“Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ”
― Norman Vincent Peale
The air feels magical during this time of the year. The sweet sound of jingle bells, enticing aroma of ginger bread cookies, the finger licking red and white candy canes and beautifully lit green trees ease us into the holiday spirit.
While the elves are busy wrapping and loading Santa’s sleigh, wreaths are up on doors. Ornaments are finding their place on trees and baking essentials are stocked for some toothsome puddings and cakes. The Christmas countdown begins.
As the age old Christmas traditions are followed, our senses are put to the test. We are ready to take a bow, hang up our boots and savor the Christmas festivities.
We have done our bit to help the elves and Santa this year with a variety of wreaths, candles, gift boxes and decorative curios.
Wreaths symbolize strength and are generally made with an assortment of evergreens, flowers and fruits. Addition of ornaments and colored lace make it striking.
Poinsettias are traditional Christmas flowering plants wrapped around candles and gift boxes to cheer us through the holiday.
Pine cones over white and red bands on candles make great traditional center pieces.
Few works that have inspired us.
For it is good to be children sometimes and never better than at Christmas when its mighty Founder was a child himself – Charles Dickens, The Christmas Carol.
It’s time to bring out the child in you and enjoy the jolliest time of the year. Tania Clay Studio wishes all a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
