LUBBOCK, TX--(Marketwire - August 30, 2010) -  Trying to make room in the garage for the Christmas decorations and the new lawn mower? Before you spend too much time and energy trying to make more room, you may want to consider your holiday plans.

"It may not seem like the holidays are around the corner, but now is the perfect time to make your décor plans and perhaps find an alternative to storing your own holiday decorations," says Brandon Stephens, vice president of marketing for Christmas Decor, Inc.

The experts at Christmas Decor suggest calling now before the weather turns cool and more residential and commercial customers start booking professional designers to create holiday magic.

"Our services are becoming more and more popular because our newest program includes everything from design and installation all the way through takedown and storage," says Stephens.

Professional decor companies like Christmas Decor are attractive to both residential and business clients because they offer the complete package, including design, custom installation, proactive maintenance, convenient takedown and storage services.

"Many people are frustrated with the hassle associated with holiday decorating," Stephens explains. "We handle everything -- from start to finish." That may sound like an attractive -- and safer -- alternative to untangling light strands, unpacking wreaths and storing expensive decorations in the damp cellar or garage.

In 2004, it was estimated that Americans spent $8 billion on Christmas and holiday decorations. Even through the recent recession, Americans continue to enjoy the atmosphere provided by holiday decorating.

It seems this year will be no different as schedules for the 2010 holiday season are filling up fast with Christmas Decor professionals. "Our schedules do tend to fill up quickly. To optimize your holiday setup and installation, I would suggest you contact your local decorator early so they can get you booked and set up now," Stephens suggests.
