Owner Steve Baggett shows off one of the highly decorated vignettes in Owasso’s Countryside Flowers and Gifts.
Countryside Flowers and Gifts in Owasso can help you make your home beautiful for the holidays, and ease the stress of holiday shopping and entertaining. Conveniently located in the Reasor’s shopping center at 86th Street North and Highway 169, owner Steve Baggett says the shop is filled to the brim with decorating ideas, gifts for everyone on your list, and items to make holiday entertaining a breeze.
Just peeking in the windows at Countryside puts you in the Christmas spirit, and from the moment you step inside you will find dozens of decorated trees and garlands, each with a different theme. “We like to provide that motivation for our customers to try something new with their decorations, or help them spruce up their traditional trimmings,” said Baggett.
Popular themes this year include the Frost collection, in colors of pewter, silver and sage. The Time for Christmas line features a variety of pocket watches and clocks, and items from The Greatest Gift showcase angels and nativities in rich gold, copper and green. Whether you are completely changing your decorating style, adding to your existing ornaments or decorating a special themed tree in addition to the family tree, Countryside has everything you need. Countryside carries trees decorated for teens, cowboys, parents and new babies, and even bird lovers. “You can pick up an ornament or two or walk out with the whole tree, decorations and all.”
Countryside can also enhance your home’s décor with fresh or faux floral arrangements, hand designed for the holiday season. Nothing says Christmas better than fresh pine, spruce and cedar fashioned into beautiful arrangements for your dining table, entry hall or mantle. Add the fragrance of cranberry, sugar cookie or apple cider candles and you have the perfect atmosphere for guests, or a quiet evening at home wrapping gifts.
Speaking of gifts, Countryside offers gift baskets that are beautifully presented and perfect for so many on your list. Incorporating gourmet food items, holiday accessories, candles, lotions, stationery items and much more, these baskets combine a variety of goodies that make dazzling gifts. Delivery is even available for the baskets to the entire metropolitan Tulsa area and beyond.
There’s nothing quite like having a beautiful gift delivered right to your door, and with many families spread around the country or even further, sending flowers or a plant can be a thoughtful way to bridge the distance. Baggett suggests a poinsettia, cyclamen, or azalea plant, or an arrangement of Christmas greens with candles and glittering trim. Countryside provides local delivery and worldwide delivery through Teleflora and FTD.
Being the gracious and prepared hostess is easy with Countryside’s large assortment of mixes for dips, cheese balls and hot cider. Specialty barks, nuts, soft peppermint sticks and numerous other mouthwatering treats will bring back childhood memories as new ones are being made. Whether it is for last-minute guests, or last-minute gifts, keeping a supply of these goodies on hand will let you sail through the holidays in style. There is even a popular fudge mix that makes a pound of the creamy confection in just 90 seconds in your microwave.
Countryside is open extended hours through the Christmas season for your shopping convenience, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visit Countryside today and let Steve Baggett and his friendly staff help you make this holiday season the best one yet.
