A cure the Bah-Humbugs! Mel's Christmas Room

Update: After 40 years, Mel's is closing September 2013.

Mel's Nursery & Home 
has a delightful holiday tradition of going all-out for Christmas.

Its the most wonderful time of the year....at Mel's.

May your days be merry and bright and may halls be decked by Mel's.

Fa la la la la.

If you have a case of the bah- humbugs, one visit to the legendary Christmas Room will have you spirit in no time. 

Mel's Nursery & Home is a must-stop for me when in North Spokane. Not only is Mel's a  full-service nursery and florist, they have tasteful home furnishings and decor items which will have you wanting to adopt their casual yet elegant style.

What's new at Mel's in the ever expanding wine department with an obvious commitment to local wineries.
In addition to finding a wonderful selection of Washington Wines you'll discover unique wine accessories and delightful gourmet foods which includes select cheeses, such as Cougar Gold, addicting carmel covered pretzels and interesting flavored crackers.
This may be a perfect place to fill up your picnic basket.

In 1970 Mel's was a small fruit stand selling seasonal plants and shrubs. Today it's a garden center but so much more. Great furnishings, unique home décor, espresso and full service florist make Mel's a destination in style. If you have a case of the bah- humbugs, one visit to the legendary Christmas Room will have you spirit in no time.

Mel's is truly where home and garden come together and a place where you can always find something wonderful. It's not a bargain hunt, but if money wasn't an issue I'd buy even furnish my imaginary lake cabin there. But since money does come into play, it is my philosophy is buy a few good pieces at Mel's and fake the rest.
