It’s the Holiday season and the one thing we give to show our love, friendship and thoughtfulness; is a present!
Do you look at how the gift is wrapped or don’t give it a thought!
Well, the majority of you do look at how the gift is wrapped!
The Nate Berkus producers called me asking for some Santa help, for they were going to have a segment for this very same thing! “It’s the holiday season and we wanted to know if you have any friends who could be considered thee best gift wrappers?”
Let me first begin to say that I have the most outstanding and wonderful friends ever and immediately put the word out! Not really saying what is was all about at first, I had to be impartial <what would we do without Facebook?> and by the end of the day, I had two eager friends wanting to know what was going on!
So I let my friends in on what was happening and gave them all the information to begin the process! What process? To see if they were undeniable thee best gift wrappers around!
Rhonda Culbreth, Kenneth Karp and Letia Mitchell
Rhonda Culbreth, my dear childhood friend whose smile always lights up a room. A wife and mother of two, is always loving this time of year! “The holidays are so special and when you’re wrapping a gift; I want to make it extra, extra special and beautiful!”
This is who you go to if you’re looking for wrapping paper, for in her basement you will find it cataloged, grouped by type, style and color…. talk about organized, another Martha Stewart!
Then there’s Kenneth Karp! Now when you receive a gift from him; it’s like a work of art; giving you a story before you even open it!
The gifts are so beautifully wrapped, that you don’t want to…but do anyway!
We’ve been friends for over 20+ years, he’s family to me! He is the one I call when I have a “Guess what?” moment; eagerly awaiting his opinion! Known particularly for his insightful thoughtfulness – when you receive any greeting card from him, you know without a doubt he selected it oh so carefully just for you!
After careful evaluation of their work, the Nate Berkus Show producers also were in agreement that they were quite excellent gift wrappers and were asked to be guests on the show to partake in a Holiday gift wrapping challenge with other contestants! Talk about being excited, let me say it was an understatement! So what will be happening on the show?
Christine Ferrare, fashion model, actress and now talk show host of Big Bowl of Love on Oprah Winfrey’s television network OWN will be sharing her holiday entertaining tips for a great happy hour.
Nate Berkus will give his own great Holiday tips and clue you in on how thrift shopping is an absolute MUST!
Lifestyle expert, Kelley Moore of Kelley Moore Creative Media will be giving you chic ways to personalize your gift wrapping, giving it that extra WOW factor! Kelley Moore will also be judging the gift wrapping challenge too! There’s a whole lot more happening on the show too, so tune in, there’s great Holiday ideas and fun for everyone.
I am not going to tell you who won the challenge or how the holiday season should include dressing up ALL members of the family! You have to watch! 🙂
The show will air this Tuesday, December 20th. After airing, I will add the segment and behind the scene footage! http://www.thenateshow.com/station-finder
I know you’ve may have already heard by now the Nate Berkus Show will be ending it’s production in May, late spring 2012. But do still keep watching!
It takes a lot of work to make a TV production happen seamlessly and I am so, so grateful to have received the opportunity to see what it actually takes to put it all together behind the scenes; it is quite remarkable!
So the ending of this show does not take away from all the hard work, long hours and dedication the entire staff has and continues to put forth daily, they are truly some awesome and talented people!!!!!!
Wishing them all the best in their next new beginnings!
