Processed with VSCOcam with lv03 preset

I just wanted to thank everyone that came out to the class last night! Myra and I had such a blast, you guys were such a joy to be around 🙂 …and special Thank You to Jeanie Fry who put the class together! She did a wonderful job creating a Christmas themed arrangement and teaching the gals how to create it in their own way!

We started the night with some amazing “Crack Dip” and Pineapple Pink Lemonade Party Punch…

Then we got our created juices flowing with “Bing Crosby Christmas CD” and guidance from the lovely Jeanie Fry of Blue Orchid Florals.

Jeanie provided vases with a “mercury look” that she created by spraying mirror paint onto the outer surface of the glass. Greenery was in abundance as we began to fill these cute little vases… the smell of Christmas was definitely in the air 😉

Tastefully elegant splashes of color were added by everyone… white & red roses, glittery sprigs, flowing grasses, and ribbon for bows!

Cheerful laughter drifted through the blissfully sweet air as the girls finished their florals… Talents ranged from a beginner to a seasoned florist, but that didn’t stop anyone from creating a beautiful masterpiece of their own.

Until Monday… We’ll be creating more Christmas-y beauty 🙂 You guys have a glorious weekend!

Gearing up for Festive Florals

We’re syked and ready y’all!! Cleaning up & prepping the area for our Festive Florals class being held here at Myra’s Garden tomorrow night at 6PM. This is a new class hosted by Myra’s and led by local Florist Jeanie Fry. We’re so excited to introduce something new and fun to you guys in the local community 🙂

As you should probably know by now… I am a lover of all things Pinterest… I am thrilled that there is now a place to search for and save ideas..projects..inspo..recipes..whatever..you name it it’s probably on Pinterest. As we are prepping for the Festive Florals class and decor-ing our Houses full of Christmas I am feeding my Pinterest addiction like a fat kid feeds on Cake… And believe that I can eat some cake people!!

Hehe… So I am currently desiring these projects in my near future 🙂

This snowflake looks so Chic with the White on Black theme. My walls are gray so I was thinking of painting my snowflake maroonish-red…What do y’all think??

I thought this was such a cute gift accessory idea!! I hate buying those huge packages of bows for my gifting recipients to rip off and throw away… They could throw away this twig instead! Plus… I have some cute little pompoms left over from the Oh So Cute Ugly Sweater I just made last weekend.

Lastly on my Inspo List today are these cute little HANDMADE Christmas trees!! I love these things so much 🙂 and I love them in all sizes! Coney Christmas trees have been my desire for years… but they can be so Darn Expensive to buy premade from the store. This looks like a doable solution to my “lack of” a NON-budget-pocket-book-problem. Basically I’m saying this girl has the Champagne taste Beer pocket book Problem! hehe…

Until Tomorrow… Let’s Get Crafty!

-XOXO,

Myra’s

DIY: Repurposing old Mismatched Christmas Decor

So today Me and Myra pulled out all the old faithful Christmas decorations! …even the ones way wayy wayyyy back in the dusty cobweb filled corners of the attic 😉 Some were still in great shape, some were worn, and some were mismatched from everywhere there and back. We spent a little while sifting through the boxes and I realized we actually had a lot of great stuff to work with!

There are lots of cute Christmas trees ranging from small to large, round to traditional. Ornaments, garland and lights… So we decided to choose a color theme… and we went with silver to start 🙂 Silver pairs well with just about anything and it makes for a good backdrop for other colors…or glitter…or more Silver!

Here are a few things I played around with today… Oh my goodness y’all I can’t wait to get home and make room for my Christmas Tree and all the decorations I have inspiration for!!
