Some Christmas Eye Candy

I had planned to write a different post today, but apparently it is 9:20 pm already, and I am more than ready for bed.  So today will have to be a quick glimpse of the trip Gemma and I made to Merrifield Garden Center to partake in our annual "oooohhhhinnnnnggggg" and "aaaaahhhhhiiiiiinnnnnngggg" of the amazing Christmas displays.

This was the first display and I loved pretty much everything about it.

Who knew white trees could be so beautiful?

And more white!  But who can resist a white unicorn?

Vintage type ornaments and check out the flowers and ribbons at the top of the tree!

These kinds of cute table displays were all over the store.

There are fish swimming in this pond!

It's a little hard to see, but the cloth on the table is a kind of furry white with gold streaks.  It was incredibly gorgeous and it took all my willpower not to buy it.  It would just get covered in cat and dog hair at my house, but it was so lovely to look at!  Combined with the faux snow-covered tree, this whole display was breathtaking!

I loved the woodland theme of this tree!

Vintage lighting!

So colorful!
These pictures are just a sampling of what we looked at.  I can't even imagine all the work that goes into creating so many different displays with different themes (there was even one for pets and another one for mermaids and sea life, plus we saw a real life ancient typewriter that fascinated Gemma, who is learning to type using a computer keyboard)  Gemma and I managed to restrain ourselves and only choose a few ornaments to buy, but it was such fun to soak in the wonderful atmosphere.


  1. I hope they serve eggnog and mulled wine for their customers!

    1. Ha, ha! They might! There is a little café, but I'm so focused on the Christmas stuff that I've never really paid much attention to it. I'll have to check it out next time we go!
