Thanksgiving Tablescape – How To

posted on November 15th, 2018 by Dani Fogel

Your tablescape will be the first thing your family and friends notice when they sit down for dinner, and we’re here to help make it feel like less of a burden. From locally-grown succulents and florals to simple and extra soft linens to plateware with pizazz to candles to really set the mood, we are fully stocked in our floral and housewares department with everything you need to achieve that picture-perfect table you saw on Pinterest. Go Green with Festive Florals The foliage on your holiday dinner table should be fresh and natural, but not overbearing to the point where guests will be confused as to what’s a garnish and what’s decor. Start with succulents, greenery, and arrangements from Bristol Farms’ floral department. All of our sustainable greens are grown in the wild and sourced from farm to vase from Continental Floral Greens. Locally-grown poinsettias or a noble fir wreath are just some of what you can expect to find. Small twigs or branches can be tucked away… Read More

Essential Tools for Making Pie

posted on June 19th, 2018 by Kim Kaczor-Wardlow

Whenever I think of peach season, I reminisce about a farm we used to visit up in Acton to pick fresh, sweet peaches. Naturally, we would go home with our peaches and have a pie baking celebration. I just love making peach pies this time of year. If you've ever made a pie, you know that having the right tools can mean great success or saddened failure for your pie.

Holiday stress is a very real thing. Never mind wrapping presents right now - many of us are wrapping up all the loose ends at work and are making sure the kids have things to do on break so we can find the time to go on the many errands that Christmas demands.

Not to worry; we have something for everyone at our stores between our quite extensive housewares department and of course, our lovely wine and spirits section too.
