Transform Your Home for the Holidays at Countryside Flower Shop and Nursery’s Holiday Open House


The Holidays are all about home, family, friends and traditions. To help make those traditions even more memorable, the elves at Countryside Flower Shop and Nursery, in Crystal Lake, have transformed the shop into a winter wonderland for its Annual Holiday Open House, November 17 and 18.

From the moment you walk in, it’s as if you enter into the North Pole with Santa’s finest décor. Select the perfect Christmas tree from the forest of fresh cut trees or pre-lit trees, up to 12 feet tall.

“Families love to come all dressed up and have their holiday picture taken among the sea of poinsettias or in front of our beautifully decorated Christmas trees,” said Countryside Marketing and Special Events Coordinator Marcy Cronin. “This year the Sugar Plum Fairy and some of her friends will also be joining us for a Meet and Greet both days from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.!”

Be inspired by more than twenty themed Christmas trees, lush garland and designer bows adorning every window and doorway, unique ornaments, beautiful evergreen planters and greenhouses filled with poinsettias of every size and color.

“We grow over 4,000 poinsettias in many different colors and sizes to meet our customers’ needs,” said Lori Harms, Greenhouse Manager/Grower. “Because they are grown here locally and cared for by our professional staff, their quality is second to none. They make the perfect gift. We are happy to offer delivery of our homegrown poinsettias throughout the greater Chicagoland area, so keep us in mind for corporate gift giving.”  

Too busy to decorate? Countryside’s professional staff will install and  take-down your Holiday decorations so you can have more time to enjoy family and friends.
