About Emily, Curator & Founder
I am a creative celebrator, a lover of themes, and a glitter connoisseur. Because I have two degrees in theatre, a full time career in event design, and a deep love of Christmas, I’ve been creating holiday decor, DIYs, and themed trees for a long time. This site is an extension of that. I wanted to showcase all of the amazing designers, artists, bakers, and crafters who bring new magic and ingenuity to the holidays every year.
Currently, I live in Nashville with my husband where I design and coordinate events for a living, mostly weddings and corporate functions. I love celebrating Christmas. To illustrate that point, I direct you to the image below: a drawing and explanation of “What I do very well?” from my kindergarten days. My answer, “I decorate Christmas trees. I put little gold balls on.” I knew then I loved Christmas decorating, and I’ve never looked back.
