Show Me decorations that “Light Up” party!
The theme for the couples shower was love, and the event was hosted in the month of love, February. We love to look for unusual ways to carry out the theme and color story throughout the house.
Top off your table top decorating with a festive chandelier! Alta Lynn uses a base of Christmas green pine garland wrapped around the iron chandelier. She added a felt vine with red hearts, and the black and white polka dot ribbon ties it all together.
Show Me Tip: Invest in a great quality green garland and use it as a base for many decorating ideas. Most garlands (unlit) can be cut to the desired length with wire cutters.
Red wire was used to hang Old World red glass hearts and conversation hearts. Cut wire in different lengths and wrap on arms of the chandelier, finish off the other end with a heart and a curl.
Show Me Tip: Always consider the weight of the decorations before attaching to the chandelier.
Show Me Tip: Create interest by using a variety of heart sizes and different lengths of wire. (thin ribbon may also be used)
Chandeliers are a great area to decorate seasonally as seen in the Christmas Brunch hosted in November.
Notice the green garland and felt ivy with hearts is the base for the Christmas decorations! We love to use and reuse or repurpose decorations.
Lamps are another great place to decorate for celebrations, parties or seasonally.
This oversized floor lamp resides in the corner of the dining room and was the perfect spot to show off pictures of the bride and groom.
A garland of valentine hearts was secured around the lamp shade ready to slip in snapshots of the bride and groom!
The theme of Love is lit up and ready for the couples shower to begin! As you begin planning your next celebration or party consider these 3 tips
Show Me Decorating Tips:
1.Select a theme or color story: Love, Valentines with Red, Pink, Black and White
2.Gather decorations (at home or shopping) to coordinate and compliment the theme and color story: Valentine hearts, ribbon, table cloth, runner, centerpiece (remember the gift, a #CotonColors Happy Everything plate & attachments, is used on this table with fresh flowers in a pitcher added)
3.Set your table days before and designate serving pieces for selections of food to be served
Alta Lynn’s tip: Enlist a friend and it goes twice as fast!

To add a festive touch in the kitchen Alta Lynn hung paper lanterns from the ceiling hooks she leaves in year round and changes out decorations seasonally!
Ribbon is used to hang the lanterns!
Light weight decorations are an easy change out! You could also use oversized shatterproof Christmas balls.
Happy decorating y’all,

Show Me Pecan-Pie Muffins, Oh My!
We are so blessed to have amazing friends and team members who worked so hard to help us host this amazing event! Alta Lynn’s house was a whimsical wonderland of Mary Engelbreit inspiration, vintage and new and Mark Roberts Christmas Magic!
We hope you enjoy the delicious recipes and Show Me Decorating tips and ideas for celebrating this glorious time of the year, Christmas.
Pecan-Pie Muffins were voted a favorite! Trisha Yearwood shared this recipe on her cooking show and it was everything we hoped a Pecan-Pie muffin could be!
Show Me Decorating tip: Presentation! Collect serving pieces in your homes color palate, example Alta collects all things Black and White, checks, stripes and polka dots, these mix in with all her bold colored dishes including Christmas. Silver cake stands, trays and tiered servers are a great neutral color. The silver also adds the Christmas sparkle!
Pick a theme: Christmas Brunch, choose a color story: Red, Green, Black and White, gather from your dishes and borrow your best friends especially if y’all decorate the same!
Bacon-Egg Breakfast Bites had a surprise tater tot in the middle, yum!
Featuring the bacon-egg breakfast bites in a yellow paper cup was genius!
Tricia planned for weeks and researched, baked and taste tested many recipes before she found a balance of salty, sweet, tangy and spicy! She then set out to find napkins, paper cups and fun goodies to present the wonderful creations in!
The Brunch Egg Casserole was a great dish to make the night before.
Show Me Decorating tip: plan out your serving pieces and layout weeks before your event, gather supplies and plan recipes that can be done in advance so that you too can enjoy the party! Enlist friends as helpers (Alta’s motto)
Maple-Bacon Breakfast Rolls were the perfect mix of salty and sweet, it was like dipping your bacon in syrup while eating a bite of pancake!
……..and we have to share one more!
Burton and Burton is a favorite supplier for Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store and they create the best oven safe Christmas and holiday dishes ever!
Show Me Decorating tip: Collect serving/baking dishes that go from oven to table, or fridge to table, less cleanup!
Alta Lynn’s house was the perfect backdrop for this fun brunch honoring Mary Engelbreit and Mark Roberts.
This Christmas brunch was a dream come true to spend time with two of our favorite artist! Mary Engelbreit and Mark Roberts.
May you have a blessed and merry Christmas!
Happy Decorating y’all!

Show Me a Merry and Bright Christmas Brunch!
Alta Lynn hosted the brunch in her “Mary Engelbreit” inspired home!
Best friends, Tricia and Sheri (also huge Mary Engelbreit fans) prepared amazing delicious brunch dishes.
GeorgeAnn and our Show Me Decorating team decorated this home with a whimsical Mary Engelbreit inspired theme. Lots of touches of bold colors paired with black and white patterns of polka dots and Mary’s signature black and white check.
Festivity and fun was inspired by Mark Robert’s fairies, elves and Santa’s and created Christmas magic in this holiday home.
A fun time was had by all and Alta Lynn’s, Mary Engelbriet inspired home with a touch of Mark Robert’s Christmas magic will be a source of Show Me Decorating ideas for everyone
