Top the Turkey Table Event

Top the Turkey Table Event

Door County Nature Work’s Exciting “Top the Turkey Table” Event   Happens on October 24 and 25!     That’s when we’ll be featuring a Karen Lee Ballard Linen trunk show and a fun, festive Juliska dinnerware event to help get you in the mood for entertaining friends & family in the spirit of Thanksgiving. Why Karen Lee Ballard and Juliska? Karen Lee Ballard believes in the time honored tradition of entertaining in an elegant fashion. Whether formal or alfresco, eating with friends and family are cherished moments that should be enhanced with the beauty of fine linens. Designed with quality, durability and value, all their products are made with careful attention to detail and are machine washable. This year Door County Nature Works will be giving four free napkins and free shipping to everyone with a $100 purchase of Karen Lee Ballard Linens at the show.   Juliska was begun by two unabashed romantics, Capucine and David Gooding in 2001 with a collection of 40 historic Bohemian glasses – since then the company has blossomed to one of the leading home brands in America. Juliska is not about trends; it’s about loving life and living well. To celebrate their philosophy, we’re giving away a free holiday hostess tray with every $150 purchase, and a covered casserole dish with every $300 purchase. There will also be a drawing for a FREE Juliska Pewter Bowl! The Top the Turkey Table Event is scheduled for Friday October 24 from noon to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday October 25 from 10:00 to 5:00 p.m. Mark your calendar for this weekend. We love the...
Fall Color Trends 2014

Fall Color Trends 2014

Fall Color Trends 2014 Designer Stephanie Bunda Shares Fall Color Trends of 2014 Blues are very strong this season, with an emphasis on deep, rich Mediterranean Blue with grey still being the hottest neutral. A few of my personal favorites are Sherwin Williams Santorini Blue, Flyway, and Hyper Blue. My favorite greys are Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and Sherwin Williams Repose Grey. To contrast, Olive’s, Oranges, and Plums are popular as they add a dash of warmth and give a bit of a 1960’s feel and combining blues with Sour Apple Green creates a fresh, bold and crisp look when layered with Whites and Yellows.  When I design, I like to use lots of layers — pillows, throws and rugs and another big trend for the coming season is mixing metals and textures with woods. Need some help with this year’s color palette or a few more decorating ideas?  We’d love to help!  Stop in, give a call (920) 868-2651  or email us shop@dcnw.biz!   Flyway – Sherwin Williams Hyper Blue Sherwin Williams Santorini Blue Sherwin Williams Mink – Benjamin Moore Requisite Grey – Benjamin...

Floral Decorating Tips for Fall

Fall Flower Decorating Tips Some of the most vibrant flowers of the Mid-West are at their peek in late summer and early fall. This makes a great opportunity for some beautiful floral arrangements.  Begin with flowers that would be available in the fall–sunflowers, mums, grasses, leaves, zinnias in deep hues. Pick a container that doesn’t have a very large opening–it takes a lot of flowers to fill a bucket. If your vase has an opening up to 6 inches, you can use an Easy Arranger to hold your flowers in place, this also reduces the amount of flowers needed. Don’t limit yourself to a standard vase, a beautiful pitcher or basket work well too, this is your chance to get creative! Usually I like to use tall flowers in the middle, and if I have only one of a great flower, I keep it in the center. Add flowers one at a time; a good rule of thumb is uneven numbers of the same flowers. If you have a very large amount, perhaps that is not as important.   Keep in mind you need different textures for interest. For example, bittersweet, grasses, very tiny or very large flowers make the arrangement more...
