Event Details

The Whitestone Inn 2013 Christmas in July event was a huge success and included amazing holiday foods, engaging classes, and beautiful decor ideas.

Two groups of guests rotated through 4 interactive classes sharing tips for preparing for the holidays. Class leaders demonstrated bow making, decor, snack mixes, gift wrapping, and planning and organizing for the holidays.Christmas planner

Inside and out, the Lion and the Lamb building was decorated for Christmas. Guests were treated to a display of several tables set with linens, centerpieces, and china. Each table had its own theme and colors.
The Whitestone chefs tantalized our taste buds all day! We began the morning with a holiday themed breakfast. Refreshing holiday drinks, a candy table, and snacks kept us fueled for our day. Later, we sat down for an amazing plated lunch complete with bread, soup, appetizer, salad, and a delicious entree. We ended the day with an indulgent dessert buffet.
