An Entertaining Place | Helping you turn your space into an Entertaining Place Menu Close Menu Skip to content Home About Us Shop our Store The Color-full Christmas Tree Posted on November 19, 2013 by entertainingplace The first few years of marriage, Christmas was visually beautiful – a formal setting of reds, golds and silvers, garnished with a velvet tree skirt, various glitzy ornaments, and presents that coordinated with the tree’s color scheme. Then, our family grew. The next few years, we survived with a half-decorated tree (the top half), quite a few broken ornaments, and only a few presents that hadn’t been ripped or peeked into. Our color scheme stayed pretty much the same, but I noticed it lacked the luster it had the previous years. Then came the day that my son took home the ornament that changed it all. It was a hot pink and white striped ribbon folded back and forth on a white pipe cleaner, held in place by hot pink beads. This ornament was the most hideous and the most adorable ornament I had ever seen! As a mom, I had an obligation to provide this ornament a front-place parking spot on our family tree, but as an artist with some OCD tendencies, I cringed every time I thought of the mismatched pink set against the red, gold and silver. I was shopping for Christmas presents when I found the solution – beautiful rainbow-colored candy canes. That hot pink was in there, as was blue, green, red, purple, yellow, and even orange! Who needs traditional colors? I can make this work! I grabbed a package of the candy canes, then hit up the local discount store and found a package of blue and green ball ornaments for a few dollars, a bundle of purple snowflake ornaments for a dollar, some cheap white icicle ornaments for a dollar, and a wide white ribbon with brightly colored candy on it. For less than $10, I was ready to tackle the redistribution of color on the tree. Instead of replacing all of my beautiful ornaments with these cheap ones, I added to what I had. The red and pink went better together than I thought! The ribbon pulled it all together, and it made the whole room seem more cheery. I even found some older home-made ornaments that I had stored (because they didn’t fit the formal mold in the previous years) that were great additions to the more casual theme. I was proud of how I found a way to feature my kids’ ornaments without sacrificing style. Now, no matter what Christmas crafty things my kids take home from school, they know it will get a featured spot on our family tree.

Here’s your how-to: Color scheme: Main color (walls): Slate blue Secondary color (accent wall or carpet): khaki/gold Accent colors: dark red & antique green Seating: A couch that is low-maintenance but still provides plenty of seating works well. Don’t forget to also have a chair or two for people to use between turns at the pool table. Entertainment: This pool table is great because it pulls in the dark red accent color, but it also provides hours of endless entertainment for the family and friends. A billiards accessories kit will include everything else you need for your pool table. It’s nice to have a TV to watch the big game, or for a family movie night. A dart board is another great method of entertainment. Classic games, like dominoes, checkers, backgammon, and chess, are also nice to have on hand for quieter entertainment. Snacking and Mini-bar: A pub table is great way to have furniture do double duty – snacking and board/card games. A snack bar or mini-bar could be a small refrigerator, a cabinet, or even a kitchen cart with shelves as the one shown above. Decor and Lighting: Bring in all the colors in the room together with a rug or a clock. Vintage signs can help tie in a theme or colors from your color scheme. For lighting, tie in some of the color scheme while still getting a classy, vintage look with a themed tiffany lamp. There are so many other options for decorating and creating a game room. This is just a simple list to get you started. Keep checking the blogs for more Transforming your Space inspiration. And feel free to suggest a type of room that you’d like to create – I’m up for a challenge!

They play poker. Most women don’t quite get it. There’s just something about the freshly cut cards, the stacks of chips, and the feel of a royal flush in hand that gets a man giddy. Whether it’s in a basement or in a garage, on an official poker table or a dining table – poker can be enjoyable for even the most competitive of men. Start with your space – If your space is in a basement or a garage, make sure the temperature is comfortable enough to play for extended periods of time. You might need a portable fan or heateron hand. Lighting - The best type of lighting for poker is a little ambient light in the room, and a hanging lamp in the center of the playing table. The vintage stained-glass lamps (tiffany lamps) come in all shapes, sizes, and even theme! Table – There are official poker tables that are super classy – these are best used in a nice finished room in a basement. Then there are poker table tops – something you put on top of your own table – this works great in a room that is also used as a family room or dining area. Finally, there is the folding poker table – this is a great way to keep poker night portable, whether it’s into the garage, or even to someone else’s house. Poker Chips – Official chips, movie-themed chips, generic chips…you can spend as little or as much as you would like on poker chips. We suggest the poker chips that come in the cool carrying case – a great way to store and transport them. Cards – the same issue here with cards – you can buy them at the gas station or grocery store, or you can buy the really nice ones – your choice. Bar – Poker usually goes hand-in-hand with drinking beer. For a classy bar, you could set up a small refrigerator or mini bar in the basement next to the poker table; chilled pilsner glasses are a nice touch. For a make-shift bar, you could use a metal bucket or bin to put beer in and cover with ice (or a cooler if you’re going casual). For the poker tournament nights, consider pulling a Toby Keith with red solo cups and a keg . Snacks - Absolute must haves for most poker nights – chips & salsa, cheese puffs (go great with beer!), pistachios or peanuts, and the pub mix that comes in a gigantic tube from Costco. Tunes - An iPod and a docking station with speakers is one of the best ways to pick a music theme and let it play. If you have surround sound in the room, all the more reason to enjoy your favorite songs! Some of the favorites for poker nights vary from upbeat country music to Southern rock (like “Sweet Home Alabama”); from Mumford & Sons to Metallica; from pop to jazz. Just don’t forget Lady Gaga “Poker Face,” or Frank Sinatra “Luck be a Lady”!

They drop the hint that hotels are really expensive. Whether it is out of obligation or genuine hospitality, you offer your guest room for a few nights. Of course, any time you open your home to someone overnight, you open a bag of unknowns – What time do they go to bed? Do they expect a large breakfast in the morning? Do they like hard or soft pillows? Do they shower at night or in the morning? Are they light or heavy sleepers? Here’s a few tips to make sure they are comfortable no matter what their expectations are: Have a set of firm pillows and a set of soft pillows in addition to the “pretty” pillows set up on the guest bed. You can get really inexpensive pillows - especially if they are rarely used except by guests. If there is not a ceiling fan in the room, make available a portable fanfor noise and air movement. If the room is in a basement, make sure there is a portable heater. It’s a special bonus to have a noise machine available. For a nice hospitable touch, leave a set of bath and hand towelsand extra blankets on the bed. If you have any recent magazines or good books that might be of interest to your guests, you could leave them by the bedside. Include a local newspaper if you get one. Make sure there is some room in the closet for your guests to hang clothes. An empty dresserdrawer or two is great if the guests are staying for more than a day or two. Write a personal a note to say welcome. You can include the wi-fi password, local radio channels, an abbreviated cable channel lineup, and a schedule that your family sticks to for meals and/or daily routine. If your guests have a vehicle, you could also leave a list of things to do and see in your community (or the nearest big city). If they don’t have a vehicle, you could print or draw a map of what’s within walking distance, even if it’s the big oak tree in the middle of the field that you can get to by following the creek – perfect spot to read in the afternoon. It’s always nice to leave a basket or bin as a welcome gift. Consider a pre-made games and candy basket, or create your own by putting some of the following items in a cute bin or basket: individually wrapped snacks (store-bought or homemade) bottled juice or pop bottled water hotel- or travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, soap, and toothpaste ear plugs (especially if someone in your fhome snores) ibuprofen or Tylenol a travel-sized Downy Wrinkle Releaser spray – trust me, your guests will love it. Important things to remember: Most of the time, if someone is staying in your home, they are fairly low-maintenance. If they wanted a huge breakfast buffet or little candies on their pillows, they would have stayed at a hotel. Most overnight guests are satisfied with a clean, comfortable bed, a simple breakfast, a warm shower, and great conversation. Don’t stress the small things – yes, it’s important to have a clean house when you are trying to impress someone, but overnight guests would much rather have you be comfortable when they visit. Having toys strewn across your kids’ bedrooms doesn’t mean you are a messy family – it means you have kids. Having breakfast dishes in the sink at 10 a.m. doesn’t mean that you are lazy – it means that you were able to feed and get the kids out of the house for school that morning before having to run to work. If you have to work while your guests are visiting, don’t feel guilty – most likely, they feel guilty for staying with you when you have other obligations. Just make sure they have contact information for you throughout the day, and give them some ideas of what to do during that time. This may seem like a lot to buy or prepare, but it’s only meant to inspire you to create a space that’s comfortable and welcoming for your guests. You don’t have to spend a lot of time or money – just be thoughtful and hospitable.

Depending on how old the members of the family are, the look of the Fam Cave can vary greatly. Families with older children might want a place where the kids can take their friends to hang out and play games. Families with younger children would probably prefer a cave with an area reserved for creating art and running around. Either way, the Fam Cave necessities remain the same: Theme: This can be anything! Casual/comfortable, fairy tales, movies, sports, even an underwater theme! Decorations can play as large of a part as you would like in creating and developing a theme for the Fam Cave. It doesn’t define the purpose of the space, but could help with your choices of furnishings and decor. Storage: Where there are kids, there is a mess waiting to happen. If you have the right storage, you also have a way to organize and hide away the mess. Ideally, you would have a closet with shelving, drawers, or cubbies. Labels are a brilliant way for kids to help their stuff find their way home. Games: From board games to cards, from gaming systems to billiards, a little competition can turn any room into an entertaining one! Lounging: Floor pillows, poufs, bean bags, couches, sectionals, and even futons and daybeds work well for a room like this. With younger kids, think leather or other easy-maintenance materials! Wiping up spills from cloth couches can be a real headache, and takes the fun out of lounging. It’s a good idea to always have comfortable blankets and pillows to cuddle up together to read books or watch a movie. Food & Beverage area: Unless you have a strict “no food and drink in the Fam Cave” rule, you will want to have some kind of area to set up the popcorn, pop, cookies, and even pizza for special nights. Having a refrigerator, microwave and sink is helpful, but not necessary. Even a countertop, a cart, or a small dining table can serve this purpose. Play area: Depending on the age of your children, play might mean running around in circles, or it might mean pushing buttons. For little kids, think outside the box – if you have the room, why not build (or find) a small loft with a slide? or create a play store for the kids to make and “sell” their own stuff? Or even an art studio, complete with easels, paint, clay, and paper-covered tables? For big kids - gaming systems with a TV would be plenty to satisfy most teens. For those who like to use a little more creativity, an art studio might be a great solution for them, too! Or a little reading nook with comfortable chairs and cozy lighting. Or maybe a music corner where they can jam on their guitar, drums, or keyboard (I suggest electric instruments with headphones if you want a quieter space.) Some might say that a computer nook would be a great thing to have – I agree, to an extent. With internet privacy issues and the accessibility of non-family-friendly websites, I tend to think that computers belong in an office.

So what do you need to create a man’s paradise? Main focus: A big screen tv? a fully-stocked bar? a pool table? Whatever it is, it’s got to be something that makes you feel manly. I’m not saying that it has to be expensive or big – just something that oozes testosterone. Secondary focus: Something else man-ish, a distraction from the central focus for when you are frustrated by the big game, or by losing a pool game! This could be anything from a TV to a poker table, to a mini putting green. Decoration: I’m not talking flowers or wallpaper. I’m thinking beer bottles, old license plates, old baseball trading cards, metal road signs, antique car parts, or even snow skiis! Think three-dimensional, like a lot of national chain restaurants. Entertainment: This is usually a tv, but can be a stereo system, a pinball machine, a foosball or billiards table, or even board games. Seating: This could be a couch, a high-top table with stools, or even saddles on stationary posts at a bar. Just remember that, if you hope to spend a lot of time in this cave, you’ll want enough comfortable seating to house the rear ends of you and your buddies at least the length of a football game. Lighting: Depending on your room, this could be hanging lights, canned lighting, or lamps. If you are in a crunched space, I suggest canned lighting. If you’re looking for a great way to update an old bar area, add some under-cabinet lighting, or even pendants over the bar-counter. Food & beverage serving area: Typically, this is a wet or dry bar, but could be a rolling cart, a cupboard, or some shelves. If you don’t want people to put their drinks and food on the billiards table, you’ll want to make sure you have a table or counter of some kind nearby. Though a refrigerator, sink and microwave is nice to have, these are not necessities unless you plan to serve food and drink on a regular basis. A theme: Maybe your theme is sports, or maybe gaming or Western. If you want a cohesive feel, keep the theme throughout. If you want to mix a few themes, go for it! If you do this, though, you probably want to maintain cohesiveness somewhere else: a color scheme (like browns with maroon, navy, and teal), an era (like antique or modern), or a brand (a certain brand of beverage or car).
