It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving has passed and it’s time to move on to Christmas. If you find yourself longing to slow down and create a beautiful environment for your Christmas events with family and friends, consider visiting Surceé Home Décor & Gifts.
Owner Laura Sanders has filled the store to the brim with everything you need to create a striking home year round, and the holidays are no exception. The store has been transformed into a winter wonderland, and you can find something special for every taste.
If you need some decorating inspiration, be sure to visit The Christmas Cottage during the special holiday home tour, exclusively for Surceé customers. The home, owned and decorated by Pam Holt, was one of the first built in Ator Heights in the mid-60s. Pam’s home is decorated with treasured collections of seasonal décor, creating vignettes ranging from vintage to modern with a mix of colors, textures and materials.
Wine and cheese will be served at the Open House on Friday evening, December 2 from 6 to 9 p.m., and cake balls and hot apple cider will welcome guests on the Saturday Open House, to be held December 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at Surceé for $8 each, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Owasso Community Resources Center.
Back at Surceé, ideas are plentiful with four themed trees that are decorated from tip-top to very bottom. One tree features a whimsical metal elf on top, peppermint candy garland, and a lighthearted variety of elves, old-fashioned toys, and brightly painted metal ornaments. A gold and silver theme tree sparkles with vintage-style glass ornaments featuring pastel Santas, reindeer and angels, along with glittering gold poinsettias, snowflakes, pinecones and bells. A third tree features the more muted color palette of taupe metal crosses and plaid ribbon décor with large metallic ball ornaments and subtle fabric poinsettias. A fourth tree goes all out traditional red and green with Santas, snowmen, bells and glittering ribbon.
Surceé carries the very popular line of The Round Top Collection decorations for outdoor use, including large Santas, reindeer, candy canes and more – add them to your outdoor space to greet your holiday guests.
Whether you are starting from scratch or looking for a few pieces to add to your existing collections, you are sure to catch the holiday spirit when you visit Surceé. Be sure to check out the Christmas village pieces, decorative plates for Santa, and the Tyler Candle line featuring special seasonal scents. “Eggnog is always our most popular,” says Laura. “But they all smell wonderful and make great hostess gifts.”
If you are hosting the party this year, you can find a wonderful assortment of Wind & Willow dip mixes, apple cider mixes and Wina-A-Rita mixes, as well as decorative plates and napkins, trays, and festive wine stoppers and charms for glasses and bottles.
Finding the perfect gifts is easy too. Anything by Brighton is sure to bring a smile, and Surceé has a great selection of Brighton handbags, jewelry and the ever popular charms. Laura says it’s always fun seeing dads bring the kids in to pick out new charms for mom. With cookbooks, gorgeous kitchen accessories, perfumes, jewelry, frames, college gear, baby gifts and so much more, you’ll be checking that holiday gift list off faster than Santa himself, and all in one location with complimentary gift wrap.
Want to make sure that the receiving is as nice as the giving? As always, you can fill out a personalized Wish List to let family and friends know exactly what you’d like. It’s a great way to combat that “You’re so hard to buy for” syndrome! Your special someone can even call ahead, and the friendly staff will pick something in the given price range, and have it wrapped and ready for pickup at no extra charge. In addition, Surceé is now offering free layaway on purchases of $100 or more, so you can shop early for the best selection.
