I would venture to say that if you need to get into the holiday spirit you need go no further than Tulipia located at 7617 W. Lake, in River Forest. In fact "Splendor" is the word that comes to mind as you walk in.
With glittery ornaments and fantastically decorated displays, you can find just about anything here to please neighbors and friends and family alike. Tulipia Floral Design owners Ashley Kelly and Peter Kingston certainly specialize in floral, but at this time of year they makeover every inch of their square footage to best represent holiday entertainment.
Tulipia can even come out to do your holiday indoor decorating. It's just the kind of takeover we need at our house. And I can imagine that any holiday party would be a hit if you leaned just a little on Ashley and Peter. They do outdoor planters as well, so don't hesitate to call.
Finding a store like Tulipia which has been open for seven years, is just the reason I love my new shopping status here at OakPark.com. I'm adding the Holiday Open House to my family to do this weekend. We typically get new ornaments every year to grace our tree, and I think my seven year old would just love to see how fantastic a tree can look. (We don't come even close at our house to those gorgeous masterpieces at Tulipia). And my three year old son, well he's gonna love the sparkle dino.
