Swansons Nursery has Scandinavian roots and so do two of our veteran employees: Inger and Rolf. Both of whom have been with us over decades and have helped shaped Swansons to be the warm and welcoming place it is today. As the holidays approach, we would like to share the stories of their Christmas traditions. God Jul!
Saturday night was our annual Holiday Party, a night of socializing, shopping, toasting the upcoming holiday season with wine and cider, and taking camel and reindeer selfies - usually after a glass or two ;) Check out our slideshow of party photos at the bottom of the post.
This year was even better because we were lucky to be able to partner with Whole Foods Market to throw a benefit event for the Ballard Food Bank. After our Summer Nights at Swansons events, which helped support both Ballard Food Bank and Whole Kids Foundation, it was a little like a reunion!
With our recent chilly temps and current dreary, grey drizzle, it feels like the perfect time to stay inside and cozy up with a mug of tea and a good book. With that in mind, I offer up a curated selection of Swansons' literary offerings, available in our conservatory gift shop. From cookbooks to gardening classics to gorgeous coffee table books, there are more than enough choices to while away the long rainy season.
