New Holiday Decorating Client

We are so excited and still doing the happy dance around here. We have been chosen to do the holiday decorating for the Los Angeles Zoo this year. We couldn't be more excited to add another great client to our list of Clients. We will be working in collaboration with Fox Studios who will be creating a new holiday back drop for the Reindeer Romp at the Zoo. Kind of like a double header for us here at CHS.

Ahhh Inspiration

The other day I had the pleasure of enjoying as my friend puts it a "daycation". I had the pleasure of visiting the Getty Museum, after years of driving by it and thinking I'd like to go one day I finally had the chance. It was absolutely amazing, the art was fabulous and the buildings and the way it was designed was brilliant. Everything was designed down to the utmost detail. The collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures and more was just wonderful. Of course the things that inspired me since I can't paint, draw, sculpt, etc... were the wonderful bed above and the chandeliers. They inspired me because fabric and hanging things is what I love to do.

I fell in love with this bed the details were amazing. I looked at it and thought one day I'm going to get a party that I can design a canopy like this.............. and I can't wait!

The swagging of the fabric, the tassels, the ostrich feathers, the use of multiple fabrics just brilliant.

Just look at the wonderful little flower all beaded, just one more of the many details of this amazing bed.

And then there were the fabulous chandeliers, just breath taking and amazing the details were beautiful.....

All in all it was a wonderful "daycation" can't wait to go back

Holiday House Tour

I am so excited!!! I have been asked by a Women's Club in an affluent area to decorate a complete house for their Holiday Homes Tour and not a Christmas house. This year they are adding a children's house to the tour and I have been asked to showcase my different parties and themes throughout the house, I can't wait. I was worried when they called and said Holiday that it might be happening in the middle of our Holiday Decorating season and if so there would be no way I could do it, but YEAH it is at the beginning of November which will fit into my schedule perfect.

My creative ideas and thoughts are definitely burning the midnight oil. I have been wanting to update and play with different ideas for Children's parties and this will be the perfect place to do it.

I will keep you updated as the ideas stream forth..........................
