Last Minute Ideas for Decorating..

Glass ornaments are not just for the trees anymore... they are for beautiful wreaths...
~or to add a punch of color with apothocary jars...

~to hang from the rafters, or at least the crown molding...

~or load them up on the mantel...

~ you could even hang them from the mantel....

~use as a party favor and/or a place setting...

~use as decorations to hang from the chandelier...

~ create a small mini tree for a corner or empty shelf....

~ use one or two colors to create a theme...

~OR~ top it all off as a tree topper... take the cap off and put over the top branch of the tree...

We hope you all enjoy the holidays!

What is your favorite color?

Pinks, purples, raspberry, or HONEYSUCKLE... above is a creative way to infuse one of your favorite colors into your living space, using glass ornaments.

Limes, moss, or other shades of green add just a perfect punch to a relaxing shelf arrangement.

Both of these ideas can last long after the Christmas decorating season... think outside the norm and decorate with glass ornaments ALL year long.

O' Christmas Tree..

Exciting and Magical News!

Although we are currently in the midst of our busy season with receiving in shipments and sending out orders... we also are starting to think about our 2011 season.

What new products do we bring in? How do we re-decorate the showroom to get the "WOW" factor from our current customers and enough of a "wow" factor to entice new customers to come in and visit us. What themes will we display? Hopefully the Zim's Wizard will work his magic in the showroom.

We are very excited to introduce some new additions to our Whitehurst Family. We will be welcoming in the following new lines to The Whitehurst Company:

Oberfrankische Glas from Germany
Zim's Elves Themselves and Zim's Nutcrakers

Natalie Sarabella

With Oberfrankische Glas we will be introducing some of the most beautiful pieces of glass ornamentation. There will be all sorts of themes to build a collection on.

Zim's Elves Themselves and Zim's Nutcrackers will be making their debut back into the holiday market in January 2011 at the Atlanta Gift Show. These adorable Elves and whimsical Nutcrackers will delight every age group.

We welcome Natalie Sarabella and her beautiful ornaments. What a wonderful addition to The Whitehurst Company. Natalie Sarabella has created a special assortment of ornaments that will entice everyone.

The Whitehurst Company welcomes these new additions to our family. We hope you will enjoy visiting us in our showroom at the Atlanta Gift Show in January.

Enjoy the next few weeks leading up to the Holidays! See you in Atlanta!
