  1. You Guys are way too good! My decorations are still up. Any chance of you coming to take them down and neatly boxing them up. I am not that far and I can offer up Jim’s Green Chili Stew! I definitely will have to do better!

  2. You two are an inspiration! I was a visual merchandiser for years and it just burned me out for holiday decorating. But, you have made me want to again. Thank you!

  3. This is me: bowing & scraping before you!! I am SO envious of those of you born with that organization gene!!

  4. Oh my goodness! I am exhausted just from just reading that. Impressive to say the least and bless you both! Firstly it’s way worth it your place looks amazing (I might need some medication just thinking about the set up in November) Secondly, I will admit I leave my white lights up year round. We live in the country and I kind of like the way they look at night 😉 Thanks for sharing as always!! ps: sometimes (most times) they are not all white lights ( think Gretchen Wilson )

  5. Ohmigosh… If y’all ever want to come to Ohio (in warm weather, of course) you can have all kinds of fun helping me get organized. 🙂 (One of these days some sweet OCD individual will really help me)

  6. My creative mind wants (read “needs”) to be so organized…my better half would appreciate it! And so next year’s resolution is born! Sigh! Thank you so much for the insight!

  7. I’m proud that I finally have Rubbermaid tubs for ALL the decorations. They stack neatly in the attic. I draw the line at removing each individual bulb from the strings. I do love how organized you guys are!

  8. WELL. . . I was eager to play catch up, reading for tips and tricks for self and readers (many of whom probably still have their decorations up, ahem) – but holy moley!

    My best tip is be rich enough to hire two guys to do all this FOR you (no chance you guys are for hire, huh?)

    Inquiring minds NEED to know – how long does all this take?

    I stand in your shadows.

    • Hi Libby, I do display for a living and I’m decorating stores for Christmas all October and November. So I have a strict rule that nothing goes up in our house until thanksgiving weekend. Of course, there is some pre-staging in the garage until that weekend.
