It was a gorgeous afternoon out at the Tumbler Ridge Golf Course and the golf course restaurant was the perfect setting for the Sunday Afternoon Tea hosted by Monika Brown. Present at this lovely event were the BODY SHOP at HOME, Party-Lite and Gramma?s Attic. ?I love this space,? commented Brown, as she gestured towards the Golf Course Restaurant window. ?I can?t believe it isn?t utilized more. It is so beautiful and provides the perfect backdrop for any activity.?
There was tea, coffee, sandwiches, finger foods and sweets and of course if anyone was hungry, they could order of the Golf Course Restaurant menu. The three-dollar cover charge offered each attendee a chance at winning one of the three door prizes sponsored by each of the businesses.
The event targeted people of all ages and moms were welcome to bring their little ones along, which was nice for those who can?t make it out to evening parties because of their children. Each business had their own tables and those attending were encouraged to take their time and browse.
Gramma?s Attic displayed their lovely treasures on several tables. Items including afghans, country accessories, folk art, pine décor and enamel wares were displayed so people could choose what they wanted to buy and then place their order.
Party-lites is well known to many people in Tumbler Ridge. The Party-lite display included candles of all varieties and candleholders and body lotions. The Party-lite candles are well known for being top quality and burning completely. Carley was on hand to take people?s orders for her product.
The BODY SHOP at HOME displayed their products, which were until recently, available only at BODY SHOP stores. ?Anything you can buy in the BODY SHOP store, you can get through me,? said Monika
The BODY SHOP at HOME offered shipping discounts on orders over $50.00 at the tea and those present received a Cranberry Body Butter sample from the Christmas 2004 line.
?This was a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon,? said several of the ladies as they left. The winning numbers for the door prizes are Body Shop at home….289032, Party Lite 289001, Gramma’s Attic 289044
