Simple and Festive Tablescapes

The table is one of the most important parts of the holiday season. It is where we gather, where stories are shared, and memories are made. Here are some great ideas to make your table the perfect setting for your Thanksgiving meal!
Keep it natural and use earthy/neutral colors, and if you can, use elements from outside.


Happy Thanksgiving from Marjorie Johnston and Co!

2 Day Makeover!

Last week, Marjorie’s long time client and friend went out of town for the week. While she was gone, she gave us free range (and a budget, of course) to turn her recently purchased house into a home! Because the client is so fun, this makeover was a breeze. Her case pieces have so much character and all she really needed was someone to help her place all of her wonderful things. 10+ boxes of books found there home on an open bookshelf we brought in from the shop; we also brought in lighting, rugs and some crucial accessories. In a span of 48 hours we flipped this house into a cozy and livable space. The look on the clients face when she returned home from her long flight was PRICELESS!
