{ Style Tip } Welcoming Winter

Question: Hi Chris! Hope you can help? In the last few days it has snowed - alot. I'm throwing a dinner party and want the guest to arrive to more than a ton of snow piled against the door. How can I make a warm welcome? Thanks, Michelle L.

Answer: Michelle, Believe it or not we also get some snow down in the lone star state, so let me tell you what I do. I love ivy and moss. I have it growing year round (in the greenhouse during the cold months). Before your guest arrive, simply place ivy/moss filled vintage urns on both sides of the doorway. Right down in the snow. {Tip} Do this only 10 or 15 minutes before your guest arrive. Everyone will arrive with a fresh, summer dose of green to welcome them. And the off white urn plays well off the super stack white snow. Thanks for writing, Chris

Thanks so much for the tip Chris! I love that idea. It's mother earth at her finest - mixing the seasons. I'll definitely try it for the party.
