With the clock ticking away until Christmshutterstock_235167862as, it’s time to get your home in tip top shape for the holiday. Whether you’re having a lavish celebration with friends and family, or are expecting lots of drop in visitors throughout the season, there’s more to sprucing up the house than simply putting up a Christmas tree and having lights inside and outside.


Christmas Cactus

Christmas Cactus

Capture the festive spirit of Christmas and the holiday season in every room in your house. You can do it with something as simple as a Christmas cactus, and enjoy it’s blooms and interesting leaves beyond the holidays. Put a Norfolk Island Pine – decorated with ornaments and holiday bows in a bedroom, a guest room or other bright room. It will give your guests the feeling of having a tiny Christmas tree in their room.

 Create ambiance throughout the house – by putting a deliciously fragrant Cinnamon Cider Basket on console tables, on a table in your entryway, or even an end table. The scent of cinnamon that comes from the real sticks, goes beautifully with fresh apples, neatly nestled in a basket with holiday greenery, pine cones and a whimsical bow.
