Home for the Holidays

Will you be home for the holidays?! "Home for the Holidays" is the theme my friends and I selected for our big holiday garden club event that is happening today!

Many months in the planning, a few stressful moments, a lot of hard work and a few random bursts of creativity...the day is finally here.

Our garden club creates gorgeous arrangements...think amaryllis, orchids, terrariums, wreaths and fresh flower arrangements for sale. The proceeds enable us to give back to our local community in ways that beautify, educate and inspire.

Above is the front of our invitation, created by my friend, Alexis...I just love the little ribbons tied around the holiday topiary. We repeated that element in the response cards.

I apologize for my lack of visits to all of my blogger friends...but I promise, I'll be back with renewed energy and time once this event is done.

Always remember....home and the holidays are wherever the heart is!

Those invites are precious! My husband has to work Xmas Eve & Xmas night, so my parents are coming to us! The good news is I don't have to travel, the bad news is he's working too much.

I like the little bit of green .. a very pretty invitation Elizabeth and I'm sure that the arrangements will be gorgeous. This sort of thing is a labor of love as you work together to create something beautiful that will in turn give back to your local community :) Next week we will be participating in an auction that will benefit displaced women and children in the city of Seattle. I can't wait :)

Hope you will have a few pictures to share!
