All is Merry and Bright

All is Merry and Bright

The Black-eyed Susan team proved successful and ever-creative in another lovely home in Princeton Junction, NJ today! Splitting into 3 teams, we spread merriment throughout the house from a beautiful walk-in closet to the majestic foyer with curving staircase. Each room in this large home was trimmed, draped and decked with holly.

Yours could be next!


White pine garland+icy maple leaves+white tipped sugar cones+white stag horns+Luminara candles = Pure Style!

And that’s what you’ll find happens with the BES team making merriment in your home!


What can I say…this friend was found among the specialty ornament collection. May the force be with you…

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Two more Christmas setups tomorrow! Come see the magic.

It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!


This favorite project just got decked with Holiday glam ! The garland was added and then this spectacular shatterproof silver ornament garland was added-in a blink of an eye, fabulous style! Anyone can do it! Get yours in gold or silver. We secured the shimmery wreath to the mirror with a giant command hook…tied a double faced satin bow and stepped back to admire our design! Ohsosusan.


This mixed green garland has white pine, magnolia leaves and tiny green pepper berries…add this stunning white satin ribbon in a simple looped bow with multiple tails and a trio of shatterproof ornaments…Wow! (This will definitely weather the 4 active children who frequent this stairway!)


These shatterproof ornaments on thin tinsel twine (mercury looking, no less!) updated this chandelier and added the drama we needed to complete the foyer. My 8 foot ladder was none too tall for this task…


This lantern was filled with giant sugar cones and snow…add a little “Joy” and you’ve got the perfect eye candy for a darling family!


Christy’s ever favorite dining room was trimmed with glee. I added frosty greens to the succulent trophy vases, a supple, realistic garland to the art and several large sprays to the side board. A pair of silver deer grace the surface., With these practical dining chairs, covered in Sunbrella performance fabric, this room is ready for guests!


At the end of the day, we finished the design and met our fitness goal all together!

Another busy day for the Black-eyed Susan Design Team! Tomorrow, more halls to deck! Stay tuned.

A Week of Christmas Magic

A Week of Christmas Magic

Tomorrow marks our first day of holiday setups for our design clients who have booked our service to deck their halls with our merriment and magic! Six days packed full of fun. (Really!) Don’t be surprised if we show up with music and bags of snow. We take this seriously!


The Black-eyed Susan dream team (magic elves, basically!) arrive at your doorstep with a van full of tricks and inventory specially selected for your home. This platter consists of a gold shatterproof garland, glittered, bronzed pinecones, stag horns, candlesticks and our fabulous tiny battery operated lights! Oh. My. Whether this is for your island, coffee table or dining table, is it an instant centerpiece.


While you may not want our featured hot pink (!), we embellish lots of chandeliers with lush greens and ornaments. It’s a favorite request from clients each year. Pick your color and we will show you how! You can book us for next year…tii late this year!


You will always find a large selection of cloches…tall, small, dotted, etched, mini, oversized…I have them all!  This one is protecting a snowy owl with a garland of snowy, sparkly pine cones. A personal favorite, all around!


This is my second year for the snow-tipped sugar cones! We sell box after box of the plain ones, and this year I also have fabulous metallic gold ones! They are going fast, so come in soon! They are magic in a tree, on a mantle, tied together in a deep window or piled on a tray. Pour a little snow over them and you have a real statement!

I’ll try to keep you posted with a tiny vision from each setup we do this week. My team will be doing one day long setup or two half day setups all week! (Did I hear manis and pedis come at the end of the week?!)

Stay tuned for pure style and pure magic. Follow us on our instagram page too for live inspirations! #besusanstyle

It’s sure to be a week of high energy, high style and sheer exhaustion.

Oh, Deer!

Oh, Deer!

We installed our first client setup today! Yep. November 10. Since my store is all decked out, we’re in the mood and this cute family can’t get enough of the Holiday spirit. I dressed the dining room chandelier with ornaments, packed to the gills. Oh. My. An already glamorous and sparkling chandelier became even more delightful with glittering ornaments, silver…champagne…mercury glass…I love this!


Looking from the dining table…just see what I tied into this light fixture!




I piled my beautiful sugar cones in this unused firebox and added a gaggle of silver balls in a garland (shatterproof!). Then I added one strand of our LED tiny lights with a battery pack! Voila. Pure magic!


A lovely foyer with an open staircase, much in the style of Gone With the Wind, was the perfect stage for the most beautiful greens I’ve seen! I added some favorite boughs cascading at the cap of the newel post and my favorite satin ribbon with multiple tails for drama. Ahhhh!


This stately fireplace mantle was calling for a row of teeny, tiny sisal trees…who says you can’t curate a “collection” all at one time?! This just melts my heart. A vintage map below grounds the whimsy. Ohsosusan.


This collaged wall of favorite framed art was also the recepient of a trio of tiny trees! The perfect Christmas touch.


I took this 50″ tray from my personal stash (!) to complete the dining room centerpiece. The table is dressed with our Kitchen Papers chevron gold and white paper runner. The tray is reflecting the runner! Filled with an oversized silver punch bowl footed container and oversized ornaments, frosted pinecones, silver accents and snow, this is the perfect statement for a fully extenced dining table for 10. Oh, what fun it is!


My 10,000 square foot store is decked out with holiday throughout! Whether it’s a gift for a friend or for your own personal home, it’s all here for the taking. Until it’s gone, that is….

Come see the magic. Susan’s biggest, best Christmas Collection ever! Hope to see you soon.
