Russ Griswold: “Dad, that thing will never fit in our front yard.”

Although Christmas trees first appeared in America in the 1700s, the emergence of the modern Christmas tree actually dates back to 15th and 16th century Europe. Evergreens were used first in church plays at Christmas and were hung with apples to symbolize a Paradise tree. Paradise trees later found their way into homes, where they were adorned with small white wafers, and later, small pastries cut into stars, angels, hearts and flowers. During the next 200 years, this custom slowly spread and eventually found its way to America, where the tradition of decorating with candles and tiny lanterns gave way to the modern phenomenon of electric illumination.
For many, decorating their homes and Christmas trees with is one of the most enjoyable ways to capture the magic and excitement of the holidays, but for some, a time consuming, monumental, even unimaginable task – Cue the PROFESSIONALS! Professional Christmas decorators make it easy. They come to you. They identify what would make your perfect Christmas, what colors you like, what colors you don’t like, whether you like modern and contemporary or good old fashioned traditional Christmas décor. They purchase. They install. After the holidays, they remove and store. No repeat trips to the hardware, no four-letter words, no injuries… Truly, holiday magic!
