Our Grand Opening

Shoppes at Louviers: Newark, Delaware

     Thank you to all our wonderful customers, friends, and family who attended our grand opening gala on Thursday September 24, 2009.  It was a great success!  Thank you to our neighboring restaurants who provided us with amazing food: Blackstones Resturant & Pub, Cacciatori’s Pizza & Pasta, Pamela’s Gourmet, and Pinang Malaysian Restaurant & Sushi Bar.  Thank you to Deerfield Fine Wines for hosting a wine tasting during our gala and for providing valet parking.  Thank you NV Boutique for modeling the beautiful clothes available for sale at your store.  Thank you White Clay Creek Outfitters for showing your support and attending our event.  Last but not least, thank you to the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce who provided the ribbon cutting (and the big scissors!)

     We had a wonderful time and gave out some incredible door prizes.  I think our customers were shocked at how nice the items were!  Everyone who attended received a free wooden inlaid bookmark with our logo.  We also gave out free bouquets of flowers to everyone as a thank you for coming, and also to highlight the fresh flowers we sell every weekend!  All in all, we couldn’t have had a better evening.  We appreciate everyone’s support, and for following Creations to our new home in Newark! Go Blue Hens!

Deer Head

     The deer head has arrived from Ben and Kate Gatski: the amazing artists behind Gatski Metal.  I absolutely adore their work.  It’s hard to pick a favorite, but c’mon, this deer is too cool.  Other pieces we bought:

New (to us) local jeweler

     Ree Gallagher, from Chadds Ford, PA, creates the most magical pieces of jewelry.  Her “nest” earrings are handwoven from a single strand of anodized aluminum and swarovski crystals.  Although beautiful to look at on their own, the real magic happens when you try them on: you glow.  You just glow.  I don’t know how else to describe it.  When anyone I’ve seen wears these, their skin is luminescent.  I’ve never seen more flattering jewelry to a woman’s face.

Delivery!

     New rubber plush toys from Creatures of Delight.  These guys make us so happy.  They’re bright and cute and affordable!  The artists are just as fun too.  They made us laugh at the show.  You just get pulled in.

     I am LOVING these pieces by Ed and Kate Coleman.  So cool. They hold water for flowers, but I would buy them just as art objects.  Love, love, love.  They also make clocks and the coolest art tiles.  They are small, like 4 inches square, but look incredible grouped.  When I unpacked them, I was so tempted to buy them all myself…maybe I will!  Come in quick before I scoop them all up!
