cardTrend Spotting at the Atlanta Gift Show: Vintage Circus

Fresh off the Atlanta Gift Show, we saw tons of wonderful new products from some of our favorite designers as well as from some up and coming artists! Overall we were very pleased with all of the stories we created, each a conglomerate of unique items sure to delight.  However, I will say that after 20+ years attending the NY Gift Show, Atlanta was definitely an eye opening / exhausting experience!  A completely different set up with the majority of vendors showing in permanent showrooms, we found it challenging to keep up the same pace that we have grown accustomed to at the NY Show.  Regardless…we had a great time in Atlanta and look forward to sharing some of our favorite trends from the show as well as some of our favorite local shops and events.  Check back over the coming weeks for updates!

It seemed like everywhere we looked there were vintage inspired circus themed items…from cards to toys, gifts, paper goods, and even kid’s clothing.  Here are some of our favorite pieces…






Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l’Action de grâce ) is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year.

This time of year it is always fun to decorate, decorate, decorate! We love the challenge of coming up with new ideas to keep the Thanksgiving celebration looking fresh and festive.  Our advice: don’t be afraid to mix in plenty of natural elements…go outside and see what you can re-purpose from your yard.  Rosemary from the garden and leftover Halloween pumpkins make charming place cards! Recently fallen leaves and garden gourds create a unique mantle presentation.  From plates to placecards, here are some of our favorite finds for this years feast!
