Hello and Happy December! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and continue to enjoy the holiday season. I hope you also enjoyed last month’s issue of At Home and the featured Outdoor Thanksgiving meal we had here at the Outside the Box House. It really was exciting to see that in the magazine, and I send another big thank you to Chef Jen Lewis and everyone else who was involved!
I tell you, in the past month we have been so busy getting our clients’ houses and gardens all decorated and ready for the holidays, that there just hasn’t been a whole lot happening around here at the Outside the Box House. Earlier in the year, I had big plans to go all out with holiday lights and decorations and perhaps even throw a party. However, as I am sure many of you can relate to, life happened, reality eventually set in, and…well…that just ain’t gonna happen! Still, I couldn’t let the season pass without giving the house at least a touch of holiday spirit, so my team and I fashioned a simple swag of fresh evergreens for the front door. Tied with beautiful, monochromatic ribbon, it is a quick and easy decoration that still adds grace and customized charm for the holidays….
