Christmas at Vanderwees Home and Garden
Our Christmas Display officially opens along with our first Craft Fair on the first weekend in November.
We love Christmas here at Vanderwees, and so we start planning for it before the current Christmas is even over! Starting in January and February, we attend a variety of Christmas shows in order to find the latest and most unique home decor to fill our retail centre for the next year.
This year is no exception! When we started unpacking our fantastic selection of christmas ornaments, plush santas and snowmen, wreaths, garlands, lights, candles, and more back in July, we were thrilled to start putting it all together.
During the fall season we begin the set up of our Christmas Display which takes up close to half of our retail area and extends into the greenhouse and outdoor living areas. Due to the magnitude of our display it takes up a number of weeks to set up, so if you visit us in the fall you will likely turn a corner and be met with the beginnings of one of our themed trees.
Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a poinsettia, grown right here in our greenhouses. In red, and white, and displayed in our festive seasonal pots, these classic plants make a great hostess gift, and a perfect centrepiece for your table.
Looking for a different plant this season? Try a Christmas cactus. These colourful bloomers produce their flowers year after year, and are low-maintenance plants year-round.
Or, for an exotic look, consider an amaryllis. With large, trumpet-shaped blooms, these stunning plants add a feel of the tropics to your home. They bloom from a bulb, and can be cut back and kept to bloom the next season.
If you love the smell or look of fresh greenery at Christmas then be sure to stop by our Fresh Greens area! Full of fresh arrangements ready to be placed directly outdoors, along with greenery and decor for individual purchase. Looking for something specific? We can accommodate custom arrangements for your home, business, or even for a gift!
