Doing the Deed...

Get ready friends...lots to unpack today and let you in on. 

Starting with "doing the deed".   Jana and I started putting up Christmas Trees in the shop today.  So, so much to do these next couple weeks.  If you've been around for awhile you know that I really, really dislike Christmas trees in October because October is my very favorite month.  I love everything about it and I want to enjoy it!  But alas, the trees must go up.  Otherwise, there just isn't enough time to get everything done in time for our Holiday Open House. 

I've been so stressed and just not sure what to do about our Holiday Open House this year.  How do you promote an event that historically packs your shop to the gills during a pandemic?  But also, how do you NOT have the event when it's one of your biggest sales events of the year?

We think we've come up with the perfect plan.  We pray it "lightens your heart" and helps you get into the Holiday Spirit.
Here's what you need to know...

The Open House will span 3 days, Thurs. Nov 5th thru Sat Nov 7th.   

We've expanded our hours on those three days and to avoid overcrowding in the shop we've created a ticketed event.

Tickets will be $10 (
but upon arrival you will receive a coupon good for $10, your ENTIRE TICKET price to be redeemed on any purchase at Plume during the Open House, $10 and up.)


Each ticket holder will receive...45 Minutes of safe, crowd free shopping AND a goody bag with an individually boxed cupcake, a GOPO favor bag of popcorn, and entry into our Grand Prize Giveaway.


We're thrilled to welcome back Local Author Jill Orr from 1pm to 5pm, all three days of the Open House for a Meet & Greet and SNEAK PEAK of her new book, How Not to Get Old.  You guys, it's so adorable and funny.  It's the perfect gift book for family and friends who might be entering a new "phase" of life.   Our ticketed spots go from 9AM to 6PM so make sure if you specifically want to see Jill, to grab a ticket between 1PM and 4PM, because she'll head out at 5PM each day.

Ticketed time slots will be 45 minutes, beginning every hour from 9am til 6PM.   Sign up for the time you want to attend.  There are tons of time slots available.   You may arrive anytime during your 45 minute time slot, but we will ask you to exit at the end of your time, regardless of your arrival time.   

We'll spend 15 minutes cleaning and sanitizing our high touch areas before the next group enters.    Guests will enter through the Gathering Room and exit through the main entrance.   

We will be safe and we will have THE MOST FUN!

In the meantime...let's get back to Halloween!  

Super excited to launch these DIY Halloween Cookie Decorating Kits with Laurel from Kiss Me Cookies this week.  

Halloween will likely look different this year.  If you aren't comfortable with your kids doing traditional trick o' treating, we hope these DIY Halloween Sugar Cookie Decorating Kits bring a bit of fun into your home, safely.  Baked right in our Bake Shoppe by Laurel Harlan of Kiss Me Cookies, each kit contains 9 individually wrapped (and DELICIOUS) sugar cookies; 3 each of 3 different designs, as well as 4 colors of royal icing and 3 kinds of sprinkles.  Laurel provides decorative inspirational photographs and basic instructions for a fun filled day in your own home.   Kits are available for pick-up at Plume beginning TODAY Tuesday October 13th.  Limited Quantities available so order yours now!  No Shipping Available.

We're working hard on new inventory from our makers this week.  Holiday items have started to come in, and we'll be putting it out over the next few weeks but still lots of great fall items and also a new bit of Black & Gold gear to celebrate the big MIZZOU win over LSU this past weekend. 

  You can shop that collection HERE.

AND....More exciting news from our Bake Shoppe.  We welcomed Wishflour Bakery and Marcey's amazing cookies and other treats last week.   They are To Die For! 

Don't forget Boss's Day this Friday! 

Cookie platters would be a great way to celebrate your boss (or cupcakesgourmet popcorn & macarons for that matter!)  Can't go wrong with edible gifts!   
We'd love to help you this week!
