T'was a Holiday Window

Cupcake Jenna

The pressure was on...

T'was the day before Thanksgiving, when all through downtown,

Stores were decorating their windows, with everything but a clown.

The twinkle lights were hung by Pete's Coffee with care,

In hopes that Black Friday sales would soon be there.

The Cupcakes were drawing up plans of design,

For their famous windows, known for being refined.

And Jenny in her Ugg boots, and I in my hoodie,

Had just broken out the stored Christmas goodies.

When out from Jenny there arose such a thought,

To use simple coffee filters, but not in a pot.

Away to the grocery store, she flew like a flash,

And came back with the filters, mesh, and paint... the whole stash.

To work we went with creativity and glue,

Making Christmas trees out of what we normally use to brew.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,

But three miniature trees, with a green sprayed veneer.

We added colorful ornaments, snowflakes and snow,

With it all tied together, it was quite a holiday show.

More rapid that eagles the manikins we dressed,

And Jenny whistled, and shouted, and put on a vest.

"Now Nano! Now, Mimi & Maggie! Now, Fore and 191!

On, Appaman! On, Petit Lem! On, Goorin and Persnickety!

To the front of the window! To the side of the wall!

Now model away! Model away! Model away all!"

As quick as the kids who run to the play area,

The twinkle lights hung, with little hysteria.

And last but not least and with much care and ease,

We placed Melissa and Doug toys under the trees.

We sprang with joy at the completion of the display,

And we let out a sign and a yell of, "Hurray!"

But I heard Jenny exclaim, 'ere we took our final look,

"Happy Christmas to all, and they should turn THIS poem into a book."

Great Experience

Our visit to your adorable store was a treat. My two and a half granddaughter had never been properly measured for shoes before. The sales woman who waited on us was very sweet and after measuring Ruby’s feet brought out 5 pairs of shoes to try. The shoes are well made, comfortable and easy for Ruby to put on all by herself.

Darling dress

Granddaughter loves this.

Cozy and cute

Perfect for my 6mo for the cold Fall mornings. It’s thin enough for her not to overheat but thick enough to keep her warm. I purchased size 6-9 month… it’s a little big on her now but still fits and she will be able to grow into it and wear it through winter

Cutest dress ever!

What an uplifting morning, choosing among adorable and distinctive dresses for my newest family member! And the staff helped me add bows and tights and all the little extras that make shopping at Cupcake so much fun. My niece is thrilled, and MacKenzie will look darling when she gets big enough. ( I always buy for those later months OUT there a bit!) Great experience, and I will go back because the clothing is so tasteful and not at all the latest fad.
