Christmas in October

LaDonna Womochel

It seems awfully early to think about Christmas in October, but the Robson Ranch Women’s Club is going to help you get started thinking about how to decorate your home for the holidays. Make your plans to enjoy lunch with your Robson neighbors and watch Sharon Swain, a skilled designer from the Holiday Warehouse, create a decorated Christmas tree from the ground up.

The luncheon and demonstration will occur on Oct. 4, in the Robson Ranch Clubhouse (the doors open at 11 a.m. and lunch is served at 11:30 a.m.). If you haven’t joined the Women’s Club, here is a good reason to sign up.

Sharon Swain has been working as a holiday designer for nearly 30 years, creating retail displays and hospitality installations. Each year, her staff decorates over 100 of the most beautiful homes in the metroplex. She creates a signature design, whether it be for a 30,000 square feet mansion or a window display in a retail store.

Since joining the Holiday Warehouse in 2014, Sharon has inspired many patrons to create beautiful designs for their homes. She has shared her knowledge by teaching classes on how to use the products available in the store and to stimulate new ideas for decorating. During her presentation, she will provide a step-by-step guide to tree decorating. She will explain the mechanics of the process and share some tricks of the trade. Please make your reservations for lunch and get professional advice from a great designer.

In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, the Holiday Warehouse will be providing door prizes. The Holiday Warehouse is providing a gift basket valued at $250 and three $200 gift cards. What a nice holiday surprise!

The charity for the October luncheon is the Friends of the Family.

To join us at this meeting, please make your reservations by the deadline of noon, Sept. 28. You can drop your $19 check made out to the RRWC in the White Mailbox in the Women’s Lounge of the Cimarron Sports Center, or pay using PayPal. To do so, go to the RRWC website at
