An artificial tree covered in some tinsel does not a festive house make. Give your home the love it deserves by visiting Mariani Landscape (300 Rockland Road, Lake Bluff; 847-234-2172) this weekend. They just opened up their annual holiday market and it has everything you could need to get your home in the spirit (handmade wreaths, topiary-style center pieces, swags, holiday arrangements, and more). They also have supplies if you’re more the DIY type: garland, boughs, wreath frames, pinecones, winterberries, and beautiful dogwood branches. Feeling the opposite of DIY? Mariani designers can come to your home and set up your décor for you, say by framing your entrance in garland and lights, placing pots of red berries and evergreen in front of your door, or stringing lights on your favorite tree in your yard. Speaking of trees, if you don’t have one yet, they have them up to 15 feet tall!
