House Walk

I had the pleasure of decorating the main dining room at the Reardon Mansion B&B for our local charity house walk event. The B&B is FILLED with wonderful antiques and has such charm. The furniture in the main dining room is massive and the ceilings are extremely tall..beautiful! Also, there is a lot of dark wood and fabric in the room. I wanted to lighten the room and make it a gold wonderland! As I was decorating I was very cautious in making sure the decorations didn't fade into the background.



Tall gold branches add the height needed in the room. The gold runner and matching placemats are so sparkly!

These tightly packed carnation balls look like snowballs.

Everyone thought these gorgeous roses were fake because they look so perfect! I filled the vases with faux snow and mica flakes to add shine.

Mini presents were used as our placecards. The menus were created by our local stationery boutique, The Paper Company. They have fun, cute, and interesting paper products and do amazing custom printing!

Cheers! Our local wine boutique, Montage, supplied the champagne. They have unique and hard to find wine and champagne.

The event was a great success and I am very honored to have been a part of such a great cause! I hope I was able to pass along some unique holiday decorating ideas...ENJOY!!!

Tracy - The B & B dining room was absolutely beautiful! And thank you for the fantastic job you did on my dining room table and terrarium. The centerpiece and individual place setting arrangements were gorgeous and perfect for my decor. I would love to see the pictures you took. We also had lots of oohs and aahs over your last minute solution for an ugly poinsetta pot - the use of the dining room table napkins and a bow was perfect and tied it all in! I enjoyed working with you so much - and getting to know both you and your mom. I can't wait to call you again!
