A ‘Night on the Town’ begins December 2. Retail shops will stay open late while local choir groups will serenade, and dance groups and clubs will entertain all visitors.

'Tis the season for homes decked out in their holiday best…looking all warm and cozy and ready for welcoming family and friends. Christmas decorating comes in all shapes and sizes, textures, and colors and has no boundaries as it comes down to your personal tastes. While many people tend to lean towards the reds and greens, the beauty of white, silver, gold, and blues adds just as much charm and seasonal glow to a home. Let your creativity bloom when decorating your home and let it be a reflection of who you are!
If you’re looking for a few pointers on getting started, here are some things to consider:
1. Will this space be used for entertaining? Remember to create ample space for your guests among the decorated areas.
2. If you’ll be serving food and drinks, create a space in the room to accommodate an easy access point for guests to come and go.
3. Measure the size of the room you are decorating, taking into consideration the windows and doorways.
