All Decked Out for the HolidaysBy Teresa McPherson

And just like that, Thanksgiving is over and the holiday season has taken over.

According to the National Retail Federation, nearly 190 million consumers shopped between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday, an increase of 14% from the same period a year ago. On average, those shoppers spent $361.90, up 16% from last year.

How is your holiday season going so far? Did you see an increase in traffic? Send me a note.

I recently had a chance to take a garden center tour of my own, visiting garden centers in western Pennsylvania. As usual, I took loads of photos – some of which I’ve shared on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Head on over there to see some of what I snapped. And keep an eye on the Inspiration Book, where I’ll be sharing lots more ideas.
