December 1st,

a perfectly snowy start to the Christmas season.

We had a party!


We love a good party, this one was to introduce our friends and family to our beautiful new shop.   Having fretted that nobody would come, we had 148 signatures in our visitors book of the bravest of the brave, intrepid in the extreme on the coldest night of the year so far.   The snow fell beautifully in tiny crisp granules as if for effect not wetting nor settling.

Thank you all those who came, we had such a happy time.

Delicious canapes provided by our dear Ross Jordan, exquisite roast beef, smoked salmon and the dearest little chocolate Christmas puddings. Tony and Sarah Palmer provided the best roast chestnuts I have ever eaten perfect little warm bags to thaw frozen fingers (s.jpalmer81@yahoo.com). Going home presents were handkerchiefs printed with a 1954 map of London highlighting CABBAGES & ROSES growing chain of shops.

We now have three!!

    Congrats!
    I just love C&R
    and am dreaming
    of the day in the
    not too distant
    future when I will
    visit one of these
    lovely brick and mortar
    shoppes and not just
    the virtual one. Many
    congratulations on your
    growing chain!

    It sounds like a wonderful time was had by all. I love the idea of the printed handkerchiefs as gifts for the guests. That’s so sweet and so perfect for C & R🙂
    Blessings,
    Marcia
