Show Me Decorating: Recipe for Holiday Tree Trimming DVD

Becky and Kathy run Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store in Midland, TX where they sell Halloween Fall and Christmas merchandise.

Their success led them to form a sister business called Show Me Decorating which allows Becky, Kathy and their other sister Jennifer to:

“spread their passion for creating, inspiring and educating others to decorate like a professional.”

“Their mission is to “save the world” from ugly Christmas trees by supplying know-how and great product from their online shop that mixes with anyone’s own treasures to create magical memories for your family.”

The team has decorated many trees and home using their techniques including the 15’ tree at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas for many years running.

The instructional DVD was one of their first Show Me Decorating products. It goes over every step for decorating your holiday tree using the Show Me Decorating technique. If you’ve never decorated your own tree, you will find the first few steps helpful (picking a spot, measuring, putting the tree up.) However if you have put up a tree for years, you will find those steps obvious.

According to the sisters, the reason many of our holiday trees are boring is because they are one dimensional. We just place all our keepsake ornaments haphazardly on the tree with some lights and voila, boring.

The DVD comes with a small booklet that also goes over the steps again which are:

  1. Tree
  2. Theme
  3. Ribbons
  4. Balls
  5. Florals
  6. Bead Garland
  7. Ornaments

There is definitely more to it than that but you’ll have to watch the video to see what it is. I found the advice helpful and it made me think of things I would never have normally used and made me think more about where I chose to place certain decorations.

Christmas Balls for Decorating Your TreeEven the parts that seem familiar to me (the balls) are not. I don’t currently use balls on my tree but I did when I was a kid, until they all broke. Now a days you can get plastic balls that looks like glass and in all different shapes too. I don’t know if you can get the really big ones though anywhere except Miss Cayce’s Christmas Store. The big ones may look way too big at first but used properly, they add depth and colour.

You can see what is available at the Texas store or buy your own copy of the instructional DVD at Show Me Decorating.
