Fall In Love With Your Decor
By Patty O’Connell | Gumbo Limbo Coastal Chic
The holidays have always been the most special time of year at Gumbo Limbo Coastal Chic and Fall and Halloween kick the season off followed by Thanksgiving and Christmas!
This season is filled with all of the warm colors and scents of fall..even in Florida, fall has to be a state of mind! Everything pumpkin, items for entertaining, kitchen and bath as well as hostess gifts are always popular. Gnomes are still trending this year for the entire season.
We have seen a surge in Halloween, everything from home décor to party items! Thanksgiving is of course a time for gathering and we are seeing a huge increase in all things for the holiday…tabletop, glassware, entertaining, and of course, the very popular hostess gift-giving for those who are not hosting.
Our Christmas wonderland starts with our cardinal tree room! One of the most popular holiday themes for many years now, as customers relate the meaning of the cardinal to those who are no longer with us. A sign of love and dear ones who “are always with us”. Other popular themes again this year are farmhouse and of course coastal for our Florida friends.
ALL of our buying, displays, and accessorizing are created by me, my husband, daughter, and longtime close friend. It’s truly a labor of love in our 15th year.
