Why do we decorate?

We decorate for parties, for visitors, to express our joy for the season, to have a little fun with our homes and our spaces,  to create a wonderland for young children and to evoke some oooos and ahhhhs even from ourselves--Nothing quite compares to the quiet calm of a dark morning as you take in the glow of the holiday lights and sip your coffee.

We decorate for parties, for visitors, to express our joy for the season, to have a little fun with our homes and our spaces,  to create a wonderland for young children and to evoke some oooos and ahhhhs even from ourselves–Nothing quite compares to the quiet calm of a dark morning as you take in the glow of the holiday lights and sip your coffee.

You don’t need to be in the decorating of school of Martha Stewart or even Clark Griswold(as we joke here) to decorate, but simple additions to your home, like greens on the mantle and a poinsettia on the table can transform your home into holiday habitat fit for the aforementioned people in your life and, most importantly, you.

Sunnyside Gardens closes for the winter months, starting December 22nd, and we are lucky enough to be given a chance to spend time with our loved ones before we get wrapped back up in our gardening passion.

Enjoy this holiday season with loved ones and be sure to make a little time for quite and calm and enjoying the beauty that is all around us.
