First Impressions

With most festivities happening indoors, don't neglect the outside of your home!  Greet your guests with a warm and inviting entrance that begs them to come in.  Set the tone for your holiday decor with garland, wreaths and pots full of wintry plants.  Be sure to think creatively and use unexpected materials like moss, magnolia and bay leaves, boxwood, and mixes of traditional evergreens. Texas winters are mild and great for outdoor entertaining - make your backyard a cozy retreat for family and friends by decorating your patio or loggia.

Home for the Holidays

Don't you just love the holiday season?  Hot cocoa by the fire, sparkling window displays at your favorite stores, and giddy children trying to be on their best behavior...  It just never seems to lose its magic to me, and this year is even better because it's my first Christmas with a baby!
