Ribbon cutting & Open House-gullycreekcottage-sunflowers

We’ve been in our new H❤︎ME for 2 1/2 months now.  Our busy accomplishments drove us and kept us going in order to set a date for our Ribbon cutting – Open House.

On Friday, September 14th…we did just that!  Many of our friends, family, new friends, and community came out in support and to tour our place.  

We were so excited to see so many show up.

While I greeted those coming in the door, Boo remained upstairs to give the room tours.  We couldn’t have been happier with the way the evening progressed and that everything worked out as it was planned.

What is an Open House without fresh flowers? Cause I gotta say that some people are just too sweet!  Some of my “new friends” dropped off some fresh flowers and my wonderful husband had the local florist deliver some sunflowers.  (Btw Kathleen, your flowers went so well with the sunflowers that I decided to combine them!)

We were both so busy greeting and mingling, we didn’t get any photos of the visitors.  I did manage to get pictures of the food prepping and menu items.  Here’s a look.

These were for the pancake and fruit picks…lots of mini buttermilk pancakes.  (I had to keep the 1 year old grandchild from eating them all!)
