Baby it’s cold outside….so put on your skates and then keep warm by the fire with sweets and treats! Last winter my family and I hosted a little skating party in our back yard (actually woods and a pond!)….We all had a grand time! Cyd at The Sweetest Occasion thought it was great too and highlighted the party on her blog – thanks Cyd!! Check it out and get inspired for some winter fun!!
This past June Beautiful Days once again took part in decorating the VIP tent for the annual Share Our Strength Seacoast‘s Taste of the Nation fundraising event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The goal of Share Our Strength is to end child hunger in our communities. During the holidays, a time of abundance and indulgence, warmth and love, it is easy to overlook the many children who will not celebrate around a table overflowing with food and whose daily basic nutritional needs are not met.
It is truly an honor to be part of such a crucial cause in our community. The theme for the VIP tent was local, seasonal food highlighted by foods framed in old windows, a farmer’s table highlighting the offerings of the season, greens potted up from my garden and a farmer’s porch. Enjoy and be inspired to do your part to end child hunger in your neighborhood.
Be sure to get your tickets for the 2011 event! It’s a great way to start off the summer and always a fantastic gathering!
Special thanks to Geneve Hoffman for the fabulous photos!
A woman alone can be a creative and brilliant motivator, artist, business person, wife, mother, teacher, mentor…but put 42 super talented and creative women filmmakers together and watch out! Check out this fantastic film “Women Create” and get inspired and empowered (and even a little teary - I did!) I am honored to share this with you and especially proud of amazing photographer Brea McDonald and equally amazing filmmaker Meg Simone for being a part of it.
