Day 3 of Simsmas: Building ... Simsmas?!?

Your challenge for the day: Build build build…to not forget! Share with us something you built that reminds you of Simsmas.

This can be anything (as you can see from my example below) that reminds you of the holiday season!

    I've shown another version of this one in the other simsmas threads

    The aussie beachside farmhouse. I uploaded it if anyone is interested.

    Many of the rooms have fans, because at this time of the year you need them or a/c



    I also made a second Aussie location, this time it's a shack beside the sea. A lot of aussie families get together at similar style beach side 'holiday homes'. They're always somewhat ugly.

    I don't think I'll be joining this particular one. Nothing really reminds me of Christmas.

    I'll just wait for day 5.

    I built a room for the nursery rhyme "Little Jack Horner."
    Remember:

    "Little Jack Horner
    Sat in the corner,
    Eating a Christmas pie."

    Challenge accepted. Go big or go home.

    I built a restaurant. I named it Winter Retreat and it is built on a 40x20 lot in New Crest. My poor sims put on some pounds cause I sent them to the restaurant, had to fix some things for issues, then back to the restaurant ... needless to say, they all ate out a lot.

    vET3s0t.jpg
    I tried to imitate a snow covered look for the ground, so I used one of the cobblestones paint.

    iTDPSA3.jpg
    The outer porch area, a small outside bench, oversized Simstas tree. Originally had a miniature doll house underneath, but it was smashed and then everyone cried. Out with the dollhouse, in with a train car.

    i1FNzrR.jpg
    Top view of the outer restaurant. I wanted to make it look like present boxes with the odd colored walls and roof. More trees, more presents, a family of snowmen in the back and a whole herd of the various gnomes and nutcrackers and an escalation of one of the bird designs.

    gElNdXt.jpg
    View from the other rooftop.

    EBaa22K.jpg
    All of the gnome statues, nutcrackers and snowmen adorn the back part of the restaurant.

    JozMAOn.jpg
    The front entrance has some highback booth chairs for seating for extra sims, yet another tree, a wall of stuffed animals .... The host/hostess has outfits of gold, the wait staff are in green and the cooks are in red.

    9wRrLj7.jpg
    The original front entrance. I had to move one of the trees and the mini-snowman away from the host podium due to a routing issue and no one being able to request a table.

    0ikcMce.jpg
    Current front entrance. One of the trees moved back to the holiday table, the other still by the podium. Podium now fully functional.

    zYbncsT.jpg
    A wall of stuffed animals ... cause ... why not?

    0hPAurM.jpg
    The restaurant is actually divided in two. There is family dining in the front half with a bar and more of a romantic atmosphere in back. The sims have their party outfits on. It is the default attire for the restaurant.

    q3QwXNl.jpg
    A shot of the back with the bar and the corner booths. Random sims went to the bar first, ordered a drink. Drank it at the bar and then went to get a table to eat. I kinga liked having the bar get used that way. It was nice to see it be used.

    WdD6AEd.jpg
    Random NPC sim at the bar waiting for his drink.

    An inside shot of the mens restroom.

    39L3zLW.jpg
    And one of the ladies. Each restroom has three private toilet stalls areas.

    nHmxKKL.jpg
    I was so happy to see a celebrity be my waitress. She was there everytime my sims went to go eat. I actually laughed the first time I saw here there. I was hoping to see the rest of that family, but they never showed while I was working and tinkering with the build.

    HEUg4a5.jpg
    The restaurant works, so my sims got to eat .... and eat .... and eat some more.

    QguajLf.jpg
    Same group, different table, another day. There are two six seating tables, four two seating and then the 8 booths and the barstools.

    ztHSKab.jpg
    A shot of the tree that is in the back corner of the restaurant. All ready for presents underneath.

    ZZEDPjI.jpg
    I was sad. My toddler wasn't able to attend the restaurant and went to daycare. Where there is a will, there is a way. I was happy that my toddler could sit in the highchair at the end of the table and eat. While she couldn't eat food from the restaurant, her parents were able to give her food from their inventory.

    4Y974HE.jpg
    She even behaved herself in the restaurant.

    Fa1A1TY.jpg
    Another shot of the baby.

    I did have to change/move a few of the centerpieces on the tables. The wait staff were unable to put some of the platters down on the two-seat tables that had a mini-snowman for the centerpiece.

    I built an Elven Village, and though it isn't entirely Christmas themed, I included a summer home for Christmas elves!
