Decorating for Christmas is good for the soul this year. And there are some great local businesses you can support to deck your halls!
Park City Nursery
Park City Nursery always turns into the cutest Christmas Tree spot. It’s the perfect place to get in the holiday spirit and pick out the perfect tree. But if you still want to support this amazing local business but aren’t comfortable shopping, you can schedule curbside pick up or even delivery! They also have wreaths and poinsettias and tons of other flowers, plants and cute gifts!
You’ll see the creative Christmas creations of Ranui Gardens all over Park City this year! A lot of local business are decking thir halls with their creative wreaths and you should grab one for your house too! Shop online and pick up! Browse the available wreaths here.
Cutting Down A Tree
Cutting your own tree is the best forced-family-fun out there — Griswald style! And I have the perfect plan to make it a little sweeter: go to Mirror Lake Gas Station to get their award-winning donuts to fuel up and then head out Christmas tree hunting! Find out how to get a tree permit here, it's easy! It's one of my family's favorite Christmas traditions.
