Show Your Holiday Cheer with Oriental Trading

Holiday cheer can be summed up nicely with the word, joy.  I love how the streets are lit up for the holidays and I absolutely love the warm and cozy feel inside of a home decorated for the holidays.  Oriental Trading is a great place to find holiday affordable décor.  Even one new holiday item can help bring new life to old decorations.

The word JOY spelled out in white letters simply gets me in the mood for a white Christmas.  The white letters have a glittery finish that reminds me of snow.  The light up JOY sign from Oriental Trading is a great way to bring cheer and a warm glow into your home.  With just two AA batteries this sign lights up and can be turned on or off easily.  Place this sign on a buffet table, mantel, or any other table

I love everything about holiday décor.  The sparkle, lights, and rustic charm simply warm up our home this time of year.  The buffalo plaid line of products at Oriental Trading works great with rustic holiday décor.  The buffalo plaid glass tumblers may be one of my favorite items from this line.  These are really nice quality glass tumblers.  They come in a set of 4 and are very reasonably priced.  The design really pops when the glasses is filled!  Please note that these glasses are hand wash only.  The image will melt and distort if placed in dishwasher.  I may know this from personal experience….oops!  Thankfully this only happened to one of my glasses and the rest still look great after being cleaned by hand.  The Be Merry serving tray from Oriental Trading is the perfect way to serve up holiday drinks in our new glasses.  This holiday tray is made of wood yet is light weight with easy to hold handles.  We keep this tray out all holiday season to rest our glasses on as well as a home for our tv remote and most likely stranded toy cars and Shopkins.  It adds a festive feel to our living room making it both fun and functional!

The buffalo plaid gift bags are another great item.  They look awesome bundled under the tree.  I used some bakers twine to tie a paper black letter to each gift bag instead of using name tags this year.  I love the look!  My baby girl is a tissue paper thief and I didn’t realize she snatched it out of the gift bags when I took the photo but you get the idea!  Oriental Trading also has really cute gift tags that go with these bags perfectly.  Check out their Buffalo Plaid Christmas Tags.  They complete the look of a rustic Christmas package. I somehow missed these when I placed my order or I so would have ordered those as well!

Presents!  Who doesn’t love them?  They look so pretty under the tree and it always feels good to hand over a nicely wrapped present to a loved one.  My kids absolutely love receiving pretty packages but they also love to help me wrap presents.  Therefore, choosing wrapping paper and ribbon each year is very important.

This year we wanted a wide variety of ribbon options so I actually ordered bakers twine and burlap lace ribbon.  Oriental Trading has bakers twine in a variety of colors. I chose the gold because I love how it shimmers under the light of our Christmas tree.  The larger burlap lace ribbon is also very pretty.  I love both of these ribbon choices because they look great with almost any color paper.  I also plan on using some of the burlap ribbon to hang mini wreaths from my windows.  Unfortunately, the wreaths I found on another website are on back order until after Christmas.  In the meantime, I will be admiring my pretty packages and eating Christmas cookies!
