The holidays are all about home, family, friends, and traditions. Make this year’s holiday season more beautiful than ever before with an inspiring trip to Countryside Flower Shop, Nursery and Garden Center. Our elves have been busy decorating and creating beautiful looks to inspire you with everything from elegant themes like, “Indigo Blue” to whimsical fun like, “Christmas on the Farm,” “Holiday Hoot” and our life-size “Gingerbread House of Sweet Treats.” From the moment you walk in, it is as if you have entered the North Pole with Santa’s finest décor and jolliest of elves. Lush garland and designer bows adorn every window and doorway. Stroll from one end to the other to enjoy the Countryside feeling while you shop for unique ornaments, beautiful evergreen planters and homegrown poinsettias of every size and color. Planning to get your own decorating underway? Countryside offers these tips:
1. Do a tree inventory
Pull out your pre-lit tree today and make sure your lights are working. Have some burned out bulbs? Countryside offers tree light repairs beginning Nov. 1. Perhaps it is time for a new tree? Stop in now to select the perfect Christmas tree from our life-like selection of pre-lit artificial trees or our forest of fresh-cut trees, arriving the week of Thanksgiving.
2. Get creative when decking the halls
Don’t miss out on the beauty of silk flowers, ribbon and decorative picks. Select a ribbon and silk flowers that tie in with the colors of your room or are the colors you want to highlight for the season. Incorporate them into your tree, wreath and garlands. Create a centerpiece or accent arrangement using smaller spare pieces. You will be amazed at how it will bring all of your decor together for a designer look adding depth and continuity throughout. Stop in to see what a difference silk botanicals can make or watch for our “How-To Tuesday” videos on our website, FaceBook or Instagram pages starting Nov. 3. We will walk you through how to “Plant Amaryllis,” “Create a Thanksgiving Centerpiece,” “Decorate Your Wreath,, “Create a Holiday Planter.” Keeping checking in for more.
3. Stock up on fun finds
You can’t go wrong with scented candles, soaps, snowmen, snow globes, sweet treats and reindeer. We have something for everyone. Stop in or shop our online store for curbside pickup.
