Christmas – the holiday so nice, it has to be celebrated twice. Christmas in July is perfect for those who adore the Yuletide season, and can’t wait to experience the cheerful sights and festive spirit all over again. One of the best parts of this amusing summer event is setting up a Christmas in July tree and decorating it in a suitably tongue-in-cheek manner.

It’s perfectly okay to display a traditional green tree or a colorful, contemporary one for this celebration. But if you really want to make an impression, there’s nothing like Treetopia’s Catalina Breeze Palm Trees to show that you own the occasion!

As its name implies, Independence Day is all about doing your own thing. That liberty also extends to home decorating.

This week, we’re giving you tips and inspiration on how to decorate with our trees. Feel free to mix and match ideas as you see fit – after all, this is the land of the free and the home of the brave!

The Stars and Stripes Christmas Tree

For anyone looking for a tree to display this Independence Day, this would be the top choice. It comes with a rotating stand so you can showcase the medley of patriotic colors in all their glory. The striking patterns are tree decorations in their own right. To complete the ensemble, bring out the star-shaped ornaments and tree-topper you used last Christmas. Golden ornaments are ideal for contrast against the already bright red, white, and blue medley of colors. They also add a touch of elegance to your Independence Day-themed tree. An all-American tree for an all-American holiday—that’s the Treetopia Stars and Stripes Christmas tree. (more…)

Being a dad on Father’s Day can sometimes be rough. According to a consumer survey, over 75% of people feel that moms get more attention than dads on their respective special days. With those figures in mind, it’s time to throw a grand celebration to show your old man just how much you love and appreciate him. To make his party extra fun and meaningful, try incorporating his personality, interests, profession, or favorite hobby into the party’s theme. Here are few Father’s Day party ideas to get you inspired:

All-Star Sports Party

Whether your dad is a weekend warrior or an armchair athlete, a sports-themed party will make him feel like a winner!


Attire

Dad will get a kick out of seeing everyone wearing his favorite team’s uniform or apparel. If finding gear from his favorite team isn’t possible or practical, here’s a simpler option: ask guests to wear the colors of his team. Dressing up in club colors, whether it’s Liverpool FC’s red or the Los Angeles Lakers’ gold and purple, would be an awesome nod to your dad’s fanhood (even if you’re more of a San Antonio Spurs fan).

Décor

Embellish party banners, balloons, and table decoration with the same club colors. Hang pennants and jerseys on the walls, and scatter caps and sports gear around the room. If your dad loves golf, set up a putting mat and encourage his friends to aim for that elusive hole-in-one. Is your dad a sucker for soccer? Borrow or rent a foosball table and stage a Foosball World Cup in his honor!

Dinner

Prepare a dinner fit for champions by serving dad’s signature dishes with tasty stadium-style food. Fill up your Father’s Day menu with spicy chicken wings, hot dogs with toppings, and slices of pizza. Guzzle ice-cold beer in paper cups to wash it all down.

Space is the most important element of your home’s interior. You can fill your living room with the most beautiful furniture around, but it wouldn’t be much of a “living room” if you couldn’t actually live in it due to an inefficient use of space. This scenario applies to your kitchen— perhaps even more so.

The kitchen is where most of the housework gets done. Compared to the living room or bedroom, the kitchen sees more work done in a day than both those rooms combined. Smaller kitchens pose an even bigger challenge, since you’ll need to make judicious use of the limited space available.

Below are a few tips on how you can make a tiny kitchen as functional as possible – and have a bit of fun, while you’re at it!

You can fill a room with stylish furniture, but the place will look unfinished if you leave too many walls bare. An empty wall is full of potential, and decorating such a significant space is a task that can be delightful for some, and daunting for others. Here are some easy wall decorating ideas that add personality and liven any space.

Punch it up with paint

Painting a single wall with a bold color is the easiest way to add excitement and contrast to the room.  This design approach is a great way to accentuate a living space, plus it allows you to experiment with stronger colors that may be overwhelming when used on all available walls.

When picking a color, take your cue from decorative pieces around the room. The orange accent wall pictured below plays off the orange throw pillows on the sofa, and helps complete the look of the space.

If you prefer to keep things more subtle, choose a deeper shade of your existing wall color. This gentle contrast should be enough to break the blandness of a mono-colored room.

Watching a movie at home with family and friends is a great to unwind after a busy week of work. With summer breezing in, why not make movie night more special by having it al fresco?  Watching a movie outdoors is a memorable way to catch up on Hollywood’s string of summer blockbusters. Here are some ideas to make your outdoor movie party an epic blockbuster:

Set the Stage

Whether you’re setting up an outdoor movie theater in the backyard, driveway, or the rooftop of a building, finding a spot that provides optimum viewing distance and lighting is important. Make sure your audience sits at comfortable distance from the screen, and avoid areas where street lamps or lighted signs can cast a glare on the screen.

Offer your guests a variety of comfortable seating options, such as folding chairs, ottomans, or lawn recliners. You can also lay down some mats, sleeping bags, or blankets for anyone who prefers to watch lying down. If the evening gets chilly, throw out some pillows, cushions, and quilts to keep everyone extra cozy.

Start off by selecting plain Easter eggs in pastel colors that work well with pink, such as mint green, pale yellow, and sky blue. If you find preparing homemade Easter eggs too time-consuming, get artificial ones online or at your favorite craft store. Many of these faux eggs have holes at the top for hangers like ribbon, string, or fishing line. Some are even pre-threaded for your convenience.
