After closing for three days to decorate from top to bottom, Creekside Country Home Decor re-opens for Christmas at Creekside, Wednesday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We bring in trees, garlands, wreaths – it’s a complete change,” says owner Gail Roscoe. “A lot of people find it a magical transformation. Christmas at Creekside is something they have to experience every year.”

Here’s why you need to be there:

Whether you’re celebrating Christmas in your first home or want to complement cherished holiday traditions, immersing yourself in the Creekside displays will offer a home-full of ideas. Transformed for the season with lights, lanterns, greenery and decorations, you’re sure to find the perfect theme or piece to bring the holidays to your home. In the market for a new tree?

  4. Enjoy a night out with friends. Welcoming guests until 8 p.m., Creekside’s open house is a destination event for many friends, who come together for a night out, Gail says. “It’s like a party. Everyone is excited and happy, friends run into each other who haven’t seen each other in a while, it’s great fun.”
