Weekly Spotlight: Shop Our Holiday Cover(s)

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

By now our first two Holiday catalogs have reached you, and we hope you’ve enjoyed browsing our new home accents to get ready for the holiday season. Today, we are spotlighting our first two covers and the five items taking up this impressionable space.

Harvest / Fall / Thanksgiving

Tom & Goody Gobbler are back this year, in their same whimsical spirit and cheerful colors. Designed by artist Lori Mitchell, Tom & Goody are welcome (re)additions to our selection of collectibles.

◊ The Maple Leaves & Berries Wreath is a new addition to our all-natural selection of greenery, featuring a half-exposed grapevine base for an even more natural look on a wall or door this autumn.

Winter / Holiday / Christmas

◊ These glass accent lights are becoming a customer favorite, and it is easy to see why. The decorative element paired with a source of light makes it a sight to behold day or night. The SYW exclusive Snowy Drive Accent Light on the cover features a vintage red truck hauling an evergreen tree towards home; the snowy imagery is quite realistic.

◊ Also featured are two 18″H Lighted Feather Trees, which have bendable branches and burlap bases. These are perfect for decorating a table, bench or other surface of your home during the holidays, and as they come pre-lit, there are no tangled string lights to deal with (more sizes available).

◊ Finally, decorating the trees are Glass Ball Ornaments, which come as a set of twelve. Inspired by vintage ornaments, these crackled mercury glass renditions in silver, gold, red and green are perfect for decorating your tree in holiday cheer.

Soft sculptures can make a big seasonal statement in a small amount of space. Prop on a staircase, a rustic bench, a kitchen counter or chair for festive style that doesn’t overwhelm.
