Holiday Gift Ideas, The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

We're racing around trying to get all the outdoor decorating done before the snow flies, ( which is supposed to be tomorrow). These red twigs are growing in the ditch, they will really stand out once the snow is on the ground.

It's not too soon to place your orders for wreaths and swags. Get them in early and you can start on your own decorating! We will be at The Artisans Northwest show coming up next weekend at the Valhalla Inn.

Busy sanding and sealing some Artisan made metal Garden art. These make a wonderful Gift for the Gardener or Cottager on your list.

Christmas Gatherings Show coming up at The Camellia....! Open Wednesday through Sunday. p-(807)475-3551.

Nature's Decorating Gifts , the Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

One good thing about the colder weather - you can curl up by the Fireplace! Pull out all your Christmas magazines, and start thinking about decorating for the upcoming Holidays! Wouldn't it be nice to be organized and have most of it done ahead of time?

Time to think about Gift Giving - this is a nice personal Teapot - at a price of (are you ready for this?) $13.95.

Burlap is so in this season --make a big bow, then add streamers of waterproof Flora satin in the middle. This ribbon is amazing - we sell it at Camellia's - it will float in a pond and hold its shape ( and it's cheap!)

Fill your summer planters with Winter greens - here we used balsam, 2 types of pine, and later added magnolia leaves. The smell will rejuvenate you. Notice that most of the items you need to decorate with can be easily found in Nature. Just look around you and start gathering before the snow flies.

We're busy getting our Christmas products and Holiday Goods set up for CHRISTMAS GATHERINGS 2011. Starts November 11th ...grab a friend and head out to get inspired for the coming Holiday season!

Bay Leaf wreaths , Camellia's, Thunder Bay, On

Christmas is coming and I'm trying to get into the spirit of things by making fresh Bay Leaf wreaths! These wreaths take a long time to make by hand, and they also take a lot of Bay leaves.

The smell is wonderful.... spicy and sweet at the same time. This wreath would be great in a kitchen or dining room.

Come visit Camellia's ...OPEN Wednesday through Sunday.
