How’s Your Holiday Gift Wrapping? The Nate Berkus Show Challenge!!!!

18 Dec

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!

Letia Mitchell on the Nate Berkus Show? Legal Questions Answered!

26 Sep

The answer is YES!  With my love of decorating and design, it is not unusual to find me attending the syndicated talk show hosted by my favorite interior designer, Nate Berkus!

Remember a few weeks ago, I posted that I was at the Nate Berkus Show and I would fill you in?  Well, I couldn’t say anything until now!  Such great news!

While there, one of the producer’s assistant asked would I be interested in proposing a question as  a participating audience member, I said yes.

They replied that they would call in the next couple of days!  Leaving the show excited, I went to Carmine’s to have their caesar salad!

(I know, I am always talking about food) and while eating; I’d received a phone call from the producer of the show, asking if I was excited!   I said I love the show and I LOVE Nate!

Then she went on to say, you have to choose your wardrobe!  I am like what in the hell is she is talking about (with a puzzled face)….I’m just asking a question?  Did I miss something?  While talking to them earlier, I actually was interviewed!  The producers, to my surprise invited me to be a guest audience member. “You’re an interior decorator with such an infectious smile; with your personality and enthusiasm; we said Why not!”

So I met Nate Berkus! AWESOME! Such a wonderful person, he practiced saying my name correctly (Lee-Sha).  And yes, he is handsome!!!  Simply charming and humble; with a laugh that could also light up a room!  If you read any of my posts, you know how much I admire him!

Celebrity star and book writer Jackie Collins is the star guest on the show, where she will be talking about her life, books and how she loves her favorite sport (won’t give it away, you have to watch the show).  Her 28th book, “Goddess of Vengeance,” has just been released.  My green room was next to her’s and she was very nice; quite funny actually.  She has a wonderful sense of humor!

What will I’ll be talking about?  I will be partaking in a legal segment posing a personal question to the beautiful, Sunny Hostin, attorney and multi-platform journalist; who currently serves as legal analyst for CNN and Headline News’ InSession.  It will be airing this Thursday, September 29th.   Once it airs, http://www.thenateshow.com/station-finder, I’ll add the segment!

You never know what’s in store for you!  Big thanks to the Nate Berkus Show’s staff!  Caitlyn and Cara; you’re the best and hardest working PAs ever!

To my family and friends, as always thanks for all your support in this crazy journey that I’m absolutely loving!!
