Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. We had to put some things on hold for a little while. I had my first baby on May 25th and was on bedrest for the last few months of pregnancy. We had a few jobs at the end of last year and the beginning of this year that I would like to tell you all about! In December, we worked with Purcell Flowers and Gifts and decorated their shop for the Christmas season. In January, we had the privilege of working with the Heart of Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce by decorating for their annual banquet at the absolutely beautiful Grand Canadian Theater in Purcell, OK. Lastly, in February, we did an election results watch party for a woman running for Purcell city council (and she WON!). Now that I am no longer on bedrest and my new beautiful baby boy is here, I am looking forward to getting started back up again. I will make separate posts with details and pictures for each of these events. Please check them out and let me know what you think!
First, I will start with the Christmas decorating at Purcell Flowers and Gifts. In my last post, we had just finished decorating their shop for the fall season and participated in the “Loose Caboose” event. We left the fall decorations up through the fall season until the Thanksgiving weekend. The Saturday after Thanksgiving we went to work decorating for Christmas. The owners of the shop wanted to have the store front windows decorated as well as a large wrought iron gazebo they have in the shop and a photo-op area for pictures with Santa Claus!
We decided to do a traditional style with a red, white, and silver color scheme. We started by outlining the windows in white Christmas lights. In the small window we put up a Christmas tree and decorated it with red deco mesh, silver ornaments, white snowflakes, and white lights. In the large window we put down sheets of white “snow blanket” material and put large presents wrapped with shiny red paper and big silver bows on top. Then, we took more white Christmas lights and laid them on top of the snow blanket and weaved them around the presents and hung large snowflakes in the window. For the gazebo, we started by wrapping it from top to bottom with white Christmas lights, and we covered it in red and white deco mesh and added white snowflakes all over. Then, under the domed center, we hung large red ornaments and snowflakes at varying heights. We decided to have the photo-op area by the fireplace. We decorated a large Christmas tree with white lights, varying sizes of red ornaments, white snowflakes, white poinsettias, and silver tinsel garland. Then, we covered the mantel in a large green garland with red and silver ornaments, snowflakes, and red ribbon. We finished it all off with a large red and silver wreath and red and white stockings hung from the mantel.
It was so much fun decorating the shop for Christmas! I can’t wait to see what exciting events we get to be a part of for Christmas this year!
