With just a week left before Christmas, now is the time for last-minute gifts, stocking stuffers, and putting the finishing touches on your holiday celebrations.
Your Doorstep Greeting
Greet your guests as soon as they reach your door with a festive doormat, evergreen wreath, or evergreen porch pot. Make it fun for people to drive through and see how cozy the whole hood looks!
Your Table Settings
A centerpiece placed in the middle of your table says — sit down, relax, we’re glad you’re here and it’s time for a special meal together. You can make your own centerpiece with natural or faux materials, or just grab a pre-made one. Go big and fancy or keep it low key — just a little table setting makes a big difference.
The Christmas Tree
A good Christmas tree serves as the backdrop to the entire holiday season. Ornaments, bows, garlands, and more. Make your tree jolly and bright.
Small treats for someone to use: a bar of soap, a candle, a field guide, a tree ornament, a pair of socks.
Setting the Mood
Little cozy touches like pine cones, garlands, winterberries, sleigh bells, fairy lights, and other fresh or faux materials set the stage for a special occasion. A garland wrapped in fairy lights, draped over you fireplace mantle. A seasonal kitchen towel. A small basket of pine cones. A big red bow on the staircase landing. Little things can go a long way.
Big, bold Poinsettias announce the Christmas season every year. Cyclamen, Christmas Cactus, Lemon Cypress Trees, and Kalanchoe bring bold colors into your home.
Your Home Fragrance
One of the best parts of the season is the smell of evergreens. It’s a relaxing, nostalgic scent, and a pleasure to bring indoors every winter. Balsam Sachets, Wintergreen Candles, and scented soaps and lotions in the bathroom give a clean and fresh presentation.
