Last week I did an event for St. Albans School at the Meridian House, a historic property designed by James Pope, who also designed the National Gallery in Washington. It is a most beautiful building.
We did 3 different mantle arrangements and made some little tree arrangements for the buffet tables. For a late fall vibe, we used Rover mums, monbretia pods and Terra Cotta roses. The trees were made from Sweet Gum branches in birch tubes with an arrangement of roses, mums and greens around the base.
