Best Place to Buy Holiday Decor

Nothing gets you in the holiday mood quite like deckin’ out your house with all things Christmas! If a more outdoorsy theme is your niche, check out Down to Earth Garden Center (6025 Arndt Lane, Eau Claire), where they are currently celebrating their 26th year in business. Lumber and home improvement supplies aren’t the only things on display at both Eau Claire locations of Menards (3210 N. Clairemont Ave. and 3619 S. Hastings Way). Large lawn decorations and all your Christmas tree trimming needs can be found at both stores. If something a little more homemade is more your decor style, stop down to The Glass Orchard (130 Deerfield Road, Eau Claire) and take a class in blowing your own glass ornament or purchase some at their retail store! –Sheng Yang
