Hot Cocoa & All the Fixins!!!

Girls' Night Out might have been a frosty evening, but who could complain with free hot cocoa and other yummy treats being served throughout Historic Downtown Millersburg! It was a fun night for all who attended, with incredible shopping deals, giveaways, spa treatments and more!

Stef thought of it all when it came to the ultimate hot cocoa bar. Set atop one of 55's signature buffets, this spread included white chocolate mints, colorful sprinkles, cinnamon sticks, cookie crumbles and everyone's favorite - mini marshmallows!

Guests had more time to browse and shop this year, making it easier to check out all of the incredible treasures tucked throughout the store.

This fun set of painted antiques was a welcome greeting at the entrance of the shop. I love the funky little stand with the retro phone!

Pat and Joanne had a chance to catch up with one another shortly before the party started on Saturday afternoon.

Stef brought the pieces above together to create my favorite display in the shop. The light blues and greens and whites are a great complement to our wintry weather, but there's a hint of spring there too. I love the new window paintings with words of wisdom and inspiration. (The one in this photo says, "Happiness consists in realizing it is all a great, strange dream.")

Stef spruced up our tiny washroom with a fun yet classy new floor painting and painted black and white fabrics.

Stef shared some memories of many hours spent in the roller rink when she was a kid, but unfortunately, these skates are too small for her to show us her moves. Someday, though, the perfect pair will come through her shop, and then we want to see what she's really made of!!!

Girls' Night Out is a great time to let loose with your best girlfriends (and sisters!) and have a little fun. These five sisters were a real highlight of our night, with their boldly emblazened T-shirts proclaiming that each was Mom's favorite daughter. Mom wasn't there to give us the real scoop, but we have a feeling she'd never be able to choose between her gorgeous girls!

Stef's good friend Fern stopped in for the festivities and found a beautiful necklace that was perfect for her! Thanks to everyone who joined us for a fun night! If you weren't able to be there, be sure to stop in soon to see all the new antiques, handmade jewelry and one-of-a-kind window paintings! ~Jamie
