Welcome to the Winter Season!
Winter is the season of rest and renewal. The cold temperatures and dark nights remind us to relax with a good book and mug of hot tea. In home decor, winter can seem a little empty, especially after all the holiday decor is removed. We recommend adding some soft greenery, and a few spring florals to your rooms. A few sprigs of yellow, pink or lilac flowers can brighten the winter days and will serve as a reminder that spring is coming.
At the store, we are looking forward to spring, so we are stocking up with spring decor, spring entertaining accessories, and all the little things that make the transition from winter to spring fun. We've highlighted a delightful assortment of products in this newsletter, along with information about our upcoming spring and flower celebration.
Valentine's Day is Thursday, and we are replete with beautiful gifts anyone would love!
Rest and enjoy the remainder of winter as we look toward the arrival of spring.
