The Home Depot Style Challenge

About a month and a half ago, Steph and I got together here in Charlotte to execute our plans for The Home Depot Style Challenge, which we’d been invited to participate in over the summer.

Here’s how it worked: The Home Depot shipped us a bunch of cool holiday-themed stuff and gave us the assignment of DIY-ing a holiday wreath, and styling the surrounding space. Head over to Beckham + Belle’s post on The Home Depot Blog for more on the DIY!

Setting Up Our Home Depot Style Challenge Shoot

We actually set up our holiday ‘scene’ on my back patio.  Since Christmas in the Carolinas is often pretty mild (I’m originally from Canada, so it’s all relative…), it’s not unusual to end up sitting outside on Christmas day. So Steph and I thought it would be fun to style an outdoor living room, complete with a comfy blankets, DIY plaid pillows, lights and a hot cocoa & snack bar. Super cozy.

The lights were a little more effective once the sun went down…

The wreath design was quite honestly Steph’s brainchild (she is quite brilliant). I just helped figure out how we could bring her vision to life!

It took us a while to figure out all the steps, and we messed up once or twice but I’m confident that if we had to make another one, we could really knock it out quickly!

Fail. I blame the old guy in the background.

This one wanted in on the action, feeling strongly that flowers should be incorporated into the garland.
Feeling ambitious, we even did our very first Beckham + Belle video … as we celebrated the completion of the Home Depot Style Challenge with Kir Royales.
