The story of Celebrating Home is simple yet significant. It's about home, heart and heritage. It was about providing the right product along with a shopping, entertaining and decorating experience perfectly suited to every lifestyle. It was about living the life you love, loving what you do for a living, exploring new opportunities and celebrating what's inside of you. It was about forming fast and lasting friendships and belonging to a true family of Designers who care about your success.

It had a new story, yet it was lovingly shared for over sixty years. True story! We had blended the “the best of the best” in the direct selling industry – Home & Garden Party and Home Interiors & Gifts – to form Celebrating Home and the strongest and single most supportive and empowering career opportunity for women today. We shared the largest family of Designers ever. Together we created our story – simply, the most significant story ever told!

Review our Founders' Legacy below to learn more about what makes Celebrating Home the company that every woman can believe in and be a part of today … from the beginning!

Our legacy

It's the "best of the best."

Home & Garden Party

Home & Garden Party was founded in 1996 by Penny and Steve Carlile, whose mission was to create a business where women could obtain the “American Dream” by bringing families and friends together through their entertaining and decorating accessories. Headquartered in Marshall, Texas, Home & Garden Party enabled thousands of women across the United States to earn extra income, have fun and make friends while working from home as Home & Garden Party Designers.


Home Interiors & Gifts

Mary Crowley founded Home Interiors & Gifts in 1957 in Dallas, Texas. Her dream was to provide a career opportunity for women that would enhance their lives through decorating the homes and lives of others. She made her dream come true by building a small hostess-plan home accessory line into the largest direct seller of home decorative accessories in the United States, with over 100,000 Decorating Consultants in America.

Celebrating Home

In 2008, Penny and Steve Carlile acquired Home Interiors & Gifts. They established Celebrating Home in early 2009 – blending “the best of the best” to create the strongest and single most supportive and empowering career opportunity for women. Along with an unsurpassed business opportunity, Celebrating Home offered a unique combination of the very best entertaining and decorating products, training, compensation and marketing support in the direct selling industry.

Celebrating Home offered all this and more as we held true to our roots – our foundation was based on dignity, integrity, loyalty and truth; Christian principles true today in an ever-changing marketplace – while evolving to help designers grow their business. Celebrating Home was located in Marshall, Texas.


Message from the company

Celebrating Home, was our nation’s largest party-plan home décor company. 

Celebrating Home was built on the foundation of two industry icons, Home & Garden Party and Home Interiors & Gifts. 

The shared foundational values between these two companies was extraordinary and made the coming together a natural integration.

Like you, we shared a passion for the home.  We believed that the home is the center of the family and the woman is the center of the home.  When we helped one woman change her life, we changed a home and when we changed a home, we changed a family; when we changed a family, we changed a community and when we changed a community, we changed the world…one woman at a time. 

The strength of Celebrating Home lied in our Designers…high-energy, talented women focused on providing people from all walks of life, solutions to all their decorating and entertaining needs. 

But the best thing about Celebrating Home was the amazing earnings opportunity that we provided to thousands of families around the country.  Celebrating Home provided an environment for women to earn extra income, have fun and receive the recognition they deserved.
