Easy Entertaining Tips

Are you entertaining a lot this month? Here are some quick and easy suggestions that we've found work beautifully ...

1. Pick up a couple bottles of wine, a brick of cream cheese, crackers, and ginger cookies at the grocery store.

2. Stop at Joli and pick up some of the Bella Cucina Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto and one of the Sweet Key Lime, Blood Orange, or Lemon Spreads (50% off right now). Don't forget some paper plates and festive napkins.

3. Pour the Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto over cream cheese, and serve with crackers.

4. Serve the ginger cookies with one of the Sweet Spreads.

5. Pour yourself a glass of wine, sit down, and relax with your friends!

Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?!

Wondrous Wednesday

We shopgirls are pretty busy. With one of us being a full-time Mama plus Shopgirl and the other one being a Nana and Shopgirl, we're pretty much never available to visit our favorite shops during business hours. And gettting our hair done ... you should see the juggling act it takes to fit that in!

So as we were heading up to Pennsylvania recently for a last-minute/emergency visit, we started discussing how we feel bad for the many others in the same boat as us. How do they get their shopping done? Especially at this time of year?

And that's how we came up with Wondrous Wednesday. We're going to stay open until 7:00 tonight to give all of you busy ladies (and men) a chance to shop your favorite (c'mon, you know we're at least in your top 10 .... right??) local shop without being in a rush.

Leave the kids at home (properly supervised, of course), and head on over. Have a glass of wine. Try some delicious goodies from Dr. Pete's. Let us show you around the shop and help you out with your gift-giving needs. We've got a variety of gifts in a variety of price ranges. Plus, we've got a number of items on sale ... up to 75% off! How can you pass that up?

And if you can't leave the kids at home, bring 'em! We'll keep them entertained so you can look around.

If ya'll like this, we'll keep it going for the next few weeks. So please stop by tonight. We hate to drink alone ;)
