Christmas Decor Ideas

There is so much Christmas decor every where you look, but wow, is it all amazing.  I was in At Home (formerly Garden Ridge) the other day and I was just amazed. 

This is what greeted me at the front door.

 There is so much stacked on this display, you could stand here for an hour and just drool.

 I love the Mad Hatters Hats and they have an unreal selection of Santas and Angels.

 I've never seen trees in so many colors.  Red,green,orange,purple, pink, turquoise, royal blue, black, you name it and it is here.  Plus they have tons of different sizes in standard greens.

 There are huge long aisles of ornaments in every color pallet imaginable.

 Need some of the turquoise, purple, pink or black.  It's all here and even a little orange too.

I brought home a few things, but I felt like a real wimp.  No wild fabulous colors, just a little white,silver and gold.

So, how about you,  are you doing a traditional tree, or are you being adventurous and going for color.

Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live this afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.

I am joining the following parties:

  1. Good grief at the ornaments! I would be overwhelmed with all of that. No wild colors here...just my normal red and green and more red everywhere. :) I did not know that Garden Ridge had changed names. Thanks for taking us shopping along with you!

  2. I was there Friday...what a selection! I picked up a couple of glittered deer heads and a that place! Hugs, Penny

  3. Good Sunday Morning Marty,
    I am going to have to check this place out. There is one by me and I have to say I have never been in there. Must change that! I am adding red nordic theme this year to my whites. I am excited to work with the red. Have a great rest of the week end. Love all your goodies you found.

  4. That is almost overwhelming! I do traditional all the way.

  5. Where in Phoenix is this Marty? I need a visit next time I come.
    Big hugs,

  6. There is one that just opened off the 51 and Cactus so now there are three.They have the best selection for ready to go outdoor cushions for patio furniture that I have ever seen. Patio furniture gets year round use here and the sun wears them out, which makes this store a great addition.

  7. That store is almost overwhelming for me! I just stick to traditional red and white for our tree...with occassional gold and silver thrown in. Thanks for the tour! ;)

  8. It has been a long time since I was in GR. I did not know they had changed names - hopefully the store here has improved also. I may have to go and check it out. Thanks for the tour.
    Hard to believe the holidays are just around the corner.
    Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

  9. There is one really close to me, but I have not gone yet. Now I see that I'd better put it on my list!

  10. Marty, I am going for the winter wonderland look this year. I started gathering things all summer long from yard sales and thrift stores.
    I am taking my traditional red ornaments and decorations to my daughter. She has five trees, so she will definitely be able to use them.
    I sold a lot of my traditional decoration in the yard sale yesterday as well. I love the look you are going for, you found some really pretty things to decorate with this year.

  11. What an amazing store! I've gone to do my rounds with the grandgirls and mostly got stuff for them and we also fixed thet C'mas looks gorgeous!
    Have a great week sweet lady.

  12. Wow that is quite the store! Hard to decide on what you like when so much is before you! I stick to traditional Christmas decorating.

  13. Wow what a store! So many beautiful Christmas ornaments. I can't believe Christmas is almost here.
    Have a great day!


  14. I was just in this store last week, and it was amazing! So many trees, like you said , and a great selection of just about everything you would want for Christmas! I'd love if you would share this at my blog party, Celebrate It! It is all about celebrating our wonderful, everyday lives!

  15. They are really packed with stuff, aren't they? I have no clue what direction I am going for Christmas. It's a little overwhelming with all the choices but it won't be any wild colors!

  16. Really enjoyed the tour, especially the This is as merry as we get sign, might have to get one of those just for fun!

  17. Thanks for the reminder to check out At Home. A few months ago, one opened near us. I need to check it out again. Looks like you found some really pretty things. Gold and silver are favorite colors at our house, too. We have a "family tree" with ornaments collected over the years and some made by our son when he was in school, and some made by the grandsons. Looking forward to seeing your tree.

  18. I'm so ready for Christmas decorating!! I always go with the traditional red and green!

  19. I'm going very traditional this year and doing a lot of homemade! I'm not one for bright and bold colors. I like traditional.

  20. Everything is so pretty, but I'm feeling so far behind! I barely got pumpkins for Halloween! Thanks for sharing! Also wanted to let you know about a new linky party starting this Saturday at 8pm called “Found & Foraged” Can’t wait to party with you at

  21. I'm so ready to decorate, but I wait till after Rememberance Day!
    Oh I could go crazy in that store!

  22. Hi Marty, I enlarged every single pictue and was in awe. Wish we had a store like that here but we don't. What happens to me in a store like that is that I want everything so I get nothing!

  23. Wow! What a fun place to visit, Marty...Christine

  24. Marty,
    I would have thought I died and went to heaven when I stepped in the doors of that fantastic place!!
