16 CHRISTMAS IN THE VALLEY 2018 NOVEMBER 28-DECEMBER 4, 2018 | THE VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER WOONSOCKET – As Thanksgiving sea- son turns into Christmas on the last week of November, Donna Becker, owner of Fontana's Flowers and Greenhouses in Woonsocket, pre- pares for her busiest time of year. The winter months are always busier than summer, she said, when the florist world slows down as people take a break from their holi- day festivities. And while florists face competi- tion in recent years from big-box stores that sell Christmas favorites by the hundreds, the store is still bustling with activity as people come in to decorate their homes and send gifts to family and friends. "Poinsettias are the number one thing that goes out," she said. In addition to the Christmas staple, Becker said boxwood trees, amaryllis and Christmas cactus remain popular options for decorating Local flower shops preparing for a busy holiday season By LAUREN CLEM Valley Breeze Staff Writer lauren@valleybreeze.com Continues on next page WE ARE NOW OPEN YEAR ROUND!
