Soffieria De Carlini now has its own permanent showroom at AmericasMart in Atlanta. This is a huge step for a little family company with only five full-time employees.
Company head Luca Terruzzi has reorganized the production schedule. Anticipating increased orders, he has shifted production for independent retailers from September to the spring and early summer.
For Celebrate365.com and its collectors, this news is both good and bad.
— The positive: customers might receive their order as early as June or July instead of November or December.
— The negative: Celebrate365 will have very limited time to accept pre-orders, adjust quantities for styles ordered in January and to place special orders for collectors. In other words, I need to refocus the way I’ve been doing business as well!
With these changes in mind, the website is now accepting pre-orders along with special request orders for De Carlini ornaments shown online. The 2018 collection is up and pre-ordering status is enabled.
In addition, many 2017 designs have been reactivated along with time-honored favorites. Those styles are available for your special order.
Pre-Order Deadline: MARCH 31
I will not be able to adjust my order numbers after that final date.
So, take a look! Feel free to pre-order your favorites for later shipment. And, take advantage of the free shipping offered on specific styles … be sure to fully read the ornament description. It tells you if a specific style will ship for free. And, finally … I will be saying “adios” to the beach on March 7. I’ll be back to “real life” in western Ohio soon.
All of those years in the classroom, teaching vocabulary and conjugating verbs … I never dreamed those experiences might lead to this … 7 weeks renting a Mexican home on the Gulf of Mexico coast.
My GOOD news might be BAD news for you … the web site is open and you can browse and place orders. Of course, since I am in Mexico, I can’t SHIP anything to you until sometime in mid-March. We will be returning home to landlocked western Ohio on March 7.
Keep checking the Celebrate365 Facebook page, along with my personal one, to find out what we are doing. I’ll also check in here from time to time to give you updates on new designs and some suggestions about how to make the most of the web site options and functions that you might not be aware of.

“Please join us for a tour of our home decorated for Christmas and the Holidays! This year we are doing a 12 part series based on theme! This segment focuses on an Asian influenced display in our home!”
This Colorado couple has been longtime friends … and yes, I’ve been known to sell them some of the ornaments seen in this Twelve Days of Christmas series. I was captivated by this imaginative Asian theme display. The artistry and meticulous display take my breath away. At the very end of this video segment, you will see a small collection of Thomas Glenn Holidays ornaments on the upper shelf of the curio cabinet.
Check out the other daily segments. They are equally inspiring.
My friends, thank you for allowing me to share your magical Christmas displays. It’s almost like being there!
