Custom Christmas Decorating
By the talented elves at The Christmas Sleigh, Inc.
Our Christmas Tree
|Christmas has always been my very favorite time of year. Our family’s tradition was to begin began decorating the entire house for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. Over the years, our home became known for our Christmas decorating both inside and out. Frankly, there is not a room in the house that isn’t decorated in some way during the holidays. It might be simply a poinsettia or a cluster of candles on a table, or a pitcher full of fresh greenery, but there is something inviting and befitting of the season in each room.|
|For years, friends have
asked for Christmas decorating tips. Then, when we
opened the shop, customers wanted to know how we created
the magical trees as well as the vignettes all around
the shop. We began giving impromptu "Christmas
decorating" lessons, and before long, our custom
Christmas decorating arm of the business had taken off.
We now decorate a limited number of homes all over the
country! We are a small team and do everything
ourselves, so reservations must be booked ahead we also
include the complete disassembly of the decorations
after the holiday as well as the packing, labeling and
storing of the decorations.
In this section you will see examples of our work. First and foremost, you will see that we specialize in classic Christmas decorating. But, while Colonial Williamsburg would be right at home at our house, we have decorated homes to suit tastes of all sorts. (We draw the line at silver trees with blue lights!) We specialize in hand creating Williamsburg fresh decorations using enormous amounts of fresh greenery shipped directly to us from the grower in North Carolina, and we strive to create a warm, cozy and festive ambiance. Naturally, our German Christmas creations sold in our shop help create an old world Christmas feeling. Ours at home are ones that we have had for years and years, and they are truly family heirlooms.
You will see we use lots of greenery and fresh fruit typical of what is considered to be Colonial Williamsburg decorating. We tend to decorate in many ways as they might have done in the 1700's here in Virginia but certainly in the ways that would have been used during the Colonial Revival period.
