Decorating An Extraordinary House

Nybelwyck Hall at the Hudson River Museum

We were thrilled to do the fall decorations at Nybelwyck Hall, the extraordinary 26 room mini mansion on permanent view at The Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, New York.

We adorned the front entrance with one large wreath above the door and surrounded it with a garland of fall leaves in golden shades of red, yellow and bright orange. Smaller wreaths created by Tina L. Paris accent the coach lamps.

We placed a number of fun and spooky miniatures to set the scene for the Halloween Night celebration including skulls by L. Delaney.

We had a blast decorating this house for the Fall and extend a big thanks to the talented miniaturists who contributed their wonderful work!
