Any suggestions? Is this normal for her?
I called (I never emailed, I only contacted her by phone)
Someone else answered and I asked to speak with Shirley

Hi all,
First time posting so please be gentle! We are cruising on the Dream on 22 Dec 13 for the first time, heading over from the UK. I am desperate for a tree or decorations of some description in our room (DD is only 4 and thinks Santa will leave her presents somewhere else and is stressing already! ). Seeing these fantastic spreads by Shirley made me think I may be able to avoid my (planned in my head, not yet revealed to DH!) whistle stop trip around Walmart to grab a tree on way to the port.
Does anyone have pics of Christmas packages Shirley offers and how early they must be ordered? I understand April may be just a LITTLE bit early!
Also, anyone from the UK got tips on how they ordered and paid for things?
Thank you in advance,
Jill

If you look back on this thread to Nov and Dec, you might find some links to trees available. Disney has one but it is very small and expensive.

I tried to get a little one at Walgreens (a drug store) in Ft Lauderdale a few days before Christmas and was told those trees were long gone. There are only a few that will be allowed - no real tree, no electric lights, etc, so waiting until Port Canaveral may not be a good plan.

However, we were fine in our room without a tree. I put our little stack of gifts on the coffee table, with our stockings from home (it isn't Christmas without our stockings). DCL gives you several gifts. MANY kids had signs on the doors directing Santa to their rooms.

For gifts, think small!

Jill, Shirley does really cute DCL approved Christmas decor. You can go to her website and have a looksee and search this thread. She will customise it as close as she can to what you want, as far as little ornaments, etc. She usuallt wants 2 weeks notice, but for Christmas, she may need more. If you are on Facebook, she has a page there, you can message her, too!

I believe she can. She does ones with wine also. You'd have to be brand specific.

I'm sure if you go back several pages you can find the posts about the trees... I got this pic off of Shirleys FB page (I didn't think she'd mind...) I do remember that you had to order early as these were limited additions...

We got one and it was GREAT!!! You had to order EARLY and they went quick!!! They were $100 but well worth it. It was incredible to come back to the room and see the tree lit and smell the room; she added fresh greens and it smelled like Christmas!!! Would order again in a heartbeat!

I can be brand specific for sure! Cool! I think having a beer basket waiting in the cabin for my DH will be way more fun than carrying on beer ourselves. Fun!

I want to apologize for not answering your email, but I really don't remember seeing it and somtime it goes into my spam and I will delete since my home computer ended up with over 900 virus and had to take it in to be fixed so now I am so careful of what I open especially if it is in the spam folder

Anyhow if you will resend it to snelsonbrown@aol.com, I promise that I will print it and read it and answer it...honest
Again please accept my sincere apology
Always with mucho love
Shirley

We have all types of beer barrel baskets including the one called "Around The World" that also brings cheese, crackers and sausage....they make up very pretty.

Just give us a call at 800-950-4559 also remember our website www.theperfectgift.cc is being updated and will take a while to get it all fixed up for you.

Thanks for all your patience and love especially during the loss of my little furbaby Tia Maria that so many of you knew...

Hugsssssssssss from me to you......always and forever

That's great, thank you so much for the info from everyone. I closed my Facebook page a few years ago but I feel that I may have to get back on with this planning to be done!

I'm definitely going to get a tree and a gift basket/bucket for my 4 year old to have for CC.

Shirley, I will be in touch- most likely via email as call charges from UK could be better put towards some more goodies from you!

Just to clarify - you don't have to be on FB to view Shirley's stuff. Her page is open to everyone. I'm not on FB & saw pics of the tree. You actually need to call the shop to order anyways!
