CasaQ by Darlene ornaments are hand-picked by Dr. Christmas to deck-out celebrity Mario Lopez’s family Christmas tree for TLC holiday special airing on Friday, December 12 at 9:00pm

CasaQ's fine glass ornament collection with a Latino flair has found the perfect home, thanks to Dr. Christmas' over-the-top holiday decorating business. Since 1984, Dr. Christmas aka Bob Pranga and his partner Debi Staron have been transforming homes into fabulous winter wonderlands for Hollywood’s elite such as Bob Hope, Andy Garcia, Christina Aguilera, Kate Hudson, Shaquille O'Neal, Whoopi Goldberg and Kris Kardashian, amongst others.

This year TLC will air a star-studded special, Deck the Halls with Dr. Christmas, taking viewers inside former Saved by the Bell teenage heartthrob and Extra host Mario Lopez’s Spanish colonial estate beautifully decorated with fine art and furnishings, reflective of his Latino cultural roots. When transforming a home into a sparkling holiday fantasy, the Dr. Christmas team searches the world for fabulous decor that blends perfectly with their client's personal style and home furnishings.

"When we saw CasaQ ornaments, we knew they would be a perfect fit for Mario Lopez's family home," said Bob Pranga, "because each design created by Darlene Tenes celebrates the love and pride he has for his rich Mexican heritage."

The CasaQ ornament collection features Frida Kahlo, Pan Dulce, Aztec Calendar and other symbolic treasures that celebrate the Latino culture. Each individually hand-painted fine glass ornament comes in a luxury gift box with a legend card that shares the history or symbolism behind the design.

“I am very excited to have my Christmas ornaments on Mario's family tree,” says Darlene Tenes CasaQ founder and designer. “Many of my designs reflect his and my shared Mexican Catholic traditions and I hope they will become treasured heirlooms for his family.”

The "Deck the Halls with Dr. Christmas" special, also including home transformations for former Dancing with the Stars winner and co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet and Days of Our Lives alum and Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney, will air on TLC, Friday, December 12 at 6:00 and 9:00pm PST and Saturday, December 13 at 9:00am PST.
