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.

Weekly Spotlight: Halloween 2018

Wednesday, September 5th, 2018

If you have shopped our catalog or website you know we have Halloween fever – and although our Fall/Halloween catalog isn’t here for long, it is full of charm and style. Today we are spotlighting Halloween items that will make this October 31st the most decorative one yet. And since we couldn’t quite narrow our selection down to five, we’ve included a bonus sixth item to Spotlight. Let’s get into it.

Dog & Cat Trick or Treaters Pillow | Mary Lake Thompson | Sturbridge Yankee WorkshopThese two pillows each bring something different to your festive home. Artist Mary Lake Thompson designed the one on the left, which features a dog and a cat all dressed up for trick-or-treating. This pillow is soft enough for your indoor furniture and fade resistant in outdoor spaces. The hooked wool pillow below should only be placed indoors, but its simple design allows the seasonal message and imagery to shine.

Lighting that sets a spooky mood is always a great addition to Halloween displays, and since we are in the midst of our Lighting Sale, now is a great time to browse our Halloween lighting. For example, our Halloween Tin Luminaries, Witch & Cauldron Lantern Light, Haunted House Accent Light and Fiona Witch Gourd Tealight Holder all offer different ways to illuminate your [haunted] house. Whether you prefer a light that plugs in, runs on batteries or is lit up with a candle, you’ll find the perfect spooky lighting solution in our catalog.
