Show Me A Wreath for all Celebrations

Show Me A Wreath for all Celebrations….

Alyssa and Tyler are newly married, with great taste and style.

Alyssa and Tyler are newly married, with great taste and style.

Black tinsel wreath leaps from one season to a holiday to a celebration in a few simple changes. The value of quality ingredients as been a lesson well learned by our own Alyssa. She shared with us how she has repurposed her wreath base, ribbon and balls to celebrate 4th of July, Halloween, and Valentines day. Now her neighbors are lining up, wanting to place an order!

Red Tinsel wreath leaps from Season to Season and celebration to Holiday!Alyssa has learned the 1,2,3 of a great wreath,

Quality base

Wired ribbon

Focal point

Notice the items that she used the same in each wreath. She invested in the Black wreath base, bolt of black and white chevron ribbon, and some red balls.

Alyssa said she realized the quality of ingredients when she reused each time and it all still looked brand new. As newly married, with limited funds but the desire to decorate, she has found the perfect solution, repurpose and reuse!

From the looks of her wreaths she learned it well.

Way to go Alyssa, thanks for sharing!

Happy Decorating y’all,

One very special young man has worked with us over the past year at Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store and we wanted to honor him with a Picnic in the Park!

Our High schoolers have open lunch and we picked a park close to the school. Coby sent out a text to all his friends with date time and location!

and the kids came!

Do you create a good first impression? (2012)

I st impressions matter!

Will Your 1st Impression, Open or Close Doors?

You never get a second Chance to make a 1st Impression!

You CANNOT, NOT make a first impression.

 

People always form an initial impression about us, our homes, our offices, our businesses the 1st time they come in contact with us, in person, over the telephone or at our front door.

The experts differ on the number of seconds it takes to create a 1st impression, but between 7-17 !

Vision leads the pack of our senses used to make a first impression, smell is second.

Cleaning, sweeping, fresh paint, clean glass, cobwebs, etc (don’t miss up high)

 

“The 1st time I passed through the country of Switzerland, I had the impression it was swept down with a broom from one end to the other every morning by housewives who dumped all the dirt in Italy” Argentinean Journalist

What Season is it?

Everyday- coordinate with the color of door, house trim and brick. make sure the wreath or door piece is proportionate to the size door. step and view from the street.

 

Summer- consider a “fun”doorpiece to celebrate summer! flip flops, sunglasses, beach toys and garden tools

 

Fall/ Halloween- many wreaths and door pieces can be created to change from fall to Halloween and back to fall. adding some spooky is fun for trick or treaters. celebrate the beginning of fall and school starting with a decoration made from school supplies!

Welcome Trick or Treaters!

Wire on fall garland and fall picks, add ribbon bow and a fall sign as your focal point

Lisa Frost canvas banner coordinates brick and trim

 

Christmas –this is the time to go all out! add the sparkle and shine!

 

Winter/ Valentines- a plain grapevine wreath accented with a large fun bow can be placed after Christmas, think about adding a valentine or oversized heart to celebrate Valentines Day

Welcome to my home! Happy Valentines day!

Easter/ Spring- bright greens (St. Patricks Day) are a welcome sign after a cold winter, easter grass and easter eggs, complete with a basket and bunny can make a welcome entrance way!

Decorate Once Celebrate Twice or Three times..Valentines, Birthdays, and more

Decorating can be so fun when it’s easy and especially rewarding when you benefit more than once! At Show Me Decorating, we go all out for Christmas and ok-Halloween, but I also love to add a touch of the other celebrations through out the year. It may just be my candle jars changed out with sea shells for summer or back to school supplies for the month of September. I do LOVE Valentines.( Maybe, it’s because I’m a mother of 4 boys but I always want to spread L-O-V-E instead of f-i-g-h-t-i-n-g, but that’s another story.) This year for Valentines,  I decorated my door,  my candle jars, and my new chandelier.

Valentine Decorating-Jennifer '13

 

To decorate, I tied new @ShowMeDecorating.com bows with our fabulous wired ribbon for my door, chandelier, and candle jars. Great way to re purpose from Christmas! I love my @LisaFrost door banner and my talented niece and Show Me Decorator, Katy,  created the cute complimentary Hearts that are a little bit funky. I always love to add color with flowers for my pots from @Lowes and change these out for the season. I filled my candle jars with @conversation hearts and @redhots from @Target where I also found the cute Heart cut out table runner.

So, when an opportunity arrived to have a party-I was ready!

Valentine Table set

There is nothing more fun than hosting a party for a friend’s birthday!  I was very blessed this week to host a surprise luncheon for my friend, Suzanne.  Ashley, Suzanne’s daughter,  a fabulous chef and party specialist created a yummy lunch and fabulous birthday decorations that complemented my Valentine’s decorations. She really out did herself! I had decorated my chandelier with #showmedecorating #bows and covered the table in a simple black cloth with a chevron table runner from @groopdealz. Ashley added a garland tied with black, white, and red patterned fabric, black cake stands, delicious food, and a customized Happy Birthday #Bling banner!

Valentine Bday Cake

Valentine Chicks 1

Ashley really out did herself and her Mom loved it. Her menu was Spinach quiche, capris salad, a spinach salad with blackberries with a raspberry vingaigrette, @LaMadeline’s strawberries and creme, then a yummy Lemon creme cake. We all enjoyed each bite! We would love to see how you all are celebrating the seasons so share with us on #facebook, follow us on Pinterest, and check out showmedecorating.com If you like reading our blogs, please leave us a recommendation.

 

Happy Valentines,
