Christmas early

So when Coldwell Banker Residential approached me to do Christmas before Halloween, I though they were crazy, 26 hours a very limited budget and a 13 million dollar estate, WHAT! I have to say it was great because I had full creative control to do what I pleased. I need to stress a very very  limited  budget with help from Nellie’s Deli catering, Sacs and bevena flowers I pulled it off.

I had a blast with the help of my trustee assistant Sabrina “stuffie stuff” so course she filmed what I was doing and unexpected. I took a beige dinning room and turned it into a white winter wonderland of Lilly’s, crystals and gold ornaments. This look can be achieved with any budget I used plastic ornaments and faux garland mixed with fresh flowers and white lights. I know you know at this point I am not a fan of permanent  botanical but when needed they come in handy.

Here are some before and afters what do you think?
