Monday Must-Haves: Early Holiday 2018

Monday, September 17th, 2018

That’s right – the holiday season has arrived at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. But we won’t bombard you with Santas and snowmen just yet; these must-haves are still all about the harvest season.

Now you don’t have decided between a welcome sign and a seasonal wreath. The preserved wreath surrounding the charming sentiment on this wall art features corn husk, yellow yarrow, safflower and chili peppers.

Another must-have is our Leafy Shade Iron Table Lamp. This sleek, simple and complementary lighting solution is topped with a decorative shade with preserved leaves pressed onto the paper.

Last but certainly not least is the Turkey Gourd Tealight Holder. These handcrafted gourd accents are always fun for autumn and Thanksgiving decorating, since they offer a natural, seasonal and rustic look to displays and centerpieces. As always, use a flameless tealight with this turkey; he’s made of real dried gourds after all. And if you would like to get a behind-the-scenes look on the creation of these characters, click here.

Monday Must-Haves: Fall 2018 Pumpkins

Monday, August 27th, 2018

These five must-have home accents celebrate the harvest season in the same way: with pumpkins!

Our newest braided table runner features three pumpkins, decorative bittersweets and rich harvest colors for a table or countertop. As always, the reverse side of this home accent is without the pumpkins so you can decorate your home with these colorful braids all year long. Another indoor pumpkin home accent is the Pumpkin Bird Hooked Wool Pillow, which offers a beautiful color palette with deep and light hues – and we can’t forget about the charming little bird perched on top of the pumpkin!

Although summer is coming to an end that doesn’t mean all of our time will be spent indoors, so add a couple of outdoor home accents that complement the season and the actual pumpkins you will likely be displaying on a front porch or stoop. Our Pumpkin Garden collection features vibrant, detailed imagery designed by artist Susan Winget, and the Three Pumpkins Garden Flag Stake is the perfect way to display the garden flag.
