Elegant Holiday Inspiration

elegant holiday decor
I have the extreme good fortune to have some really remarkably talented friends
who inspire me on a regular basis...
one of them, Miss Sylvia, is a stylist and decorator extraordinaire.
She owns Madam Palooza Emporium
a vintage prop rental house and styling company in Southern California.

The weddings and event settings that she creates are so intricate and detailed, 
so personalized and delightful, that they appear in magazines every month!
(she's currently featured in the newly-revived Flea Market Style Magazine
which is run by two MORE of my incredible friends!!!)

Sylvia called me up last week and asked me to help her 
to create some simple but inspiring holiday decor in her studio/showroom,
as it was to be the setting for an event industry holiday party.
Of course I said yes! We've worked together before, and it's always fun!

After a few hours of scavenging free tree branches from local Christmas tree lots
and eucalyptus foliage from abandoned parking lots
we embarked on a blitz to bring a fresh, welcoming holiday vibe to the room...
and after a 12-hour marathon workday, we achieved our goal!

Her studio/showroom is filled with vignettes of vintage props,
arranged to show prospective clients the many inspiring ways they can be paired, mixed, and used
to bring a very special touch to any event...
We just added a few simple 'holiday' details, like fresh greens and a few ornaments,
 to the setups that already existed:

It doesn't take a LOT of STUFF to get a holiday mood...
Add some fragrant and beautiful greens to your existing decor
and you'll end up with a subtly elegant setting for the season.

I hope you enjoy these photos and inspiring ideas,
and if you're in the market for renting vintage items for an event or photo shoot
in Southern California - especially in Temecula Wine Country -
make sure you contact Sylvia at Madam Palooza Emporium!
(she's on FB and IG, too!)
