We hosted out annual Holiday Decorating seminar last Saturday and had a record-breaking crowd. Nancy and Jessie put on an entertaining and informative show, with a few jokes and anecdotes throughout. They started things out right by taking an “elfie” instead of a selfie, which is when the fun officially began.

Highlights of the seminar included live-action decorating (the blooper reel will be released later this month) and a tree decorate-off between the two. Jessie officially won, of course!

The seminar ended with everyone singing a round of Silver Bells and a send-off with our message to you: “Go forth and decorate!”

Please enjoy a few photos that summarize the event, and don’t forget the LED battery lights! We found a use for them in every project.
