These Local Holiday Decorators Deck the Halls of Dallas

If you're overwhelmed with your holiday decorations, here's who to hire in Dallas for help.

Between the soft glow cast by strands of strung twinkle lights, the sentimental swell that comes from hanging childhood ornaments on the tree, and the extra smooches swapped under a sprig of mistletoe, it’s no wonder people rush to deck their halls before December even hits. If you’re looking for some holiday cheer in the form of festive household decor, Dallas has no shortage of shops filled with trimmings and trappings to make your home merry. But if decorating isn’t your bag, make like Santa and hire some helpers who’ll do the hard work for you. Whether you prefer a sophisticated silver-and-gold scheme or you prefer your interiors to look like a southern satellite of the North Pole, your winter wonderland wishes are their commands. 


Grab and Glow

The most in-the-know holiday decorators have a secret weapon, a spot up north where they’re able to fill Santa sacks with finery all year long: Plano’s Holiday Warehouse. The 30,000-square-foot store has everything you could possibly have on your “nice” list—exclusive pre-lit trees, fanciful garlands in every hue, an abundance of ornaments, colorful strings of LED lights, stockings and tree skirts in a flurry of fabrics, and so much more. Hoping to make the neighbors green with envy but crave a more curated selection? Look to interior design firm Dunbar Road, which, for the fourth year in a row, is offering a holiday collection of faux wreaths and garlands. The designs include nods to Telluride; Palm Beach; and Jane Austen–era Essex, England.


Tree Service

’Tis the season to be jolly, but for those who want someone else to bring the boughs of holly, you’re in luck. Dallas-based Baker Design Group has a team of designers who provide a free in-home consultation and then create a concept that complements your home design and budget. Bonus: If the holidays sneak up on you, they also offer Christmas In A Box all year round. 

Navy Blooms’ owner Keely Vendig specializes in mixing your decor with new finds for your tabletop, mantels, banisters, trees, exterior, and anything else needing a bit of holiday magic. A word to the wise: Vendig’s client list fills up fast, so make note to sign up for a consult in mid-June if you’re not already a client.

Billy Milner is another highly in-demand and highly worth-it Christmas miracle (see his work in “Seasonal Blend,” beginning on page 40 of our November-December issue). The stylist will happily add a big dose of cheer to your entire home—inside and out—and even come by to take it all down when the party’s over. Milner’s enthusiasm also adds a little something extra to his ho-ho-haute displays.

We’ve already sung the praises of the sheer volume of good stuff at Holiday Warehouse, but if you don’t have the time or the patience to select stocking hangers and tree toppers, they have a team who will deliver a turnkey wintry mix.
