Nothing says Christmas like hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies, and each year we look forward to kicking off December with the perfect mix of these holiday favourites. We prepared dozens of cookies, along with comforting hot beverages for 150 guests for the annual holiday open house at Heffner Lexus Toyota.
Display table for the Yule log cake
Traditional Yule log - we fill ours with freshly whipped cream and cover it with chocolate ganache. It tastes as good as it looks!
The "bar", featuring hot chocolate, apple cider, coffee, tea, cappuccino, and Perrier
Just a few of the many cookies and treats we created for the open house. Rum balls and mincemeat tarts are always a hit.

Christmas candies to nibble on during the reception
Pretty decor throughout the sales building to welcome guests and get everyone in the mood for Christmas. We especially love the traditional carolers each year.
