I recently visited the new 6328 Richmond Road location of Ellis Home & Garden and was blown away with the variety of home decor, name-brand candles, plants and garden accessories and more.

Many of their plants are grown locally and they have a truly expansive selection of real pumpkins — everything from small to XXL. Of course, there was plenty of Halloween decor for both indoor and outdoor use: I must say, I'm a little partial to Halloween because it's my birthday, so I love decorating my home.

Yes, that is a photo of a Fudge Shop that you see! It's bound to be a hit, with flavors including Rocky Road, Chewy Praline, Vanilla Nut and Peanut Butter Chocolate. "I especially loved the Rocky Road flavor." The outdoor garden area is full of fall foliage, plants and shrubs — it's not too late to plant this fall and enjoy the rewards next spring.

They have their Christmas department open, too. There are tons of decorating inspiring ideas from artificial trees to ornaments, garland and wreaths.

Of course, they're a DIY destination, too. Every Tuesday at 10 a.m., Dylan hosts a live hour-long tutorial on their Facebook page. (Click here to see the video archives and to turn on notifications for future videos!)

If you haven't stopped by the new Ellis Home and Garden location yet, I definitely suggest swinging by. Tell them I sent you!
