THE RED CHRISTMAS balls tucked into the pine boughs with sprigs of
holly berries were super cute and perfectly festive for the holiday season.
Which was exactly why Charli Carlson yanked them ruthlessly from the
window boxes that sat out front of the Bean Bag, Trickle Creek’s popular
cafe located in the bustling plaza. She dropped the decorations into the basket
at her feet until she once more had a blank slate.
Charli looked up to see Annie Darling, her friend and sister-in-law-to-be,

As soon as she’d seen them, she knew they’d look perfect in a January
display. Just the right amount of pop and shine to brighten up a snowy winter
day and draw attention to the cafe doors.
Outdoor arrangements were still
pretty new to her, but when Annie asked Charli if she’d be willing to do
something for the Christmas season, she jumped at the opportunity. The
winter season, when the tourists flocked to the ski hill, brought a lot of traffic
