Christmas Collections for Every Home

By Karen Velehoski, Merrifield Design Specialist

The holidays are a special time at Merrifield Garden Center. From the moment you walk in the door, you’re immersed in the charming sights, scents and spirit of the season.

One of my favorite parts about Christmas at Merrifield is designing the shop, which showcases our hand-selected decorations for customers to enjoy. This year, we’ve created twenty unique themes throughout the store, each with its own style featuring different types of décor. Whether you visit our Fair Oaks location or one of our other stores, I hope you enjoy the themes our teams have put together this year!

I love all of this year’s themes, but I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites to give you a “sneak peek” of this year’s Christmas Shop. I would encourage you to visit the store to experience the magic of our Christmas Shop in person!

Pageant in the Woods

Our “Pageant in the Woods” theme features adorable animals and woodland themed decorations which appear to have wondered in off a forest path or jumped out of the pages of a story book. At our Fair Oaks store, we’ve designed two trees in this theme.

The “Woodland Tree” features textured bristle animals reminiscent of the creatures you might encounter on a quiet winter walk. These delightful critters look perfectly at home on a Christmas tree or in a woodland themed holiday display gracing a table or shelf.

Felt Tree

Whimsical felt ornaments with a soft, wooly texture adorn our “Felt Tree”. This collection of lovable characters is sure to put a smile on your face, evoking some of our favorite classic children’s stories featuring dapper mice, sly foxes and other characters.

O Tannenbaum

Die-cut wood ornaments and décor with an Old World European style make up our “O Tannenbaum” collection. If you love charming details and the feeling of being in a cozy chalet, this theme is perfect for you!

Some of our featured décor worth checking out from this collection are our Inge-glas German glass, KWO German smokers, and the TRC Ginger Cottage collection (made just down the road in central Virginia!).

Petals

Featuring an elegant, shabby chic spin on a traditional Christmas tree, the “Petals” collection is perfectly designed with plenty of gold, silver, champagne and blush tones. If you love glass, metallic and sparkle, this is the perfect theme for you.  Add some battery-operated pillar and taper candles (for a safer alternative to the traditional candle during the busy holiday season) and enjoy the flickering light as it reflects off these multi-faceted ornaments.

There are 17 more themes to explore at our stores above and beyond the ones featured in this blog! I would particularly recommend looking for the following themes when you visit:

  • Fire Side
  • Cardinal
  • Merry America
  • Victorian
  • Yes Virginia
