Black & Spiro Christmas Window




I've been meaning to post these photos of our Christmas windows at Black & Spiro which we installed last week. I feel like I am always one of the last stores in Brisbane to install Christmas! Anyway, I went for a very bright pink and yellow combination this year. I wanted to end 2009 on a lovely bright note!

PS. The wreath is made out of beautiful dried out Australian native bush {very hard to see from these pictures} which a lovely lady in Melbourne made for me. I then decorated the wreath with silver baubles tied on with torn strips of fabric and ribbon.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your Christmas window... Perfect color selection! Don't even worry about being the last to do your Christmas window. We wait till the day after Thanksgiving to do our entire Christmas decor at our store. It's our little tradition... Thanks for sharing yours!
