Encinitas Anniversary Party

Some of our favorite people came to the Gardenology Encinitas location to help us celebrate our 8th Anniversary.

Our stunningly beautiful assistant manager Zuleyma is in our new ad for Luxe Magazine.

Luxe's Heather Cunningham and Dave Long
We threw the party in conjunction with Luxe Magazine, and want to thank Heather Cunningham for all of her help.

Our wonderful hor d'oeuvers were from our awesome downtown Encinitas neighbor Via Italia

Owner Lili McIntire and merchandiser Meredith Hopper spent more than a week reworking the store and displaying all of our beautiful holiday items. The show-stopper, a 12-foot-tall artificial tree in the middle of the store that is dripping with pearls, glass icicles, and huge ostrich feathers.

Gardenology Encinitas Holidays 2010

  Check out our delicious, whimsical, glorious holiday tree. Before we decorated this 12-foot artificial tree, it was a little sad and Charlie Brown-looking. Now it's dripping with beaded garlands, snow-encrusted branches, downy-white ostrich feathers, over-sized glass icicles, and happy little birds perched on the branches. Pine cones bathed in snowy glitter hang next to the rustic birch star-shaped ornaments.... a beautiful contrast. The tree is alive with shine and texture... come in a take a gander at this thing of wonder..
   We tore the store apart last week. It is now put back together with our beautiful holiday displays. We are chock full of new decor ideas for your home. These wood block letter signs (below) are perfect for the mantel or side table.. I would tuck in a little greenery between the letters, hang your stockings and you have an easy way to perk up the fireplace.
  This angelic statue would look gorgeous gracing your hearth, sofa table or mantel. She is a versatile 18 inches tall, so she can go just about anywhere..
I love the way the chandelier is reflected in the mirror in this picture....
Our tall amaryllis bulbs never fade and can be used year after year...  tuck them into a pot, top with moss and you're done. Or  you can drop one into a small glass vase and show off the realistic looking bulb and roots. Beautiful and fresh..
Our mirror is draped with magnolia garland..
Our front window.... I love the juxtaposition of the spiky pine cones and soft feathers on the metal table.  
Gorgeous Zinc Clock face would make quite a statement in any room.
 Melinda is all dolled up in pearls and her new skirt and ready for some fun!
Warmest wishes for the Holidays!
