A Southern White Christmas

We’ve been busy lately… Consider it the end-of-year rush but we are in the midst of two large project installs and even managed to pull off a holiday photo shoot for Savannah Magazine.

These photos are from our take on a “White Christmas” in Savannah.  The owners of Rethink are both from the North (ie. used to lots of snow during the winter) and so we tried out an idea to honor the idea of a White Christmas…but with a twist.

If you  were to walk into our courtyard mid December you would find everything green and our many citrus plants with fruit on them- an image that is a bit odd if you’re used to leafless trees and snow blanketing everything.

This scene shows a white ‘n bright holiday cocktail party set up.  While half of the elements incorporate more traditional winter ideas (eg. acorns, deer, tinsel trees) some of the others are a bit more modern.

We covered the ivy walls with handmade felt flowers and the trees with delicate porcelain acorns and feathers.  We used our existing outdoor furniture and embellished some CB2 pillows with felt presents and a wreath.  The greyhound statues were given festive bell and ribbon collars and our faux bois planters were filled with moss and topped with peach flavored gummy mushrooms.  A huge citrus wreath (made on site that morning) serves as a backdrop to the seating area and two origami style porcelain deer lights give off a soft glow under our tall kumquat tree.  With delicious snacks and brightly colored candy filling white produce containers our King Charles spaniel, Reese, was just waiting for someone to trip and drop some food!
