The Christmas season is upon us and will soon be here full blast! But, before I begin talking Christmas, I want to ask and also send prayers out to all my friends and customers that have been in the path of Hurricane Michael. This storm has taken homes and businesses and caused much devastation for so many. From Bayside Florist in Port St Joe to Around the Corner in Chattahoochee and to all the towns and business’s in between, please say prayers for them. The towns and businesses in Chipley, Marianna, Lynn Haven, Altha, Blountstown, Kinard, Wewahitchka, Panama City, and Port St Joe, you are in my prayers. Many of my customers in Bainbride, Blakely, Donalsonville and Colquitt Georgia. Also, many towns in Alabama including Dothan, Abbeville and many in between. You also are in my prayers. I ask you all to put them in your thoughts and prayers. In all my lifetime, never have I seen this so widespread.
On a happy note, it is almost time to decorate for the Christmas season! Well, red, green, white and gold are still on top for Christmas colors. I am seeing a lot of silver still and some blues. I have added some pictures of our 2 trees at the front of the store decorated in red and white poinsettias with plaid ribbon. A very classic Christmas design is always a warming site for our eyes. Also added to the tree is green and white holly bushes that add more to the classic Christmas look.
On our other displayed tree, I have added the Elf theme. Kids love this as well as many fun loving parents! This theme fits well with the popular “Elf on the Shelf”, story book and toy. We have elf legs adorning the tree as a topper. Elves of different shapes and sizes and also a metal elf face is used as a focal point. The ribbon is a solid shiny red to tone down the many colors of red, green and white mix. As well as solid red shiny ornaments to pull it all together. This tree is a happy tree and makes me Smile when I look at it.
Lets all have a Merry Christmas and remember to keep us in your thoughts and prayers this Christmas season!
