Tips For a Safe Thanksgiving

This year may look different than others, but you can still experience the fun and festive Thanksgiving you look forward to! With a few adjustments and safety precautions, this year’s holiday will feel just as warm and joyful as it always has. At Homes By Dickerson, we believe that connection is the key to a happier life — and we want you to share a happy (and safe) Thanksgiving with your loved ones from the comfort of your new home in North Carolina. Take a look at our helpful tips for making this year’s holiday just as special as the last.


Tips for a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving

 

Change Your Perspective: Change doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, if you look at the situation from a new perspective, you’ll be able to spot the silver linings, and most importantly, find time to relax and have a laugh. It may be hard to accept that a large gathering with family from out of town isn’t practical this year — but there are still so many fun and easy ways to safely connect with everyone while enjoying your normal traditions.

FamilyHost Dinner Outside: If you have family around your home in North Carolina, you may feel confident about the decision to have a small gathering. Get creative and have some fun serving dinner outside on your porch, patio, or deck. Space out chairs for added safety, and incorporate fun, mini hand sanitizers into your placemat displays. If you love a good DIY project, make family face masks!

Cook (Virtually) Together: Even if you can’t physically be together, you can still connect and cook with your loved ones. Set up a video call with your phone, computer, or iPad on your kitchen island, and prepare your meal as you normally would while enjoying the virtual company of family with your favorite music in the background. Once the meal’s ready, keep the video call going while you enjoy it!

Dive Into Decor: If you’re preparing to enjoy a quiet dinner at home, make plans to decorate your table as you typically would. This will make the holiday feel as “normal” as possible, while keeping you busy with something you enjoy doing. Plus, with fewer places at the table to set up, you can focus on a beautiful, intricate centerpiece that lets you get creative and do something different. 

Treat Yourself: Yes, this is just as important as anything else! Dealing with change is not always easy, even if it’s temporary. And we want you to know that you’ve done an incredible job adjusting to a new situation. This holiday, take the time to treat yourself, whether that means indulging in an extra slice of pumpkin pie or saving the dishes for later so you can cozy up on the couch to enjoy a Thanksgiving movie marathon. 

From all of us at Homes By Dickerson, we hope you have a happy and safe holiday!

Your Own Private Outdoor Oasis

Your Own Private Outdoor Oasis

At Homes By Dickerson, we believe that paradise is leaning back in a cozy chair with a cold drink on a sunny day. That’s why we build our spacious, energy-efficient homes with stylish outdoor living areas that provide the open space you need to spread out, get comfortable, and let the sunshine wash over you.

Outdoor Space.

 

No matter how you love to utilize outdoor spaces, from your screened-in porch and backyard to your light-filled sunroom, there are so many ways to maximize and decorate them to your heart’s content. Take a look at a few fun ideas to turn your peaceful, private outdoor area into an oasis:

 

Outdoor Design Ideas 

 

Throw Some Shade: Add a little flair (and much-appreciated shade) with a wide, sleek umbrella. If you love to throw dinner parties, choose an umbrella with LED lighting to create a warm, stylish glow during any soiree. 

 

Ready, Set, Grow: Give pops of color and life to your space with your favorite bright plants or flowers grown in trendy planters. In your container garden, play around with different planter designs and flower arrangements.

 

Fire pit.

Get Campy: Small, compact, and easy to use, a fire pit adds a nostalgic spark to your outdoor area. Rearrange your furniture around a fire pit for cozy nights under the stars (and s’mores with your kids, of course).

 

Let There Be Light: There are few things as comforting as the sight of string lights against a clear night sky. There are so many fun and stylish ways to illuminate your outdoor area into something magical! 

 

Accent Piece: A garden accent table adds a touch of chicness without overwhelming the other accessories. Whatever color or design floats your boat, your drinks are sure to look cool resting on it.

 

Outdoor kitchen.

Dinner Al Fresco: With an option to add a beautiful outdoor kitchen, you can finally enjoy your meals under the stars! Spacious enough for everyone, you and your family will love cooking and eating together outside.

 

Summer Love Letter: As guests come and go for gatherings outside, encourage them to write a message! Fun for your kids and their friends, a blackboard and chalk give your space a sweet, personal touch.

 

Relaxation Retreat: Want your own private space to meditate or practice yoga? Incorporate calming plants, wireless speakers, candles, a stylish rug, etc., and you finally have the luxurious retreat you deserve.

Sometimes, fresh air and sunshine are exactly what you need. So don’t wait to experience paradise in your own private outdoor oasis! For more information about our beautiful new homes throughout North and South Carolina, please contact us at 919-205-3404. We can’t wait to get started!

From all-new systems and cleaner air quality to superior features and open-concept design, a beautiful new home in North Carolina makes life easier and more enjoyable every day. Take a look at the advantages of The Home of Your Life vs. any used home you’ve seen before:

 

Kitchen.

Used home…

Waste time and energy cooking meals with old, unreliable appliances

New home…

A spacious chef’s station and eatery with all-new appliances that work beautifully

 

Used home…

Miss the fun of hosting friends and family because of the cramped barrier of walls

New home…

A cleaner and greener deluxe family suite where each open room flows into the other

 

Outdoor space.

Used home…

Not enough room outside to fully enjoy each season

A new home…

Your own peaceful and private natural oasis that brings the beauty of nature to the comfort of home

 

Bathroom.

Used home…

No way to feel pampered and relaxed, especially at the end of a long day

New home…

A spa-like sanctuary with a soaking tub, walk-in shower, and walk-in closet

 

Used home…

Not up to speed with what you need today and down the line

New home…

Brand new and expertly built to provide everyday paradise with comfort, luxury, and flexibility
