Snapshots: The First Holiday Open House

November 18, 2012

20121118-092513.jpg Twas such a fun, fun day yesterday! To those of you who were able to stop in, thank you. It was a fab kick-off to the Holiday season. A case of bubbly, 6 large bottles of tangerine juice, 200 Trophy mini cupcakes, and a case of sparking cider later–a festive day it certainly was. I snapped a few photos before we opened the shop at 10. I always love the calm & stillness of the space before a full day of activity begins.

Of course, me up on a 12 foot ladder installing said snowflakes is not such a pretty sight. Ahhhh, what we do for beauty.
