2. Make it Classy and Classic at Rosehill Gardens

Looking for refinements to top off your decorative effort? Or maybe a splash of color to steal the show? Try the Garden Center inside Rosehill Gardens, where you can buy classic Douglas Fir and White Pine live greens as well as hard-to-find Magnolia. Get them loose, by the pound, or have the staff make a beautiful porch pot just for you! Poinsettias and authentic adornments, from the elegant to the whimsical, are also options for a naturally inspired holiday on the home-front.

3. Shop Seasonal Charm at Sidelines

You already know Sidelines Custom Floral for world-class arrangements, and during December you’ll find even more inside this Martin City original. In addition to fresh-cut flowers rich in bold colors, Sidelines is offering seasonal gifts and other treasures displayed in holiday themed showcases. Santa’s elves tell us Amaryllis flowers and Christmas Cactus are hot this year, and if you don’t get your hands on a swirling liquid snow lantern, you might regret it.

Step off the beaten holiday path to uncover the exotic, nostalgic, and unusual at Gilded Lily, a unique boutique inside an original Martin City house built in 1905. Owner Debbie Beachner has collected an array of eclectic decor that’s wonderfully traditional in spirit. Festive oversized lawn ornaments, porcelain Santas, candles, wrapping paper, wax seals, seasonal throw pillows — the holidays at Gilded Lily are anything but typical.
