Trim Your Tree at Rolling Greens

Print Now that Thanksgiving weekend is over, the Christmas season has officially begun and it is time to trim your tree! Whether you're going with real or faux, evergreen or frosty white, white lights or brightly colored; it's time to take those boxes out of the attic and get decorating!

Whether you're starting from scratch or have boxes full of pieces you've lovingly curated over the years, we are fully stocked with the perfect ornaments to trim your tree. If you have a vision but aren't sure where to start, come on in with a color palette in mind or even a few of your own pieces in hand, and we'll help you tell a story with your tree!

When it comes to decorating your tree, there are many ways you can go about it. Some choose a perfectly coifed and color-coordinated display, with every ornament and light organized and in its place. Others choose a scattered, colorful and vibrant look, with a little bit of everything. Perhaps you're somewhere in the middle, or perhaps you haven't decided yet. We have several display trees in store that may help you decide! From sparkly & ornate to playful & funky, we have a tree for every personality!

Los Angeles Holiday Premiere

Messhall Ghost Media-3874 This weekend we were thrilled to kick off the holiday season with our annual Holiday Premiere event at our LA location! Is there any better way to start the season than a night of holiday shopping, cocktails, delicious treats, and music?

Now that our store has been transformed into a winter wonderland, we couldn't wait to share it with you! With the help of our amazing vendors and friends, we enjoyed a wonderful evening of holiday cheer.

The beautiful Kara Elise mixed up some gorgeous cocktails with ingredients by Health-Ade Kombucha, Kimo Sabe Mezcal, and Farmbox. Our favorite was the "Autumn Donkey," a mix of Pink Lady Apple kombucha, rosemary, cinnamon, and mezcal - a combination that created a perfectly "adult" apple cider for a chilly Fall evening.

We were also lucky to have our friend Anne Sage, author of Sage Living: Decorate for the Life You Want, join us to sign copies of her beautiful book. If you haven't picked up a copy for yourself yet, it just might make for the perfect early Christmas present to yours truly!

Of course, the best part of an event are the treats! With delicious food from our neighbors Stir Market and decadent desserts from Sweet & Divine by Emmaline, it was hard to choose a favorite. If you are looking for catering for a holiday party, we highly recommend these two!
