Plan Your Thanksgiving Meal

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Events and Happenings, Family Fun

15963609_SIn order to survive the last minute dash to the grocery store and the frantic meal planning, table setting, wine choosing moments that sometimes define our Thanksgiving holidays, why not sit down now and plan your meal. Then perhaps you can actually enjoy the cooking and still have time to talk to your friends and family.

Start with how many people you will have over for dinner. Are you going to have everyone bring a dish or are you going to cook everything yourself?

What time are you going to serve your meal? This will determine how early you have to get up, what time you need to start your turkey and how much you can possibly get done the night before.

Are you going to have turkey, ham or something untraditional? Order your ham and turkey now from your butcher. Possibly you have an old family recipe that you always use, but if not scour food magazines and online sites for different preparations. One note of caution, please don’t try anything too complicated. You don’t want to try out a new recipe only to have it flop.

Determine the number of sides you want to have. Do you want mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, Brussels sprouts, green beans and rolls? Make your list and then plan your oven time. Your turkey or ham will take up the oven so be sure your sides can be done on the stovetop or made the night before and warmed in the microwave.

Make dessert the night before. If you are planning on making homemade pies, make your piecrust the day before you finish the pies. By splitting up the work you will avoid getting overwhelmed.

Set the table the night before as well. Clean your main floor paying particular attention to the guest bathroom. Set out extra tables for guests to rest their drinks on. Make sure your front porch looks inviting.

Now pour yourself a glass of wine and count your blessings.

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Events and Happenings

How many of us run to the florist annually to get our mother fresh flowers for Mother’s Day? While the beautiful blooms are well received and well loved, they eventually wither and die, leaving an empty void where the fresh florals were. If your mother loves having blooms in her home, consider getting her some of the botanicals and florals available through For the Home from Ambassador Floor Company.

Mohawk Screen Shot of the iPhone App

Download the applications so that you can...

It seems like there is an app for everything, and carpeting did not want to feel left out. Mohawk is leading the industry with their social media programs and approaches, and, in keeping pace with their progress, they’ve just launched their own iPhone application.

Shopping for flooring materials can be a bit stressful for some, as picking the right color, design, and warranty level can be a little daunting with the large number of choices available at Ambassador Floor Company. To give you a little stress relief and to give your mind a short break during the design process, Mohawk’s app, “Mohawk ME!” will put a mohawk on anyone’s face photo, so you can see what you would look like as a rock star. The application is not only good for stress relief, but can also keep get your creative mind going while you’re designing the perfect living room or bedroom with Mohawk carpet.

The new application will also go towards connecting Mohawk to an entire new category of customers, the “digital generation.” If you’re wondering what a mohawk hairstyle has to do with carpeting, then you have to try out the application. There are 8 mohawks to choose from; after you make your choice, the application matches you with one of Mohawk’s products, basing their selection on your style and taste in a mohawk. (More traditional clients can always use Mohawk’s RooMMate program for suggestions).

Made in the USA: Mohawk Featured on ABC

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Events and Happenings

ABC World News recently did a story on items that are American made to show consumers where their goods come from. Diane Sawyer led the story. On their interactive “Made in America” map, you can see little stars all over the United States, signifying where each home-grown and developed business is located. You can sort through by clicking each star, or by selecting a category, such as “bedding”, “drapes”, “dressers”, etc.

In the carpet selection only one name pops out: Mohawk. Mohawk is stationed in Calhoun, Georgia, where it produces all of its rugs. As one of the largest flooring companies in the nation, Mohawk then provides a great amount of jobs and helps the American economy by keeping their booming business on the American shores.
