Home for the Holidays


Where did this year go? Seriously?!

There's no denying 2017 was action-packed here on the East Coast, and while time sure does fly when you're having fun - our mission this Christmas is to make the most of every minute!

We sure would love to slow down the days between December 1st and the New Year, but as the calendar accumulates notes of 'must attend' events and 'can't miss' commitments - we realize this might just be the fastest month of them all.  So where does that leave us with our plans to maximize those festive feelings?

We're going to schedule in as much HOME time as we can!  That means HOME baking those treasured family recipes and trying out new dishes on friends and family who pop in to celebrate.  It means staying close to HOME to do our shopping - buying locally and supporting our regional crafters and creators, and moved by the spirit of the SEAson - going HOME-made route for our gift-giving this year!

Here on SEA AND BE SCENE you'll find plenty of ways to make the most of your holidays at HOME too - with SEAsonal sweets and savoury bites perfect for home entertaining, to glorious grown-up Christmas cocktails and pleasing punches for guests of every age.

And we've been busy in the SEA AND BE SCENE workshop again this year - with easy-to-make decor and crafts, and yummy gotta try treats!  We're following up on our SEAsonal salute to Candy Canes, Snowmen and Christmas Trees with an all new series of segments that will have you SEAing Stars.

We're so happy you're spending a smidge of your Christmas here on SEA AND BE SCENE. From our HOME to Yours - may it be your merriest ever!!!  SABS
