Greenhouse of Themes

There are just so many ways to decorate for the holidays and we don’t like to limit ourselves to just one or two looks, especially when there are so many beautiful choices to pick from! At our Annual McDonald Garden Center Christmas Shoppe, we like to provide inspirational new ideas as well as collaborations that could go with your already established holiday decor.

This year we have a troop of trusted themes to get you in the holiday spirit early with our Christmas in the Greenhouse. From glitter and gold to tried and true reds and greens, we have multiple themes that will have your guests saying “wow!” when visiting for the holidays this year. If you can’t make it to our stores immediately, then take a look at our newest holiday lookbook for the first glance at all the wonderful themes discussed here!
