Balsam Hill & Macy’s: Celebrating a Decade of Holiday Traditions

The past decade has been a meaningful journey for us at Balsam Hill and this year is extra special as we celebrate our 10th anniversary. We have a lot of exciting things lined up and one of them will be our grandest celebration to date. As part of the festivities, Balsam Hill is joining the most iconic event in New York City—Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Macy’s only selects a few new floats to debut in the parade and we’re proud to be counted among them this year. Balsam Hill’s “Deck the Halls” float is a winter wonderland designed to delight the 3.5 million spectators who flock to the event. This year also marks the parade’s 90th anniversary, making our partnership even more memorable.

Fall in love with Balsam Hill

Decorating for autumn is in full swing over at my house, and one of my favorite places to add a sprinkle of seasonal charm is the front porch.

Your front door is the first thing that guests see when coming over for a cup of coffee or harvest party, so it is a spot you definitely don’t want to overlook in seasonal decorating. Whether you go big and bold with lots of pumpkins or keep it more simple and elegant, a wreath, garland, and other touches will make it warm and welcoming. Read This Entry

Decorating with potted trees

Sometimes a little tree is exactly what you need to bring charm to a space. And a little tree in a pot or bucket? Well, that is even better.

Today I am talking about potted trees and sharing a few ideas on where you can use them. They are a natural touch outdoors to dress up your patio areas. They are perfect without lights on for adding color with their warm greenery, and with those twinkly lights all aglow, they can bring the perfect amount of magic to an otherwise ordinary space.

Balsam Hill Lights Up The Night

As I mentioned over at my blog this morning, entertaining outdoors long into the wee hours of the morning is a favorite thing for me to do during summer.

Evenings spent out under stars and moonlight just feel so magical to me. And with the sounds of the crickets playing background music, the warm bounce of the moonlight off the water in the fountain, and the flickering candles lighting the path to warm evening memory making – who can resist throwing a get-together filled with all that ambiance?
