    go overboard on/with

    go overboard informal
    : to do something in a way that is excessive or extreme : to do too much of something
    - Don't go overboard on/with the spices. [=do not add too many spices]
    - She went overboard with the decorations.

    Is it correct to say "She went overboard on the decorations"?
