Have A Hello Kitty Christmas at SM North EDSA

Best Blogger Tips
It's Christmas again! This is the happiest and busiest season of the year! You get to have parties and gifts, while doing good to our neighbors at the same time. Do you have your wishlist ready? If not, check out what's in store in SM North EDSA! They are having cuteness overload with Hello Kitty! I bet you will write Hello Kitty stuff on your wishlist once you see this beloved feline.

An invitation for a Hello Kitty Christmas only at SM North EDSA.
Other than the Hello Kitty attractions you will see, SM North EDSA also sells Hello Kitty items  for the home. My fellow bloggers and I attended a short seminar about decorating the home for the holidays. It was held in the Interior Zone lobby. The guest speaker was Mr. Jie Pambid, Director of Philippine School for Interior Design. 

The stage for the seminar.
Themed as Holiday Decorating 101, Mr. Pambid talked about the basic do's and don'ts of beautifying our houses for the season.

Mr. Jie Pambid starts the talk.
This is my first time to have attended a seminar about interior designing. I'm glad that I was able to take it from an expert like Mr. Jie Pambid. He told us to decorated every room in our house. Yup, including the bathroom. It is the time of the year where people can go overboard with decors and get away with it. He suggested for us to invest in the Christmas tree, garlands, wreaths, and the traditional Filipino parol. The exterior and the foyer should contain minimal decors as they provide a teaser of what the interior is like. We should not neglect the hallways too, a simple garland on a wall could do the trick. The living room should have the grandiose decorations of all. 

As for the colors, he said to only have up to three colors. There are a lot of colors of Christmas: green, red, gold, silver, white, and even unconventional ones like black, violet, and copper. The decors of Christmas tree, such as balls and candies, should have the same colors as the room.  As for the Christmas lights, it would be better to have only a single color in either steady or fading motion. In a designer's point of view, it is not advisable to get a myriad of colors with fast blinking lights and matching music. 

After the talk, we had a short glimpse about Hello Kitty for the home as displayed in the Interior Zone lobby.
