Holiday Decorating 2007


Alright, I've been on Curbly for a few weeks, and I think it's about time I post something.  Being lazy (as well as running my own blog), I've decided to use the holidays as an excuse to blog it up.

Christmas ornaments and decorations seem to get more beautiful by the year. This year, the availability of gorgeous items spans the economic range, from the Tord Boontje series of Christmas dinnerware and accessories ($10.99-24.99) at Target, to this amazing Sterling silver globe ornament ($110) from Neiman Marcus. Alicia (my girlfriend) and I settled between those two extremes for our tree, with items like this great red coil ornament from Crate and Barrel and this mod circle ornament from Pier 1.

Of the four stores I was browsing around for ideas for this post, Hanukkah items are noticeably scarce from Pier 1. Target had a great variety of Hanukkah pieces, although none had the visual appeal of Tord Boontje's Christmas line. Neiman Markus offers about a dozen Hanukkah seasonal items, but none of them struck the fancy of this design snob. C&B has, by far, the best looking Hanukkah decorations, like this Column Menorah. And no, I'm not just saying that because I work there now.

Yeah, right now CB is selling two different menorah's:  the column one above, and a really nice traditional menorah (I started working at CB two weeks ago).  I bet a DIY'r with some woodworking skill could make a really nice wood version of HGTV's milk carton menorah.

I got a really nice menorah from CB a few years ago, couldn't find a pic on the site so I'll post one when I get home. Here's a nice one (that I don't own):


And here's an interesting-looking how-to from HGTV on making your own modern menorah
