So far, I've got none of my own Christmas decorations up that I can show you but I do have some favorite photos of garlands and things that I took this season during my espionage/research /comparative shopping trips this year.
Just in case you are stopping in at my blog for the first time today, let me explain that during the month of December I have to drag myself out to the garden centers, home decor shops and florists in my yearly quest for NEXT YEAR'S poinsettia planter design. I seek out the best new styles and color trends in christmas decor. Once I see what's "in" I start to work with the manufacturers in the orient to create a number of exclusive containers that I will eventually show to the buyers at various big box retailers.
In my travels this season I saw this fabulous garland at a local garden center..........I fell in love with this gorgeous wreath that I found at an amazing florist in down town Vancouver.........then there was this wonderful christmas tree that I wish I could have taken home...........
I hope I can get my decorations up by next week, once we finish shipping our poinsettias to market............and I finish checking out all the amazing ideas at the Nesting Place! If you like decorating ideas, you've got to check this site out this weekend.
