It’s time to give the traditional red & green combo a year off. We partnered with Ashley Rose, founder of @SugarandCloth, to show us how to tap into a more natural escape this season with a woodland-inspired mantle. Featuring a neutral color palette and organic textures, this simplistic, yet sophisticated design can be recreated following these few tips:
Select one motif:
Ashley Rose keeps her woodland design classy, and not chaotic, by sticking to one evergreen tree motif.
Design with dimension in mind:
Add depth by creating thoughtful clusters, not lines. Layer objects with varying heights and snake in garland, such as a wooden bead strand, to create natural groupings.
Dazzle with light:
Utilize wire lights and a variety of candles for a festive sparkle and touch of warmth.
Celebrate with a cocktail
Toast to your creation with a tropical cocktail, like this RumHaven & Cranberry combo.
1 ½ oz. RumHaven
2 oz. Cranberry Juice (Ashley used diet cranberry)
Squeeze of fresh lime
Add ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and shake. Strain into a coup glass and garnish with rosemary and cranberry.
