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.

No, we will never get sick of jars! These look great with glitter on the bottom, on the top, in a chevron pattern or however you imagine them. Place one or two small flowers (real or faux) or a flameless candle to add a little mood lighting in a window or on a dining room table.

Whether you have extra scrapbook paper and twine laying around or just have standard white paper and fishing line, this DIY project can work. Write a message, greeting or Noel and cut the letters out in triangles, stars or other shapes and string along a bookcase, mantel or wall for instant seasonal style.

Get the kids and grandkids involved by letting them create their own ornaments, paper garland and other decorations. They will make a whimsical addition to your seasonal home accents, and you will make memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Use what you can find outside, at a flower shop or at a local farmer’s market. Pine boughs, pinecones, sticks and other natural plants and objects can create a rustic look to complement the coziness of the season. Simply spread them out in a centerpiece, on a mantel or get crafty and create shapes, personal arrangements and more.

In addition to stylish decor and country home furnishings, we hope your home is filled with warmth, love and happiness this season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
