Hello sweet ladies.....how are you all? Are you all getting ready for the CHRISTmas season? We seem to be more busy than we could ever imagine. The time we get to spend at the farm has been wonderful. I am off for two days and I will be getting the farm ready for family and putting up our tree. Can't wait! We have been working hard at the coffeehouse each day! The other night we hosted one of our families who wanted to have their CHRISTmas Party for all their workers at Broadway Market. It was a precious time. Thought I would show you pic's of what we did.........we started with..........
Winterberries........I had never heard of them and one of our Floral companies we buy from shared with us some ideas for Christmas decorating. They are beautiful.....when we open the box they are wrapped in brown craft paper.......tied with twine in a bow. Now that might sound like nothing......but to me I just love love love simple and it brightens my day when I open the box! The two companies we work with are very interested in making our business a success. They have been so helpful!
My sweet man was helpful getting lots of our dishes from our farm into the shop. We washed and shined every piece.
I made up some jars like I did for Taylor's wedding. Burlap, a strip of ribbon and a handmade ribbon rose....all out of red gingham.....my favorite kind of ribbon!
Red lanterns (we sell these at the Market), pinecones, evergreens, winterberries decorated down the center of each of the tables.
and silverware with little tags tied with scripture "And thou shalt call His name Jesus for He shall save His people from their sins. Matt. 1:27"........my favorite verse in the world.
After the dinner everyone came to the back to the coffee area and we served, lattes, coffee, smoothies and Homemade Carmel Apple Cheesecake......num......it was a sweet night and when we got home we fell into bed only to wake up to another day at the coffeehouse!!!!!!! So today is church and home for two days.......thanking my Jesus for a little break!!
Love you ladies! Tell me of your CHRISTmas ideas or plans.....would love love to hear!
Hugs and God bless!
