So, usually right after Halloween we get started on flipping the store for Christmas. Our opinion is that as a retail store, we have to do this early because every other store is and and we have to be timely and competitive. As well, it takes a ton of time and we want to enjoy it as long as possible. On top of that, we truly believe that you can be just as thankful at Thanksgiving with or without your decorations out!
So, with that said, let us show you what we did! First, we each gathered up one of our sons and put them to work helping us move furniture! Thankfully, they are great helpers.
We like to move most pieces into different rooms. For one, customers can see it in a different light or sometimes notice it for the first time! And we usually have a plan for each room and certain pieces work better than others.
Once we have all the furniture situated, and believe me, that can be subject to change, we get started with the fun part. We begin by gathering all our Christmas decor into one space and then step back and think, "Oh. My. Word." It looks like a huge mess, but with time it all gets a great spot! We started on a Sunday afternoon and worked through the week until our Open House that Thursday evening. Lots of hours, cups of coffee, and frustrations, but in the end, we always love the result!
Enjoy looking through pictures of our favorite rooms and vignettes!
We hope you enjoyed the pictures! Come in soon to see everything in person. We are happy to help you put together a look for your home, whether it's your mantle or a total room redo!
