At Rubies Home Furnishings, we’ve been in Christmas mode since October, so you can imagine our excitement that the holiday is finally nearing. Christmas truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and it’s been an honor to help our customers get their homes ready for the holidays using our variety of themes, along with custom and pre-made Christmas decor. Our store is decked with trees and ideas that include everything from traditional Christmas items to snowmen, farmhouse glitz, piney woods scenes with vintage trucks and more. We are also in the middle of our 12 Days of Christmas promotion which means that every day until December 12, we have something in the store on sale. Watch on social media closely to see what the sale is each day.
If you’ve been busy and haven’t had time to get your home ready, make sure out check out all of Shorty’s holiday decorating tutorials from our Christmas Open House on our Rubies Home Furnishings YouTube Channel (also in Instagram IGTV). Shorty always knows how to make the most beautiful centerpieces, wreaths and more, often using things you have inside your home. There’s nothing wrong with Santa’s little helper giving us some decorating tips, right?
As your preparing your home, we want to make the holidays a time for you to treasure. We have the perfect gifts for your guests or special happies for you to take to a hostess. We even have a table in the front of our store dedicated for gifts under $20. This table has loads of Mississippi-made items as well, so we’ve made finding the perfect gift a piece of cake. And the best part, we’ll wrap it for you at no charge!
One of our most popular holiday pick up items has been the Captain Rodney’s glaze.
