LEVEL UP YOUR NEXT EVENT WITH PICNICS & BALLOONS...PLUS, PROMINENT BUILDING FOR SALE

HERE’S THE SCOOP…


GORGEOUS DISPLAYS FOR YOUR NEXT OCCASION


'Tis the season for partayys and we think you should elevate your celebrations this year. Glastonbury mom, Christelle Abboud from Picnics & Balloons has a knack for leveling up spaces with some perfect party decor. It all started in 2021 when she was decorating for her own daughter's birthday party and realized she could make it a business and have more flexibility to be home with her two small kids (the dream!). She offers full-service décor with backdrop rentals, custom vinyl decals, and marquee letters/numbers. It's a family affair...she can customize any event prop requested ahead of time because her husband builds the wooden backdrops. If you're simply looking for balloon bouquets or garland, she also offers local pickup from her location at 2389 Main Street Glastonbury. Christelle and her husband have only been in town three years but have grown to love all the local coffee shops, parks, and wineries. FUN FACT: Christelle is part Greek, Lebanese, and Armenian and speaks fluent Arabic and some French. Find her and all of her cool creations HERE to book for your next event!




PROMINENT BUILDING SALE


The commercial building next to Patty Cake's recently went up for sale. 225-229 Hebron Avenue currently houses TAPAS and an empty space. That space was previously a smoke shop and convenience store. The building is listed at $699,900. We are really hoping someone will buy and give it some LOVE! Photos below or click HERE to see the full listing.




UPDATE ON NEW RESTAURANT TO OLD MAX AMORE SPACE


We are getting a lot of questions about whether or not PITA is still coming to The Shops at Somerset Square. This is the Mediterranean-style restaurant that is set to open in the old Max Amore space by the owners of The Place 2 Be. Here is what we know so far: The Statement Group says they submitted plans to the town for a buildout back in the fall. And, Somerset management has issued the following statement to us: "The Shops at Somerset Square is eagerly awaiting the arrival of PITA to join the property and its successful retail, restaurant and office tenants; opening in the coming months." We will keep you posted if we hear more.
