly. We decided to go with a Winter theme and to also incorporate my new love of succulents.
Kate decorated moss balls of assorted sizes with succulents and other decorations.
Here's another one of Kate's creations on our coffee table. The white bark logs add to the Winter atmosphere.
A closer look at this arrangement. Three types succulents were used to add variety in color and texture.
One of our dining tables is decorated with pine branches and rosemary.
The silver twigs and mercury glass add some shimmer for the season.
The grey succulents and the deep green of the moss compliment each other beautifully.
This picture really doesn't do our branches justice. They look just stunning lit up with shimmery little birds scattered about.
Kate also lit up the front windows...
She wrapped all of the plants in simple white fabric.
Our finches were thrilled to be inspiration for some of the decorations, like the little birdies on our ceiling branches...
as well as these mercury birds...
In one of our other windows a group of assorted silver vases are filled with frosted twigs...
I love the juxtaposition of the industrial table and the hydrangeas.
