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,
Kathy and Becky
