Columbia Christmas Displays

Felt a a bit like one of Saint Nick's Elves this past week!

I spent all week at Columbia Winery, installing brand new holiday decor elements and all of the new merchandise displays in the retail shop. (Many thanks to my crew: Assistants Karen & Beth, Lisa & Janel!) A new tree & ornaments, new garlands, arrangements, wreaths, & festoons spiffed up the facility with a fresh feel. We finally ditched the old decor that I had been 'making do' with for years!!! The new decor is stunning, and a perfect complement to the new brand image of Columbia, which focuses on the Northwest heritage of the wines. It's evident in the stags' head ornaments, woodsy elements, and natural colors as seen on the recently launched wine bottle labels below...

The 'new' Columbia is contemporary Northwest style, and the products in the shop really are perfect.The front display features dichroic glass art on hammered copper tables, with overhanging mossy branches dripping bronze glass ornaments. Very 'woodsy' in feel and a perfect entrance to the winery. The second photo shows the back approach of one of the front displays - it features Vietri pottery in brown and white glazes, with leaf-embossed brown linen and pinecone candles. An elegant Northwest winter scene.
I've got loads more photos to share soon. First, I have to complete the transfer of the web site to the new host...
