Yule Logs

Posted by danielle on December 18th, 2011. Filed under: I Make Things, Recent Posts.

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.

    New jobs sound exciting – I hope they are good changes! Cory’s got a new job here too – It makes going back to work in January a fresh start ( we’ve the next week off, Europe is much more civilised about holidays – although we’ve all managed to get sick this week).

    been meaning to comment on this! SO pretty!

    My mom had something like this around the house when I was little but it was the early 80s and had plastic everything on it! Ha! Yours is so classy. Love!

    Oh no! I hope you all feel better soon and yay for Cory and his new job! Our changes are for the better. We were both unhappy at our former jobs and in a bit of a rut.

    Thanks Lara! Artificial greenery has come a long way since the 80s.
