We love the smell of fresh pine in the morning
In this case it was 6am in the morning! Our early rise set the tone for all things pine-related.
Our lovely clients (and the award winning) Theodoor Gilissen bankers take pride in not only their work, but in their beautiful building on the Keisersgracht.
4 metre fresh pine garlands hung over polished golden bannisters with Christmas Trees greeting you at the entrance, whilst the 5 metre fresh Christmas tree and it's handmade wooden base was lucky to share the room with Warhol and Guido Geelen artworks.
We spent all morning climbing up and down ladders decorating the tree with baubles and ribbons - and setting a scene for Christmas.
Our second project, and one as equally rewarding is for a great 'coffee by day and drinks by night' cafe on the Utrechsestraat, Brug 34. Made with love using painted red and coffee-coloured pinecones, copper birch foliage, christmas decor finished with twinkly lights.
It wasn't easy to hoist this 1 metre 20kg giant into the air and onto the cafe's wall mirror..but they got there in the end and we are all really happy with the result. Next time you're in the area, sit and sip on a cup of coffee..or champagne! It is the silly season after all..
…only 15 sleeps to go!
