Are you a proud new owner of a Craftmark home? Spending your first holiday season in a new home is an extraordinary experience, almost like “breaking it in” for your family. Here are a few suggestions that will put you on track to have the best celebration possible in your new home.
Start a Brand-New Tradition
The holidays are all about tradition and what better way to cherish that than to start a new tradition in your new home? You could spend an evening caroling throughout the terrific neighborhoods of your Craftmark Homes community or visit a local tree farm and find the perfect tree for your gorgeous living room. If you’re a baker, use your home’s luxurious kitchen and have friends and family over for a Christmas cookie baking session!
Get New Decorations
A new home means a chance to change up your look! Step outside your comfort zone and refresh your holiday decorating scheme. Consider some tasteful outdoor lights – kids and adults alike love driving down a road filled with lit-up homes. They put everyone in a magical holiday mood, and are low-stress with timers and energy-efficient options.
Try New Recipes
We’re not saying you shouldn’t make your grandma’s famous recipes over the holidays, but we do recommend taking some time to try something new. Our homes have exceptional kitchens that make cooking and baking a breeze. Try looking into your family’s heritage and making some authentic holiday recipes. You might find new dishes that everyone will love. It’s a fantastic way to connect your family with their history while chowing down on delectable treats. A total win-win.
Throw Open the Doors and Host
If you’ve never hosted family for the holidays, now is the perfect time to start! While hosting dinner for extended family is a major responsibility, it can also be a fun and rewarding experience. Luckily, if you’re in a Craftmark Home, you can be assured that you’ll have the space to comfortably fit the whole family, and the kitchen necessary to feed them. When it comes to hosting for the holidays, don’t be afraid to offer your new Craftmark home as the place to be!
