It's That Time of the Year - YAY!

It is going to be a very Gnomey Christmas this year! These adorable folks are everywhere and into everything, and they would love to have lots of fun with friendly visitors and fans. Santa has had a lot of help from these folks this year, and he really appreciates it!

Our entire store is completely decked out for the holiday season! Plus, Santa will be spending the three weekends immediately after Thanksgiving at the Oakland Delaware Store, and you know how he loves to have the children visit and give him their wish list. That really helps him search for the special gift for each and every one.

In the Loft of our Gift Barn there is a really fantastic selection of fun books, glasses, coasters, Brumates, and many home bar decorative accessories. Also, in the Loft we have wonderful clothing pieces including ponchos, gloves, scarves, etc. For that special holiday event take a look at our delightful selection of tops and jackets just waiting to make your party entrance grand!

Pillows! Pillows! Pillows! We have such an extensive collection of Holiday and Seasonal pillows! They are everywhere in the Gift Barn, and you will find it a challenge to decide on just one - or two - or more! So very much fun and a really quick way to decorate for the season with no stress. There are even many indoor/outdoor pillows that will be perfect for that deck or porch area. Can anyone have too many pillows? Not me!!

Have you seen the Holiballs yet? Wow! These are the larger than life indoor/outdoor inflatable ornaments that can be seen on Instagram, Pinterest, and elsewhere on social media platforms. They are deflateable, reusable, and storage friendly. We have seven colors in two sizes of these clever ornaments. The 'Shark Tank' group got behind this company, and it has since become a colorful success.

Now is also the time to consider planting any trees, shrubs, and especially spring blooming bulbs. We have a beautiful palette selection of tulips, narcissus, allium, hyacinths and other bulbs. To make planting bulbs easier try using a bulb planter. How about trying to discourage those pesky squirrels and chipmunks from digging up those precious but tasty bulbs? Try digging a space deep enough for the bulbs. Place bulbs, cover with a layer of soil, then place an appropriately sized section of chicken wire (1" openings) over the soil and now completely cover with the rest of the soil. Add mulch if desired.

For your winter growing enjoyment there are paperwhites along with many varieties of the bulk amaryllis bulbs available. Consider giving gift boxed sets of these bulbs to friends and neighbors. It is a gift that gives long lasting winter enjoyment. And one size fits all!

The Delaware Oakland elves and gnomes (Yes, we do have our own!) are really enjoying all of the special food gifts we have in stock. Yummy snowman hot chocolate, Stonewall Kitchen products, soup and dip mixes, and Oliver Pluff & Co. tea.

As always we do have the Christmas Design Center set for you to choose from many ribbons, picks, cones, and berries so that you can design your own Christmas decorations. Or you can have one of our designers assist and assemble your design for you. So much fun!

So we look forward to each of you visiting our Gorgeous Christmas domain. And thoroughly enjoying picking out just the right gift for yourself or someone special. We do have something for everyone - from kids to grown-ups. Let's face it, we are all kids at heart - especially at Christmas!

Time to find some eggnog and cookies and look forward to my visit from Santa, Elves, and of course the Gnomes!


CUSTOM CONTAINER PLANTINGSCan’t seem to find exactly what you’re looking for? Maybe a color scheme isn’t what you were envisioning, or the premade planters are never the right scale for your area. Whatever the case may be, Oakland Nursery is happy to customize seasonal containers for you! Let us create a custom combination planter for your home, based upon YOUR specifications!

You can pick from our wide selection of pottery or bring in your own container. You can pick out exactly what you want or just give us some guidelines and let us do our magic.

Colorful containers can start as early as February and go as late as November, and there are many options for holiday greens arrangements to fill even the coldest months!

Prices are dependent upon the plant selection and container size. Additives such as Soil Moist and slow release fertilizers are also available options. We will do our best to understand your needs and make informed, educated decisions about what plants will work best for your location and lifestyle.

Call us or stop in anytime, we are here to help!
