Two for Tuesday

Christmas ornaments, how much variety there is at Incredible Christmas Place!  We could never limit ourselves to only traditional colors and styles, that would be no fun for you or for us.  We’re always going to show what’s new, different, and fun for your Christmas tree.

My first favorite today is a [taupe fur poinsettia] with gold glitter balls and a touch of gold glitter on the petals.  (I know, the glitter is a surprise…not.  It’s me.)  It’s mounted on a spring with a clip at the end, so easy to clip into your tree for a subtle sparkle.

In our never-ending quest to offer every [bird ornament] that was ever conceived by a Christmas designer, here’s a cutie!  [Iced white cardinal], sort of bristle-y but with tail feathers, and such a sweet look.  Warning: he’s just a little bit shed-y on everything.  He’s also on a clip, so you can attach him to the perfect branch with ease and convenience.

Here’s a peak at the tree on which we used that taupe poinsettia, our 2016 Misty Lake theme.  I have more pictures coming, because we have the most beautiful ornaments working on this tree, too, along with that amazing, 4′ strand of 480 lights.  You remember that gorgeous bunny, too – see him right there in the middle?  There’s a deer head at the top, if you can distinguish it.  So much going on with this tree!  Do you like a natural look for your Christmas tree?

Take a moment and find two things to love about your Tuesday, too!

P.S.  Exciting weekend!  It’s finally here, our [Department 56] artist signing weekend.  Saturday, November 5th, from 2 to 5 p.m., both an artist and a village designer will be here, so come and claim your signed house, and take home some new design ideas for your own 2016 village display.

Thursday Things To Love – Christmas Decorations in a Country Theme

You know I used to do “Two for Tuesday” – but I could hardly ever keep it to just two .. so I’m doing “Thursday Things” instead – and I can show as many things to love as I want with no guilt!  Here are some of my favorite things from around the store this week.  I’m a fan of the homespun, country style of Christmas decorations that we are showcasing in the Christmas Gallery – and of course, there’s so much more than I can show in one post.

Have you seen the wide variety available in these frosted glass lamps?  Softly painted winter and Christmas themes decorate several shapes and styles of vases and lamps, each lamp filled with a strand of mini lights.  They will add a warm glow to any corner of your holiday home.  These are priced to make wonderful Christmas gifts, too!

The Ginger Cottage “Elf Academy” ornament is decorated on the board inside with all the things the accomplished elf must master to fulfill his or her full potential at the North Pole!  Reindeer names, reindeer games, toy categories, food groups – every topic is covered in this little school house.  Light the ornament by placing it over one the mini bulbs on your Christmas tree, through a little hole in the floor.  We love the frosty snow coating added to each little building.

A prophetic pillow that really says it all….

Christmas pillow reads "When you stop believing in Santa you get underwear," and a large snowman head decoration.

Burlap is still going strong for the homespun holiday look – birds, balls, poinsettias, ribbon, and more, in all the colors of Christmas.  We love the country look, as it welcomes many textures and translations for celebrating the most wonderful time of the year.

More “country” textures – galvanized tin walls, chicken-wire windows, cotton blooms, barnwood wall art, and a carved stag head – we’ve layered it all on for a fun take on the theme!

Galvanized metal walls with chicken-wire window pains on top make for a multilayered, textured  display of whimsical barn wall art.

Classic red barnwood walls are the perfect backdrop for a pair of gorgeous wreaths from our Floral Design team.

So many themes to show you, and only thirty-one Thursdays until Christmas!  If there’s a favorite theme you’d like to see, be sure to let me know in the comments and I’ll make sure it’s covered.

P.S. If you’re planning to be in Pigeon Forge on Memorial Day or the following week, don’t miss our Memorial Week Tent Sale!  We don’t do this every year, so come and get a fast start on decorations for 2016 and save a little money while you’re doing it.

Two for Tuesday

Okay, I have two for this Tuesday, and barely five minutes ago I spotted a customer carrying one of my two for next Tuesday, already!  And the warehouse has been overwhelmed this week with incoming boxes of bright and shiny NEW that I just can’t wait to see and share with you.

I just love the artistry of these wonderful ornamental birds, painted with Christmas sayings.   There are three Canada goose poses, both standing and sitting, and different sayings.

Christmas Redbird

Christmas Swan

Just beautiful, and they would be noticed anywhere around the house at Christmas – on a side table, a mantle, tucked onto an open shelf.

There are treasures everywhere you turn in the store!  (Thank goodness we have a lot of turning space…)
