Family Christmas Event at Ardcarne Garden Centre

Soak up the festive atmosphere this Friday and during the weekend with family and friends and help support your local Roscommon Mayo Hospice.

  Now established as an eagerly awaited annual event, the grand opening of the Ardcarne Garden Centre Christmas Shop in Roscommon town and Boyle takes place this Friday, November 6, from 5 pm to 8 pm, with celebrations continuing Saturday and Sunday.

  The Christmas shop is a showcase for all the latest styles and trends in Christmas and promises to be the best yet!

New styles

As always, the range of decorations and lights in the Ardcarne Christmas Shop changes every year, chosen from the best and latest styles from international collections. These are timeless decorations you will treasure for many years and will bring back cherished family memories every Christmas.  

  To highlight these newest fashions, the Ardcarne Christmas Shop is beautifully colour-themed and full of inspiration for decorating your home.

  This year’s themes include Luxury Lodge, combining gold, truffle and copper shades, giving a warm luxurious effect. Classic Twist offers a snazzy take on traditional Christmas shades of red, holly green, violet and gold.

  Other themes include Winter Light capturing the purity of frozen Nature in shades of winter white, jeans blue and wool grey while Silent Romance evokes all that’s soft and chic in shades of pearl, blush pink and hazy lilac, with vintage details.

  Children are sure to enjoy finding their own favorites from the treasure trove of collections in the Christmas Shop and take delight in the sparkly festive surroundings.    

Tree trend

One of the big trends of recent years is investing in an artificial Christmas tree. The quality and life-like appearance of the trees at Ardcarne Garden Centre is testament to their popularity and you can choose from up to 20 different styles in a range of sizes to suit all rooms and budgets.

  All the trees have hinged branches, which means they are easy to assemble and take down and best of all – you will always have your ideal tree every year, just the day you need it!

Latest lights

Christmas lights have also changed significantly in recent years, with the bright and energy efficient LEDs now firmly established as the favourite for decorating trees, garlands and other places around your home and garden.

  Battery lights, for using indoors or outside, are perfect for illuminating small features, containers or plants and are ideal for garlands.

  Look out for a new range of illuminated animals such as polar bears and reindeers, suitable for inside or outdoors to bring a bit of seasonal sparkle. 

Christmas gifts for everyone

There are plenty of Christmas gift ideas for all the family at Ardcarne Garden Centre, whether they are green-fingered or not!

  This year, look out for local interest cards and calendars from Willow Design, exquisite candles and fragrance diffusers from Brooke & Shoals, wind chimes from the famous Woodstock company, a fantastic selection of planted pots for instant colour, elegant Orchids, Bird care and of course the ever-popular Ardcarne Garden Centre Gift Tokens.

A family occasion

The opening of the Ardcarne Christmas Shop has always been a family and community occasion. As part of the celebrations at the opening of the Christmas Shop you can enjoy a glass of mulled wine and tasty nibbles with donations supporting the very worthy Roscommon Mayo Hospice.

  The Ardcarne Garden Café at our Boyle branch, will also be offering a delicious

‘Supper Special’ of Beef Stew or Curry, Dessert and Tea, for only €10 on Friday evening. As usual during the weekend the café will be serving a tempting selection of light lunches, homemade soups and breads and a range of scrumptious pastries and cakes.

  Adding to the relaxing ambience of the event will be free musical entertainment from 5 pm to 7.30 pm on Friday (Boyle and Roscommon town), and 2.00pm – 4.30pm on Saturday (Ardcarne Garden Centre, Boyle).

  So make sure you get along to Ardcarne Garden Centre at Boyle and also Roscommon town, this Friday, November 6, and all through the weekend to soak up the atmosphere and experience the best in all things Christmas.
