The Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

In the world of retail, Christmas comes early, and SummerHouse is no exception! We've recently put out some beautiful holiday items to make the showroom bright and festive! Vintagey jingle bells, snowy ornaments, sparkly table-sized trees... And it can all go home with you if you want it to! ;)

Stay tuned for pictures of the whole showroom in its full holiday glory. Coming soon!

Home for the Holidays

Happy Monday everybody!  We hope you had a great weekend!  Friday, several of us spent the day getting a very special customer's house ready for a Christmas party they were having that night.  Melanie did an amazing job with all of the Christmas decorations and floral arrangements.  And this house (you may recognize it from our Before and After: Bookshelves post a couple of weeks ago!) is a project that Lisa has been working on for years.  It is finally almost finished and it is absolutely breath-taking! Take a peek....

Christmas Open House: A Success!

We had so much fun at the Christmas open house last Thursday!  We were glad that so many people were able to make it out!  Viking provided us with some really awesome baked brie and bite sized desserts, and the Madison Central Madrigals and RHS choir delivered some beautiful holiday music.  The horse and carriage rides (which guests were able to "buy" with a donation to CARA) got rave reviews from everyone we talked to!

Perhaps the things we were MOST excited about at the open house were our trunk shows!  Ann Taylor Duease, founder and designer for Adonis, brought her gorgeous handmade jewelry to show.  She ended up having a pretty successful night! :) And our Jonathan Adler trunk show ended up being the most beautiful, colorful corner in the store! It is still set up if you were unable to come see it on Thursday.

We have already started working on ideas to make next year's open house even better!! So you'll have to be sure to come back!  Maybe by next year, we will have our new neighbors, Newk's and Majestic Burger, up and running! 

Hopefully this picture of our sweet (and HILARIOUS) carriage driver, Wayne, with a couple of our open house guests will make you smile on this chilly Monday!  If you didn't get to meet Wayne this year, then you MUST come back next year.... If you have never talked to him, you are missing out!

Merry Christmas!

A Holly Jolly Christmas!

Yesterday, Marty, Brittany and Melanie worked hard getting all the final Christmas touches put on the store in preparation for our open house tomorrow!  Don't forget about Christmas at Colony Park from 5:00 to 8:00 tomorrow evening! There will be fun and food (and CARA animals that need good homes) for the whole family!

Even after the open house is over, be sure to visit us often as we have great new gift items arriving daily!  We also have a new station set up for you to fix a cup of coffee or warm cider so you can sip on something good while you shop! (Just make sure you don't spill any coffee on a white sofa... :) )

We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!
