Holiday Décor from 2016!
The holidays are here and with them brings one of our favorite aspects of the season: holiday décor! During this time of year we’re hired to deck-the-halls, so to speak, at some of our beloved clients’ buildings, homes, and offices so we thought we’d share some of our favorite projects with you all! Over the years our staff has perfected the art of holiday décor and we think everyone should add a little holiday touch to their personal spaces, you know, to get in the spirit of things. Obviously this would start with, you guessed it, a tree!
We’ve decorated a tree or two over the past 15 years here at The Flower Studio, but these are some of our favorites from this year. The towering triumph here is the lobby tree at The Driskill Hotel in Austin, TX. This live, 15′ tree is hand-picked in September where it is later cut and shipped to us from Oregon for use throughout the Christmas season. Our designers cover the tree with over 5,000 lights and 900 ornaments while they also adorn the hotel with additional holiday decoration. The entire process is completed over the course of three days with a total of four trees, six 6′ wreaths, and over 300 feet of garland!
Obviously we don’t all have the high-ceilings to allow a 15′ noble fir in our family rooms, but if you have a fireplace or mantle a little holiday garland can make a room glow with seasonal spirit! Traditional or contemporary, a faux garland strung with lights is more than enough to add a touch of winter to your home. If you have decorative credenzas or wall mirrors the same treatment can be applied so as to accent evenly throughout the home. Plus, when you’re finished with it in January you just box it back up and forget about it until next year comes around!
Of course if you’re ALL ABOUT the holidays, you can broadcast it to the neighborhood with some outdoor decoration. Many stores have pre-made outdoor lawn fixtures or lighting configurations, but our clients prefer something a little more personal. Here’s an entranceway the absolutely welcomes guests with a warm holiday hug!
Faux décor is wonderful for re-use and, often times, almost as convincing as the real thing! However, there truly is nothing like the smell and feel of a live arrangement. Christmas greenery, live wreaths, winter berries- there’s a plethora of beautiful seasonal flora to enjoy this time of year. Our holiday arrangements utilize all of these elements and more to the fullest, and can be delivered at a moment’s notice! Maybe as a gift to a loved one this holiday season, or maybe just for yourself (we won’t tell anyone!) Should you find yourself in need of a last-minute gift or a stunning table arrangement for a family gathering, let The Flower Studio make something special for you this year. Have a wonderful holiday and a happy new year everyone!
