Blue Shutters....Decked for the Holidays

Here are  a few more holiday photos

Scenes from the Blue Shutters at Christmastime

We think the Blue Shutters looks great all year long, but it's especially beautiful at Christimastime.  Unfortunately, not many of you are here in December, so we're sharing a few photos here.  We hope this motivates you to come visit this month -- there are lots of holiday activities around Cape Ann.  And plenty of fun right here at the Shutters.

Blue Shutters Open House Gives Our Friends a "Taste of Latin America"

A big thanks to the family and friends who came to the Blue Shutters for today's Open House -- and to Mark Sapienza (for the food), Kathy Hill (for the wine) and the folks from Por Cristo for the bazaar we ran right in our Fireside room.  All those who came had a great time -- including the four-legged friends who rand the beach and then enjoyed our backyward while the humans partied inside.  All the money raised in the bazaar -- featuring items Por Cristo brought back from Ecuador -- went to support the work of this organization that helps children in that poor South American country with medicines, medical equipment and medical training. 

A Sneak Peek at Today's Open House

Our Taste of Latin America Open House kicks off in just a few minutes -- and our chef, Mark Sapienza, has prepared a great menu (that's him preparing the delights for last year's Open House).

Here's a sneak peek at what's in store this year:

Tortilla Chips with Guacamole and Pico de Gallo

Shrimp Ceviche – Citrus, Green, Cilantro and Cumin Popcorn

Tangerine Pork Carnitas and Queso Blanco Quesadilla

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake


A Final Few Tree-Trimming Photos....

Scenes from the Blue Shutters Tree-Trimming 2013

Here are just a few scenes from our annal Tree-Trimming.  Thanks for all the family, friends and neighbors who joined in an evening of fun and holiday cheer.  You can come see the Blue Shutters Christmas Tree anytime this holiday season -- but one of the best opportunities is our Taste of Latin America Open House, which takes place this afternoon starting at 2pm.
