One of my favorite parts about the holiday season is picking a real Christmas tree. It’s festive and traditional, and the pine scent it leaves around home instantly makes me happy. There are plenty of places around the Philadelphia region where you can pick up live trees and wreaths, but I stumbled upon this perfect lot at the Lemon Hill Mansion. From the sprawling hilltop, you can see the Philadelphia skyline on one side, the Schuylkill River on another, and the historic mansion built in 1799.

Other great options include:
Linvilla Orchards | Media, PA (also my favorite place to pick apples in the fall)
Bustard’s Christmas Trees | Lansdale, PA
Marsh Creek Tree Farms | Elverson, PA
Willard Family Christmas Trees | Newtown, PA – Washington Crossing, PA – Columbus, NJ – Hamilton, NJ
Terrain | Glen Mills, PA (for baby tabletop firs, garlands, wreaths)

PHILLY BUCKET LIST: LITTLE SPOON CAFÉ


Little Spoon Café
1500 South Street, South Street West

What I Got: Vietnamese Iced Coffee and Kale with Chicken Salad

What I Thought: I love Vietnamese iced coffee. This did not disappoint (also because it’s served in a mason jar, and anyone who knows me understands how much I love them).  As far as the salad, HUGE portions. I could split it into two meals. The interior vibes are cozy and cute; you will want to make a reservation on a weekend.

What I Want: Also recommended by others are the shakshuka (baked eggs in spicy pepper tomato sauce) and cheddar chive pancakes. If you’re into drinks, they also offer BYO mimosas, Bloody Marys, and bellinis (you bring the alcohol, they provide the rest).

I’d love to hear the places I should try next! Shoot me an e-mail: anitaohblog@gmail.com.
