It’s such an exciting time of year! xo, Jennifer Reply firstname.lastname@example.org on November 18, 2009 at 2:05 am I have always thought of Kathie Lee as a class act, glad you had day with her…what book did she give you? That was really nice, no matter what, she did not have to do that…classy all the way… Regards, from Canada (Carol Ann) Reply Kathy on November 18, 2009 at 2:23 am Her home looks amazing and so does she. What a wonderful opportunity for you to meet and decorate her home for the holidays, so cool! Reply NenaghGal on November 18, 2009 at 2:39 am Sounds like fun Eddie and don’t you know, celebrities are just like the rest of us and many are down to earth and lovely.

She looks like she would be a blast to hang out with…then again so do you 🙂 Reply Susie on November 18, 2009 at 10:12 am I’m so excited to see the show. I have always liked Kathie Lee and thought she got a bad wrap in the press. She’s funny, kind and has a big heart.

Usually you only hear the negative about famous people. I can’t wait for the program to air, and I’m dying to know what that “book” was.

Reply Angie Peck on November 20, 2009 at 2:19 pm From what I have seen in the past, Kathie Lee Gifford has always had the most gorgeous homes. I cannot wait what you have done. I am going to copy the ornaments above for the tree on my front porch. The plaids and checks are perfect for what I am doing out there. So, thank you for that inspiration. I can’t wait for the special. Thanks again! Reply Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality on November 21, 2009 at 8:19 pm Oh, fun, Eddie! I’ve always liked Kathie Lee & this sounds like a great show. I’ll be watching. Happy Thanksgiving to you & Jaithan!

Reply April R. on December 5, 2009 at 6:25 pm I will surely be watching. I already have my DVR set up. I KNOW it will be wonderful. When I was looking at this month’s House Beautiful and saw the holiday table setting. I thought that was definately something I would love to do, it was so pretty and whimsical…. and then I saw you did it. It all made sense.. it was perfect! -April Reply Victoria Zlotkowski on December 5, 2009 at 7:28 pm Hope it’s aired another time, since I am out tonight…. 🙁 Reply Ruth on December 5, 2009 at 9:57 pm I have written it on my calender as a reminder!

Well, I wasn’t completely sure it was you until I went home and checked your blog (I was a bout 98% sure, you were with Jaithan and I kept thinking either that’s them or there are some good look-a-likes in California)! Now I’m so sad that I didn’t sign up for your group shopping trip! Please come back to SF for another shopping trip so I can come this time!—on a side note, I did get some amazing stuff today, including a vintage sunburst mirror for $5! Reply Lori on December 6, 2009 at 4:59 pm Can’t wait to see it! Reply raechel on December 6, 2009 at 8:05 pm Watching it in Scottsdale now! Nice to see you on camera instead of print for a change. Happy Holidays! Reply debra phillips on December 6, 2009 at 8:44 pm just finished watching your show eddie……..of course yours was my favorite! loved in particular the icicle garland you made, “shirt” ornaments and candy table. amazing eddie how you pulled together the colors and elements of kathie lee’s home to glorious effect. congrats! xxo debra Reply Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality on December 6, 2009 at 9:01 pm Eddie, I just finished the show!! You did a fab job, as usual. I knew you would nail it and you did. Loved your men’s shirt ornaments…how cool those were!! Maybe you’ll do a post on them, they were really unique and fun. Glad Kathy Lee loved everything, how could she NOT?!! xoxo Reply Brighton on December 6, 2009 at 9:11 pm Eddie- I loved what you did, and I am SO stealing the shirt-ornament idea : ) Beautiful as always! Reply Victoria on December 6, 2009 at 10:09 pm Wow, love your splendid idea with the shirts made into ornaments…FUN! Kathy Lee was really taken! Nice job! Reply Wendy on December 6, 2009 at 11:25 pm LOVED the show. You were fab – as always! Hi the NY Flea Markets on Saturday and thought of you and Jaithan. Merry Christmas – Wendy Reply kathysue on December 6, 2009 at 11:48 pm Eddie and Jaithan, I just had an amazing day with the two of you at Alameda in the cold. Then I got to come home to a nice warm home and watched you on HGTV. You did a fabulous job on KG’s home. You did just the right amount of decorating, not too much,just the right touches everywhere. Loved the mantle, the wreaths in the windows and two trees. All the color choices were perfect,nothing competing everything married so well to her home. Great Job!! I hope HGTV does more shows with you. Again, thank you for such a fun day in Alameda, xoxox to you and Jaithan Kathysue Reply janice on December 7, 2009 at 12:19 am Eddie – LOVED what you did in Kathie Lee’s home !!! LOVED, LOVED, LOVED everything… Looked like you were really enjoying yourself. I could tell Kathie Lee was thrilled, I’m sure you’ll be invited back time and time again. janice Reply Pat Smith on December 7, 2009 at 1:43 am Eddie, Your house was the fav in our house. Love the shirt balls, how easy is that? I can see that technique with any cloth. Not into candy (kids are hyper enough at Christmas without the sugar!) but the colors were wonderful. Reply Warren McClelland on December 7, 2009 at 10:40 am Hi Eddie! I watched the Celebrity show last night it was good. All of the designs were good. Honestly your design impressed me the most. Kathy Lee is a nice and straight forward person – she has good taste. Your design suited her home very well. The shirt fabric covered ornaments were unique. I loved those especially – I am going to use your ideas! Thanks Eddie. Ciao. Reply ralphie on December 7, 2009 at 9:23 pm Bravo! Reply Haute Decor Gal on December 10, 2009 at 3:05 pm She looks amazing by the way! Better than ever! Reply Pattie Zeman-Coviello on December 10, 2009 at 10:12 pm Eddie: You continue to impress and surprise! You were very instrumental over a year ago in my cousin Brian and Tina’s wedding in Greenwich, and I have been following you ever since (actually, I think I remember you from doing the centerpieces at Brian’s graduation party at Grass Island!). You are talented and wonderful, and you and Jaithan have the most beautiful surroundings! Keep up the good work and the inspiration for all of us! ~ Pattie Zeman-Coviello, Norwalk, CT Reply Anne in Rhode Island on February 1, 2010 at 10:33 am Eddie, I can’t believe how great your butler’s pantry looks, with such little change. Brilliant. What would you do with the mantle in an old 1880’s victorian dining room, stunning room, all quarter sawn oak, raised paneling, arts and craft kensington tiled mantle, inset tiffany window in chimney, w/ three tiers of shelves – georgeous but frou frou for my taste. Rest of room is clubby – I have huge navy brunschwig chairs, mahogany georgian furniture and old engravings layered above and on on the panels, a lovely 20’s sarouk but these mantle shelves are crying out for a stroke of genuis. any collector ideas? Any inspiring unusual mantle ideas? Reply mary storey on February 10, 2010 at 2:36 pm Dear Eddie, Please, PLEASE, give us step by step instructions for making the great christmas tree , and garland ornaments you made for Kathy Lee Gifford Reply Kathy Erwin on October 12, 2010 at 11:41 am Eddie, are you coming anywhere near Murray, KY which is on the KY/TN border about 80 miles from Nashville? Please let me know if you are, I’d love to see your ideas in person. You inspire me. Reply Missy Bruns on November 1, 2010 at 9:31 am Eddie & Kathie Lee- two of my favorite celebrities! Love getting the preview of this show. Kathie Lee went to ORU here in Tulsa- wish she still lived here. Would love to see you do an event in Tulsa! Thanks! Reply Diane @ home sweet homemade on November 29, 2010 at 5:49 pm Hi Eddie, I just happened to catch the broadcast last weekend and I was so excited! You were awesome and your simple and traditional holiday designs were absolutely fabulous. Can’t even tell you how much I loved it! Reply Kathy Melisko on December 10, 2010 at 10:30 pm Please please PLEASE tell us how to make the paper icicle garland you created for the Gifford’s mantle. I absolutely loved it! Getting to work on the plaid ornaments tomorrow. Thanks, Eddie, thanks for the fabulous work you do! Reply whitney edman on December 29, 2010 at 4:22 pm You make decorating fun! You could make any home look like a celebrity home Eddie! Keep up the great ideas and come visit us out west for goodness sakes! Oregon would love you and you would love Oregon! Can we decorate a cabin or two? 🙂 I’d love to with you! Whitney Edman Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
