In past weeks we’ve told you how to care for two more-or-less traditional holiday plants, the Christmas tree and Christmas cactus. But how do you celebrate if you’re starting from scratch, tradition-wise, in a small space? Or maybe your flight was canceled at the last minute, and you now find yourself faced with the prospect of celebrating in a mostly undecorated home?
The answer may be a Norfolk Island pine. Hailing from the windswept island of Norfolk in the South Pacific, the tree has been embraced by many as a small-space alternative to towering firs and prickly cacti. Like the one you see here, you’ll find Norfolk Island pines already decorated for Christmas in Home Depot stores.Which by no means should discourage you from adding decorations that give it your own personal flair.
As an outdoor plant, the Norfolk Island pine needs sunnier climes, so don’t plan on replanting it unless you live in USDA Zone 9 or above. Fortunately, the pine is a slow-grower, and serves well as a potted shrub. Just make sure to water it several times a week and put it where it will receive plenty of sun. If you have a patio or porch, you might move the tree’s container outdoors once the nighttime temperature climbs into the 60s or higher.
Does your Christmas tradition involve plants beyond the classic trees and garlands? Leave us a comment and tell us all about it.

In our 2012 edition of the Holiday Style Guide, we asked our readers to submit photos showing off their holiday decorations for our Best Holiday on Display contest. To enter for a chance to win a $1,000 Home Depot Gift Card, readers tagged their Instagram photos using the hashtag #HomeDepotStyleGuide2012. We received tons of fantastic entries that were full of festive cheer. Here are a few of the favorites!

Maybe it’s because of all the homes decorated in hundreds of sparkling Christmas lights, with inflatable snowmen in the yard and festive wreaths hanging on the front door. Or, it could just be the sight of beautiful Christmas trees draped in ornaments displayed in windows for everyone to enjoy. Whatever it is, it’s got us filled the with holiday spirit – and we hope you are, too.
Just to show you how much we’re feelin’ the Christmas time buzz around here, the crazy kids at homedepot.com got together with some of our store associates to make this hilarious little holiday video. In it you’ll see a lot of new and innovative holiday decorations, including the Maestro Mouse, our Quick Set artificial Christmas trees and the amazing Christmas collections from Martha Stewart Living.
Our Christmas Time at Home Depot video also features the hippest elf ever. Oh, and Santa — he’s a Home Depot associate. Really.
We feel it only fair to warn you, watching this Christmas video may cause spontaneous smiles.
In our Holiday Style Challenge series, some of our favorite bloggers brought you new and creative ideas for decorating your home for the holidays. In this series, several of our bloggers added fresh flair to their Christmas tree by adding customized touches, and we loved the way they weren’t afraid to add a little sparkle, paint, and yes, even succulents to their Christmas traditions.
It’s always fun to add a few unusual Christmas ornaments to your tree every year, whether they’re sentimental, quirky or traditional. They can express your personality, honor your favorite sports team, or just create a smile. Here are a few of the more quirky or distinctive Christmas ornaments from the virtual aisles of The Home Depot.
Partial to the traditional red and green color palette? These glittered large shatterproof ornaments in red and green are a no-brainer if you’re looking to add to your ornament collection.
Or perhaps you gravitate toward Christmas decorations in an untraditional color combination? These multi-colored beaded, striped ornaments will satisfy your rainbow fix!
The aisles of The Home Depot are busy this time of year with folks shopping for Christmas trees, looking for gifts for the beloved DIY-er in their life, or picking up a gingerbread kit (a Black Friday special!). Check out these photos people have posted publicly to Instagram while doing some Christmas shopping at The Home Depot, or preparing for Christmas shoppers.

In our Holiday Style Challenge series, some of our favorite bloggers brought you new and creative ideas for decorating your home for the holidays. In this series, several of our bloggers used LED candles as part of their dining room table settings, and we loved how each of these stylish ladies added their own twist to these innovative holiday helpers.
In the photo above, Katie of the blog Modern Eve blended Home Accents Pillar LED flameless candles (which come with a timer and remote control!) with real votive candles to create maximum impact in her delightful holiday dining room. By blending real and flameless candles, you can create a dramatic candlelight table setting, plus by incorporating real votive candles into your table setting, your guests won’t even suspect the flameless LED candles aren’t real, too!
The holiday season is the time to bring some festive cheer into your home. When it comes to Christmas decorating, we love incorporating plenty of warm candlelight (either real or LED!), glittery candles, frosty branches, and metallics galore!

If you don’t have one already, a sparkling star tree topper is a must-have. We love the way this silver sunburst capiz tree topper features an icy capiz shell, a bit of silver glitter, and is lit from the inside out!
Gift wrapping is one of those things that some people absolutely love and some people couldn’t care less about. I personally look forward to wrapping, and love to create a cohesive “look” for all of the presents under the tree. I love coming up with creative gift wrapping by using one particular type of wrapping and ribbon. It’s also possible to create a unified feel by repeating colors throughout each gift.
In the Christmas gift wrap collection I created above, I used only a few materials for each gift — builder’s paper, silver contact paper, jute twine and mason twine — but I accented many of these gifts with some extras.
