Christmas at Mattick's Farm - Pick up your copy of the Boulevard Magazine.

The fun of the holidays is right around the corner: family gatherings to plan, delicious meals to prepare, gifts to find and a house/condo or apartment to decorate — the list goes on.

With entertaining season approaching at warp speed, it’s time to get your home spruced up. Your time is precious around the holiday season, so to help make the most of your time, try these easy solutions to prepare for the holidays while keeping your sanity.
Festive lights: A simple way to decorate for the holidays year after year is with an artificial tree. For a formal dinner event, glowing white light sets a perfect ambiance. Switch to the multi-color option to delight the kids.
A touch of cheer: Use holiday decorations in unexpected ways to add festive cheer in every room of your home with minimal effort. Try hanging ornaments to decorate live plants, light fixtures, doorway overhangs, stairwells, mirrors and even the mantel.
Among the pines: Potted evergreen plants decorated with lights bring plenty of festive feelings into a room. The best news is that when spring arrives, you can plant them outside in your backyard, or donate them to a community project that needs evergreen trees. Using live plants infuses the room with light and good, clean oxygen, and it's the subtle touches your guests will appreciate and remember.
With these timely tips, you — and your home — will be ready for a holiday season of celebrations.
