A Tivoli Florist Christmas

As you walk down Richmond Road, you will pass Tivoli’s Florists. And you won’t be able to miss it.

Tivoli has updated its window displays to reflect the coming of Christmas, and the result is breathtaking.

In Westboro for 12 years, and Ottawa for 8, Michael Corbeil’s Tivoli Florist has provided residents with unique flower arrangements for any occasion.

“Tivoli came from a commerce degree from Carleton University, and a lifelong interest in gardening,” he says.

Christmas season starts immediately after Halloween season ends, on November 1.

“We could start earlier, people ask for pieces earlier. But the longer we store Christmas stuff, the longer we have to look at it!” jokes Corbeil.

Christmas season comes in stages. It starts with tree decorations, which is what Tivoli advertises and sells for the first half of November.

The second phase is outdoor decorations.

Finally, in December, comes the floral arrangements.

But the store is still selling regular arrangements, which are wanted year-round.
