Bringing the GREAT OUTDOORS In

Yesterday we went on our annual Christmas tree hunt. We always go to the hip south Austin nursery called THE GREAT OUTDOORS.
Our friend Tom Tingley is the owner of this little slice of heaven. All year long the plants , flowers, and garden accessories there are a treasure trove. But during the holidays they get the best assortment of really fresh and beautiful Christmas trees.
I love the eye candy they display in each of their garden vignettes, and thought I’d share some fun, colorful images.







We found our Christmas tree there , and a few other goodies. One of them is this beautiful succulent wreath. I decorated the wreath by wrapping a clear vase with burlap fabric, and turned it into a candleholder. I placed it on a wicker charger and it instantly becomes a great table statement……

And speaking of bringing the great outdoors in…..

I recently found more deals at Lowe’s, like the fresh wreaths decorated in burlap & silk ribbons:
Along with a beautiful table arrangement:

Hope you’re staying warm and enjoying the beauty of this season.

  1. Hi Jeanette!! I love your front doors!!! I totally saw those wreaths at Lowes and loved them. I would have used them too if my husband wouldn't have put up my other wreaths with red bows… they go way high up and I didn't have the heart to ask him to take them down 🙂 Love that new wallpaper you posted about too!!

    Have a very Merry Christmas!!!!
