Garden Flag Décor: All Season Charm

It’s no secret that we love garden flags here at Miles Kimball. In fact, garden flags and garden flag decor are some of our all-time best-selling items in our store. It’s easy to see why, too. These colorful pieces of fabric add color, whimsy and fun to a garden. What’s better is that they couldn’t be easier to include in your garden or backyard landscaping!

Many of our customers take advantage of the changing seasons, holidays and special occasions to swap out their outdoor garden flags. Continue reading Kimball Corner to learn more about our outdoor garden flags and how you can add some colorful fun to your landscaping, garden, deck or patio areas through the use of outdoor garden flags.

How to Install Garden Flags

All that’s needed, really, is a good garden flag pole from Miles Kimball and some imagination. Our convenient, easy-to-use metal garden flagpole fits our garden flags perfectly. The bottom stakes easily into the ground and the garden flag slides over the display. After that, the sky is the limit!

Where to Install Garden Flags

Wondering where to put your garden flags? Natural suggestions include adding them into your landscaping islands, including them in front porch areas, installing near patios and putting them near seating areas. For an outdoor lighting idea, an outdoor patio lighting idea or an outdoor lighting idea for the front of the house, consider using one of our outdoor solar LED lights to add some focus to your garden flag. Your garden flag will not only be a great addition to your garden’s daytime beauty, it will also be a focal point in the evening and nighttime hours as well! Add decorative garden flags to multiple places around your yard — even one of our personalized garden flags for an extra-special touch.

Spring Sunshine: Colorful and Charming Garden Flags

Spring is a great time to add some color to your garden. While you’re looking for easy flowers to grow for your garden, you can also incorporate one of Miles Kimball’s spring garden flags. Our spring garden flags add a pop of instant color to your garden — long before your first flowers pop up after a long, gray winter. We have a variety of fun and festive spring flags. Don’t miss our selection, including our personalized St. Patrick’s Day mini banner or our personalized St. Patrick’s Day garden flags, our Easter “He is Risen” garden flag and Easter Bunny garden flags.

Summer Sun Soaked Garden Flag Fun

Summertime sun means sun-drenched color, get-togethers with friends and family and more relaxed schedules that force us to slow down and enjoy each moment. Summer garden flags are beautiful ways to create some wonderful whimsy in your garden. Our delightful Happy Campers garden flag adds fun to your sidewalks or entry ways. Nothing says summer like a Mason jar full of vibrant, summery wildflowers. You’ll love our personalized Mason Jar Floral garden flag — add your name for a custom touch. For the greatest grandma, add our Grandma’s Garden of Love garden flag, which is personalized to feature all of the special sprouts in her life. Don’t forget to celebrate those summertime patriotic holidays! Show your allegiance to the red, white and blue with American flag-themed garden flags, our personalized Patriotic Eagle garden flag or our Patriotic Fireworks personalized garden flag.

Fall Festivities Garden Flags

With the end of summer, the earth’s colors turn from muted browns to brilliant reds, oranges and yellows. Many autumn-themed garden flags reflect these colors and are fun to swap out in your garden flag repertoire. Opt for fall fun garden flags that feature scarecrows, pumpkins, autumn leaf colors or fall holidays, like Halloween or Thanksgiving. There are so many fall garden flags to choose from — too many to choose just one. From our Autumn Greetings garden flag to our Happy Fall scarecrow garden flag, you’ll find a fun fall look for your landscaping.

Winter Garden Flags Wonders

Think that winter is drab and dreary? Think again! With winter garden flags, you can transform your outdoor areas to reflect the many festivities that wintertime has to offer. It’s natural to anticipate the holiday seasons, so swap out your fall Thanksgiving flag to a colorful Advent, Christmas or holiday-themed flag to kick off your outdoor holiday decorating scheme. From snowmen, snow and poinsettias to winter birds like cardinals and wintertime-themed garden flags, there are winter-themed garden flags available for everyone. Check out our Poinsettia garden flag, our Let it Snow garden flag and our welcome Snowman garden flag. When the holidays are over, Valentine’s Day can create some festive decorative color.

Easter Basket Ideas for All Ages

Pastel colors, chocolate bunnies and brightly dyed eggs are just a few of the things that make Easter such a fun holiday. It wouldn’t be Easter without baskets full of plastic eggs, candy and little toys, though. Depending on who you have on your list, it can be difficult to come up with the right Easter basket stuffers. That’s why we’ve gathered this list of Easter basket ideas for everyone, no matter their age.

Babies 

Easter basket ideas for babies might just be the hardest to come up with. You can’t fill them with all the traditional things like candy and small trinkets and toys, but there are still ways to make those first Easters special for little ones. 

When it comes to babies, it’s a good idea to get a soft, plush Easter basket instead of a woven one. These are safer for infants and will give them a more tactile experience with the basket. With a personalized plush basket, you can also have a cute keepsake that can be held on to for years to remember the baby’s first Easter with. 

Stuffed animals are a great toy to put in a baby’s Easter basket. Any stuffed animal will work, but you can’t go wrong with a plush bunny for the holiday. This will be something the baby can play with, sleep with or have as a personalized decoration in their room.

While babies shouldn’t be given traditional Easter candy, you can still put some special treats in their baskets. Yogurt snacks, applesauce and cereal puffs are perfect sweet treats to help babies celebrate the holiday with you.

Don’t be afraid to include more practical and useful items in a baby Easter basket as well. Pacifiers, teething rings and bottles are wonderful additions to a basket, especially if you can find Easter and spring-themed ones. You can also never go wrong with Easter clothing like hats or shirts. 

Toddlers

Coming up with Easter basket ideas for toddlers is a little easier. They are at an age where they can enjoy more sweets and play with more toys than they could in their infant years. However, it’s still a good idea to go with a soft personalized Easter basket in case it ends up getting thrown around. Having one with a stuffed animal backing will also give them something to play with. 

Toddlers can have more fun with the toys in their baskets, but you want to avoid anything that’s too small and can pose a choking hazard. Wind up bunny toys are an Easter staple and will keep your toddler entertained for hours as they watch it hop around the floor. An Easter flip doll will give toddlers a two-in-one plush toy perfect for Easter storytelling and adventures. 

You want to be careful with what candy you include in your toddler’s basket, staying away from hard candies. However, jelly beans and chocolate are Easter classics that make for good egg and basket stuffers. Put the jelly beans in an Easter treat jar to combine candy and fun. 

Teens

Teenagers may think they’re too cool for Easter baskets, but deep down they still want one. Finding Easter basket ideas for teens that they will enjoy can be hard. You need to find the right balance of fun without being cheesy. You’ll want to go with a more sophisticated wicker Easter basket. This lets you give them a traditional basket without it being something they’ll see as too childish. 

Teens likely aren’t going to want the same toys you gave them as children, such as sidewalk chalk, bubbles and dolls. However, a classic personalized stuffed bunny is something they can keep on a shelf or place on their bed. Tiny versions of toys they used to have growing up are also a great option. Toys like the World’s Smallest™ Magic 8 Ball ® will give them the nostalgia of an old toy but in a cooler form. 

Candy is the easiest part of a teen’s Easter basket. Simply find your teen’s favorite candy or chocolate to fill the basket. You can also get creative and surprise your teen with something different. A milk chocolate dinosaur egg will appear to be a traditional chocolate Easter egg, but when you’re teen looks inside they’ll be amused to find three miniature chocolate dinosaurs. It’s exactly the kind of twist a teen Easter basket needs. 

Adults

Don’t leave the adults out of all the Easter time fun. Easter basket ideas for adults might look a little different than those for kids and teens. 

Instead of toys, look for trinkets and decorations you can put in an adult’s Easter basket. Spring themed figurines are something fun you can include. They will look great on a friend’s or family member’s knickknack shelf. Another unique idea for adults is an Easter-themed picture frame. If they have kids, this is a wonderful way for them to remember those special Easters by. For more religious adults, you can include a beautiful Easter suncatcher with a Christian poem on it. 

Adults are just as into sweet treats as the kids, so don’t leave the candy out of their baskets. You might want to choose something other than candy necklaces and bubble gum, though. Some good candy ideas of adults are dark chocolate marshmallow eggs and coconut bonbons

Holiday Supplies for Easter and Beyond

Miles Kimball has you covered when it comes to supplies for holidays and special occasions. From Christmas to Mother’s Day, we’ve got what you need to celebrate. 

Vintage Décor for Christmas – Festive, Fun & Affordable

The smell of fresh pine needles, the beauty of twinkling lights, creamy-sweet eggnog, vibrant packages trimmed with satin bows — these are just a few of our best Christmas memories. Bring back those cozy, age-old feelings of Christmas nostalgia with these fun, affordable vintage items, available right here at Miles Kimball. What better way to enjoy the holiday than to feel like a kid again?

1. Vintage Resin Reindeer, Set of 3:

This adorable set of figurines is likely to make you flash back to the original 1964 television production, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” Remember Rudolph and his friends: Sam the Snowman, Donner the Reindeer (and Mrs. Donner), Yukon Cornelius and Clarice the Doe? And of course, don’t leave out the Abominable Snowman and Hermey the Elf/dentist.

Each figurine in this sturdy reindeer set is authentically detailed and specially decorated with a Christmas bell around its neck. The trio makes a charming adornment for a table, mantel, windowsill, or alongside other retro holiday décor.

2. Tin Fire Engine Ornament:

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, ornaments made from tin, inspired by mechanical toys being manufactured in Germany at that time, became popular. Brightly colored via lithograph, these ornaments were miniature works of art. In fond remembrance of this historical Christmas ornament style, our fire engine ornament is crafted from tin and detailed in brilliant color. Even more fun are the spinning wheels and moving ladder. Complete the vintage effect with other tin ornaments, including our Tin Bi-Plane Ornament and Tin Locomotive Ornament.

3. Battery-Operated Vintage-Style Ceramic Tree:

The Christmas tree is the most traditional holiday icon, and this special ceramic tree is distinctively inspired by holiday décor from the 1960s and ‘70s. Maybe you even painted and kiln-fired a tree like this yourself a few decades ago. Brightly lit by multicolored, battery-operated mini-lights, this Christmas tree doesn’t drop needles. It stands beautifully anywhere in your home, shining with color for hours on two AA batteries. Timer-operated, the tree will sparkle without your worrying about “on/off” or electric cords and outlets.

4. Vintage Candolier Lights:

Our retro candolier lights instantly bring a warm Christmas glow to your home. A delightful addition to any holiday theme, they add a touch of calm inspiration through their steadfast radiating beams. Detailed right down to the “wax” drip, the candolier lights are perfect for a mantel. Better yet, purchase several and place them in the front windows of your home, to bring holiday cheer to all who pass by. C7 bulbs are included and are replaceable with any color C7 bulb.

5. Special Magic Coca Cola Puzzle 1000 pieces:

What could be more “vintage” than Coca Cola, which has been quenching thirsts and tickling tongues for over 125 years? This challenging, 1000-piece puzzle will provide your holiday guests and family members with hours of entertainment. Watch the festive images of Santa with children, elves, gifts, a toy train — and bottles of Coca Cola, naturally — emerge as the pieces are correctly placed. The completed puzzle makes a cheery tabletop display during the holidays. Just don’t bump into the table, because you’ll have to start all over again.

6. Vintage Bottle Brush Wreath by Holiday Peak:

In 1930, the Addis Brush Company fashioned the first artificial, green-dyed, bottle-brush Christmas tree. The Addis tree was one of the earliest forms of artificial trees. Twenty years later, they patented their “silver pine” bottle brush tree. Hearkening back to these times, our 14” diameter bottle brush wreath is flocked in white and embellished with gleaming, multicolored mini-ornaments. Pretty and festive, this retro-style Christmas decoration is fun and unique, carrying with it a bit of holiday history.

7. Vintage Holiday Tree Vinyl Table Cover by Chef’s Pride:

This drop-style table cover, constructed of heavy-gauge vinyl, is adorned with retro Christmas images — traditional green trees and white snowflakes against a red-and-white gingham background. Remember decorating Christmas cookies on a tablecloth like this? Of course, since the vinyl surface is easy to wipe clean. Plus, the reverse side is lined with soft polyester that won’t scratch your table. Enjoy holiday meals on this table cover, while imagining yourself back in your grandma’s kitchen.

8. Personalized Merry Mason Jar Christmas Card Set of 20:

Carrying the vintage style into your Christmas cards, the Merry Mason Jar Christmas card is inspired by the wonder of snow globes. The cards are die-cut in the shape of a mason jar, and decorated with the scene of an old-time automobile transporting a Christmas pine through the snow. The artwork extends to the back of the card, and the set comes with coordinating envelopes. Even better, this unforgettable greeting can be individualized with the names of your friends and family.

Like Christmas itself, vintage décor never goes out of style. Start your collection now and enjoy adding to it over the years of holidays to come. Both you and your home during this special season will become known as true “classics.”

Personalized Christmas Ornaments | 9 Favorite Themes

Life consists of moments, each one different than the one before it. But some moments — or combined moments — stand out as exceptional. Maybe it was the moment you met the person you married, or the moment you saw your infant child for the first time. Or perhaps it was the day you graduated college, or the Christmas you shared with a special friend who has since passed away. However many extraordinary moments we have had before they were replaced by the next, we can recall them and celebrate them through something symbolic, something as simple as a personalized ornament unique to us.In honor of all your moments, we at Miles Kimball are proud to offer what is arguably the largest variety of personalized ornaments anywhere, providing a forever remembrance of cherished people, events and milestones:

A newly born baby, a couple just married, a beloved son, daughter, brother or sister, or a loved one who has passed — all are family.

At Miles Kimball, personalization is always free. The most important thing to remember after you’ve chosen your favorites is to provide all the names you want included on each ornament, spelled correctly; plus any additional information you want on the ornament, such as date of birth or weight of a newborn, an anniversary date, or perhaps a special message you’ve written.
