Today brought another trip to Hershey to pick up a donation from the Hotel Hershey for the Historical Society of Dauphin County's silent auction this Friday night.

There is not much to tell about the trip, but I did see some wonderful sights there at the hotel, and I want to share them with you. It's become quite a place in the last few years, with a spa, new restaurants, and guest cottages.

They also have a number of shops, one of which features items for the home, and another with beverages and baked goods.

Ok, food first. That's what we're all here for, right?
These are red velvet mini cupcakes.

Mile-high pink icing on cupcakes.

Chocolate cupcakes with a twig? 
Maybe the woodchipper was broken.

Killer confection, name unknown.

Cupcakes are the theme -- here are 
charms in cupcake papers.

A lovely flower arrangement in the corridor.

This one was in the main lobby.

One of the shops carried colorful 
Italian ceramics.

I thought these candles imitating spring bulbs were cool.

Tulips and pansies live in harmony in all
of the flower beds leading to the
main hotel entrance.

Yellow tulips.

Now you can see the pansies.

These burnt orange tulips were first in line.

The Hotel is part of the National Trust for Historic
Preservation's Historic Hotels program.

Purple pansies stand in for faded tulips right near 
the front door to the hotel.
