A Holiday Home Part 4

It’s the last day of July, so today we bring you Part 4 (the last Part) of our “Christmas in July” inspirational posts!  Hopefully you’ve already seen Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3, all of which differ in style and color.  Today’s design is a bit nontraditional.  It’s a way to incorporate a few details in to your existing space utilizing colors you may enjoy but may not acquaint with the holiday.  Who says you have to decorate in red & green each year?  Break the rules!  The photos below demonstrate our love of bold bright colors and the use of special elements in separate vignettes.  This provides a welcoming atmosphere for your guests and draws them to different areas of your home.  This not only helps to spread the company, but also spreads the fun and adds a few signature conversation pieces to your party!  See if you can spot the lace-covered lampshades, the glitter-covered craspedia cocktail stirrers, the moss-filled frame, the feather “tree”, and the fabric and ribbon wrapped gift canisters!  Consider these DIY ideas in your holiday planning or put your own twist on something fun and festive!  Enjoy…and Merry Christmas in July to you from the Whimsical Gatherings design team!

Did you enjoy our “Christmas in July” special?  Leave us a note to let us know if you are head over heels or completely abhorrent to the idea of holiday planning this far off.  And what do you think of these detailed photos?  We are so thankful for Amanda from John Black Photography.  This whole particular shoot came about over a glass of wine one night after working a wedding together.  She was just as excited to work on a “Christmas in July” shoot with us as we were with her!  She was so generous to venture out with her camera on a very rainy July day to make this come to life with our team.  Amanda and John are the dynamic duo of wedding, portrait, and commercial photography.  Their studio is located in the beautifully renovated Daylight Building in downtown Knoxville.  They rent out their studio for parties, rehearsal dinners, and small concerts.  Its a gorgeous open space surrounded by windows and tall ceilings.  If you need a modern loft-like space to hold your get-together, give Amanda a call…and contact our team to help you decorate!
