Holiday Blooms Make Me Happy

With temps falling and the smell of hearth fires burning, I feel a sudden and primal desire for holiday decorating!

I normally don’t start until after Thanksgiving because we traditionally spend the holiday with my family in Minneapolis. But this year following the loss of my mother, we’re all scattering to the wind…but Chloe and I are staying put right at home.

So YAY! I can make our house holiday ready NOW…starting with beautiful blooms like these freestanding amaryllis bulbs painted in holiday gold and silver. A genius concept. Thank you Trader Joes!

And it wouldn’t be happiness without orchids, lots and lots of orchids!

I put this arrangement together with plants from my favorite local flower store, Blooming Vase, and parsimon colored berry branches, also from from Trader Joes…

As my mother would say, “what texture!”.

And of course, I always like to echo the power of THREE in my design…in this case the plants & greenery, the books as accent pieces, and treasured Thai buddha from my fave home store in LA, Nell’s. Sadly the store is no longer there, the owners relocated to Chattanooga TN.
