Holiday Home Décor Inspired by Casa de Bandini and Bazaar del Mundo


If you’ve visited Casa de Bandini lately, you may have noticed our restaurant is alive with the holiday spirit. But did you know that much of our décor comes from the same artists and vendors found at Bazaar del Mundo in Old Town?

Throughout the Shops, you’ll find a large collection of wonderfully dressed Christmas trees adorned with hand-crafted ornaments, Mexican paper flowers, colorful ribbons, and – for something a little out of the ordinary – creative folk art masks, dolls and gourd ornaments. These pieces of art are stunning on a tree or as gifts!

If you’re searching for holiday pieces to decorate your mantel or dining room table, Bazaar del Mundo has a wide selection of hand-carved nativities and festive poinsettia table runners that will add holiday cheer to your home.

The holidays will be here before you know it! Visit Bazaar del Mundo in Old Town to find unique décor items from all over the world that will help turn your home into a holiday oasis. And, if you’re looking to host a holiday party at home, consider Casa de Bandini for your catering needs. We can bring the holiday fiesta to you!
