2010 Holiday Ideas - Decorations


Here's the first of hopefully many more Circus Daily holiday gift list extravaganzas to come.  Figured I'd start by focusing on decorations.  Showcasing a few "hidden gems" which should help us into that it-comes-just-once-a-year spirit.

For our home we try to mix traditional with retro.  Keeping things light, fresh, and fun. Never too stuffy and overly ornate.  We only have two rules...or guidelines if you will.

1.  Decorations "unhibernate" every 3rd Friday of November.
2.  We don't take our mistletoe lightly.    

We also have a vintage Christmas wreath in our family.  However, just because it's in the family does not necessarily mean it's in our home, which needless to say makes it much coveted item between my sister and I.  And, although our tree comes from Mother Nature herself, I'm liking the idea of a toddler-slash-baby-slash-eco friendly wall decal for the boys room more and more.  

1.  Felted Wool Acorn Ornaments  2.  Personalized Reindeer Ornaments  3.  Where We Met Ornament  4.  Santa's Keys  5.  Muslin Cloth Advent Calendar  6.  Baby's First Christmas  7.  Eco Friendly Retro Ornaments  8.  Wooden Nativity Scene  9.  Vintage Kitsch Wreath   10.  Christmas Tree Decal  11.  DIY Matryoshka Advent Calendar   12. Mistletoe Kisses Card   

until next time - ABCD

What a fantastic collection you've assembled! I can't wait to see your future ideas. I've only had time to check one of the stores out so far - Mae w/ the eco-friendly fabric decals. I am IN LOVE. They are so adorable. I know my current decals are toxic and I want to replace them. Can't wait to check out the other shops soon.

I love the reindeer and the acorns.
But stay away from the wreath.
LOL
