Show Me NEON, flashing color and standout from the crowd!

Everyone wants to Stand Out from the crowd! Show Me Decorating has spotted NEON everywhere and when paired with black it is an instant standout! Here we are at #Flavourconf @C3Ggirls Global Girls Dinner. Great chance to learn from other leaders in Women’s Ministry, sharing fun event ideas and decorations!

Alta Lynn is showing off our fun name tags made with scrape book paper in fun shapes cut out with a @OfficialCricut @MichaelsStores and black chalk board paper , name in white to look like chalk and embellished with scrapbook stickers @hobbylobbystore! Checkout the centerpieces, White wire lamp shades, all sizes, NEON bulbs, (the Theme was Shine Your Light) and a neon charger filled with chocolate covered strawberries and cookies. The plate was accented with fresh NEON daisies, presentation, presentation, it’s all about presentation that elevates the simple to spectacular! Way to go Flavour Sisterhood!

Hanging in the trees, were wooden needle point hoops, with NEON and bright-colored strips of fabric, ribbon and lace tied on. The were great because they used the same color tones on each hoop, green several shades and textures, orange etc. This block of color really stood out versus mixing the colors. They also swayed with the breeze and that extra ambience. The black table cloths were the perfect background for the NEON colors to POP! We each had a favor at our place setting, a bright-colored Chinese take out box with NEON colored fortune cookies! We just love treats! Thankyou #flavourconf #sisterhood, @LisaYoungFC

This could even be a fun Graduation Party!

I love Black and White and when you pair it with NEON, well look out! This dance costume won “Best Costume” at the http://www.facebook.com/StageOneDance competition in Austin! The dance was “Tea Party” @Kerlimusic and had a whimsical Alice in Wonderland feeling, complete with a @Courtly Check  #MacKenzie Child teapot.

The Black sparkly hat just topped off the costume, green stretchy sequins ribbon was sewn just right, to slip on and was a great base to hot glue the piece of pink netting ribbon, Black and White polka dot ribbon @offray ribbon, large felt flowers, NEON chenille stems and pom poms @MichaelsStores and accented with a yellow feather! I can just imagine a Christmas Tree with these hats, fun bows, Big balls, crazy florals and teapots! www.ShowMeDecorating.com

We Show You how to decorate on our “How To” app at www.app.showmedecorating.com just $2.99

The fashion industry has also included NEON this year, paring with grey, black, and more. Check out the @Get_Bolt shirt, who wouldn’t want their logo to stand out from the crowd?

Kathy and Becky  pop against @RockStarSystem Craig Duswalt black clothing and are a sure standout for Show Me Decorating!

Be on the look out for flashing colors in NEON and show us how you stand out from the crowd!

Show Me Valentine Decorating in Lights!

Follow Me on Pinterest

Dressed up lamp for Valentines day!

Love is in the air… at my house! One of my favorite days to decorate for, Valentines. In the entry way I dress up the lamp with a sheer wired ribbon wrapped around the shade and tie on the puffy heart tassel. (last year this heart was hanging from a shelf in the guest room!) I love to use items differently each year. I also arranged my heart printed bowl, cute heart boxes and antique valentines sprinkled in! This create a fun vignette to welcome my guest.

I love antique valentines, I also keep special ones the kids have made, and sprinkle them through out my decorating!

So in keeping with the Show Me Decorating steps :

Step 1.  pick a Theme or Celebration, Valentines day

Step 2. Color story, Red, pink and black

Step 3. Gather items that coordinate and support the theme and color story. Valentines, hearts, ribbon, serving pieces, heart boxes

Hint: I have big clear tubs, marked for the season or celebration, ie: Valentines, Easter/spring, Patriotic/4th of July, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas!!!! (lots of tubs for Christmas!) Some of my items do double and triple duty!

Check out our app, www.app.showmedecorating.com just $2.99

Now back to Valentines, so the chandeliers were jealous of the lamp being dressed so now it was their turn.

Before, waiting for decorations!

Cut lengths of ribbon and inexpensive paper hearts (@hobbylobby)

Yes, I do really decorate!

Red ribbon with a heavy wire is wrapped on chandelier arm, allowed to curl and light weight paper hearts are attached to the ends!

Bright red ribbon and hearts!

The kitchen chandelier gets dressed for the Valentine celebration

Now the Big Chandelier gets dressed!

The before, waiting to be dressed for the party!

I gathered up all my goodies, glitter hearts, glass hearts, big plastic hearts and ribbon

Big red hearts are added, tied with red sheer ribbon, hanging from the middle is a cut out paper glittered heart from @Michael's

Old World Christmas has the cutest conversation hearts, they are so cute hanging from sequined wire(also from Christmas)

What would life be with out Glitter! Thanks @hobbylobby for great selections and prices!

Use sheer red ribbon to tie on glittered hearts to chandelier arms!

Shiny, glitter, glass and sparkle!

This Chandelier hangs over my table for the party and will be the main centerpiece.

All lit up and ready for a party

The Lisa Frost (@demdaco)puffy heart was the inspiration for my color story, and I will show you next how it was used in my doorway wreath……..

Love is in the air……                                                                                                       

May you be inspired to create as we educate you to decorate!

Happy Decorating y’all!

Springtime! What does it mean to you?

Springtime, a fresh green, more like a yellow green beginning to emerge everywhere, even out here in dry West Texas! It causes me to think of a new year, cleaning out and organizing!

Mark and I tackled the new storage shed today. Mark is so thrilled! Everything that was laying around is off the floor and hanging up! He can see all his yard supplies and I can find all my gardening supplies, soooo no more buying the same item twice. One of the fringe benefits of being organized, you SAVE money.

Spring cleaning is different for a lot of people so hopefully Mark and I have inspired you to start before the weather gets to hot.

What does spring mean for you and your family?

Do you have any tips and tricks that could help us out?

(leave a comment!)

Good Luck!

Becky & Mark McCraney
