Originally from South Carolina, Jenn has lived in Charlotte since 1989.  A self-proclaimed Southern Belle, she enjoys being with her family and friends, adding stamps to her passport, cooking, and has a not-so-secret obsession with reality TV.

Holiday Design Tip:  Small house and no room for a tree?  Purchase bundles of tree branches from your local Christmas tree farm for $5, and transform them into stunning table scapes.  All you need is a hurricane globe, Christmas tree branches, ornaments, ribbon, and a little imagination, and you have gorgeous inexpensive holiday décor with very little clean-up!

Born and raised in Tennessee, Meghan is now definitely a North Carolinian after having been here for almost 10 years. Her background in project management lends itself well to the operations aspects of the show and she works closely with exhibitors, vendors and all involved in the show to build and maintain great relationships to continue the tradition of the show. She is also quite in love with her two fur babies and her volunteer involvement.

Holiday Design Tip:  Gone are the days of traditional green and red décor. Think outside of the box with your holiday color scheme this year! Try decorating with neutral colors and metallic accents to liven up your home!

Born and raised in the Charlotte area, Amanda enjoys music, adventures, and experiencing new things. You can usually find her at a live concert or at the airport. She’s easy to spot with her fiery red hair, great big smile, and bright signature colored sunglasses.

Holiday Design tip:  Upcycling is big right now! You can paint old CDs with chalkboard paint and create your own ornaments. This way you can re-decorate them each year to fit your décor theme or even countdown to Christmas day.
