Holiday cheer? For many of us, December kicks off a marathon of holiday stress.
Just look at the family calendar. First week: the Christmas bazaar. (Crafts galore! Who doesn't want another crocheted toilet-roll cover for the bathroom?) The company holiday party. (Excellent source of hilarious stories about co-workers for months.) The neighborhood holiday party. (Husband: "Are those real?" Wife, eyes rolling: "Are you kidding?")
Then, there's the Christmas play, followed a week later by the school's holiday concert. (CIA, take note. No torture is as grueling as listening to a middle-school band or orchestra grinding out a Christmas carol that sounds vaguely like "Proud Mary.")
Amidst all this forced jollity, we still have to find time to buy and wrap gifts. Overwhelmed? FCG can help.
For the man in your life, an Ekornes recliner and matching ottoman in black leather – just in time for some serious television viewing in January. That's in our showroom in Hanover. For someone who loves fine craftsmanship and classic handmade furniture, FCG has a large selection of pieces by Eldred Wheeler.
Something fun for the free-spirited decorator? We've got purple velvet salon chairs in Hanover, perfect for a louche pre-theatre cocktail party. And, just in time for the holidays, all our stores have an abundant selection of new framed prints, accessories and lamps – gifts so striking that you won't even want to wrap them. Just affix a bow and you're done.
So don't fret. Make FCG your first stop this weekend. Then, back to the to-do list: make rum cake. Eat rum cake. Make more rum cake.
