Get the scoop on how to decorate your home this holiday season with the help of Bachman’s.
One reason some people feel down during the winter months is because of a lack of lush greenery. But does that have to be the case? Karen Bachman Thull, Bachman’s director of marketing and corporate communications, says there’s no reason the winter months should be so sparse. In fact, with Bachman’s help, the holiday season is even more of a reason to enjoy bright green plants—both inside and outside.
Founded in 1885, Bachman’s has remained a family-owned business for five generations. Bachman’s is based in Minneapolis but also has retail locations across the Twin Cities that offer six full-service floral, home, and garden centers where customers can shop annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, and other garden favorites in addition to fresh arrangements, patio furniture, grills, indoor green plants, home decor, seasonal decor, kitchenware, gifts, and more, Thull says.
While many people prepare for the winter by saying farewell to their beloved plants, Bachman’s is welcoming them to the frigid season with open arms.
“Bachman’s Landscape and Garden Maintenance provides winterizing services; however, our extensive list of care sheets, tips, and advice is what helps our customers learn and practice techniques to be successful in the garden,” Thull says.
Around the holidays, Thull says Bachman’s is “truly magical.” With outdoor and indoor offerings, a necessity for any house or yard is twinkling lights, she says. They also offer decor for trees, mantles, and tabletops.
“For the outdoors, sprucetops, festive accents, fresh and fragrant wreaths, and garland help transform your doorstep, patio, or loft balcony. For the indoors, Bachman’s-grown poinsettias are a must-have in vibrant shades of red, pink, and white,” Thull says. “Fresh Christmas trees are a great tradition, but for those small on space or time, our huge selection of permanent trees is amazing!”
Thull says there are many ways people can prepare for the holidays by transitioning their homes to welcome all festive gatherings that are bound to happen. Bachman’s shares tips and tricks to transform your home into a winter wonderland at their seasonal events, including Holiday Ideas House from Nov. 8 through Dec. 16 and Inspiration Night on Nov. 29.
The Holiday Ideas House is a dream for any holiday decor lover. Thull says the historical house is filled room-to-room with inspirational decorations with fresh trees, wreaths, garlands, and seasonal arrangements.
“Schedule a self-guided tour of the Holiday Ideas House and unwrap unique ways to deck your halls for a dazzling season,” Thull says. “Twenty percent of Holiday Ideas House admission proceeds benefit Children’s Theatre Company, whose engagement and learning programs serve more than 85,000 young people and their communities annually.”
For those who can’t make the Holiday Ideas House, Bachman’s Inspiration Night might be just the event for you.
“Bring a little magic to your holiday! We’re welcoming the season in style with an unforgettable evening that will leave you eager to deck the halls. Join us to enjoy wine and light bites while you wander through the garden center, finding festive ideas at inspirational stations,” Thull says.
Throughout the night, Bachman’s will offer expert-led demonstrations including Holiday Floral Design with Diane Enge, Oh, Christmas Tree! Tree Decorating, Holiday Bulb Design, and Spruce Top Container Design. Also, guests can enjoy a seated seminar on “The Art of Holiday Décor—Field to Vase Style” at different times throughout the night.
To help you recreate the yuletide in your own home, you’ll receive a coupon for 10 percent off your regular-priced purchase to use during the event, Thull says.
Whether you’re trying to recreate the magic of childhood holidays or simply can’t take the bland, lifeless winter months anymore, Bachman’s has an array of products, tips, and events to keep you inspired to deck the halls all season long.
