Christmas in July (and the other 11 months)
Yes it may be warm outside but we have snow flurries (mixed with glitter) flying around Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store! Kathy and I begin the process of a NEW store each year by going to market (sometimes in December, even before we have finished the season). We attend market the month of January in Atlanta & Dallas and this year a quick trip to Las Vegas soon will help complete the buying for the 2013 season for the store and our NEW online store!

Each year we go with ideas in mind and then are also open-minded to be inspired. We look at magazines, home decor and holiday to see color and style trends and look for new ideas to use in display and design for Christmas decorations!
Here are more of the Christmas trees that caught our eye from the showrooms and designers we love! We created the Show Me Decorating app “Recipe for Holiday Decorating” to show everyone the basic steps to decorating your Christmas tree like a designer! Learn how to tie a bow, theme your tree, and decorate!
Market inspiration…… enjoy!

Show Me Traditional Christmas with a Twist
This was the second year to work with this client. We helped her to welcome all guests to her new home in the Christmas holidays. She wanted clean lines with touches of the unexpected and funky fun looks.
The front was a beautiful entry way styled with frosty teardrops, and covered by a fancy balcony.
The grand living area has a natural and frosty look. The garland featured frosty icicle branches and beautiful pinecones.
There are many great red accents in the house, so it was easy to add these red pencil trees to the foyer and shirts of red mesh completed the look.
She wanted traditional colors in the family room which worked beautifully with the existing furniture.
I mean really it is hard to beat the look of red and green at Christmas time. Matching garlands over the hutches and mantel make a beautiful background for the tree.
The centerpiece on the island look like a fresh collection of plants but it is an eye catching arrangements of permanent botanicals.
The kids play room has a kid-friendly tree with some of their hand-made ornaments. The tree also showcases their collections of snow village pieces.
The patio has yards and yards of fun-lit-garland with Seuss-colored ribbon and ball garland.
There is a touch of Christmas magic at every turn in this home.
