Decorating for EventsHave you seen my website? If you are decorating for any event — wedding, fundraiser, prom, home party, rehearsal dinner, showers, etc — Decorating for Events is a wonderful resource for ideas, decorating tips, DIY projects and more!

It is pretty new, only a couple of months old but I have gotten some wonderful comments from people. Having been a caterer, venue owner and event decorator during the past 20+ years, I thought it was time to share some of my tips and tricks with others. Hopefully you will find some great ideas and help for your party decorating needs.

Some of the articles at the site include:

In the Spotlight Theme – Ancient Greece

How to Make a Veggie Basket

WinterWonderland Theme Suggestions

Paris Themed Christmas Tree

Paris ChristmasI have always had a sort of romantic notion of Paris, France. having lived in Paris, IL for 12 years, it just got worse. I ended up decorating my living room with Paris paraphernalia and loved it!

During one Christmas season, I decided to add to my holiday decor by decorating a smaller tree in the Paris theme. I had a blast with it. I looked everywhere for ornaments that would work with the black and white color scheme I had chosen as well as anything that I could hang on the tree depicting the city.

I chose a bucket I found at a local home decor store for the base of the tree. It was black and white and had “Tres Chic” written on it. Additionally, I made ornaments from pearlized plain white ornaments. I used black puff paint to write French words and drew abstract Eiffel Towers on others. (See image)Paris Ornament Close-Up

The result is posted on the left. I just wrote an article at Squidoo about decorating a Paris Christmas tree with resources for doing it yourself.

I also have another article titled Decorating Small Themed Christmas Trees that includes Paris, School Spirit, Girly Girl, Rock n Roll, Golf and few other themes. Small trees can be placed around your home to add to your holiday decor. Make one that matches your kitchen (I had a Coca-Cola tree in my 50’s diner style kitchen too), or highlights a collection or passion. It’s fun and doesn’t cost as much as re-doing your main tree.

Just another of my Favorite Things… Mandee
