For once, I’d like to make a holiday post that actually gets published before the holiday! It seems the best I can hope for is to record with my camera and update later. Our tack store is set in a newer building at the back of our property near the 80 year old stable and chicken coop. Every year I try to decorate just a little more of the property for Christmas- this year the store’s exterior made the to-do list!
I was enamored by a Pinterest image that had wreaths hanging by ribbon on every window of a porch. We decided to go equestrian with that inspiration, and adorn each pillar of the store’s porch with a wreath hung by a horse bit. (In the summer, the same bits hold galvanized buckets planted with begonias.)
Perhaps my favorite element, I loved arranging this equestrian themed wreath with a plain wreath, ribbon, berries, silver ornaments- and horse bits and spurs!
