Holiday Open House at Primrose
October 31, November 1 & 2
Gather your friends and ring in the holidays with a special visit to our gift shop where you will find many wonderful ideas for entertaining, gift giving and decorating during this magical season. Our team of buyers, display artists and florists are planning a sublime Winter Wonderland as we hope to inspire your creativity and jump start your enthusiasm for the celebrations of Winter. There will be new additions and old favorites including Christmas trees decorated with a mix of new and vintage ornaments and our mohair ‘snow’.
The mohair has been washed and carded by a processor in Maltby and Debra will be mixing mica into the fibers to create the glistening, silver frost look so beautiful on trees, mantles, shelves or even firewood. You can have a magical frosted Christmas tree without the mess of flocking or glitter plus you can remove and store the snow to use in future years.
Additionally, the antique French white ironstone soup tureens appearing in so many magazines this last year will be on center stage. We purchased them from a friend in France who understands our look. Tureens in perfect condition can be used for serving hearty soups and stews and the rest will be planted with hyacinths, paperwhites and hellebores for holiday displays. These tureens are lovely for the ‘Vintage by Nina’ look that is so popular and, when not in use, they will add an old world look to your kitchen, dining room and even living room. We also have beautiful French floral antique quilts. Quilts such as these have moved out of the bedroom and into the living room where everyone can enjoy them. They can be thrown over the arm of the sofa, used as a partial slip cover over the seat and back of a chair or sofa or stacked in a cupboard or under a side table. Just being on display they add a sense of warmth and comfort to cold winter mornings and dark winter evenings.
Primrose will be closed October 27, 28 and 29 so we can decorate to our hearts’ content. We may even paper the windows so guests will be completely surprised when we reopen for our Holiday Open House.
