It is tradition to mark the coming of Christmas with advent calendars, advent means coming in Latin. Advent calendars are traditionally a large rectangular card with windows to open, one each day until the last one on Christmas eve. These days there are many different versions of advent calendars and we have some gorgeous ones at Flamingo Paperie!
We have advent calendars and advent calendar cards. Starting with the advent calendars, my favourite this year is the Winter Village advent calendar. Instead of doors to open it has characters to slot in each day to build up the scene during December and is just such a beautiful design!
My best seller for a few years now has been the Reindeer Stables advent calendar, and I am delighted to see it in the range again this year. Again you slot in a character each day to create the full picture of the stables during advent.
Whilst I was at an event last week I opened up and set up two of the advent calendars for my display. They always sell well when I have some opened up on display and people can see what is inside. The Reindeer Stables was one, and I also set up the Nativity Stable advent calendar. This one is a bit different again as some characters you slot in and some characters are free standing at the front of the advent calendar. I had a fantastic time arranging the characters to create the Nativity scene!
We have three more advent calendars on the range. The last one I am going to look at here is the Tower of London advent calendar. This one often catches people out as there are some characters to slot in but also some doors to open too!
To view all of the gorgeous advent calendars visit teresa4cards.co.uk. They are £9 each and can be used year after year. We are on our 3rd year of the ones we have at home!
We also a beautiful range of advent calendar cards, and at just £2.75 each they are excellent value for a special card to send. And at 6x6 inches they will post as a standard letter. Just remember to send it early in time for the start of advent! Here are some of my favourites!
That's all for now, I hope you have enjoyed looking at some of the advent calendars. For more Christmas goodies, join my online shopping evening by clicking the button!
