We decorated our window at Pop last year and I am trying to come up with a theme for us for this year at CBR. I don't really care if anyone sees it but us, but it is fun when someone sees it and comments! Last year I took one of my DD's old locker dry-erase boards that has a magnet on it and put it on our door. We would come back with little messages or something people drew on it. Everyone was nice, I was worried that someone would spoil the magic and write something rude, but they never did. Here is my daughter and our window last year...

and the door (I didn't do a lot with the door besides the wipe board)

Thank you so much! I love looking at all the pictures of everyone's window decor so definitely wanted to share ours. I loved our Alice and the Unbirthday theme, my favorite part was probably the flamingo lights, though. lol I loved seeing them all lit up when we came back to the room at night. So cheery! Even our Mousekeeper said she liked them!

I am having such a hard time thinking up a new one. Since we will be at CBR I am thinking Princesses in Paradise but haven't fully committed on that yet. My 18 yr old DD is actually going this trip (it is usually just DD13 and I), so I am trying to stick with an all girls theme.

BTW...I'm OTP, too. Hi from Marietta!

We're in Woodstock and it's always me an my girls too (ages 10 and 12). I'm working on our December window already! Hobby Lobby had all their scrapbooking paper 50% last week. I'm going to stick with my mickey heads hanging on fish line design (there are pics of my windows in some previous posts). I will probably do lights as well; like you I love the look of it at night! I wish more people would decorate their windows, it's so much fun!

Pop Windows

Would anyone happen to know the dimensions of the windows at Pop?

Are you allowed to use small Command hooks for decorating the window?

I used suction cup hooks. They were right by the Command hooks at Target, but I thought they would be better just in case I couldn't get the sticky stuff off. The suction cups worked great. Held up my light strand and were clear so you didn't really even see them.

That's what I thought, thanks!

I don't think we'll take string lights- too much space in the suitcase and we're limited on weight, but we'll have a banner to stick up.

These are awesome!

Nature Mom, I love your Alice theme. That white board is such a good idea! Did you take snapshots of the messages when you got back before you cleaned it for the next day?

I always think about making decorations for the windows but never end up doing anything. I am now really keen to come up with something for ours for our next trip

I've never decorated an hotel room but after seeing this thread (and all the awesome windows) I think I'd like to do it. Would be fun for DD.

But regarding the lights, if you go to the parks in the morning and come back at night you can't really leave those on, all day, right ? would'nt that be a fire hazard ?

Thanks
