Just wanted to post a few pictures and thank all the patrons who attended the Jane Coslick Holiday Cottage Tour. We raised over $12,000 for the Humane Society of Greater Savannah to aid in funding a low cost spay/neuter clinic!
The Coral Cottage was all dressed up for Christmas to meet her public :) and we had a great time making new friends! I'd like to show you all the decorations but I am going to be selective so I don't spoil the surprise when I reveal the other rooms in later posts.
Our very first guest was Terry, the man on the right. His family previously owned the Coral Cottage (see this post for more of the story). I was so happy and relieved that he seemed to love the way the cottage looks as much as I do. In fact, he called Jim Heflin at TybeeCottages.com and made the very first booking to stay one week in the spring!
|L to R: Vicky, Jane, and Terry chatting on the patio|
Jane Coslick came by to greet Terry--she and his sister Rosemary were close friends as young girls and she has fond memories of staying in the cottage years ago.
The color scheme on our little tree in the living room was silver and turquoise. I found some aqua-colored tulle at Michael's and used it with white wrapping paper for the gifts under the tree.
There were some extra unbreakable ornament balls and I decided to hang them on the coral chandelier! They made quite a statement and Jane thinks we should consider leaving them up permanently--take a look and tell me what you think about this. All of my Facebook friends, please leave your comments here on the blog!
To cap off the day, some floats from the Tybee Christmas parade made their way in front of the cottage. You've gotta love a Santa wearing shorts, flip flops and sunglasses!
I hope that your Christmas is merry and bright and full of love--and that you remember the reason for the season! Merry Christmas y'all!
