The winter, and December in particular, is filled with seasonal decorating in almost every neighborhood. This season I was out and about taking note of how each neighborhood decorated and embraced the season. I realized that although your religious beliefs or geographic location may influence your design style, traditions will have the most dramatic influence on your Christmas and seasonal decorating in general. Did […]
The 2011 color of the year, PANTONE Honeysuckle, encouraged us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. Tangerine Tango, a spirited reddish orange, continues to provide the energy boost we need to recharge and move forward. “Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth […]
The past weekend was filled with rushing here, need to be there, make this, bring that and not to mention all the various menu items our bodies are exposed to over the holidays. Although I honestly love every minute of it, the day after Christmas was the first day we had nowhere to be, no […]
If you are like me, each city you have been to has locations and memories about it that you associate with being there and will become your list of “Favorite Things About ____” (insert city name here). Growing up in the NY tri-state area, New York has always been the city for me with the longest list of favorite “things”. […]
Each project (no matter if it is a room, a garden or an event) should have a theme that loosely inspires the direction. The Woodland Christmas theme was inspired by walking into my local Lowes and seeing 3 buckets of those round scraps produced when they cut the bottom of Christmas trees for customers. I asked if I could […]
While driving on a familiar road hunting for greens for a client I thought I saw a mirage. Quickly making a U-turn and almost getting my mother-in-laws car stuck in a fresh mud puddle, I pulled into the driveway of what looked to be a private home on the property of a large tree nursery. I parked and […]
Still searching for a gift for the foodie on your list? Create an organic kitchen herb garden for the counter or sunny window. Collect all your supplies: * Organic Herbs from local farmers market (or most grocery stores are now carrying fresh options by Shenandoah Growers in the produce area as well) * Organic Potting Soil – […]
Clear out your fall containers and give them a seasonal look using greens from your garden or local market. Using the largest pots you have in groupings, leave about half the dirt inside to hold the various branches in place. I love to mix all kinds of colors and varieties in my containers but use […]
My business in the north grew slowly and through existing clients so I really never had much need to attend events as a vendor. Although I have developed and worked MANY events over the last 15 years, I have never solely representing ME and my brand. Now that I am currently refocusing on my brand I felt the […]
You love the look of those homes in your favorite magazines decorated for the holiday season, but just don’t have the time to fit it into your schedule? Or maybe you don’t feel like you can really pull it off. Perhaps you are having a dinner party for your boss and want the evening to […]

OK – it has been 5 months since my last post…not so good…but here I am anyway. Cinco has been one of my favorite holidays for quite a while now. Living in the North East, summer was my favorite season and Cinco de Mayo represented the real beginning of the Summer Season. It added a whole month and […]
Good Morning and welcome to the world of blogging. Or should I say welcome ME to the world of blogging. I have quite a bit going on in my life these days, a new engagement, a recent move to Tampa Bay, rebuilding my business in a new area and economic climate, and quite a few Lofty […]
