Biggest Little Christmas Showdown – a Mini Mele Kalikimaka Christmas!


BIG congratulations to Amanda Kelly from Pandaminiatures and her team partner (and fiance!) Bree Sepulveda for their awesome WIN on the first episode on the Biggest Little Christmas Showdown on HGTV which aired on Friday, November 27 on HGTV!

The teams were challenged to build against the Mele Kalikimaka - a Hawaiian Christmas and Team Yellow created this awesome pontoon boat/tiki bar/beach scene.

Their pontoon boat was filled with tiny details like tiny leis, a tiki bar lined with coconut drinks with tiny umbrellas and bar stools topped with metal soda pop lids! There was a crazy amount of detail which helped this team lead, but it was their unique interpretation of the theme that won the hearts of the judges - great work!

Tiny napkins and tiny ginger bread ladies adorned high top tables which completed the bar scene!

The competition was stiff - Team Greg and Katie created an "Aloha Abode" featuring a spiral staircase and mega mini palm tree.

Mother/daughter team Tracy and Renee's "Family Beach House" was filled with comfy tiny throw pillows and a koi pond water feature which was an an interior designer's dream home in miniature.

Here is a video recap of all the awesome work from the episode!


The Biggest Little Christmas Showdown is a fun, quirky, reality-based four-part series premiering on Friday, November 27th at 9pm ET/PT on #HGTV.
