Shopping for the holidays can be a difficult endeavor when on a budget. Because the holiday season can be expensive, it is always nice to find ways to save money, even if it doesn't seem like a lot at the time. There are several techniques that people use during this time of year to make it easier on their wallets, and you can be in on it, too.

Beautiful inspiration photos. I have a house tour that I do every year and I know what is involved! Good Luck and what a great idea to share with your readers!

Hi Mona,

Interesting post about Christmas in July. It must be difficult to think about the holidays and cold weather when we are smack in the middle of a warm summer. Love the items you are showing.


What a wonderful group of possibilities. I love the zinc ornaments. For some reason they make me think New Orleans. Maybe that's because I'm hoping my next project is for a client who is moving to the mountains from there. Hmmm..I wonder. Thanks so much! I'll be back.


Mona, you read my mind! Our first Christmas orders from market arrived today so I've been tagging, etc…and all the while thinking of a Christmas in July post! Can't wait to do it! I bet we have passed by each other for years at Market! Can't wait to meet one day! Love your selections…as they are some of our faces as well!

What a lovely treat to see all of these beautiful Christmas things on a hot July night.

Hopping over from the Christmas in July blog hop - #57.



Dearest Gorgeous Mona,

Thank you so much for popping along to our blog, so good to get your seal of approval and to point me in the right direction of your fabulous blog and shop. I shall be following from today.

Hi Mona, so nice to meet you. Yvonne is a GOOD FRIEND of mine! You asked about how long it takes me to decorate each year. I would say a week. Joe and I do outside in a day and then I do each room one day. I do bedrooms and bathrooms as well as the public rooms!!!! BUT, we are in the process of selling this house and building a new one so I am REALLY looking forward to decorating the ew place!!!!!! I am a floral designer and worked for years in a place that sells artificial trees, greens containers etc. They also have a design room and that is where I worked. And they sell at wholsale prices so I have s WONDERFUL rsource 10 mins. away. Loved seeing all of your merchandise. XO, Pinky

Hi Mona!

Love Parkhill...great stuff! Beautiful inspiration photos. I have a house tour that I do every year and I know what is involved! Good Luck and what a great idea to share with your readers!

Thanks so much Loi...

Hi, Mona -

You all have chosen very beautiful and thoughtful Christmas decorations for us. Thanks so much for all the inspirations. Nothing better than a festive and traditional Christmas. I will share this with my friends.......

Cheers from DC,


Nice post, thanks for sharing this wonderful and useful information with us.

Thanks Yvonne.

Just breathtaking... this is like looking through a BEST OF CHIRISTMAS magazine! So full of inspiration!

It's Christmas in July...It really is...

Retailers typically place their large Christmas Decor orders in July, with a chance for another buy in September. After that, you are just taking a chance on complete deliveries because the vendors don't want to get caught with a lot of holiday merchandise going into the Spring Season.

We've got some big events coming up this year, including a holiday decorating presentation for around 400 women at the Little Rock Chenal Country Club on November 15th.

We are placing orders and making plans now...So we decided to let you in on the fun...

If you place an order with us now...we will add it to our inventory orders and offer you a 20% Discount.

We'll ship as soon as we receive the merchandise... That's it...take a little time right now, while you are not hassled or rushed, start thinking about the holidays and place your orders to receive 20% off.

This post is full of inspiration and ideas for a simple, more natural way of decorating your home for the holidays. So grab a cup of coffee and start humming...I'll be home for Christmas, because it will be here before you know it, and this year you will be prepared.

This offer is good until August 15th.

No one does it better than Pamela Pierce when it comes to simple, fresh and natural...

If you are like we are, our decorations go up way too early to do everything in fresh greens. As much as we love them, it's not practical for our lives. We have started doing the next best thing...mixing artificial with fresh...

We have fooled many people with the lush mix and fresh scent...

Another tip is to continue to refresh the greens you have worked into the garlands right up until Christmas. You can stop by fresh tree lots and pick up the trimmimgs for free.

The very first thing you just have to order is a bunch of these Sugar Cones...they are awesome.

We add them to the garland around the front door, on mantels, the stairway, the tree, dining table...They are gorgeous, natural and add huge impact.

Minimum order is 20 cones, each pine cone size ranges from 10\"-14\" long Retail $7.50 each

If you use artificial garland and don't have nice full ones...it's time to throw the old stuff away...Again...our favorite is fresh garland...just not always practical...Our new favorite is the pine garland because they look more real and you can add fresh sprigs of cedar and pine here and there for a full, beautiful and fragrant garland...

Some new pieces to consider...

A..Northwestern Pine Spray 36\" x 24\" Minimum order 2. Retail $60.00 each

B..Northwestern Pine Garland 18\" wide x 6ft. long Minimum order 2.Retail $90.00 each

C..Northwestern Pine Swag...works as a centerpiece too. 36\" x 18\" ( Pair with LED Remote Candles) Minimum Order 2 Retail $62.00

This is beautiful mixed Evergreen and Berry ...

J..32\" Wreath Minimum Order 2. Retail $82.00 each

K..Mixed Evergreen and Berry Festoon 32\" x 20\" Minimum Order 4. Retail $29.00 each

L.. Mixed Evergreen and Berry Garland !8\" x 72\" Minimum Order 2. Retail $76.00 each

If you've done much holiday decorating in the past, you know that by the time you find the berries (if you can find them) and pay to add them to your garland, that this mix is a very good value.
