Cashmere, Candles & Cupcakes



I’m so excited we are holding another Cashmere, Candles & Cupcakes – the event will be on Wednesday, February 25, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Kringle Candle’s Country Barn. I just can’t wait. This is our third Cashmere, Candles & Cupcakes.  The first was held last February, and the recent string of winter storms and cold temperatures reminds me of that evening. The snow began as I parked my car. I rushed to the Barn to meet up with friends.  When I closed the door to the inclement weather, I was drawn inside by a warm fire, a festive and friendly crowd, and the feel of soft cashmere.  The second event took place on a beautiful starlit fall evening, and the retail campus was a hustle and bustle.

Many of Kringle’s vendors attended both events, introducing their newest creations. Some offered delicious bites of savory and sweet treats, including yummy Smithsonian cupcakes – and my favorite red velvet!  Of course, there were candles too – Kringle Candles – they go perfectly with my decor! Joe and Julianna, Kringle’s scarf-tying experts, captivated the crowd by demonstrating 35 unique ways to wear a scarf. I love scarves. I wrap mine, toss over shoulders or drape.  Now, I can easily change it up to the men’s tie or a basic loop. Julianna and Sandy will join us on the 25th.

There are lots of fantastic giveaways – what will people choose, the gift basket, the cashmere scarf or something else…?

I’ve marked it on my calendar – Cashmere, Candles & Cupcakes – Wednesday, February 25, 6:30 – 8 p.m. This year, there will be many vendors participating. It is sure to be a great night!  Executive Chef Brent Menke from The Farm Table will also be on hand giving a taste of the restaurant’s farm to table cuisine. There will be great giveaways and all scarves and a selection of personal care items are 25% off.

Tomorrow, I’m wearing a lovely sparkling blue scarf to work that I bought at the Country Barn. I plan on a quick toss; draping one end over my shoulder and tossing the longer over my neck. When Julianna sees me, within seconds she’ll style with a few loops here and there and transform me into a celebrity.
