Happy Holidays with Cookies and Flowers

Merry Christmas Eve!  These are a few of my favorite things, as I've mentioned.  We've been pretty busy at work prepping for the holiday season with lots of yummy, fragrant things...
I didn't get to make a gingerbread house myself this year, but the pastry department was busy making 3.  They still had time to make a little ginger friend though.
Then in the hall I found some beautiful orange roses that we ordered for an event.
Then back in the kitchen the rooves had been iced and chimneys added.
Over in the office we'd had a delivery of dozens of white roses.
Then it was candy time in the kitchen.
And I went to the conference room to get the green, white, orange and pink roses, and the pink and white peonies into water
and when I got back to the kitchen there were some little trees too.
And lots of cookies!
And sprinkles!
And then the houses were done and ready to be packed
and delivered to the parties
along with all the little cookies.
Later I walked by L'Olivier Floral Atelier, which I'd visited in the spring and their fluffy pink and purple trees, a fun twist on the holiday.  Best wishes for a Merry Christmas this weekend!
