Easy Holiday Party Tips and Ideas

Categories: Auburn AL, DanRic News, Design Tips, Holidays, Special Occasions, Things to Do | Posted: December 13, 2011 | Comments Off on Easy Holiday Party Tips and Ideas

What a better way to show off your new home in Auburn, AL than by hosting a holiday party? Don’t worry, no need to spend the rest of your furniture budget on caviar and champagne. Your friends will come because they want to see your new place and they’ll be impressed because of the thought you put into your gathering, not the money.

Here are a few ideas to jazz up the ordinary and help make an impression without spending a fortune:

Fill glass votives with a dollop of dip and place in a couple of carrot sticks, cucumber or zucchini slices on the rim (like lemon) and you’ve got cocktail veggies! If you don’t have enough glass votives, consider juice glasses or even the clear plastic ones.

Use martini glasses for green salads, fruit, soup or even loaded mashed potatoes. It’s simple to carry around, easily holds your spoon or fork and just feels elegant!

If you’re providing drinks, look for a festive cocktail or punch recipe to feature rather than endless options. It will stretch your beverage budget but still offer the spirit you’re looking for to celebrate in your new home in Auburn, AL.

Buying paper and plastic often add to the cost of your party, all the while cheapening the atmosphere. Don’t worry about matching dinnerware; pull out everything you have and mix and match. You can even ask a close friend to bring extra plates or glasses if you’re a few short. This works especially great if you’re keeping with passed hors d’oeuvres or a buffet style.

Maybe you’re still looking for a festive holiday theme or creative way to celebrate with friends in your new home in Auburn, AL? Choose from these theme ideas and your friends will be talking about your get-together well into the New Year:

Pinterest Party – Every guest brings the materials or ingredients for an idea they’ve found on Pinterest and you spend the evening creating them together. From cocktails to crafts & desserts, if you have an assortment there’s no way this party won’t be great.

Rockin’ around the Christmas Tree Party – everyone comes dressed as a rock star and karaoke can only make this party better!

Tacky Christmas Sweater Party – wear the tackiest Christmas sweater you can find complete with accessories, elf shoes and definitely a group photo.

Just remember, your friends will enjoy spending time together to celebrate the season. Whether you go all out or stick with wine and cheese, opening your new home in Auburn, AL to host friends and family will be a memory you’ll have forever!

Holiday Travel Tips

Categories: Auburn AL, Design Tips, Holidays, LaGrange GA, Special Occasions | Posted: November 27, 2011 | Comments Off on Holiday Travel Tips

Ease the stress of holiday travel this year by making a list and checking it twice! While you’re at it why not make a list of all the things you’re looking for in homes for sale in LaGrange, GA. DanRic Homes will make checking off that list easy with their attractive, affordable homes built with the latest amenities and modern features. Here are tips to ease your Holiday Travel and for that other list, come take a tour!

Be Flexible It is a luxury to have flexibility this time of year but traveling one or two days off from your plan may save you a bundle and reduce the crowd you’ll be fighting for elbow space. If you can travel during “dead weeks” in between the holidays when prices are significantly lower, you can save time as well as money by savoring a turkey dinner and opening gifts all at once!

Consider Smaller Airports The payoff is likely to be much greater than the extra distance the airport may be from your final destination. Smaller airports generally see fewer delays and fewer people which means less competition when it comes to parking, rental vehicles, nearby hotels and traffic getting in and out.

Book Early Flights, accommodations, and rental cars will sell out quickly in the holiday season. Reserve yours well in advance for the best selection!

Ship Gifts Allow plenty of time for arrival since the holidays can be hectic for delivery services too. If you do not send your gifts ahead, pack collapsible bags to wrap in once you arrive. Nicely packaged gifts will not travel well by air and the bright colors & bows seen through the windows of your car could be bait for holiday mischief.

The Extras Be sure you’re traveling with a car charger for your phone, snacks and extra batteries for the portable DVD player or game system. Don’t forget to take your photos of the homes for sale in LaGrange, GA you’ve been touring. Your family and friends will love being a part of your search for a new home!

Think Ahead Be prepared for inclement weather if you’re traveling by car. Take your car in for a tune-up, store jumper cables and blankets in your trunk and don’t remove the spare tire to make room for luggage. If you’re traveling by air, check the TSA luggage restrictions, check-in online or early, allow for extra time in traveling to and from the airport as well as making it through security check points.

Secure Your Home There are ready-to-move-in homes for sale in LaGrange, GA but let’s not leave yours looking vacant! Leave your home with that lived-in look by leaving on a light or two and having a neighbor collect your mail. You may not want to broadcast on your answering machine or facebook wall that you’ll be out of town for a few days.

Pass the Potatoes Whether you’re going home for the holidays or taking a merry vacation, be sure to include this in your list and enjoy spending time with those you love!

Chic Dining Room Designs and Styles

Categories: Auburn AL, DanRic News, Design Tips, Design Trends, DIY Tips & Tricks, Opelika AL | Posted: November 7, 2011 | Comments Off on Chic Dining Room Designs and Styles

Forget the days of your dining room being a space holder in your house. If you only use this space for occasional dinner guests or wrapping Christmas gifts, it’s time for transformation! Better yet, pack away that old dining room all together and unwrap your new style in one of Danric Homeshouses for sale in LaGrange, GA.

To create a chic dining room in your home consider updates and customization in four main categories; Walls, Lighting, Seating, and Décor. Here are a few tips on getting started:

Walls: You don’t have to paint your entire room, add a custom stencil in the middle of one wall, your ceiling or inside a frame. Use leftover paint from another room to add a horizontal stripe or an accent wall. If you are moving in one of our new houses for sale in LaGrange, GA, choose your paint colors in our Design Studio. Believe it or not, wallpaper is trendy again! Find wallpaper that reflects your personal style with damask print or unique graphics.

Lighting: This can be a one-step way to dramatically change the style in your room. Placing an eye-catching chandelier, adding modern, industrial style fixtures or simply attaching ribbon to an existing drum shade can transform your dining room from stagnant to stylish overnight! Consider this while touring houses for sale in LaGrange, GA. Newer homes may have the updated look you’re after without any additional work needed!

Seating: Here’s your chance to recreate the ambiance of your favorite café or classy bistro…and it doesn’t have to be expensive! Bring in that color or print you’ve been admiring with fabric by adding slip covers, accent pillows, or recovering seat cushions. Your chairs do not even need to match; paint mix and match seating with the same color, add a bench, or wingback chair. Eclectic, cozy seating can create a room you can’t wait to dine in!

Décor: The trend now ranges from larger-than-life to sleek and trim. That being said, you’ve got room to play! Try oversized prints, frames, and mirrors with sleeker center pieces like tea lights, votives, or miniature glass vases with single-stem flowers.  This is also a great opportunity to display things you love like your dishes, a treasured collection or original artwork. Display them in odd numbers like 3, 5, or 7. Turn empty shelves, bare buffets or vast wall space into the center of attention.

Maybe you are looking at houses for sale in LaGrange, GA or perhaps you are just staring into your own abandoned dining room. Either way, the tips above will help you create the perfect, chic room you’ll return to time and again. Come visit our homes and see what new design features Danric Homes has to offer.

Decorate for Halloween

Categories: Auburn AL, Community Events, Holidays, Montgomery AL, Opelika AL, Special Occasions | Posted: October 24, 2011 | Comments Off on Decorate for Halloween

Fall is easily one of the coziest seasons of the year. The air is crisp, and so are the leaves. With Halloween approaching, celebrating autumn has never been easier. Here are some fantastic ways to make your LaGrange GA homes for sale frightfully spooky this Halloween!

Take an afternoon and pick out a few squash, dried Indian corn, and pumpkins. Squash make a fantastic table centerpiece, and Indian corn can help fall. When you go to pick up pumpkins, find a variety of sizes and colors. Instead of carving your pumpkins, you can paint them instead. Especially if you picked up some white pumpkins, you can paint faces on them to make them look simply ghostly.

When carving pumpkins, try to make yourself a paper stencil or template first and trace it onto your pumpkin. This way, when you’re cutting with a blade or exacto knife, you know exactly where you’ll be cutting. Be sure to mark which areas should be cut out and which must remain intact for very detailed designs.

Seasonal throw pillows are also an easy way to dress up your LaGrange GA homes for sale for Halloween. Buy or make yourself some felt pillows. Then, cut out some bats or other spooky designs and sew or glue them onto the pillows. If you want, you could instead glue Velcro on the backs of your designs and change them out for each season so you always have the perfect decorations out for each season!

Fall wreaths or garlands are also incredibly easy ways to spruce up your home for the season! Pick out felt in your favorite fall colors. Beautiful golden yellows, reds, and oranges, and cut them into different leaf shapes. Using twine and hay, you can weave yourself a colorful wreath or garland and then glue the “stems” of your leaves into the mix for a beautiful autumn spread. With protective spray, you can weatherproof the wreaths for outside use if you choose to hang them outside of your LaGrange GA homes for sale.

Pumpkin flesh can also be etched to give your pumpkin a luminescent look when it comes time to light a candle inside. As long as your pumpkin is properly vented to give the flame enough air and the flame isn’t burning the inside of the pumpkin, you can make pumpkin luminaries as well as jackolanterns.
