S’more Trends 2023

Hello, all my Christmas loving friends! Now that Mrs. C. and I have a head a little breather, a little chance to do inventory, a little time at Market, we are ready share S’more Trends 2023!

We’re already planning the trees for 2023, but just for fun, here’s a look at our trees of 2022.

While we were at Dallas Market earlier this month, we kept an eye out for all the new looks. Here are some of our favorites.

Organic and Natural

It’s not just a food trend to go organic and all natural, it’s a Christmas trend. People like their home decor and Christmas decorations to be natural and organic, too. We found several trees at Dallas Market that we are getting our inspiration from this year.

Because Willow Tree matches this look so well, it will be nestled right next to one of these areas.

Over the Top

You may not know this, but the trees we see at Market are always a bit…. over the top. Our trees that we put up in our store are actually toned-down versions. There are lots of reasons to make things more simple, but this year, we noticed that this over-the-top-ness of the trees was kinda its own Christmas trend. So, we decided to embrace it!

Gnomes for Miles

Apparently, if a trend sticks around for longer than a few years, it’s no longer a trend. It becomes a tradition. Gnomes are no longer just a trend. They are going to remain popular for years to come. So, this year, we are doing another gnome look.

I’m pretty excited about this look just because it involves s’more trends, an unexpected Christmas trend for 2023, MUSHROOMS!

Mushroom ornaments are very old fashioned, but suddenly, they are on trend, too! It boggles my mind. Being over a hundred years old, I think this is pretty snazzy. Takes me back.


S’more trends 2023! Like the gnomes, food is still a super popular thing to decorate with. So, like last year, we have multiple trees planned to display all the food themed ornaments.

This pink peppermint themed tree is definitely going to be in our front window.

In fact, I may have ordered a ridiculous amount of food related ornaments for Christmas… I hope you’re hungry! ?

Here’s a tree we fell in love with that we haven’t even figured out where to put!

The biggest trend every year: MEMORIES

Traditional looks are not going anywhere. We will always carry the best ornaments to commemorate the memories of the year, and we will always have traditional tree themes that complement those memorable ornaments.

Just a quick reminder that all of our overstock from last year is on sale through the end of February.

It’s a great chance to stock up on decorations-I mean MEMORIES!-at 25-40% off! As you may have noticed some ornaments jumped in price this year (we hear some will drop in price in 2023). So, some items that are normally only 25% off will be 40% off for the first time EVER!

We, also, may have gone overboard with certain lines of everyday items like the things with sprinkles… ? So, even though they aren’t Christmas items, you will find them at 25% off! ?

S’more Updates!

Here’s what’s been happening that you may have missed. From featured sale items to new arrivals, this is where it’s at!

25% off all snow globes!

Our BIG after Christmas sale is going strong. ? Most of the store is 40% off, but some items like our snow globes would sell out before I could even place a reorder. So, they are only 25% off.

Check out our snow globes online, too! We can only do one level of discount. So, it’s 25% off all Christmas, Halloween, and Thanksgiving items with discount code: SALE…/snow-globes/

Take it easy, but if you do peak outside your doors, we hope you will come see us. ❤️

Our sale is going strong!

With deals like these, our Radko ornaments won’t last long, but that’s okay because more styles are coming soon.

Don’t know if you noticed, but I – @smore_elf – took a little break there from the posts and blogs and jive.

Well, the time has come to get back to awesome! Let’s start back on the right foot (not the left!!!!).

I hope you like this verse. It’s from the EASY version of the Bible. Yes, it’s a REAL thing. I just discovered it and hope you like it. ?



Some days can be hard, but our God is stronger!

We hope your day is blessed. ❤️

Never a dull moment around here!

The social media posts may be quiet, but we’ve been taking advantage of the cold weather (and slow traffic) by finishing up our inventory counting. There’s not enough coffee in the world to make inventory counting easy, but thank God, He’s always given enough grace to get us through.

Don’t forget how awesome you are.


And, don’t forget to come check out our awesome new signs.

God can do everything!

Someone needs to hear this tonight, I think.

Give me a like or a little love if you are liking this EASY version of the Bible. ❤️

Looking for a sweet gift for your sweet little one for Easter?

These earrings sets just arrived, and I think they are adorable for any age and any occasion!

? Think I will get our Easter display up by the weekend?

? Me neither!

Just be aware it’s starting to arrive!

Why do inventory? Mainly so we find all the things that were sold out on display and hiding in boxes – like this cute Turkey Gnome!

He’s 40% off! Stop by and snag him before he is truly gone.

I like my synonym rolls just like grammar used to make. And, I love our new funny signs that just arrived.

Our towels make me giggle! ?

The sass is real. We should love our neighbors, but there’s nothing wrong with loving from a distance? ? Especially if you are an introvert, like me.

Thanks for reading! You are one of the reasons we “Celebrate Always” (I Thessalonians 5:16) where it’s Christmas every day.
