If you know my mom, you know she's a perfectionist, especially when it comes to decorating. And she's got serious decorating skills. Just see Hidden Mountain Resort or current holiday decorations at First Baptist Sevierville.
And somehow I'm her daughter... :D
So, I was about to leave home the morning of November 30, and I had a frantic call from Mom. Mom: "Summer, do you know that your orange bows are still up at the cafe?!" (Panic) Me:"Yes, Mom, I've seen them. It's November 30." (Distress) Mom: "But NO ONE still has orange bows up! It's Christmas-time. You have to put red bows up. Where are your red bows?" (Anguish) Me: "The red bows are going up today. I have them at the cafe. I promise it is on today's to-do list. We'll get it done." (Heart rate returning to normal) Mom: "Well, okay, I just hope no one sees them today before the red ones go up."
So funny! But guess what? It is now Christmas at the cafe! And the beautiful little Gingerbread decoration right inside the front door is from Mom. Thank you!:)
Racheal created our Holiday Drinks chalkboard:
Our holiday drinks are Candy Cane Mocha (espresso, frosted mint syrup, and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and crushed candy cane) and Melted Snowcream (steamed milk, white chocolate,vanilla, topped with marshmallows and whipped cream).
Here is the Candy Cane Mocha:
We also have a scrumptious Christmas panini: Ham, homemade Raspberry Sauce, Spinach, Pear, and Brie on Croissant. Really a treat!
So, if you need more holiday cheer, come on over! If we're closed, you can probably find us at any Christmas activity available! If you need any ideas, here are some recommendations: Dollywood at night- Thunderhead in the dark was fantastic; the carousel is always fun; and of course the toy parade and lights in general increase holiday cheer! Then, the Black Bear Jamboree Dinner Show was really excellent, the snow was falling at the Titanic, we enjoyed kettlecorn by the ice skating rink on Market Square in Knoxville, and now we're looking forward to a Christmas tour of homes in Old North Knoxville tomorrow and then the Singing Christmas Tree Sunday or Monday night at FBC, Sevierville,too. I just love this time of year.
Hope to see you soon! :), Summer
