Forty Winks looks stunning!
A couple of weeks ago, we kicked off the decorating process with a trip to my own personal hell, aka The Christmas Tree Shoppe. I seriously have a panic attack just thinking about that place. But, after wading though copious amounts of glitter and creepy figurines, we happily purchased a ton of silver snowflakes, red bows in various sizes, and jingly bells that made even this old Scrooge smile. Meredith also convinced me that a pine cone tree, covered in gold spray paint was a good idea. Since she’s the one with the design talent I eventually relented. We then drank a bottle and a half of red wine to soothe our frazzled Christmas Tree Shoppe nerves. I’m only sort of joking.
The next day, as I sat idly by (kidding!), Meredith designed a blueprint for an elaborate, falling snowflake design to be hung in our windows and on our mirrors. I mean this thing looked like it was drawn by an MIT grad student. Upon completing the algorithm, she started stringing the snowflakes on fishing line with strategical placement worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize. Another feat of engineering I wasn’t involved in…
But all that planning really paid off and the windows and mirrors are host to magnificent, sparkly strands of “floating” snowflakes. At the foot of each mannequin sits clusters of beautiful red poinsettias and red velvet bows adorn each chandelier. Add the gold pine cone tree into the mix and you have one gorgeous lingerie boutique. See for yourself and come visit us!
Oh hello Rachel. (I’m working on this very blog).
A red bra to add to the holiday cheer….

Some night shots Mer just took!
