So, I feel like I have some serious catching-up to do for the Christmas holiday that is just three weeks away!! I am receiving hundreds of emails from vendors and bloggers with so many great ideas for gifts and holiday decor- a wee bit overwhelming, as I have not even made my list, never mind checking it twice.
This time of year I especially enjoy local craft fairs and events that highlight the Christmas season without being too “mall”ish. Because of our crazy schedule last month, I have missed many of my favs already. However, on Wednesday, December 5th, I am hoping to check out the Holiday Shop and Sip at the Wenham Tea House,
to benefit the Wenham Village Improvement Society. Formed in 1893 by a small group of women, its original objective was to beautify the Town of Wenham, Massachusetts and make it a better place to live. Today the mission statement of the WVIS is “To serve the changing needs of the Wenham community, while honoring the history and traditions of the Wenham Village Improvement Society.” The Wenham Tea House, owned by the WVIS, hosts various events, including breakfasts, luncheons and teas, catered by Henry’s Market of Beverly, a favorite local gourmet grocer for over 65 years.
So I am hoping to make a dent in my shopping at the Shop and Sip, while listening to some Christmas music and having a glass of cheer. And if that doesn’t get me into the swing of things, there is always the Gingerbread House Construction Party on the 8th!
Now that would be a sweet way to start the holidays! Susan
