Well our Open House was SO much fun! Thank you to all of you lovely ladies, who made this day so worth while. It was so very special to catch up with old friends and make many new ones.
For those of you who were not able to stop by, I will share how this special event went down.
Friday evening a WHITE forest arrived at Roses and Rutabagas.
Saturday morning customers have one last opportunity to shop, because at 1:00 the doors are closed and the decorating commences! We…My very S*W*E*E*T staff and I, sprinkle the shop with Christmas goodness.
Glitter…Glamour…and…Sparkle a plenty is what we hope to achieve. When the clock strikes 2:00 on Monday the doors are opened, and the F*U*N begins!
Now, without further a due, let me share just a bit of the shop,
As we girls decked the halls…
And dressed the tables…
There was much L A U G H T E R
C H I T C H A T
and C O F F E E !
A BIG thank you to my dear friend Koralee,
for sharing her decorating talent,
and adding to our J O Y !
We L O V E to incorporate a theme into each seasons decor…
This year we decided on a P A R I S I A N theme .
Eiffel Towers and Fleur de Lis are a MUST!
But lets not forget the S*P*A*R*K*L*E !
Whether it’s a french country cottage look,
the elegant plumes of a wreath or feather boa,
Or a glittering “Baroque” inspired tree
We hope you will find a little piece of PARIS to take home.
I have a few vintage Christmas decor items that always make me SWOON and SMILE as I unwrap them from the tissue each year. Paper houses and churches definitely fall into this category. So thought I would bring in a collection of different “glass domed houses” and “sugar coated cottages” for YOU to display both on trees and mantles.
Oh, did I mention there were TREATS and HOT apple cider?
Well, these are not as sparkly, but DO taste a bit better.
Thank you Mikaela for the great snappies!
We were fortunate enough to have Whitney from “Deserts by Whitney” make us the most scrumptious French Macaroons...OH MY GOODNESS…Y U M! Usually my dear mother bakes up a storm, but as she is recovering from illness, I was in charge of filling the tray with a morsel of two…Baking is definitely one of my passions, and so this was truly a labor of L O V E.
So as you stroll by…
Don’t JUST peek in the windows…
Come on in and say HI ,
and let us help you start your Christmas list early,
so that you can sit back,
and E N J O Y this season to the fullest.
