Do you like to get your tree up right after Thanksgiving? American Plant has tips to turn your home into a winter wonderland.

1. Decide where you'll put your tree before you buy it. This will help you pick out a tree with the perfect shape, and narrow down your selection. If you know your tree is going to stand in a corner of your living room, you can pick one out that has a flatter side so it fits better.

2. Wreaths are where it's at. Whether it's a table top arrangement or hanging on your door, wreaths add freshness and holiday cheer throughout your home. You can buy one pre-made, or customize it to your liking with different bows and beads, and even different scented branches.

3. Create a festive table. From coloring placemats for the kids to cheery cocktail glasses, you can decorate your dining room table with holiday accessories to complete the meal, and keep everyone entertained.

4. Give the gift that keeps on giving. If you're not hosing the holiday gathering, you may be wondering what makes for a good hostess gift. Everyone loves flowers, and there's a wide variety of indoor plants. Poinsettias are the classic option, and can withstand a toasty home.

Happy Holidays!
