The Hallmark Christmas Movie aesthetic of Greenville is undeniable, and the decor throughout the city is no exception.
Enter: Window Wonderland and Poinsettia Postcards. These installations, found along Main Street and around downtown Greenville (see them on this map), showcase the artistic magic the city’s organizations, businesses, and creatives have to offer.
We’re taking a look at each installation and sharing how you can play a part in choosing the winner of each.
From the West End to North Main Street, 15 storefronts are decked out in unique holiday decor.
Some designs are inspired by classic holiday movies, like Falls Park Dentistry’s “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” decor while others leaned into their own business concepts, like Bloom Bridal’s greenery gown.
View each window online or take a stroll down Main Street to see each in person and vote for your favorite.
If you like receiving postcards in the mail, you’ll love seeing those that stand 5+ feet tall.
The 25 wooden postcards that pepper Main Street’s plazas were constructed and designed by local school groups and organizations, like Greenville High School, Visit Greenville, and the Greenville Zoo.
Much like the Window Wonderland displays, each postcard is uniquely designed based on the organization’s purpose, like “Reindeer Parking” by the City of Greenville Parking, or on a familiar theme or local landmark, like “The Poinsett Bridge” by Eastside High School Art Club and NAHS.
