Twas Two Weeks Before Christmas

Twas 2 weeks before Christmas + all in our midst,
Is the joy of the season mixed with fear of the “lists”.
The lights for the house sit by the front door,
The Christmas tree stands waiting for décor.
The mantle is cleared but no garlands in sight,
The stockings aren’t hung cause the hooks are not right!
The night to bake cookies seems to be on hold,
And the egg nog is sour cause it wasn’t kept cold.
And there’s no gifts to wrap cause they haven’t been bought
Although you are scrambling there’s less time than you thought!
When what to your wondering ears should you hear? Take Five’s solution to the lists of the year!

Don’t rush + don’t panic just don’t make it hard.
The lights for the house can be used in your yard,
A bauble or two will dress up your tree,
Glowing candles for the mantle is perfect – you’ll see!
The stockings can sit by the hearth near the wall,
As we make your list simple you’ll note, that’s not all!
Take Five has the cookies for sale – you’ll be thrilled!
And the egg nogs in lattes – which are hot + not chilled.
And the best tip of all if gift buying is hard?
Come visit Take Five for a simple Gift Card!
We can hear you exclaim + for good reason,
Merry Christmas to all! Your list is done for the season!

Eggstra Company over the Easter Holiday?

We know you love them….the family + friends that come visit during holidays. But are you prepared for them? After prepping the guest room, buying the groceries + making the space, did you find time to bake? There is nothing more welcoming than a plate full of goodies – or as the Easter Bunny prefers:  a basket!  We have oodles of tantalizing desserts + squares that are available by the piece+ they are so big, they are easy to share! Some of our favourites include… (more…)

Invite the Grinch to Steal Christmas

It’s been written in books + shown on the screen, the tale of the Grinch, + how he’s so mean….

A miserable sort who does his right best, to take joy + love from all of the rest.

 

But as good stories go, ones with a good end, we’re shown how he goes from evil to friend,

How he takes from the Who’s to ruin their day, only to find Christmas comes anyway.

 

We all have that person, the Grinch in our mist, who seems to display all black marks on the list.

Perhaps, as the story, there’s more to their tale, perhaps there’s a soft side that needs to unveil.

 

This message is simple – beat the Grinch with a smile, spend time if you can – go the extra mile.

A box of your cookies, an invite for tea – show them they matter, give kindness for free.

 

No need to avoid them, keep them in sight, give them attention – perhaps an invite!

They can’t steal your Christmas – you saw the show!  They can’t steal a thing, here’s how we know:

 

‘Tis the season for giving, you’ve all heard the quote, but we’re not talking “things”, here’s what the Grinch wrote:

“Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!”

Halloween has Gone Hollywood!

Back in the day – how far back I won’t say,
Halloween was recognized just for the day.
Your entrance might sport a pumpkin or two,
children in costumes calling out “boo”.
The odd firecracker lit for a very small crowd –
back in the day, Halloween wasn’t this loud.
Now it’s evolved like a Hollywood show:
Webs + witches all propped in a row.
Skeletons haunt the houses like ghosts,
black birds are neatly stapled to posts,
spiders displayed in all shapes + size,
batteries make the odd prop to rise.
There are objects in windows + pirates galore,
scary heads propped on tables – much gore!
So much has changed that it’s funny to say,
what’s missing from all this Halloween display?
What don’t you see so much anymore?
A pumpkin all lit, by the front door!
What’s better? Who knows? Halloween is a treat –
a chance where fun + creativity meet.
If you can’t beat them, join them, is what they all say.
So we have, and made our own treat to display.
Visit + buy some Halloween fun, next time you are on your coffee run.
Our cookie is cute, with webbing so neat,
it is our take on a seasonal treat.
Happy Halloween!

Perfect Picnic Planning

If you’ve ever planned a picnic you know that things can quickly get out of hand….A simple lunch can easily escalate. It’s the options that get in the way. You bring blankets AND chairs to provide a choice for seating. A simple deck of cards isn’t enough so your bring badminton + Frisbees so the family can pick + choose. Weather considerations get in the way, so sweaters, hats, sunscreens are added…..with a bottle of bug repellent, an umbrella and a tarp…just in case. And then there’s the food! Catering to every family member’s favourites – the different types of panini…one wants white bread and the other whole wheat. Your youngest prefers berries, while the others like melon. Some desserts just don’t travel well, while others need a fridge – so here come the coolers, the ice bags and the BBQ? Napkins, + more, are you tired yet?

It’s time to simplify. Grab a blanket and stop into your nearest Take Five Café. We have an assortment of wraps + panini on all kinds of breads. Salads are crisp, washed + ready! Our fruit cups have something in them for everyone; the desserts are sold as singles so every family member has a choice! There are lots of beverages to choose from + coffee concoctions can be taken to go! At Take Five Café we have everything you need for a stress free picnic – except the blanket! Find your nearest Take Five Café and enjoy dining al fresco today.

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Goodnight!

In this day and age of wanting “more”,
The meaning of Christmas has gone out the door.
So busy with shopping + buying more stuff,
We’re forgetting to know when enough is enough!
So our message is simple, take note if you will:
Don’t stress about gifts or whose stocking to fill.
Spend time with your loved ones whoever they be –
There are light shows to visit + Santa to see!
There are Christmas displays set up in the city,
The lights at VanDusen are really quite pretty.
Enjoy snow on the mountains, or ice skate at the square –
Enjoy a hot chocolate at a Christmas craft fair.
It really doesn’t matter what events that you choose,
When gifting your time, you have nothing to lose.
This season remember the most important part,
Is that you spend time with others – a gift from your heart.
