Welcome to Picadilly & Company

Picadilly & Company, creating home decor knick knacks one party at a time. We provide you and your guests a fun evening creating a home decor items while in your home. It's a great venue for a Girls Night Out, family get together, etc. However, before we can create them in your home, I create them for my home. And there are some things I do, that I just cannot bring to someone's home. So, check out what I'm working on, maybe it will inspire you.

Currently I am preparing for our holiday homes tour. I will begin decorating for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. In the meantime I am creating different projects to decorate with. So, the ideas I am sharing do not show the final stage often due to that. In December I will post pictures of the final outcome. Thanks for stopping by. And please, check out the website above!


H is for Halloween.

I got this idea from Jones Design Company at: http://jonesdesigncompany.com I was a bit lazy and used the supplies I have instead of purchase the same supplies she used. I scrounged around my husband's spray paint and found hammered metal paint. I simply sprayed it onto the H. (The H is paper mache from Hobby Lobby.) Then I made three black fabric roses from the hem of a t-shirt. And toppped it off with a skeleton key. Add's a sweet little touch. However each family member has asked me, "What does the H stand for?" Maybe I am a little ahead of them for once.


Apothecary Pumpkins

With the arrival of autumn, it was obviously time to pull out my autumn decorations. As much as I enjoy doing so, my decorations are getting a bit tired and old. I almost tossed these pumpkins I have. They have a bit of texture to them and some sparkle. However they have lost some sparkle over the years. In one more attempt to resurrect them this year, I came up with this. Below are the supplies I used, plus black paint and a hot glue gun.
I used old wooden candle holders as my base and used finials from Lowe's and spray painted them black. As the paint dried, I worked on my pumpkin. I cut off the stem of each pumpking (it is just foam). With the burlap ribbon I hot glued a simple ruffle going around the top. Burlap ribbon is now everywhere but the best price is at Michael's or Hobby Lobby from what I have found. Once the paint was dry, I hot glued the finial to the top of the pumpkin and also glued the base of the pumpkin to the candle holder.
