Holiday Tips

Holiday Decorating Ideas
from Christine Haught, Ltd. Interior Design           
  • Start Early:  Begin now to envision what you want your holidays to LOOK like.  If nothing else, it is a good way to fall asleep at night.  It'll be better than counting sheep! 
  •  One Bite at a time:  Don't put too much pressure on yourself.  Have fun & get into the creative mode!  "There's always tomorrow."      -Bill Withers, Lean on Me
  • Mark your calendar:  Write down what you are doing and when.  I love a dry erase kitchen number....
  • Take Inventory:  Begin to figure out what you have and what you might need.  How many place settings will there be?  Do you have enough serving pieces?  A pie server?
  • Snooze:  Be sure to go to bed and get the right amount of sleep to stay healthy!
  •  Organize:  I suggest color coded bins for each holiday.  Black and orange for Halloween, etc. 
  •  It is Cardio:  All of those trips to the attic or basement are pre-burning your holiday calories!
  • Plan an event:  Why not host a Thanksgiving morning 11-2 neighborhood open house?  Tell your friends to bring an instrument!  It will be a reason to clean and decorate the house and a good way to catch up with neighbors you probably never see!  
  •  Sparkle:  Relax and enjoy your shining home!  
  • Don't be afraid to call in a professional ... Let someone else just do it! 
Celebrating 15 years in business!
