Christmas Throw Pillows >> Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls
We happened upon this great Tiny Prints instagram today and had to re-post it. We love the idea of adding just a touch of holiday cheer to every room in your house. You do not need to decorate every inch of the room from floor to ceiling, just add a couple of fabulous holiday throw pillows here and there and you are set. We come across lots of pillows every single day and so far, these Tiny Prints Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls pillow are our hands down favorites. As we come across other pillows we like, we will continue to update this post.
Now that Tiny Prints is part of Shutterfly we just cannot garner the same enthusiasm for the company or their products. These days we are more likely to turn to Zazzle or when we are looking for something special.
One more thought >> these pillows would make lovely holiday & hostess gifts!

In fact, we are always surprised at how much it actually costs to host friends and relatives.
