Betting on a Better Holiday Rising Star Casino Hits the Jackpot with Baker Design Group Christmas Design Services
Determined to deliver their customers an unparalleled holiday experience this Christmas, Rising Star Casino and Resort has partnered with Linda Baker of Baker Design Group, Christmas Design Services to transform the casino and hotel into a whimsical, winter wonderland guaranteed to dazzle and delight. With a national reputation for their Christmas decorating flair, Baker Design Group creates exceptional artistic designs for discriminating clientele who want their holiday designs to stand out in a commercial environment. The Dallas-based professional Christmas designers have crafted an original, winning concept for Rising Star Casino and Resort that customers have not seen before, already on its way to completion.
The BDG Christmas Design team, led by Heather Mattox, created a design signature palette of lush Christmas décor exclusively for Rising Star, including an extraordinary 20-ft. theme Christmas tree that will greet visitors walking through the enormous entry into the atrium area. The showstopping holiday design – which incorporates an imaginative 12 Days of Christmas theme – features a special design for each day and is a sure bet to banish all bah-humbugs.
In an unprecedented union, Baker Design Group aligned with world renowned mechanical genius Lou Nasti to create a truly magical, one-of-a-kind display, complete with the mechanized creations for which he is known. There are plans for five animated scenes featuring the Mark Roberts Fairies getting ready for Christmas. The scenes
include hundreds of handmade props, along with more than 50 Mark Roberts’ elves, bears, deer, squirrels and raccoons that will each be customized and animated.
On the grand staircase landing of the riverboat casino, a theme Hot Air Balloon Mark Roberts Fairy Tree will include live animated waving fairies, a hot air balloon basket as the base and over-sized clustered ornamentation at the top, resembling a hot air balloon. Fully decorated lit garlands will swoop on all staircase railings to create a very grand, lush and festive environment.
Nasti, owner and operator of the Brooklyn-based Mechanical Displays Inc., has designed manufactured and installed custom animated characters, scenes, window displays and POS attractions for more than 40 years. His inimitable displays, which combine movement, sound, lighting and countless details, can be found all over the world, from Macy’s and Park Avenue Plaza in New York City to the castle for the King of Morocco. BDG’s timeless Christmas designs complement Nasti’s whimsical animations in a captivating combination that is a must-see at Rising Star Casino and Resort this holiday season.
With some designs taking up to a year from concept to fruition, Baker Design Group is not an ordinary Christmas decorating company. With exclusive clientele in Texas and expanding to other areas of the United States, Baker and her team create some of the most stunning Christmas design products in the industry. Many premiere companies, hospitals, churches, luxury car dealers and bankers have benefited from Baker’s unique designs and concepts that truly cater to their customers and employees. Even the Grapevine Convention and Visitor’s Center depends on Baker’s association and leadership to maintain its title as “The Christmas Capital of Texas.”
Of the more than half-dozen casinos and resorts in the Tri-State area, Rising StarCasino and Resort is the only one upping the ante with a Christmas design plan of this magnitude already in the works for this holiday season. With Nasti’s inventive animated creations accompanying BDG’s distinct and enchanting Christmas designs in a wonderful winter setting, odds of a spectacular visit are favorable for guests of Rising Star Resort and Casino this holiday season.
