Win­dow won­der in Red­lynch patis­serie

The Weekend Post - - News - PETER CAR­RUTHERS

JENNY Lewis-Jones not only loves Christ­mas, she loves cre­at­ing what has be­come one of the best fes­tive sea­son shop win­dows in Far North Queens­land.

For Ms Lewis-Jones Christ­mas was al­ways a big deal grow­ing up and she chan­nels her mum’s love of Christ­mas when cre­at­ing win­dow dec­o­ra­tions for her Red­lynch busi­ness, Orangerie Patis­serie.

“I love this time of the year. We have been here 10 years this year and I have al­ways done the shop up for Christ­mas ev­ery year,” she said.

“It’s just breath­tak­ing to see the kids’ faces, they love it. They come and stand at the front of the shop for ages just watch­ing all the things go around and light up.”

Ev­ery year Ms Lewis-Jones adds to the of­fer­ing, each Christ­mas the dis­play at the shop re­ally does get big­ger and bet­ter.

“It’s just beau­ti­ful, I have not seen any­thing in Cairns like it as far as shops go.”

Ms Lewis-Jones said some peo­ple just came to look and were sim­ply mes­merised by the dis­play.
