September arrives with cooler temperatures and color changing foliage. These signals jumpstart the most exciting time of the year for the M.C. Twinklin’s elves. We’ve been planning all year, but September starts the unwrapping and decorating in preparation for our 2012 Grand Opening, September 29 and 30.
Our buying trips this season resulted in a successful blending of today’s fresher, more natural decorating trends with the glitz and glamour that our customers love. Let’s face it, everything in life seems better with a judicious application of glitter. Sparkle adds light to a design, lifting the overall mood, whether it is sofa pillows, table settings, or your Christmas decor. This year’s themes “Frosted Friends” and “Winter Formal” blend the current home decorating fabrics, patterns, and embellishments with traditional Southern style and represent two stunningly different looks. “New Traditions” enlivens burgundy with an infusion of the new, cleaner pale lime being used in home decor.
Christmas lovers will find an all new selection of Santas, snowmen, sports and hobbies, family commemoratives, snowflakes, and beautiful decorative glass ornaments. Every color of the rainbow is represented in our more than 14 fully decorated room-size trees, from the autumnal shades of “Harvest Wine” to the whimsical Christmas brights of “Clara’s Night Out” and “Snow Fun”. Basic glass ornaments in over 30 colors really pull these looks together and are very budget friendly.
Holiday ribbons just seem to get more beautiful every year. Our selections this season include printed linen, French chic, and embroidered looks on silk and burlap. Don’t miss the “Fresh and Fancy” ribbons, lime and red lace coupled with sequin encrusted color blended fabric; it’s a show stopper! Ribbon is a great way to spruce up your holiday look without breaking the bank. Let us show you how to blend different styles together for a dramatic impact and best use of your decorating dollar. Learn how to use ribbons to their greatest effect at our first seminar of the season, “Ribbons and Bows”, Thursday evening, 7 p.m., October 4. Join us and you CAN learn how to make a bow. We serve light refreshments and admission is $10 per person. Give us a call, 770-972-7237, and make a reservation today.
We are so excited about the 2012 season; it’s shaping up to be a great year. The elves look forward to seeing you soon. Doors open at 10 a.m. on September 29 so mark your calendar.
