Christmas decorations in January?

I know I've seen Halloween window decorations in September, so would Christmas decorations the first week of January be appropriate? We'll be there for marathon weekend.

we went christmas week of 08, stayed at pofq. we did lights in the window with the purples, pinks, greens etc...they use in the hotel decorations there each year. we also did a 3 foot fake pink christmas tree which we put on the table in front of the window. it had all princess and pirate decorations on it. we also put up inexpensive mardi gras masks on it as well. they were also hanging from the lights. we wanted to add in something of the resorts theme with our christmas stay. unfortunately the pics are on my back up not my computer...ugh. but i would certainly decorate going for any or no specific occasion in which case i'd do something that said we're here...after all any day at the world is better than a day at home or work.

Sorry I just saw this. We bought them there the year before. I'm not sure if they had them this past year.

Summer Ideas!!??

I'm looking for some good ideas for decorating a window and door at POFQ for the summer. Thinking about using some Mardi Gras beads, but I think I need strands of them to frame the window. Any ideas appreciated!!! Last year we were at CBR and we decorated with Luau stuff we got at the end of school year that a lot of party stores have for graduation parties. But that won't really work at POFQ.

We did a very simple window this time because our printer broke.

If anyone is going to Disney Valentines day or Easter check out Dollar Tree (if you have one in your area). They have cute disney window clings for these holidays. Some are Mickey and the gang, others have Tinkerbell. I wish I was going just to decorate a window

Has anyone used the Gel Clings on the windows at Disney? Do they leave a film when you take them off or do they leave the window clean?

I use these Scotch tabs at home to stick Christmas stuff down and have never had a problem with them leaving anything behind....they are kinda like a gel tab but not a gooey tab.

I am wondering if anyone has actually measured a moderate room window? I am very anxious to decorate my window at POR French Quarter and am looking at decorations. I want to be sure that I have enough
