Boerne Diva Night!

This evening took months of planning for us local retailers.  Some blood, sweat, tears… and a lot of love.

And the evening went like so:

The check-in stations at Dienger Trading Company and The Flower Shop opened up right at 5:00.  The first 100 ladies at each station got to check in and register to win the two pretty incredible prize baskets that we all donated our products to.  The ladies also walked away with a swag bag containing a boa, a tiara, coupons, pamphlets, chocolate, and gifts.  And then the ladies were set loose on Main Street, all along the Hill Country Mile!

 

From our end (way up north of most of the happenings), things stayed busy but not crowded.

We had Little Brown Crane join us, with a table set up on our sidewalk to sell her homemade, home-sewn coloring/art folders, diaper clutches, and nap mats.

 

Hill Country Homestead also joined her on our sidewalk, giving out olive oil dips and samples of her organic, homemade bread.  To some of our shoppers’ delight, she was also selling some of that goodness… so they could take it home with them.

 

I had decorated the sidewalk area to be an inviting place for girl friends to sit and relax.  We had paper lanterns hung, comfy chairs and couches set out, coffee tables for their drinks, and music playing.

 

Inside, we had all of our usual homemade products available for shopping (lip balms, healing salves, vapor rubs, body scrubs, warmer melts, and laundry detergents).  Our pink himalayan salt lamps and doTERRA products were all in stock.  We had also our new Monat hair care line for sale.

 

Our fiesta medals were up for grabs.  ($4 from the sale of each one is going to be donated to Kendall County 4-H and our 4-H poultry group!)

 

And we had some limited edition Boerne greeting cards available for purchase, made by one of my favorite fellow makers (PolkaDot Paper Company).

 

We had several of Shutter-Happy Photography’s portrait backgrounds available for selfies.

 

 

And we had lots of goodies to enjoy…

I made AllRecipes’ Foolproof Fudge (one of my easiest and yummiest recipes).  Yummy, creamy, decadent, and dreamy!

 

I made AllRecipes’ Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread.  Moist, spicy, delicious… and so easy to make.

 

I whipped up Just a Pinch’s Leche Quemada.  Chalky, sugary-sweet, with a beautiful, caramel flavor.

 

And I pulled together Sally’s Baking Addiction’s Honeycrisp Apple Sangria (which I heard was pretty amazing)!

 

So we spent the evening visiting, selling, snacking, and totally enjoying ourselves!

{A big THANK YOU to all of our friends, family, and customers that dropped by to support us!}

 

Now, from what I’ve heard:

There was a great dj and some entertaining singers in front of Joli.  The most exciting food were the donuts at Flashback FuntiquesPixie had a beautiful selfie station.  Some friends were really excited about the cute items they scored at Dang Sassy.  Ladies loved our cute cups and lounge area.  There was delicious alcohol everywhere.  The best things were the shops’ awesome clearance racks.  And everyone had a fabulous time!

We sure hope you made it to fun evening.  If not, watch for the spring date!
