We used to get roasted chestnuts in the streets - kind of like the nut carts in NYC, if you've seen those - when we walked around Bern, Switzerland when I was way young. Have you ever had roasted chestnuts? If not, you should definitely try them for the holidays. I made a tutorial on how to last year. Delicious, festive treat!
She also got & set up some really amazing flower trees. The red on these is incredible & they totally change the dynamic of the room. They also make me reaalllyyy in the mood for the holidays. Nice finds, Mom!
