The Trees of Hodgepodge

We’ve decked the halls at Hodgepodge! (I know, I know, but the big box stores are driving this train.) My goal is to remind everyone that we’re here. Go out and look—then when you decide you want something special—something different—perhaps you’ll think of Hodgepodge.

We’ve decorated 6 full-size trees and two feather trees so far. I have a vintage aluminum tree still awaiting its adornments, but I’m running low on vintage ornaments (I’ll rectify the situation soon enough—well, at least before the holiday!).

So, I thought I’d share each of the trees here on the blog. I’m starting with our Indoor/Outdoor Window decorations. This is the window we try to decorate as though there are two rooms . . . an Indoor room and an Outdoor room. The tree is divided in half—between the rooms—by this screen door.

For our Christmas decor, we decorate half of the tree for the outdoor room and the other half for the indoor room.

We’ll start outside . . .

here’s the tree—it apppears remarkably empty! (I thought we had a lot of ornaments on it, but it seems empty in this photo.) I love these flocked branches as a garland! My vendor for our faux florals has superior products. Every inch of this branch is wired and therefore, shapeable.

This is the swing decked out in more of our faux florals and some pillows.

We have a tree inside the shop we’ve completely decorated in this “woodland” theme. It will be featured soon.

Decorating half of a tree is a challenge!

I’ll share the indoor room soon.

Thanks for your indulgence.

Wow! The shop looks amazing! I can't hardly wrap my head around Christmas just yet, but it's everywhere!
