Christmas in October???

It has been a longgggg weekend at Home and Garden! Today is the official open house for the holiday season and everyone (about 20) worked to turn the store into a wonderland. It seems early, until you realize that there are only 6 weeks till Thanksgiving and most people decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving. It is a little difficult to give each holiday it's due - right now we have Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas - all filling every space in 3500 sq feet. Needless to say ...things get a little messy:

Selma - the kitchen is her area!

Jeanne - who is our master decorator!


                                                         Mason - keeping it all together


                                                       Cindy who tries to keep us straight (to no avail)            


                                                         Kerri (left) our nursing student


                                                         
                                                        Jessica - our Wofford connection



BUT - after many, many hours, they all come together to be beautiful!



Don't think that decorating is all we did this weekend! We had a customer who was giving a party for her friend that loves Halloween - so Kristen did her magic:






But.....that's not all we did this weekend.....



We also hand sifted, handpacked and boxed almost 500 Sugah Cakes!! We just returned from Gay, Georgia for the Cotton Pickin' Fair and we are restocking for our next show - Charlottesville, Virginia's Martha's Market. Love Charlottesvile. Would love to see y'all there!
