Hydrangeas and roses are the fashionHydrangia and Rose arch

for this summers wedding scene, and we are only too happy to oblige.

Way back in July we did a fairytale wedding in our garden here, at Ferns and Flowers, Tea house and Bistro.

The arch had a mix of garden style flowers and features roses, hydrangeas and ribbons.

A bubble machine added  hundreds of bubbles to the I’do’s!

My door stocking Christmas

December 11, 2008

My door this christmas-2008-098

I used up all the damaged toys, ornaments and scraps, spray the insulation foam on a piece of plywood. Working extra fast make a three D collage for a door topper.  I then hung it over the door, placing yard clippings of evergreen around the top.  Stuffed misfit toys in the stocking after I filled the foot with old plastic bags. and topped it with more evergreens.  placed my old red Colombian on the step.  Cheap and easy, and I can store it, and use it in five years and it will be new and fresh again.

Ameriprise office decorations

The local office had two metal wall globes

hanging there, and I was asked to bring

a few things in to lift the spirit.

Well I thought they looked like Christmas

ball ornaments, and trimmed the tops.

Don’t you think they do?

Our front door christmas-2008-083

This is the front door of our shop this Christmas, drivers go by at 40 miles an hour, sometimes 50.  A simple clean look is what is called for. With the sneaky addition of lights to the door swag we add the sparkle.  See on the hing side of the door I send the plug to the garland set of lights, with enough slack to swing the door in with out it unplugging.  It works well, we have hundreds of guest coming in every day during the holidays.

A neighbors door, with New England charm.

Christmas in our neighborhood is special, each house has it’s own look, most built in the 40’s and 50’s, charming for walking and knowing each other.

I was asked to make something simple for the front door for this house, with plaid ribbon berries and greenery.  I added the gold ribbon to reflect the door knocker, and also because the house faces north, the shadow darkens the colors, and contrast is important when working with a black door.

They wanted traditional, no glittery looks, but we have to have something eye catching, she was very pleased.

This is Gandma's house this year, all ready for the snow!

This is Grandma's house decorated and waiting for snow!

This is grandma’s chalet in the traditional tones, with berries and greens if only we had snow, but who can complain about the 50’s for weather.

That picture was last week, this morning a dusting of powder sugar snow!

I’ll take a new photo.

Traditional Christmas Mantle

The soft cream colors here are accented with a touch of gold, and red for a classic look. This display in our shop is over filled, but at your home edit, then re edit.  At my home I often leave some decorations in storage, and take them out the next year,  they look new to me after that time.

We re-create, Christmas past, into Cristmas Present.

We re-create, Christmas past, into Christmas Present.

After a few years, the excitement of a decoration is just not there.  Storage and dust, damage and the “additions of stuff”  gives it a yard sale cast off look.   Sometimes the room that it belongs in has received up date, with new color, furniture, and a style.

Bring me your tired, week, and ugly.   With our professional make over, even ugly “A Wretha” can become a new star of the Christmas Holiday season!   Michael

Fruit and flower centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table, adds the flavor of the season.

Fruit and flower centerpiece for your Thanksgiving table, adds the flavor of the season.

The textures and colors come together when I gather flowers, to match the dinning room, the table cloth, and the china pattern.
We can make a pink and rose color dinning room look thanksgiving and fall like, by adding red apples, beige wheat, purple cabbage flowers, brown pears, red, cream, and honey tone roses and orchids.  Go ahead and call me for some suggestions!  Michael

A selection of fruits, nuts, and your family!

A selection of fruits, nuts, and your family!

Almost every family has a few fruits and nuts as members, but here we are talking about the holiday mantle decoration.  This can be created for Thanksgiving as shown, or change the ribbon, and switch the orange pumpkins and brown pears and fall flowers to red apples and green pears, along with the nuts, and a few flowers, Holly and back to adding the candles.  The best part is that after the family nuts go back home, you can eat the fruit!

This is a lovley fall bouquet, for a wedding party.  The attendents have rish red tone dresses.  The random cascade sets a carefree yet elegant look to a formal event.

Rich colors of the season, remind us of Tuscany.  This table is for a fall wedding celebration, but the combination is perfect for any family gathering.  Cabbages, sunflowers, roses, red rover mums, and Gerber add the rich textures to this design.

A Christmas Cape Cottage

November 22, 2008

The warm simple decorations are a greeting to friends and neighbors who come by.  Simple fresh cut greens from my yard accent the flower boxes.  Always try to do this before the cold hits. I have been known to have to boil pots of water to thaw out the soil just enough to get the stem in the soil! Making the job long and much more difficult.

A snowy New England morning at my home, I can smell the pan cakes, and the fresh coffee!

A snowy New England morning at my home, I can smell the pan cakes, and the fresh coffee!  It doesn't take much to make a Christmas morning special, or a home more inviting than a simple classic design.  Here I used clippings from my yard for the boxes, always try to do this before the coldest days.  I have been known to have to boil the teapot to soften the soil enough to get the stems to sink in.

We like to offer a simple natural looking artificial decor to add charm to a front entrance.  This is easy to store and will last many years.  Using weather proof ribbon, and berries, makes this a long lasting investment, and a quick yearly joy to put in place.  You know it can be pretty cold when it is time to put these darn things up. The last thing you want to do is spend more time than you like out there doing it.  Mull the wine I'll be in one minute!
