Table Runner Ingredients

Soda bottles as a base for jerseys and stuffed with newspaper to give the jerseys shape then added tissue paper as FLUFF!

Steps to Fill Jerseys

The Coaches were kind enough to loan us the jerseys to use as decoration and gave us a chance to Showcase each sport on a table top! The stuffed jerseys also provided height to the table tops. ( The only items I purchased were wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, and spray paint.) The soda bottles were donated as were the trophies. We repurposed the WC flags from a previous year.

Thanks to my awesome team-Katy Thomas and Lanisa Cole for all of their help and for friends and neighbors that donated trophies.

Quick Idea-Have trophies lying around collecting dust but you hate to part with them-Pop off name plates and frame as a memento and hang on a wall or give to your favorite athlete.

Go TEAM,

Show Me: A Few of Our Favorite Things

If you know anything about Miss Cayce’s or Show Me Decorating, it’s that we LOVE colorful things! That’s why Coton Colors fits us so well! It’s so bright and colorful and well, it just makes you happy! Our first favorite thing is the Happy Everything Platter.

happy everything, coton-colors, colorful plates

It’s so great because you can change out the attachments for different seasons or occasions. This platter comes in neutral and white, for those of you that prefer a little less color. The platters also come in a mini size, too.

There are also cookie jars, canisters, and soap pumps you can put attachments on as well.

coton colors platters, cookie jars, happy everything, black and white, neutral

Next, we have the table swap. Now, this is fantastic! We love these dishes. There are charges, large plates, salad plates, and bowls. You can mix and match any colors you want! Isn’t that awesome? Here is some inspiration from a table we decorated at an event.

happy everything, place settings, colorful plates, coton colors

A white table setting is offered as well. This is great because if you don’t like a ton of color you can just add pops to fit your taste! This would be really great with all the different serve-ware options they have. It would add just the pop of color you need to the white.

Seasonal plates and table decor is also a must!

Here are some of the cutest candlesticks, too! So fun, but yet classy.

So, I am sure you can see why we love Coton Colors so much! There is just so much you can do with it! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Happy Decorating Y’all!

Show Me decorations that “Light Up” the Party

 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.

Look up for more decorating opportunities!

Look up for more decorating opportunities!

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.

Old World conversation hearts carry out the month of love.

Show Me Tip: Always consider the weight of the decorations before attaching to the chandelier.

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.

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!

Alta Lynn's motto: Friends are helpers!

Show Me a Personalized Fall Fireplace

Show Me a Personalized Fall Fireplace……as easy as 1,2,3!

The heart of the home, the fireplace,  is a focal point for seasonal decorating.

This beautiful Country French home is no exception.

Beautiful mantel "before" Show Me Decorating Fall DIY transformation

Beautiful mantel “before” Show Me Decorating Fall DIY transformation

Take a look at your everyday decor and edit. On this mantel we removed the candle sticks, bowl, frame, tray and glass candle holder. The rooster and potted topiary stayed to be part of the fall decorating.

Now it is time to select the fall decorating items. A green garland traditionally used at Christmas is a great base to start with. Wired fall garlands can be layered and wired in, no glue needed. We call it making the garlands one!

Green base garland, twister grass garland in fall colors and a fall leaf garland.

Now it is time to put the garland on the mantel.

Show Me Tip: Measure your mantel to determine how many garlands you will need for your Fall DIY. Green garlands and some novelty garlands are 9′ long.  Next decide how you will attach the garlands to the mantel if it is not wide enough for the garlands to lay on top. You can use nails, tea-cup hooks, wire and even C-clamps.

We used 1 of each garland for this decorating Fall project.

This garland could also be used on a buffet, bookcase, or as the centerpiece for your dining table.

Celebrate the season  and decorate key areas in your home for family and friends to enjoy. Choose quality ingredients, wired garlands and florals, Wired ribbon, and focal points to make a statement. Personalizing an item with the family name or initial adds a personal touch. Edit everyday decor leaving complimentary items that coordinate with your seasonal decorating.

This beautiful Country french home welcomes in the cool crisp air of fall and celebrates the harvest season. How will you decorate and celebrate?

Show Me Christmas Inspirations from Market 2013

A  Christmas Store takes lots of time and planning, but especially inspiration! We go to market in Atlanta and Dallas in January every year right after the holiday season. Believe me -it takes alot to inspire us especially after a busy year! After spending several days looking at what’s new and hot at market, we get together with our team and plan the theme’s for Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store and Show Me Decorating.  Here’s a quick look at what inspired us and soon we’ll unveil Miss Cayce’s spin on the looks from market.

#Christmastreetheme, #TraditionalRedandGreenChristmas, Show Me Decorating

Christmas Tree Theme Traditional Red and Green

Traditional red and green explosion with a tree top filled with florals and pops of lime green.

Christmas tree themes, #Christmastreetoppers,North Pole, #flockedtree, #elves

North Pole a whimsical play on Elves and friends on a snowy tree. We love the elf legs as a tree topper. The colors of red, emerald green, and lime green with a pop of white say Welcome to the North Pole.

Peacock, Turquoise, Christmas Theme

Peacock colors for Christmas

Peacock Splendor – we love the monochromatic color of turquoise and peacock feathers.

Christmas Tree Theme, Vintage Shabby Chic, Show Me Decorating, Cream, Silver

Christmas Tree Vintage Shabby Chic

Vintage Cream and Silver-Shabby Chic is back! We saw this throughout market in home decor, furniture, gifts, and jewelry. Vintage was all over! Wait until you see our take on this look-we’re going to call it Silver Service!

Snowman tree theme, Arch Tree, Doorway

Christmas Tree Theme -Snowman Arch Tree

A what? A SNOWMAN ARCH TREE- oh my! Wouldn’t this be amazing for an entrance or doorway. Frosty and friends also translates to a tree or garland with flocked foliage. We saw lots of snowmen!

We work hard at market but enjoy every minute of it and can’t wait for you to see the new Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store, Midland. Did you know it’s worth a trip from anywhere?

Show Me Summer Time Seashells and Celebrations

Show Me Summer Time Seashells and Celebrations

Show Me Sells Seashells by the Seashore….or should I say decorates with seashells…..

Summertime brings on lazy days, boat outings on the lake, travel, walks on the beach, family reunions and weddings!

I have two ideas involving seashells, flip flops, wreaths and the all important ingredient….. Ribbon

We recently set sail on the Carnival cruise ship the Magic! What an incredible trip with our daughter Rebecca and her best friend of all times to celebrate their 15th birthday’s!

Jena and Rebecca celebrated their birthday's with a dolphin ride in Cozumel, Mexico

While on our trip I collected a few seashells, rocks and coral that had washed up on the shore. Since this is a favorite of mine I have a glass jar in my bathroom filled from many of our trips. However it was full and while shopping at Hobby Lobby I spotted 50% off glass jars with lids and snagged one! It is perfect and as you can see and it still has plenty of room for more shells so I can take more trips!

I want to add a table runner to extend the centerpiece down the middle of my table, there are several options: purchase a table runner to coordinate, use a length of material or mesh. I think I will opt for the mesh because it is light and breezy!

I need to add a welcoming front door piece and the Glory Haus Happily Ever After burlee is it,

Show Me Bunko Party, 4th of July Style

Show Me Bunko Party, 4th of July Style

Mom, ready to host her Patriotic Bunko party!

Mom, ready to host her Patriotic Bunko party!

Our mom has always been a great hostess. We grew up with wedding showers, bridesmaid luncheons, graduation parties and a host of celebrations large and small.

She always allowed us to participate and by doing so, we all learned to entertain and love to!

She has a group of friends that take turn hosting their Bunko group. We are so proud that mom hosted this month because she had not done so since she broke her arm, had surgery and survived therapy!

The 1st step to make your entertaining easier is to decide a theme, and because it fell the 1st week of July, a patriotic theme was chosen (plus she had a collection of red, white and blue goodies) So mom gathered up her red, white and blue table cloths, flag squares, patriotic pails (to fill with candy), star centerpiece explosions, and small red, white and blue candles. Card tables were set up for bunko play and her dining table was set to serve buffet style.

Bunko tables are set and ready for fun!

Coordinating Patriotic paper goods mean less clean up!

Tip: Investing in washable table cloths allows for multi-purpose use from party to party.

Place table cloth on table and add collection of patriotic goodies.

Next was deciding the menu and a picnic theme came to mind, with fried chicken, potato salad, watermelon and Blueberry Ice Box Pie.

Easy as Pie! for the 4th of July!

Easy as Pie! for the 4th of July!

Tip: To enjoy a party, plan food that is pre made: potato salad, broccoli slaw salad kit and fried chicken. (no hot kitchen or last-minute prepping) Serve food in platters and bowls that coordinate with your theme!

Platters, bowls and serving pieces were gathered up to coordinate with the table-cloth and marked with post it notes of food they were to hold. White bowls, red platters and blue specked tin wear were all put to use.

The centerpiece was created from a drum lunch box (mom’s from a high school fundraiser), a metal picnic basket (which belonged to the original Miss Cayce’s), a basket of faux red tulips and ivy (they resides year round on the kitchen table) and an Abraham Lincoln wooden figurine from my collection.

A metal cross is displayed on the corner of the picnic basket, a nod to the sacrifice of so many for our freedoms!

Tip: When creating a centerpiece, consider shopping your home, bookcases, shelves, cupboards and closets for items that relate to the theme. Use different textures, materials and heights for interest.

Now have fun in displaying the food. Fruit is perfect for summer and what says picnic more that a watermelon. Be creative and scoop out all the melon leaving a bowl you can carve to serve it in.

"Watermelon Bowl" and cantaloupe are a refreshing summer time treat!
