If you work in retail the hustle and bustle is almost completely unavoidable this time of year, but even after 12 years of working at Cedar Grove Gardens I am still delighted and enchanted by our magical holiday displays that are created throughout the store. My feelings seem to toggle between excitement, nostalgia and melancholy. People come from near and far to have a custom wreath made by our very popular “Bow Ladies”. Our shop is filled with unexpected decorative touches. I enjoy hearing stories from our customers about how they browse the shop and take home little pieces of inspiration to add to their own holiday decor, or how they learn from the staff about how to stretch their budget by incorporating a pretty flower arrangement that includes white amaryllis that they can enjoy for both the Christmas and New Years holiday, now that’s what I call twice as nice!
We certainly have unique finds at very merry prices but I truly believe that the best gift you can receive is the gift of giving. I think the important thing to remember is that it is not all about the money. The best presents, the ones that make the holiday brighter, fuller and more meaningful are the ones that cost very little or next to nothing. Cook an extra meal for a special needs family, help your busy friend friend wrap presents or put toys together, walk the dog or watch the children for families who need the extra time to make their holiday a bit more special. Don’t just walk by the toys for tots box or sock drive for the homeless, put something in it. Instead of just signing your name to the bottom of that Christmas card, take a moment to write a sincere note of thanks to those who have helped you out this year. Remember the gift of time, or of yourself has a higher value than what you can purchase and at such a busy time, we don’t want to lose sight of that. So don’t forget to apply that same creativity that you apply to decorating your tree to your gift giving this season.
Come in and browse our selection of hidden treasures and roam about freely while listening to our calming selection of background music. Our shop has a certain charm and ambiance this time of year. The smell of pine from candles, sachet’s, incense and wreaths are just amazing!
May you have health, happiness and love this year and many years to come but don’t forget to have fun making smiles and memories along the way.
