Decking the Halls

November 9

On what might have been the warmest day of the week, what was I doing?  Decorating for Christmas of course!  It was pretty funny that while we were working feverishly to decorate Alice-Louise Press with holiday festivity…we were actually feeling feverish due to the heat!  No complaints, however…I got to enjoy a beautiful day while decorating for the most festive season with my good friends AND with the shop windows wide open!  Not a bad Monday!  And by the end of the day the store was transformed into a holiday wonderland…filled with unique gifts, holiday cards and invites, and decorations to get your home ready for the season!  Take a peek at the magic…

Christmas has arrived…

to help with the displays is one of my most favorite things to do…it’s always such a great day despite the fact that it really is quite a bit of work!  and even though we rip the shop to pieces in the beginning,  as we rearrange, open all the boxes of new goodies, and add holiday touches, we can slowly see the new vignettes coming to life right before our eyes!  it’s so much fun!  so this year the shop has a bit of a homespun feel…a little nostalgic and classic–simply Christmas!
