Field Trip Friday -Texas’ #1 Christmas Store

As they say, “Everything’s Bigger in Texas!”

So of course there would have to be the largest store dedicated to Christmas décor that I had ever seen.

For the past year I have seen several billboards promoting Texas’ #1 Christmas store. It was finally time to check it out. The Decorator’s Warehouse was about a 25 minute drive from my house but it was worth it. Luckily, I had gotten a good nights sleep and had eaten a hearty breakfast because there was SO much to see.

Although the store is huge it is organized by themes and colors.

Planning a red and white candy cane theme? No problem!

Within each section there is a fully decorated tree to provide, in this case, literal eye candy.

But perhaps your sweet tooth fantasies are leaning towards a touch of gingerbread with a splash of green.

The trees truly are works of art.

There are also all sorts of accents pieces so that you can decorate every inch of your home if you so desire.

As well as a large faux floral and fauna area.

I saw many one of kind items that you just can’t find in your average craft store. There were bargains to be had if you hunted in the numerous clearance aisles.

I will probably make this an annual trip. Next year I definitely want to try the tearoom.

It looked like a charming place to have lunch.

What an amazing place to shop and find something to inspire your decorating. Definitely worth the 25 min drive!
And if the sneak peek is anything to go by, your decor this Christmas is going to be gorgeous. Can't wait to see. :)

This reminds me very much of Prairie Gardens in Champaign - it's gorgeous but so much for this OCD girl to take in that it literally overwhelms me

Austin used to have a large Christmas store. Not certain if it is still around. This one is amazing!
Our tree is up, but still working on the house. I know your home is going to be special. Sorry to miss the party!

Hi Laura! It is an amazing place, isn't it! I live in Fort Worth, and go every year! I'm also about 25 minutes away! When friends or family come from out of state, I always take them there! Merry Christmas...God Bless!

Still have to drag the bins down from the attic. I have a few new things up I just bought. That is quite the store!!

Debra Oliver said...

Decorator's Warehouse is truly an extravaganza to see. I've been shopping there from its beginning days in a wee space in an actual warehouse space in Arlington, Tx. Over the years it has grown and grown, and much of its inventory is way-over-the-top for me. But, it is still fun to visit and to find a few treasures.

The Rose Garden Tea Room is a wonderful place to eat. Their coconut pie is to die for! If you go, be sure to order the pie FIRST thing. They sell out most days.

Looking forward to seeing you at next week's Texas bloggers' cookie exchange.
