Hispanic holiday ornament collection will be shown for the first time at the New York International Gift Fair® August 15-20, 2009

CasaQ, a San Jose-based Hispanic lifestyle company, will debut its exclusive Latin-themed ornament collection at the New York International Gift Fair® at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center from Saturday, August 15 to Thursday, Aug. 20, 2009.

Less than two years ago, first-time ornament designer Darlene Tenes designed two hand-painted glass ornaments which sparked an immediate interest from the Latin GRAMMY Awards, who called and asked for them to be featured in their official celebrity gift baskets. They had only seen pictures of the designs, which were not available in stores yet. The ornaments were finished, fedexed and made it into the hands of celebrities just in time for the show.

Since then CasaQ Ornaments have received much press because of their intricate and beautiful designs which have been given as gifts at numerous celebrity driven events such as People en Español's Christmas Party, CBS' A Home for the Holidays TV Special and American Music Awards Gift Suite.

The CasaQ Ornament Collection includes exclusive designs such as Our Lady of Guadalupe, La Catrina, Star Piñata, and many more symbolic treasures that reflect the Hispanic culture. Each design comes in a cloth-covered box with its own legend card describing the symbolism or history behind the ornament.

The complete CasaQ Ornament Collection can be seen in New York at Homemade - Level One, Booth 6501 or online at
