Customers Learn Holiday Decorating Tricks of the Trade

How many ornaments does your tree need per foot? How can you use those big vases in your garage to make a statement on your holiday table? How do you make a perfect bow? These were some of the topics covered in our last two Tinsel Training classes, held at our Bell Rd location. Customers joined us for hands-on training on decorating the tree, mantel, and holiday table, as well as how to spruce up and display wreaths and garlands. Designers Leonard Chavez and Christine Price not only taught basic design principles, but industry secrets on pulling off the designer look in your home this holiday season.

We laughed, shared stories, and enjoyed a great discount on holiday decor items in the store.
