Yule Logs

I can’t remember a busier autumn than I’ve had this year. In a good way though. This whole season has been a whirlwind of visits with friends, concerts, local festivals and our biggest news – both Jeremy and I have new jobs! I have so much to blog about these days, but I just haven’t found the time.

One of the many things I’ve been meaning to write about, is a holiday swag and center piece workshop I attended a few weeks ago. I was invited by my friend, Laurie, a visual merchandiser by trade, but also a strong contender to be the next Martha Stewart.

The workshop took place over a Sunday morning at a floral supply wholesaler. While it was geared toward florists, I still took away a lot of inspiration from the demonstation and came away with this:

The birch logs are real, but everything else is artificial.

I’m going to hate to put this away after Christmas.
