Throwback Thursday: Holiday 2018 Blog Wrap-Up

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

Saying goodbye to the holiday season – and our Holiday Catalog – is so bittersweet. We are excited for our Winter 2019 selection of home accents, but will certainly miss the warm glow of the harvest season, turkey at Thanksgiving, and all the prep and pomp that goes into Christmas and the last holidays of the year. Which is why we looked back on all of our Holiday 2018 blog posts (from the middle of September to now) and selected ten to feature in our final Wrap-Up of 2018. If there was a blog post – recipe, Quick Tip, DIY project, etc. – that made an impression on you, let us know in a comment.
