It’s only a small percentage of my readers, but they do exist. The people who have no idea that The Home Depot Canada is the BEST place to find beautiful and whimsical, classic or contemporary holiday décor.
Still in the dark? Come join me in the light. Lights. Christmas lights.
Recently, I had an opportunity to attend The Home Depot Canada’s holiday preview, which was chock full of design and décor inspiration for every taste (and budget). Whether you’re looking to be the talk of your neighbourhood with standout lighting, add some sparkle to your classic collection of ornaments or liven your space with some Canadian-grown greenery, The Home Depot Canada is #ChristmasCentral.
So, what are some of the “must haves” this season?
Lighting. The easiest way to make the holidays bright! And this year, you may just give the neighbourhood’s “Griswold” family a run for their money, because The Home Depot Canada’s huge selection of lighting goes well beyond traditional string lights that have long been a holiday staple.
First, think LED. Of course! LED offers brighter, longer lasting options which are perfect for your tree and home’s exterior. You can find LED décor options in everything from sparkling lawn fixtures to candle sets and Christmas trees, all while using up to 80% less energy than standard bulbs.
But the real show-stopper this year is the App Light collection. If you have someone in your household who is even mildly interested in technology, this one’s for you. Available in a variety of shapes and sizes, these faceted lights create dazzling displays that can be easily customized from the convenience of your smartphone.
(I love the Edison set pictured above – using advanced, energy-efficient LED technology, these lights create a dazzling display of light with over 140 light and colour combinations! Plus they’re rated for 20,000 hours of bulb life. Wow!)
Tabletop décor. As we all know, Holiday decor goes well beyond tree ornaments! The Home Depot Canada’s wide selection of tabletop décor can be used to create beautiful centerpieces, decorate mantle pieces or even add a little unexpected sparkle to your favourite reading nook.
(Remember my DIY fireplace mantle showpiece from 2014? I plan on assembling it again this year!)
At the preview, I was duly impressed with the variety of items to suit every decorating style. From more traditional items like nutcrackers and snowflakes; to family-friendly finds like carousels and train sets; to contemporary pieces like gold candle pedestals and LED candles, The Home Depot Canada has something for every space in your home.
While we tend to err on the traditional side for our décor, I do appreciate the modern, whimsical touches! As a mom of boys, I know they’ll love this Truck with Presents and these Whip Nae Nae Dancers. So much fun!
Of course, I think I may need to purchase this contemporary advent calendar for myself – and fill it with little treats! I’m thinking individually wrapped dark chocolate truffles would work nicely. What do you think?
Trees. No surprise here! Your holiday décor isn’t complete without the tree. Whether you prefer a live Christmas tree in your living room or an artificial variety that looks and feels just like the real thing, The Home Depot Canada has the right tree for you!
Confession: we have two artificial Christmas trees from The Home Depot Canada! We love decorating the high quality, authentic-looking indoor trees – both of which were purchased at fabulous prices. This year, The Home Depot Canada is featuring artificial trees with feel-real branches and remote-controlled, pre-installed changing light systems. Gorgeous.
Holiday Greenery. When you’re shopping inside The Home Depot Canada for your décor, don’t forget to venture outside, too! The Home Depot Canada’s extensive selection of Canadian-grown greenery includes customizable planters in all shapes and sizes.
Most exciting of all – this year brings the introduction of true white poinsettias to The Home Depot Canada!
Tapping into the trend of all white everything, these poinsettias will perfectly complement any holiday décor style. They’re available in-store only for a limited time, so visit The Home Depot Canada before they’re gone!
