Glam Vintage & Moderne's entry for The Festival of Trees

Glam Vintage & Moderne’s entry for The Festival of Trees

The Port Hope Festival of Trees starts this Friday, which conveniently takes place:

a) after this recent snow dump has cleared b) on the same night as The Candlelight Walk and LIghting of Memorial Park and c) on the same night as Moonlight Madness.

Festival of Trees 2013

This is a night where you can kickstart your Christmas.  In the afternoon visit the Capitol Theatre and enter a draw for your favourite of the 80 trees .  Glam’s tree is the one without a single bare spot.  It is fully laden with berries, bows, balls and feathers in warm tones of gold and peach.  It is DONE…I mean totally!

Have a little dinner at one of Port Hope’s great restos then at 7pm warm your heart by watching the traditional Candlelight Walk to the lighting ceremony in Memorial Park.

Finally snap out of the glow and  “START YOUR SHOPPING”.  Most of the retailers will provide discounts “Friday night only” so take advantage of their generosity and get your list ticked off locally at reduced prices.  Call some friends and make a date for this special night out.

Better still,  invite them to stay over.  Nothing takes the edge off like the sights and sounds of the following day’s whimsical Port Hope Santa Claus parade coupled with a Tylenol extra strength.

Pa rump a pum pum.

Bubbly and Bites under the Moonlight

Tonight Glam Vintage & Moderne celebrates  “Moonlight Madness” with our local customers.  We’ll ply you with a little bubbly and some divine nibbles a la Queenies (The Port Hope French Bakery) and Richard will provide lots of free design advice.

Our new amazing line of Saxon chocolates has arrived just in time for your next hostess gift.  How about some chocolate dipped fruit, enrobed marshmallows or a chocolate fondue set for 2?   Santa’s probably awfully tired of resting with milk and cookies.  How about chocolate and a new chair?
