5 Ideas for Ladies Night Out in December

Research shows what we have always known - a ladies night out is good for the soul!  It comes as no surprise that doing things with friends reduces stress and improves happiness.  So it’s not a luxury to treat yourself to a night out with the girls - some consider it essential self-care.  We couldn’t agree more.

Fortunately, Elsie Kaye Glassworks has you covered.  We’ve got a variety of Girls Night Out options this holiday season, right here in Westborough, MA.

We’re stocking our shelves with new gifts each week, so come browse our selection - or just kick back and enjoy some live local music with your besties.  The best part is that it’s a free holiday event right here in Westborough, but we do ask that you register here.

Last Minute Gift Workshop - Thursday December 19  6-8pm

Ladies Night Out: Stacking Rings - Saturday December 28   5-7pm

Take your friendship to a new level by donning some goggles and using a torch together at this fun ring making class!  In this 2-hour workshop, you’ll learn basic metalsmithing and soldering techniques to create your own set of stacking rings.  We'll start with copper and sterling silver wire and teach you how to use flux, wire solder and a butane torch to create a fun and funky set of rings. Blow off some holiday steam with your friends and reserve your seats here.

There’s no better way to slow down from the holiday hustle and bustle than to plan an outing with your best girl friends. Whether it’s a group of ladies, a mother/daughter duo, or even just your sister - we have plenty of holiday events to come unwind and get crafty together.  Follow us on Facebook here to stay updated with new events and our 12 Days of Gift Giving!

Keep Your Kids Busy This Summer

It took a total of four days after the school year ended last week for my 10-year-old to utter those two little words all parents hate to hear.

You know, that phrase said in part frustration and part desperation, with a little defeat mixed in for good measure. “I’m bored!” You’re kidding right? Nope.  But we parents are ready, with our “toolbox” of clever suggestions.
