Take a walk in your backyard thinking of what can be cut and arranged to make an appealing decoration. Pine cones can be sprayed with gold paint or glitter to add some color and sparkle. Even bark can add some interest to an arrangement.
Add a little snow and you have added interest to your porch or pots in the garden.

I am sure that I will not even hit half of the reasons why Lititz is such an amazing small town and why so many people put it on their must see list when visiting Lancaster County. Many of our guests come specifically for this quaint town filled with delightful shops, charming cafes, a really wonderful pub and permeated with the smell of chocolate. How can you not love a town that smells like chocolate while you shop?
One of my very favorite shops is Cherry Acres right on Main Street. They feature furniture made from old barn wood, enameled sinks, and a wide variety of metal artsy figures that are just plain fun. It is a place that you walk through and each time see something different. My last visit found me leaving with a wonderful old mirror framed in barn wood.

These are just a few of my favorites. Main Street is lined with many small shops including one at the Moravian Church, a favorite place to purchase Moravian Stars for the holidays.
After all this shopping a break at the Chocolate Cafe for one of their smooth and rich chocolate drinks is just a perfect way to break up the day. If you are into something stronger the Bull's Head pub just down the way has an impressive array of truly stellar beer on tap.
Now all we need are a few snow flurries to make it all just ... perfect.
