This is one of those blog posts where I am genuinely sharing what I just did. Through my friend Emily Gemma’s blog The Sweetest Thing, I discovered that her sister Amanda is the genius behind Hello Holidays, and elevated holiday brand that focuses on high end, quality ribbon and holiday decor. Guess what I decided to gift myself this year? A MerryMaker to decorate my tree and redo all of my holiday ribbon on my mantles, Christmas Tree and wreaths. The end result? A beautifully decorated home for the holidays and a lesson in ribbon. Get 10% off sitewide with code TANYA.
Hello Holidays Decor
Do you know what happens when you decorate your Christmas Tree each year? You tend to do the same thing over and over again. I knew I wanted to purchase ribbon from Hello Holidays but I didn’t really know where to start. To give myself the gift of time, I hired Amanda to come to Dallas and magically transform my holiday decor. All I had to do is get everything out of our Christmas closet and put up the 10 ft. tree. That’s it – she did the rest. This service has become so popular since she launched her company a couple of years ago, that she now has MerryMakers all over the US. These expert decorators will swoop in and transform your home.
Amanda is an expert at ribbon! She has lots of Instagram Stories saved on her profile to show you how to cut your ribbon in 24″ strips and then tuck them into your tree. None of my ribbon that you see is continuous. She’s also an exceptional bow maker! Although she also sells ornaments, we collect ours and they are all displayed on our tree. There are many years of precious memories gathered here. In fact, we only have one Christmas Tree in our home. It’s in our formal sitting room near the fireplace so that Santa can easily find it. 🙂
While our holiday decor was fine, I had not updated any of our ribbon in 15 years. It was time. Amanda chose neutrals because that was the direction I gave her. If you visit her website, you will see that she loves color! I absolutely love how she transformed everything in one day. We got to know each other while chitchatting over Chick-Fil-A (I made her stop and eat something for lunch) and when she was completely finished, I took her to dinner at Bistro 31. Amanda lives in Bentonville, Arkansas so I wanted to make sure she got to see Highland Park Village with all the Christmas lights on. We had so much fun that day and we’ve become friends. I can’t wait for her to pop back in to Dallas!
