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!

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)

Show Me A Texas Sized Royal Red and Gold Tree Theme.

Show Me A Texas Sized Royal Red and Gold Tree Theme.

This tree is reminiscent of a live poinsettia tree. The best of both worlds, live red poinsettias encircle the beautiful Royal Red and Gold Tree Theme, and are low enough to maintain. The tree is filled with permanent botanicals (no watering required!) of big red poinsettias, glitter leaves and sprays. The fresh poinsettias fool the eye into believing this Christmas scene is a real tree!  First Baptist Church in Midland was forced to temporarily relocate to the Midland Center, due to a fire, during the Holiday season. The Show Me Decorating’s Midland team came to the rescue with a plan! A theme and color story were determined, ribbon, balls and florals were selected. The team kept in mind future decorating needs and the ability to reuse the investment decorating the Midland Center. This beautiful tree will be able to move to the reconstructed church for the NEW season and coordinate with their overall Christmas decorating theme and color story!
