Friday’s Five

Beautiful ‘peppermint’ amaryllis.

Guys! Where the heck did 2017 go?! Despite being surrounded by Christmas stuff and all the red flowers at the shop, I’m still in denial that the holiday countdown is officially on; I haven’t finished my shopping (because I haven’t exactly started) or watched a single Christmas movie to help me get in the holiday spirit. This weekend I’m determined to hit all my favorite local businesses to tackle my gift list, bake a sweet treat or two, and get cozy on the couch with the Griswolds and hot cocoa.

Even though I’m behind on my holiday to-do list, we had a great week celebrating the season with friends and family!

I actually finished our holiday window display early this year! I really love how it turned out, especially our mannequin in her custom-designed Christmas cocktail dress that I made with live greenery and silk flowers. 
On Wednesday night, I went to my little brother’s Christmas concert. He plays both the baritone and alto saxophone in his high school band. I may have teared up through the whole thing because I can’t believe how grown up he is!

This sweet reindeer was part of a BIG holiday arrangement I designed for an event last night. I really wanted to keep him for myself.
