Summer is finally here!

I have to say that this spring has been pleasant…not to hot, not to rainy…just right, for me anyway. We were very busy with all the spring holidays; Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Teacher Appreciation (not really a holiday, but it still keeps us busy).

Now that all the spring bustle is over, it’s time to relax…or is it? For us, summer is the time to prepare for the biggest of all holidays…Christmas. That’s the time when everyone sends gifts of appreciation and love to friends, family and business associates, so we need a lot of time to get ready.

The beautiful catalogs have been arriving for about a month now. There are so many new and exciting products to choose from. Pretty holiday confections, gorgeous gifts and really scrumptious gourmet treats.

We’re also designing our holiday baskets and gift packages, taking photos and getting ready to post them on our website in the Holidays link. Here’s a little preview of one of our Italian Specialty Baskets.All B 0.2 Christmas 2014 016

We also will have new gift basket designs for fall and Thanksgiving.

So stay tuned for all the exciting things to come.

Happy a happy summer!
