.....AND WHAT DID I DO FOR FUN THIS PAST SATURDAY AFTERNOON......??
Boy did I have a BLAST!!!
Around eleven Saturday morning the Sales Center called and asked if I could help put some decorations up at the Sales Office. They were pretty busy making cookies for the Tour of Homes the following day, handling the traffic plus their other necessary work!!!
Didn't have to think about that answer.....
Now how long do you think it took me to get over there?????? Pretty FAST!!!
My dream afternoon was waiting for me!
Two years ago one of the model homes had been decorated from "Head to Toe" or I should say Wall to Wall...Ceiling to Ceiling!!! The decorations had been stored away for two years and hadn't been taken out until last week.
Arriving, I saw boxes and boxes of fabulous, to die for, gorgeous decorations. Everything from bows, balls, tree, wreaths.....You name it ....it was there. Heaven for any designer to work with........I hardly knew where to begin. All I could think of was "Patty, calm down ....move slowly... and do the best you can....."
They requested I do the tree and whatever else to make the large Sales Center main room look "Decorated for the Holidays"!!!
First I divided all the items by color .....It was then easy for me to see that one color dominated and that would be my "Theme".
. My first job was to adorn the large chandelier that dominates the center of the entire room. I found two beautiful glass balls! I knew they belonged in a"Place Of Honor"
With MC on the ladder and yours truly giving "directions" we were able to hang them perfectly.
Now I could start on the Tree!
Russ was working the desk. He and MC handed me balls with the hangers, and I placed them carefully around the tree. I then finished with ornaments and bows I found in the boxes.
Across from the tree is a fireplace with a beautiful mantle.....Perfect place for the large wreath and garland.
Moving right along......two more spaces needed to be adorned!! The coffee/cookie serving area and the long shelf under the Monthly Activity Calendar.
Wow.......by 4:00 it was finished!!!! I have to attribute a large amount of the success to the GORGEOUS/MAGNIFICENT materials I had to work with.
BUT........The "story" isn't over...........
Sunday, when I arrived for the start of the Holiday Tour of Homes, under the tree was the BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT I COULD EVER RECEIVE........
The entire staff made this sign to show their appreciation. I can't thank them enough. I have never been so happy!!!!
THANK YOU .........YOU ARE ALL VERY SPECIAL
