A wonderful evening of goodwill and cheer was on tap as Kettle River Woodcraft hosted a Ladies Christmas Soiree Thursday evening, Nov. 21, from 5:30 to about 9:30.

The atmosphere of warmth and friendship was spiced with laughter as the ladies tried on Sarah Zier’s Vintage hats (they fell in love with them and even bought them); modeled some of the consignment clothing, tried to make arty cards with Jen Macfarlen’s Stampin’ Up, and tried to navigate through very crowded rooms.

Over 100 ladies attended, some with children, some with mothers and friends, all sampling the beautiful array of snacks and beverages. The scents from Sarah Geen’s Scentsy, evergreen boughs and locally made soaps permeated the air.

Women oohed and ahhed at Rebecca’s beautifully painted animal rocks, Klara’s crocheted angels and horses, Sara’s creative birdhouses, tasted Melanie’s delicious borscht, and admired works of many local artisans, all displayed amongst the warm patina of the Woodcraft furniture.

There were many generous door prizes given out to happy recipients. Thank you to the owners and staff of Kettle River Woodcraft—we look forward to next year’s soiree, it definitely got us in a Christmas mood!
