A crowd of people checks out the many beautiful decorations and home decor at the Christmas open house held Friday and Saturday at IC Greenhouses in Huron-Kinloss Township

It was a busy place at IC Greenhouses in Huron-Kinloss Township, as people flocked to the Christmas open house to check out the beautiful ornaments showcased on about a dozen decorated Christmas trees.

Owner/operator Ida Piel and her staff have created a magical Winter Wonderland, complete with everything you need to make your home festive for the holiday, including Christmas tree ornaments, ribbon and garland, nativity scenes, arrangements and home decor.

Patrons of the open house were eligible to win a draw prize of a Christmas urn insert.

IC Greenhouses also has pre-made and custom-made Christmas containers. Bring in your containers and the staff will fill them for you. Or ask for a made-to-order wreath.

Fresh boughs, garland, poinsettias and real Christmas trees will be arriving within the week.

IC Greenhouses, located on the 6th Concession of Huron-Kinloss, just east of Highway 21, is open Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., until Dec. 24. Closed Sundays.
