Adventures in Curtsyland!

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

The Curtsy Girls love the holidays! Even though it means little sleep and lots of extra work, we really dig all the merriment this season brings. I hosted my annual
Christmas Cookie Decorating Extravaganza this week and it was a blast! This has been my tradition ever since my kids were little. I bake dozens of cookies, make many, many containers of different colors of icing, put all of it out on a big table and have the kids invite all their friends. As they have gotten older, the cookies have gotten so much funnier and more creative. Of course now that they are adults and able to imbibe a bit while they decorate, it seems to take the whole process to a new level.

Yesterday was truly a crazy day at Curtsyland. The store was really busy and Danielle had been hired by the owners of Franks Oysterhouse and Champagne Parlor, one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants,( create some of her custom poms for their holiday decorations. Of course when it was time to install them, and we both had to leave to do it, the store was crazy busy. Luckily, Curtsy Girl Pamela was here to handle the fray. We just posted one of our new Keep Calm and Carry On canvases in front of her :).

Speaking of custom creations, did you know that Curtsy Bella offers custom made Diaper Cakes? These make wonderful centerpieces/gifts for the mom to be. The one that is pictured above included some goodies from the store as gifts and then Danielle coordinated the colors with the baby shower colors for a stunning main attraction.

If you are looking for a fabulous customized gift, don't forget about the beautiful monograms that we are offering on the Emilie Sloan bags. These bags have been the most sought after gift this season and Seattlites are loving the personalization that we're able to add. To insure that your bags are ready for the holiday, get your orders placed soon.
