December really is one of my favourite months, I love seeing the street busy. I noticed this year people where putting a lot of thought into their gift buying, it was all about wanting the recipient to know they where thought of and it wasn't purchased for the sake of buying something. Lots of you went mad for the enamel tree decorations.
We had a busy few days working with The Queensland Times styling the cover and some inside features of Decembers City Heart Magazine, I love the ritual of setting the table for Christmas so it was fun playing with the girls doing the shoot.
We discovered a new homewares range which tied in perfectly with our Christmas colour theme. The Louie Teacup and saucer flew out the door - I'm pretty sure a few of you had these under your tree this year. We have sold out entirely of the Louie range but we will have something new and exciting soon.
We start planning Christmas in Province not long after the Easter bunny has been and this year our theme was completely Australian. Hot summer days, prawns, mangos, trifle etc etc. That was the basis for the colour scheme, I wanted bold brights with not a hint of snow, antlers or anything Northern hemisphere....well until I saw these origami snowflakes and only because they where bold pink and orange did they make it in store!
Always looking for something new and creative to do so the rosemary from our herb tub was put to good use - snip of garden twine and hey presto, a fragrant organic wreath!
So here we are, the end of 2013 - may your night be filled with joy and laughter with a nod to how we want the new year to be.
