You’re having a party, time to decorate.


Christmas Tree Shops and & That! Stores

While just about every retail store has wreaths, Santas and snowmen décor items, Christmas Tree Shops and & That stores have about the largest selection we’ve found, and at prices that are generally considerably lower than most others.  And the quality is comparable or superior.  What you’ll see here is a snapshot of what they sell in the stores.  They no longer sell online.  Rather, they are using the website to provide product previews, trends, and ideas.  They have stores in 20 states, and are still growing, so hopefully there’s one near you, or will be soon.  We like them so much we’re keeping them in our Where To Find It sections as long as we can obtain enough information to be useful here.

Table runners and placemats bring a bit of season or color to most any table.  The red pattern runner on the top left is 90” x 14” and made of cotton and polyester.  It’s also available in green.  The polyester runner in the middle is reversible, as are the quilted placemats on the right.  The runner in the bottom left is made of polyester and comes in 70” or 90” by 13”.  The runner on the left is made of cotton, and the one on the right is cotton/polyester.  Both are 72” x 13”.

 Throw pillows can also add a bit of color and festivity.  Those above are only a few available.

Family and guests will enjoy these charming doormats every time they walk through your door.  And these aren’t all they have.

They have an amazing selection of wreaths, with excellent quality and prices that just can’t be beat.


These lovely nativity scenes are made of poly resin and are about 9.5 to 10: tall.

They have Santas in various sizes, clothing and in multiple themes, including Beach Santa, and a Santa looking in the window wall hanging.

And don’t forget these sweet reindeer!


Or Santa’s elves.

Or these cute snowmen (and snow girls)!

Oriental Trading Company

Oriental Trading Company has an amazing array of party supplies.  They started out using catalogs to sell to teachers, expanded to corporate sales and now sell to everyone online.  They specialize in disposable party supplies, but in recent years have added items that are intended to be kept.  Their pricing is typically somewhere between competitive and quite low, although sometimes the prices are so low because they are selling items by the dozen (we’ll note the number of units for the price for each item if there is more than one pictured).
