Take a trip to IC Greenhouses in Huron-Kinloss Township, and you'll quickly get in the mood to decorate your home for Christmas.

The annual Christmas open house began Friday 
(Nov. 4), with customers crowding the doors before they opened at 10 a.m. The event continues Saturday
(Nov. 5) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Owner/operator Ida Piel and her staff have created a magnificent Christmas wonderland for people to tour, featuring decorated Christmas trees, a vast assortment of ornaments, wreaths, arrangements, planters, and much more, to decorate your home inside and out for the holidays.

It is definitely worth the drive to IC Greenhouses, located two miles east of Highway 21, on the 6th Concession of Huron-Kinloss.

Enjoy delicious refreshments, put your name in for draws and door prizes, and receive a 10-per-cent discount on all purchases during the open house.

Live-cut Christmas trees are arriving earlier this year - available sometime later this month.

IC Greenhouses will be decorating the home of Cherie and Sean Johnson in Ripley for the annual Ripley Christmas Tour of Homes, Sunday, Nov. 13, 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. Tickets are $15 each, available at IC Greenhouses, 519-395-3610.
