TUESDAY Prep & Decorating…Another busy day at the Homes For The Holidays House. We spent three plus hours just opening and organizing Christmas ornaments from Crate and Barrel–and we haven’t even started hanging them on the tree (trees) yet. Three more loads from Crate & Barrel to bring over tomorrow then should be ready to start “decking the halls sometime tomorrow”!!!
WEDNESDAY Trimming Tree…Day 3 of decorating and we’re still plodding our way through Crate & Barrel boxes—and there is still more to come!!! A huge thank you to Carmel and the warehouse staff at Crate & Barrel for all the time and effort they’ve put into this project. Also, a very big (or should I say tall!!) thank you to the elves that showed up today to decorate our 12’ Christmas tree: Jodie, code name Tree Skirt, and Mel, code name, Mistletoe. What can we say—even Santa has helpers!!! One tree down, two to go!
THURSDAY Trimming Another Tree…Phew, only one more to go! Catlin from Homes for the Holidays dropped off a 7.5′ tree. Thank you to our special volunteer tree trimming team for meticulous work – the three “M’s” Our big (BIG) ticket item arrived today–thank you to our homeowners for arranging this–best Christmas decoration ever!! Drove out to Greenland Garden Centre to pick up the fresh greenery, as well as a few extra items including a gorgeous 9′ Christmas tree for which we were given strict instructions on how to properly fluff–thanks Greenland!! Starting to see the end in sight through all the open Crate and Barrel boxes but still tones of stuff to do!!
FRIDAY Another marathon decorating day! Peggy from Hypnotic Bloom stopped by to discuss planters, centerpieces, garland, wreaths and so much more. Can’t wait for her to work her magic. Put the finishing touches on two very special items that will add tones of curb appeal to our holiday house–real show stoppers! Started laying out the the dining room table. Picked up a custom made holiday piece courtesy of our friends from Accaboard. Starting to pull it all together as we continue to haul hundreds of boxes into storage – almost ready for the Global Premiere on Monday! Catch AMR Design bright and early on Global Morning Nov 19th from 8-8:45.
