Holiday Product Round-Up

While Old Saint Nick has well over two months to prepare for his circumnavigation of the globe via reindeer and sleigh, Martha Stewart's elves haven't wasted a moment in helping us to set the stage for his arrival. I've received several emails from readers lately asking where they can find the Martha Stewart Everyday brand of holiday items this year. The simple answer is that you will not find them. The Everyday brand has been effectively discontinued now that MSLO and K-Mart have parted ways. But, oh, there is still plenty to celebrate!

New this year is the Martha Stewart Living holiday line available exclusively at Home Depot. From ornaments to lights to wreaths to garlands to trees, all of your holiday decorating must-haves are there this year, right alongside the new line of paints, the new lighting fixtures, the cleaning products, the kitchens, the garden supplies and seeds and the carpets and rugs.

We cannot, however, leave out the irreplaceable Macy's, where Martha has yet another holiday product line - this one a little more refined and elegant. There are fun, bouncy new colours in the holiday collection at Macy's this year (lime green, fucshia, baby blue and lavender) as well as more classic tones, like deep reds and greens, sparkling whites and silvers, rustic golds and burgundies.
Have a look at some examples from both collections below, starting with the Home Depot. All are new introductiosn this year. Click here to see the entire Home Depot collection. Click here to see the Macy's line.

I really enjoy the colours in this wreath.This wreath is more traditional but no less elegant.

Cupcake ornaments? I'm sold! These little bird ornaments are a flashback to some of the antique ornaments my grandmother had on her tree when I was growing. I love the colours.
I think these are my favourite: frosted pinecone ornaments in all manner of bright, festive colours.

Another nod to the vintage are this very small, swirly-striped ornaments.
Classic and bold.

Light and snowy.
The golden touch. Merriment in spades!

Each of the colours shown comes in a set of eight. Perfect for a hostess gift or for entertaining: a set of three festive tea towels.

The kids will love these tea towels with snowman designs.
This tabletop tree, which comes with its own ornamnets, would make an adorable statement on a bedside table, dresser or mantel. A more classic version of the tabletop tree, this one comes with white lights.
