COLDWATER – Get into the holiday spirit with Arts Alive’s “The Art of Holiday Food, Drinks, and Décor” event at Tibbits on Tuesday, Nov 14 from 6-9pm.
The local art group, under the umbrella of the Tibbits Opera Foundation, is known for its ArtWalk in Coldwater every spring and fall as well as its themed gallery shows at Tibbits. Arts Alive is currently reorganizing and offering an event geared toward the Christmas holiday.
“This is the perfect ‘Girls Night Out’ or ‘Mommy’s Night Off’ event! If you’re planning on hosting a party this season, then this event will take care of all of your needs—food, drink, décor… and you’ll even have the opportunity to do some of your Christmas shopping downstairs!” said event co-chair Stephanie Burdick.
The stage will feature live 30-minute demonstrations throughout the night. Brian Marteen and Mikayla Mock from JT’s Billiard Bar & Grill will provide recipes and feature several holiday cocktails for taste-testing at 6:30pm and 7:30pm. One of the samples, “JT’s Christmas Cookie Drink,” will also be available for purchase at the cash bar. Tom Garman from The Museum Gallery will take the stage at 7pm and 8pm to tackle common décor problems plus lead attendees through some fresh decorating ideas for 2017. Towards the end of the night, several donated centerpieces as well as a large giveaway basket will be raffled off.
The lower level of Tibbits will feature a variety of artists and vendors who have been hand-selected for this event, and each will have a booth of unique gifts for purchase. From pottery to primitive décor to Michigan-themed gifts to jewelry to soaps, lotion and more, there will be an eclectic selection from which to peruse. Complimentary appetizers provided by Tasteful Kreations will also be available on the lower level, where Chef Tricia Mayer will be on hand to provide recipe cards and talk with patrons. Complimentary chair massages for guests attending the event will be provided by Snip-Itz Salon.
This event is hosted by Arts Alive & Tibbits Opera House and is sponsored by JT’s Billiard Bar & Grill, Museum Gallery, Tasteful Kreations, and Snip-Itz Salon. The centerpieces for the raffle have been generously donated by Neitzert’s Greenhouse & Gifts, Modern Revival, Loveberry Farms, Gleis Orchards & Greenhouses, and Small Town Sweet Boutique.
