Decorating for the Holidays in Jackson Wyoming

Saturday, December 24, 2011
We’ve returned year after year to one of our favorite spots in the world for skiing, Jackson Hole Wyoming. On the edges of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the area offers fabulous skiing in spectacular surroundings and abounds with majestic scenery, rugged mountain landscapes and plenty of Rocky Mountain lodge charm.

This spectacular environment provides enormous inspiration for holiday decorating with it’s tall white bark pine trees and glittering snow not to mention the stone and timber architecture of the luxury resort at the base of the mountain, Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole.



Each year we return, we step inside the resort in anticipation of seeing the impressive, beautifully decorated and wonderfully fragrant Christmas trees that reach to the very top of the ceiling in the lobby. This year was certainly no disappointment with the trees decorated in hues of cranberry and burgundy. Large glistening kissing balls, sparkling red pine cones and large mouth blown glass bubbles were used to create these magical trees. The little golden eggs in nests and fluffy, life like squirrels added to their mountain charm.


During one of our trips several years ago, we set out to find out who created these gorgeous sparkling creations each year and so were very pleased to meet floral designer extraordinaire, Ian Whipple, the owner of Floral Art based in Idaho Falls. We took a trip across the Wyoming/Idaho border to his store that year and picked up some of the decorations used on the trees at the resort to take home for our own decorating. Since that time, Ian has expanded his business and now operates a second store in the heart of the town of Jackson itself.


This year, entranced by the decoration of the 2011 Christmas trees, we visited Ian again in his new store and caught up with all that he had been doing.

Ian’s business creates spectacular floral designs for many of the luxury hotels and private homes in the area as well as for local businesses and events. On the morning of our visit to Floral Art Jackson, Ian was busy not only serving the walk in customers but was also in the throws of organizing arrangements for 50 tables for an upcoming political fundraising event to be held later in the week.


At this time of year, Ian is particularly able to let his creativity soar. With clients who own winter vacation homes in the area arriving from all over the US and who require their Christmas trees set up and decorated prior to arrival, Ian is able to ensure their homes are decorated and ready for the holidays.
 
Should you find yourself traveling in the beautiful Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Parks, be sure to pay a visit to the town of Jackson Wyoming and stop by Ian’s beautiful store at 185 Alpine Way, Jackson. More of his work can be seen on the Floral Art website or Facebook page.  Enjoy.



Setting The Christmas Table at Lindesay House using Moyarta’s Accessories

Thursday, November 24, 2011
Apart from the dazzling array of Christmas gifts, antiques and décor on display at the annual Lindesay Christmas Fair, one of the key attractions each year is the Lindesay Christmas table.

Each year, the dining table in the large red, formal dining room is styled by National Trust Committee member and stylist extraordinaire, Annette Blinco.
This year, Moyarta were delighted to participate in the fair and thrilled to be asked to include our accessories on the dining table.

Set in spectacular tones of teal and aqua, the table was a focal point of the fair and a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our Moyarta accessories.

Antique silverware and glassware glistened on the table all of which was for sale through Showcase Antiques, one of the antique vendors exhibiting at the fair. We were most tempted by the little Victorian teal coloured cocktail glasses  on the table, not to mention the Sterling Silver Kings Pattern flatware service.

We would like to thank Annette for including our accessories on the Christmas table in such a stunning, formal dining room.

We are already looking forward to participating in the fair again next year and to assisting with accessorizing the table again in 2012.

A little bird told us that the 2012 table is going to be pale pink and is sure to be just as gorgeous as this year’s table.

Christmas Shopping Without All The Frazzle

Monday, November 07, 2011
Join Moyarta this year for some early Christmas Shopping at the annual Lindesay Christmas Gift Fair:-

Lindesay House

http://www.nationaltrust.com.au/

1 Carthona Avenue, Darling Point

Thursday 17th to Saturday 19th November 2011

 

Instead of rushing around in a frazzle this year shopping for Christmas, why not do your shopping at a more leisurely pace and join Moyarta at this wonderful annual event.

Join Moyarta at the National Trust Lindesay Christmas Gift & Antique Fair.

Not only is the fair an opportunity for shoppers to get a head start on their Christmas list, it is also a wonderful opportunity to view the beautiful historic Lindesay House, a stately 1830's villa restored by the National Trust. With sweeping lawns, spectacular views, gardens and courtyard, the house is normally only open for public viewing one day each month.

At the fair, shoppers will discover treasures including jewellery, scarves, shoes, antiques, stationery, cushions, linen, fine embroidery, home wares, gourmet foods, children's clothes and accessories and of course the stunning table linens and accessories of Moyarta; perfect for Christmas entertaining.  We look forward to meeting you there.

The History of Lindesay House

Located at Darling Point, Lindesay was built by the Colonial Treasurer Campbell Drummond Riddell in 1834, who purchased 17 acres reserved for him by the Acting Governor, Lieutenant Patrick Lindesay, his friend and fellow Scot, and after whom the house is presumably named.

 Darling Point grew up around the grounds of Lindesay, which once swept down to the water. It was the first house to be built on Darling Point and attracted distinguished occupants.

The house is the first domestic example of Gothic Revival in Australia, with fine interiors restored by the National Trust to represent the house of gentlemen, prominent in colonial society during the first half of the nineteenth century.
