Meghan Plowman’s nordic inspired DIY Christmas centrepiece…

December 19th, 2013

Last week Bowerhouse had its 1st birthday! It flew past without me noticing while I was busy packing orders for lovely customers, what better birthday present than to know so many gorgeous people will be hosting their festive season gatherings with a 'Roy', 'Terrance' or 'Harvey' bar cart!

I am signing off for 2013 and you won't hear from me while you spend the next few weeks relaxing and enjoying time with family & friends, I will be back on the 9th of January ready for another fabulous year of shared ideas & inspiration.

For now, do scroll down to the final gorgeous instalment of 'A Very Stylish Christmas' - the very clever Meghan Plowman has created a stunning scandinavian inspired centrepiece using mostly collected pieces & items from around the home - Meghan & I would love to think it has inspired you to create your own gorgeous version for the table on Christmas day!

Wow your guests with this show-stopping DIY centerpiece…

December 5th, 2013

This week we are continuing our 'Very Stylish Christmas' series with a beautiful DIY from stylist Emma Grace Hawtrey. Although I'm yet to meet Emma, I have gushed over her gorgeous styling via Instagram for quite some time so I was thrilled when she agreed to create something special to share with you!

I absolutely love the idea of thinking beyond the traditional red, green and gold winter christmas theme and embracing the colour & spirit of summer when decorating for the festive season. In this DIY Em will show you a beautiful way to do this by creating a gorgeous & memorable Australian native floral centerpiece.

I dont know about you but the idea of an afternoon of escape from the pre-christmas chaos to put together something as beautiful as this sounds like heaven to me! The great thing about this DIY is you can use it to create a small & simple garland to hang on your door or a 2m long table runner! I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to give this one a go! (im heading off to buy a pair of secateurs right now!)
