SW Holiday Sale + Ornament Swap

by in Main, News on

Good morning, belles! Hope you had the happiest Thanksgiving and are enjoying a slice of leftover pecan pie with your coffee this morning! We’re ready to welcome the Christmas season with open arms, and we know many of you are out shopping the holiday sales to check off the names on your shopping lists. We wanted to remind you can can stay cozy in your pajamas and visit the Southern Weddings Shop and snag deals up to 50% off!

Hurry on over to pick your favorites, especially if you are shopping for a bride, newlywed, or bridesmaid this holiday season! If I could marry KPW all over again, I would snag that amazing Bride Bundle faster than butter melts on a biscuit. It’s everything a bride-to-be needs to plan for her big day and beyond!

And for readers near and far, I’m excited to announce that we’ll be hosting the annual Southern Weddings Ornament Swap for the eighth year in a row! As someone who loves getting “real” mail, I can personally vouch for how much fun it is to participate. We had an amazing swap last year and would love for y’all to participate this time around.

Here’s how it will work (please read carefully!):

1. By Monday, December 5: Email [email protected] with “2016 Ornament Swap” in the subject line. Include your name, mailing address, email address, website/blog address, and Instagram handle.
2. By Wednesday, December 7: I will have emailed you the names and addresses of up to five people to send ornaments to. Yep, that means you’ll be sending up to five ornaments, and you’ll be receiving up to five in return!
3. By Wednesday, December 14: Be sure to send out your ornaments no later than this date! Then, all that’s left to do is wait for the holiday goodness to roll in.

Your ornaments can be homemade or store-bought, and we suggest that you make them as Southern as possible :)

If you have any questions, leave a comment on this post or email me at [email protected]–we can’t wait to see the ornaments y’all share this year!

      Carol, there is no minimum or maximum but I would say nothing too expensive. A lot of people get crafty and make ornaments! Feel free to email me: [email protected]com if you have any further questions.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! Magazines are popping up everywhere, and I am dreaming of my grandmama’s famous turkey and dressing. While I have a strict no Christmas music rule until after we’ve eaten Thanksgiving dinner, I start to get excited about holiday events soon after I pack away my back-to-school decorations! So of course, I’m thrilled to announce that we’ll be hosting two of our favorite holiday events in December: our sixth annual Southern Weddings Ornament Swap and our fourth annual Gingerbread Barn Building Event!

We’ll be pulling out our favorite holiday aprons for a night of gingerbread barn building fun at the lovely Carolina Inn on Thursday, December 11. Please RSVP if you’re planning to join us, so we know how many graham crackers to purchase and how much frosting to secure!

Not familiar with this SW holiday tradition? Take a peek at the last few years for some inspiration: 2011, 2012, 2013 (ahem, recognize anyone from the 2011 event? That’s where I met the SW gals for the first time!!). Most attendees choose to work in groups, so grab your best friends, your mama, or your darling beau! Everyone is invited, and for the last few years, many people have come armed with building plans and their own holiday aprons–we love the enthusiasm!

For those of y’all who can’t make it to Chapel Hill on December 11, we’d love to have you join us for our sixth annual Southern Weddings Ornament Swap! As someone who loves getting “real” mail, I can personally vouch for how much fun it is to participate in this!

We had an amazing swap last year and would love for all y’all to participate again this year. Here’s how it will work (please read carefully!):

1. By Monday, December 1: Email [email protected] with “2014 Ornament Swap” in the subject line. Include your name, mailing address, email address, website/blog address, and Instagram handle.
2. By Wednesday, December 3: Lisa will have emailed you the names and addresses of up to five people to send ornaments to. Yep, that means you’ll be sending up to five ornaments, and you’ll be receiving up to five in return!
3. By Friday, December 12: Be sure to send out your ornaments no later than this date! Then, all that’s left to do is wait for the holiday goodness to roll in.

Your ornaments can be homemade or store-bought, and we suggest that you make them as Southern as possible!

Everyone around the SW office is so excited for the coming weeks and the chance to spend some sweet time with y’all! Because we know this time of year can get busy, we’ll be keeping you updated on these events as the holiday countdown commences. Keep your eyes open and hurry on’ up and RSVP!

P.S. If you have any questions, leave a comment on this post or email me directly at [email protected]!!

P.P.S. The Southern Weddings Postal Service will be closing up shop on December 18, so be sure to get your gifting orders in before then! There are lots of new Southern holiday goodies to snag!
