Glitterville Pop!

Through Dec. 26.

This might be what the Christmas Eve baby shower for Tim Burton and Kameron Westcott’s love child would look like. Where else could you find princess wands and crowns, party-hatted camels, and a tree constructed of oversize papier-mâché tacos and pink avocados? Swoozie’s founder Kelly Plank-Dworkin wanted to give a gift to the city she once called home when her late husband was CEO of Neiman Marcus. So she took over the former We Yogis space on Lovers Lane, painted the whole thing pink, and brought in Glitterville creator Stephen Brown to pack it with his whimsical creations. And voila: the only holiday pop-up in the nation by Oprah’s decorator.

5600 W. Lovers Ln., Ste. 150.

Enchant Christmas
Nov. 26–Jan. 2.

After last February’s big freeze, we’re ready for a kinder, gentler world of artificial ice and snow. Fair Park has it covered with a magical frost-free wonderland of twinkly lights galore. Chocolate-drizzled soft pretzels and literally lit-up cocktails are all the icing we need. Tickets start at $19 for kids and $20 for adults.

The Esplanade at Fair Park, 3809 Grand Ave.

The Nasher & AMEICO Holiday Pop-Up Shop
Nov. 3–Jan. 9.

The museum’s gift shop has been shuttered for much of the pandemic, but a seasonal collab with design distributor AMEICO will reopen its doors. You’ll find artful gifts such as Kumagai ceramics, IZIPIZI eyewear, Yamagiwa lighting, and—for the person with too many nutcrackers—a handcrafted Sophie Taeuber-Arp marionette.

Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora St.
