It’s the height of summer! The weather is warm, the kids are on vacation and now it’s the Fourth of July! We love this holiday for a number of reasons. This year marks 241 years of the United States of America declaring independence and it’s a day to remember our country’s history and celebrate.
It’s Saturday night. The movie went a little late. Your out-of-town friend doesn’t look awake enough for the hour-long drive back home. What do you do?
If you’re halfway prepared, you might have an air mattress or sleeping bag lying around. But, if you’ve really thought ahead, you’ll be pulling out the plush mattress in your living room’s sleeper sofa. Your weary friend will fall into a comfortable bed and sleep so soundly that they’ll want to come visit more often. All because you bought a sleeper sofa. Keep reading to find out how to choose the best sleeper sofa for your living space.
Is there any other holiday that elicits such strong feelings as Valentine’s Day? Many people seem to fall very firmly on the heart-eyes emoji side or on the crossed-arms emoji side. If you are part of the latter group and feel it’s time to take your antipathy to the star-crossed holiday to a new level, then this may be the year you throw an anti-Valentine’s Day party!
So, you’re thinking about hosting your first friendsgiving this year. Well, buckle up because this isn’t your granny’s Thanksgiving. This is friendsgiving! It’s a time to kick back and spend quality time with your honorary “family” in a fun, laid back environment.
To properly show how to host a friendsgiving, we teamed up with one of our visual designers, Brandon Roush. Below, he shares décor advice, nametag ideas and tips on preparing for your first friendsgiving.
Remember the kids’ table? You know, the little dining setup segregated from your “adulting” family. Whether it was a small, round dining table http://www.homemakers.com/kitchen-and-dining-tables/ or a pullout card table, almost everyone has experienced this seating arrangement, complete with waterproof tablecloth and paper napkins.
If you’re reading this post, we’re assuming you’ve now graduated to the adult table. Which means at mealtime, you understand the kids that need something more to look forward to than Uncle Phil’s casserole.
To help out, we talked to our senior visual designer, Brandon Roush. He shared tips on fashionable and fun Easter kids’ table decorations, like using a black sharpie to write names on terracotta pots and filling them with crayons for fun placeholders.
