Portland Christmas Tree Delivery decks a home’s halls with conical-shaped holiday cheer, freshly cut from sustainable farms in Eola, Oregon. For the past four years, the family operation has harvested these eco-friendly, oxygen-emitting tannenbaums, then prepared them for delivery to Portland homes by lecturing them on the dangers of low-hanging chandeliers. With aromatic pine needles that jut 3/4 to 1 inch from sturdy branches, the douglas fir will securely station garland, tinsel, and ornaments. When properly watered and cared for, trees will keep their festive vigor for up to three weeks, which is exactly how long it takes to teach them to speak French.
French Quarter Linens specializes in spreading beds with a collection of luxurious linens threaded up by some of the finest sheetsmiths around, including Peacock Alley, Legna, and The Purists, who eschew recent trends toward kaleidoscopic cot coverings in favor of simpler designs. A slew of towels, such as the super pile towels—big, full-bodied hair-dryers made of pure Egyptian cotton—await a new home on your bathroom’s bare racks, and a smattering of fragrant soaps, lotions, candles, and creams send scented streams wandering through the house in search of stinks to kill. The prices at French Quarter are as varied as the number of products available; pillowcases and individual sheets start at $45, washcloths and towels range from $14 to $108, and good-smelling goods cost anywhere from $3 to more than $55.
