I have received a few frantic calls from clients who have realized they are hosting company holiday parties or family gatherings in their homes and have NO IDEA where to start with the decorating. The holiday deadlines are fast approaching. Buying gifts, planning your decor and setting you calendar now will prevent the stress that comes with deadlines and priorities.

I have started planting bulbs to force indoors for holiday decorating. I love the look of paperwhites and the scent reminds me of Christmas in the South.
This year, I am also planning on ordering beautiful amaryllis bulbs to plant as gifts to my friends and clients.
The beauty of this gift lasts long into the winter and I also love that they are sustainable gifts. A little GREEN giving if you will. I also plan to plant a few for myself to use in my fresh holiday arrangements for the parties I will be hosting in my home.
If you want to get ready for the holidays and have a stress free season, I recommend starting now. From decorating, to planning any last minute furnishings updates, you can still have what you want if you start this week!
