When you get the memo that you will be hosting the family
holidays this year in Newport, don’t stress about it. As a million questions run through your
mind and the unknown of how you’ll get everything done emerges, we are here to tell you that it can be a simple and organized
Regardless of whether you are
having five or 50 people over for the holidays, these
tips will help ensure your celebrations are safe and enjoyable for
all—even you, the host!
- A storage-packed island will provide maximum space in the most important room during
the holidays—the kitchen. Everyone can help chop up veggies, cook up a storm
and utilize pull out counter tops for hot dishes.
After a full day of cooking, a kitchen island with hidden nooks and crannies makes clean up simple so you have more time for the good stuff.
- The holidays are a great time for you to dress up your fireplace with up-to-date design trends. It’s
common for families to gather around the fireplace, and having yours well
decorated will make for a festive and inviting space. Whether you want a television or
various decorations hung above the mantel, the possibilities to add a personal
touch are everywhere.
- Now is a great time to call in the professionals at Pella Windows and Doors in
Newport to insulate and seal your windows. Keep your guests
warm in those rooms you rarely use. Reduce the chilly drafts by adding insulation,
or even replacement
to make sure everyone has a warm and jolly holiday.
- The winter months are the
perfect time to add a little life to your décor. Through such a cold season in Newport, you might
struggle to find vibrant colors other than your friend’s ugly Christmas sweater or Grandma’s
cookie frosting. Get creative with indoor plants and flowers —this
will add some life and is a great outlet for a craft day.
- Whether you need a kids’ table or just need extra chairs,
make sure to provide enough easy seating and places to
your guests. Don’t forget about a cozy spot
to settle after a big Thanksgiving dinner, either.
- Let’s be real, holiday food is the best. Touch up on your home, but also fine-tune
your favorite recipes. When your food matches the beauty of your kitchen, your guests will want to come back to the best
kitchen in Newport every year. If you don’t like cooking, have a little fun looking for
festive plates to put tasty treats on.
- Before the holidays is
the perfect time to check or install your smoke alarms.
With all of the holiday madness going on, it is easy to be forgetful. No matter how great of a cook you are, sometimes things
go wrong in the kitchen—it is better to be prepared and keep your guests safe.
- While they may not get much use throughout the year, dining rooms finally get the action they deserve around the
holidays. Whether you’re gearing toward elegant or festive,
there are infinite up-to-date design options you can take advantage of. Add anything
from a grouping of candles to a bowl of pinecones to bring attention to the
center of the table as a wintry statement piece.
- With bay windows you can take advantage of endless possibilities to expand your
space and utilize a nook. Make use of your
untouched space and add tables, chairs or even a bench
with extra storage. Make this a special space for your family to enjoy the holidays,
and spend time together throughout the year.
no matter how many projects you can fit in
before the holidays, only do what
you can and still make time with your loved ones. Any projects you complete will
make your house more inviting. There isn’t a better time to feel at home in
Newport than the holidays. Toss in some comfy throw pillows and enjoy.
