A third-generation floral designer, Mandy Majerik is the much-acclaimed creative force behind HotHouse Design Studio in Birmingham, Alabama. During her search for inspiration for holiday wreaths, she uncovered an old family favorite in her mother’s collections—a set of mischievous elves—and knew they would be the perfect muse for a playful composition. Mandy chose carnations in mint green and red to complement her vintage elves and ornaments, then added camellia foliage, fresh greenery, and acuba before weaving in a strand of large Christmas lights.
