Here’s the Dirt…at The Clay Pot…Preview Party a Hit!

“The Clay Pot”
Holiday Preview Party was a Wacky Affair!

What a fun night at The Clay Pot! Our “Holiday Open House”
was a wacky affair with over 300 people attending.
I wanted to create a fun theme for this year’s open house and it definitely was!
We all had fun creating our costumes.
We made “be-u-ti-ful” party hats and used almost
every piece of tinsel in Chattanooga.
Needless to say, all our guest were shocked and surprised
when they arrived.
We had “Sexy Santa’s” and “The Jumpettes” for everyone to pose with.
And boy, did they have fun posing!
We ended up taking over 200 photos.
It was a definitely a night to remember!
I would like to personally thank everyone who attended
and thank everyone who
worked so hard to make it such a special night!

Here’s the Dirt…from The Clay Pot…Mini Fall Arrangements

Mini Fall Arrangements
from The Clay Pot
Sometimes simple is better. I love grouping these mini fall arrangements together to make an impact for a centerpiece. These mini arrangements were created using a glass votive cup, wrapping it with salal leaves and tying the leaves with a piece of raffia. A small piece of wet oasis was placed in the cup. Using one bronze spider mum and a touch of greenery is all you need to finish off these cute mini arrangements. Group the arrangements in a circle or run them down your table. They are also great for place card holders. Place an arrangement at each place setting and add your guest’s name fastened to a twig or stick.

Pumpkin Arrangements for Fall!
Pumpkins make a wonderful container for fall arrangements. These pumpkins were carved out and filled with wet oasis. They contain sunflowers, Australian greens, china berry, salal, rover mums and birch sticks. We can create these wonderful arrangements in many sizes. Call The Clay Pot and we’ll fix you up for fall!

Here’s the Dirt…from The Clay Pot…Mums in a Box

Mums in a Box
I love creating these mounded arrangements using fall mums. They look great grouped on a mantle or dining room table. The mums are long lasting and are available in many fall colors.
The arrangements shown are done in brown metal containers.
Available at The Clay Pot

Here’s the Dirt…from The Clay Pot…Flower Balls

Flower Balls
We created these mum and moss flower balls to hang in a tree as a backdrop for an outdoor wedding. This idea can be incorporated for any season of the year depending on what your color scheme is and what flowers you are using. For summer use apple green spider mums and daisies. The green moss balls help keep the natural look.
We continued the use of the flower balls throughout the wedding and reception.
It really was neat!
