Personalized Holiday Décor is Here!

It’s mid-October which means it is 100 percent socially acceptable to be planning for holiday décor. We actually listed all holiday goods in our online shop back in September, but now we’re ready for full-blown holiday mood.



Our year-round focuses at Laura Hooper Calligraphy are wedding stationery & handwritten calligraphy, as well as teaching the art of pointed pen through in-person and online courses. However, we’re now at our personal favorite time of year where we are happily buried in pumpkins and ornaments that we custom personalize by hand. We ship worldwide but also offer convenient (and free!) pickup here locally at our Old Town Alexandria studio.




The full-size pumpkins are perfect for porch décor, mantle installations, bar carts & of course your Thanksgiving tabletop. The mini-pumpkins make perfect “place cards” for your holiday dinner as well. Your guests will love seeing their name beautifully hand-lettered and it’s such a lovely keepsake.



Our custom ornaments are a memorable way to mark any life events from the past year including engagements, weddings, baby’s 1st Christmas & more. We offer a variety of colors and styles to suit your preferred Christmas color-scheme and of course, each one is personalized by hand.



Our poinsettia pots & ceramic votives come in multiple colors & styles and make thoughtful hostess gifts for any of your holiday soirées.
