Dripping in Christmas-ey Bling!!

Hello, friendly friends!  I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving and black Friday if you attempted to venture out into the madness.

Every black Friday my mom and I avoid the crazyness and head to some local shops to check out their Christmas decor.  

This has become a fun tradition and it's much better than sleeping in a tent outside Best Buy!  If you're wondering what I'm talking about read this post here. :)

We visit a local garden shop that also carries a fabulous selection of home decor.  They decorate every square inch of the store, it is dripping in Christmas-ey bling! 

They have wonderful vignettes set up everywhere and I get the best ideas.  The prices are a little steep for my Chic on a Shoestring budget but the inspiration is free!

I took several pictures which really don't do this place justice. I had my little point and shoot camera and the flourescent lighting didn't help but hopefully you'll get the idea.

A beautiful and blingy upside down Christmas tree.

I wish I would've gotten a better picture of the above vignette.  There are beautiful icicle like ornaments hanging down over the mirror from a greenery swag.  And the mirror and console table are fabulous!  These were part of the upside down Christmas tree display, just beautiful! 

This was also part of the upside down Christmas tree display, very blingy and fabulous. :)

Would love to try and make this wreath!

Love that there are 2 trees in this pot!

So cute, I am loving reindeer this year!

I am a sucker for cloches!

Another lovely vignette.

This green and white theme is so pretty!

 The fantastic flocked tree, part of the green and white themed dislay.

I could've posted one hundred pictures of this shop and still not capture all the fantastic details.  We spent over an hour there and each time I walked through an area I would find something new (and it's not a very large store!)

I hope you enjoyed my blingy Christmas tour!

Where do you go for inspiration??  (besides Pinterest!) :)


  1. LOVE the upside down Christmas tree!!! It was my intention to make two of them this year to put up in the corners of our living room, but sadly I haven't been able to find all the supplies I need in time. Next year!!!
    I think they are so stunning with all the big ornaments they allow you to display!

  2. Ohh, this tour was just many beautiful ideas...thanks for sharing!

  3. Beautiful pictures! What a great idea for Black Friday.

  4. Love the photos! Thank you for the inspiration, as always it's a great pleasure visiting you. Have a wonderful day.<3

  5. I used to spend hours at Macy's when I lived in NYC..they have a tree decorated in every theme one can think of. That was many years ago..I try to work with what I have and perhaps buy just a couple of new things to add each is the older ornaments and other items that hold the memories of Christmases past and I try to work the new items in with the old. This store looks like it is drenched in Christmas goodness.

  6. I love the photos. What more could a girl ask for..Great Christmas decor and bling!!I would love for you to share it at my "Anything Goes" Linky party...
