Halloween…….all through the House, more fun than Frightening!
Follow Me on Pinterest

Beverly McClatchy loves Halloween. She  started decorating when her son was young, helping with school carnivals. Her love of decorating spilled into her home and she began collecting Halloween and decorating from the front porch to the half bath and every room in-between. Now her passion is sharing with her granddaughter and creating traditions and memories with her. Listen in to the podcast as Beverly discusses with the Christmas Decorating Experts how she starts weeks in advance and carries the theme throughout the house, more fun than frightening!

Check out all of our Halloween products on the website here!

Trick or treats? “How to” Halloween garland for Miss Cayce’s front entrance!

Everyone feels like a kid when Halloween rolls around! What was your favorite candy to receive? Did you ever get the wax coke bottles filled with a liquid treat?

or how about the wax lips and teeth?

Did you know whose house gave out the best candy?

If you love Halloween and decorating as we do you, you will love this simple, easy, step by step garland used on our front entrance at Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store in Midland, Texas, home to Show Me Decorating!

We hope you enjoy decorating and cooler fall weather. Watch as we transform this garland to fall and Christmas, in upcoming post!

Smiling pumpkin welcomes visitors! Happy Halloween!

Start off with a good quality garland, shape out the branches for a full look

Attaching the garland is easy if you have installed permanent screws in your brick, metal or wood door facing

After green garland is secure, add lime green mesh, bow loops in the middle and single loops in the corners, secure with wire and greenery

2nd and 3rd rolls of mesh added, big loops and tail on each side of doorway
Designer tip: each step should be able to stand alone!

Mesh comes on a roll (different quality and price are available at the retail level). check for good weight and texture to insure it will hold up in inclement weather. best source:
www.showmedecorating.com

Using the greenery branches, secure the mesh by twisting like a twist tie

Wire on #Dollar Store pumpkin buckets, great focal point   low-cost!

Get the most bang for your buck with a pop of Black and white! use wire to secure to garland. Ribbon is available on our website.

Betty, drills a small hole in lollipop sticks to secure to garland with a florist wire, this step is optional

Remember the  designer tip? Your design must look complete after each step. You could stop here and celebrate Halloween and add more next year!

Next step is to add 8″ balls as supporting focal points. Glitter polka dots add a whimsical touch to the Hot pink, lime green and turquoise!

The next step is to add large candy lollipops (2 sizes and mixture of colors)! available on our website  www.showmedecorating.com

Bright colored candy lollipops and balls add a Halloween treat!

Add the finishing touch with smaller (4″ and 6″) colored balls and sprigs of candy corn picks and it’s done! How many items can we keep for Fall and or Christmas?
Now its time for the fall weather to cool off!

Measure your doorway or entrance to determine how many 9′ (normal length) faux green garlands you will need. Lighted garland with colored lights added in, would add a spooky Halloween touch! Secure garland and leave up to decorate for Halloween, Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Viva Fiesta! Show Me some Streamers

Follow Us on Pinterest

Fiesta Time!

Whether you live in San Antonio enjoying 11 days of parades, festivals and more or you are having a Fiesta themed party for Cinco de Mayo or Graduation Celebrations.

  Show Me Decorating can Show you how with some easy to follow steps for making a fabulous Fiesta wreath.

 

Flowers, flowers, flowers, take center stage for Fiesta! Ribbon, bright, colorful and fun for streamers! Wow, what a statement. Coordinating wreaths for double doors!

Open up the back of the wreath and touch every branch as you shape moving around the back.

  Use a pipe cleaner (chenille stem) on the back as a loop to hang your wreath. Wrap two chenille stems together (for strength) and attach to wire frame, now turn the wreath around and see how the pine branches grow, shaping and fluffing out.

Focal points add interest, we love @Round Top Collection for metal pieces and of course a bow using the www.app.showmedecorating.com

 Fiesta is all about vivid colors and we fell in love with this embroidered ribbon from @Farrisilk. It reminded us of the Fiesta Queen’s dresses. Place your ingredients in a triangle pattern.

  Place flowers in a triangle, add a needle point ivy for filler and interest to the green pine base. Shape flowers and remember every flower has a face so make sure it shows.

We tied a full big bow (1 of the focal points in the 1st triangle) with a print ribbon, solid, mesh, and streamers. Add in half bows as you fill in the wreath and your triangles.

Fiesta is all about the streamers. It’s a great way to make a colorful statement and inexpensive! We tied our streamers (@ReliantRibbon) onto a heavy piece of wire or you could use the flat part of a hanger, then we attached it to our wreath base. You can remove it for easier storage, or take off for a different look.

Show Me another Cayce Grandbaby

Show Me Another Grand Baby Nursery!

Better late than never! That’s what happens when a grand baby is born during Christmas season.

 I have had such a blessed year by gaining 2 new grand children; Layla Elizabeth in July and Barrett James in October.

My daughter Katy and her husband Ben decided to wait until the due date to find out what they were having.  In today’s time that could cause a lot of people stress when decorating the nursery. However, we enjoyed putting together a fun, colorful, gender neutral nursery.  We are spoiled with access to a fantastic children’s fabric store @Graham Kracker in Midland who carry a wide array of fabulous fabrics, and mae all the custom bedding and curtains.  In Show Me fashion you must first pick your theme/colors.

Check out  www.grahmkracker.com

Katy loved Orange and Turquoise with a mixture of fun prints! Coordinating with the rest of her house she picked stripes and floral prints.  She took the diamond fabric and had @SherwinWilliams match a paint color for the ceiling of the room.  Painting the ceiling a color is a great option when ther is alot of pattern/color in the room. Katy had to use her negotiating skills with Ben, but in the end he agreed and even did the painting!

Next, Katy chose to re-purpose a dresser that belonged to her dad, Jim as a kid. She chose to paint it turquoise.

To dull the old finish and prepare it to paint, a de-glosser or liquid sand is used. This is available at @HomeDepot or @Lowes. With a t-shirt rag wipe over all the surfaces with the de-glosser following the manufactures instructions. Paint the furniture with @delta Ceramcoat acrlylic paint available @HobbyLobby, or @Michaels.

Tip: After desired color is achieved, use a wipe on poly varnish which is easy to apply using a t-shirt rag, follow manufactures instructions. Apply several coats for maximum protection. Matt, semi-gloss and gloss finishes are available.

Katy has a very eclectic taste and enjoyed mixing all the fabric choices and colors to create the perfect bedding and room for the new baby (boy or girl)!

 What a fun room! The hand me down dresser sports a fresh coat of paint and the orange lamp adds a pop of color!

Re-using and repurposing an old piece of furniture is fun!

In addition to the crib bedding we also carried over the fabrics to the twin bed.

 I hope you enjoy getting a few new ideas for a nursery!

Barrett loves his room and his Granna for helping to make it happen the Show Me Decorating way!

He encourages everyone to get his Granna and Aunt Becky’s App $2.99
