My Last Tree
This is my last tree for the season, and I must say, it might have been one of my most favorites. I have known Bo and Stanley for quite a while, so I was thrilled when Stanley commissioned me to design a Christmas Family Tree for them. Stanley grew up spending her summers on the Isle of Palms, and both Bo and Stanley now vacation a lot in Florida...thus the palm branches at the top of the tree instead of a star, and the blue crab, sand dollar, and conch shell at the base. I chose to letter their names in a more organic type of color. It sort of goes hand-in-hand with their lives. Organic. Real. Down to earth. Yet the little round ornaments add a lot of color splash to their lives. Trust me, they do have splash!
