Ladies Night Out

“Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine to the mind.”

Susan Mayer from Divine Florals provided us with the most beautiful blooms for our Ladies Night Out. It was so much fun watching the flowers become bouquets. Some ladies made their own and others shopped and socialized while Lori made their arrangement for them. Yummy snacks were available to all and there were a few vendor stands to browse as well. We were so glad to host each one of you and we hope you come back again next time. Flowers really do brighten up the day for anyone who enjoys them and in the "middle of winter" they are extra special!! It was so much fun watching each of you enjoy your flowers. They certainly were gorgeous!

Cheddar Seasoned Pretzels

Diane Burkholder

If you have never tasted these pretzels you are completely missing out! They are so good, it is easy to eat almost a whole box in one sitting. I'm gonna post the recipe at the end so you can make them for yourself, but before you do that be sure to read through the tips from Anita. We recommend these pretzels as a snack for everything from a sports event to a ladies spa night. They are just that good. When you come to our store we serve them alongside coffee so you can snack while you shop.

The beautiful juice cups also from our store. The recipe is pictured below. If you are a non cooking person like me you will need some tips. Be sure to use the powder sour cream and onion POWDER. I know it says it there but i might be the kind of person to just go ahead and try the liquid sour cream. Another tip is to mix the oil and the sour cream and onion powder together before you mix in the other ingredients with the pretzels. Let us know how they turn out! And you can always buy them here and have them shipped to your home.

Sweet Treats Tour

Diane Burkholder

Maybe you never heard of a Sweets Treat Tour. There are different varieties and lots of locations in the world but this is what we did! We included five of the family stores, Kings Acres ( Salted Caramel Donuts) Kings Homestead  (Cupcakes) Kings Impressions (Cheesecake Bites) King's Kountry Korner  (Oreo Truffles) Metal and Crate (Chocolate Covered Strawberries), and the treat they served. The Cupcakes were made by Sweet Shenanigans and the donuts by M&A Sweets. Everything else was made in house! SOOOOOOO good. We also held a drawing. As you visited your first store you received an arm bracelet and a sheet for stamping. If you stamped your sheet full indicating you visited all five stores you were eligible to win a $125.00 gift card for any of the stores participating. This event was also a fundraiser for the Allegany Boys Camp in Oldtown, MD.

If you missed us this year, watch out for 2019. This is an annual event!

Some Springtime News

Diane Burkholder

A little Madness in the Spring Is wholesome even for the King.
— Emily Dickenson

There is a lot of things to discuss today so follow along carefully. One of our goals here at King's Homestead is to encourage you to join us in our community events. Lancaster County is not a huge area and we have lots of exciting town and city events but we are talking about the events in the country that the locals and home grown Lancaster county people like to go to. The number one and number two places are listing today and are completely opposite.

First off we have The Gordonville Mud Sale. I remember going to this sale with my best friend as a little girl and helping out with the kitchen work. My memories include tons and tons of people, lots of really good food, and yes, lots of mud. It is called the Mud Sale for a reason. I'm going to link the article here, because it is their 50th anniversary this year! Congratulations, Gordonville, for being the first in your class!

Second of all we have The Sight and Sound Theatre. Any and all local business owners are encouraged by S&S to attend all the shows so we can share with visitors how great they are. Would i go see the new show? Yes! "Jesus" is coming to town! This show is going to be epic and will speak to your heart, and I'm excited to see it. Follow the link below to see more information about Sight and Sound and all that they have to offer.

 Did you know the Homestead stocked three kinds of real eucalyptus this year? Also real dried lavender!

One more thing. We have outdoor furniture called Polywood Furniture. It comes in all shapes and sizes and colors and if your thinking of purchasing a set from us NOW is the time to do it. Our turn around time is light years faster right now than it will be later in the year. A tip for you and a link to check it out!

Wintertime updates

Diane Burkholder

Hey everyone! We are excited to show you a little bit of what has been going on here at the homestead. First of all, Anita, has been away shopping for the past week. While she has been gone, she has left a long list of chores for the painters to complete before she gets back! Don't worry, they will still be painting when she gets back, but it is starting to look really great in the showroom! They have mostly been repainting the ceiling white but also some of the walls are getting a good going over.
