While the autumn season is filled with visits to our favorite pumpkin patches and strolls through the beautiful fall foliage, the winter months tend to fill us with the desire to curl up on our living room couch and spend a cozy evening at home with our loved ones. At Trophy Signature Homes, we create our floor plan designs to fit the needs of all of our homeowners, so if you’re wondering what all you can do at home this winter season—here are some of our favorite ways to spend a perfect day or night in.
Have a DIY day
In our opinion, it’s never too early to start decorating your home for Christmas, and when you’re at home on a chilly winter day, try your hand at making some of your own decorations this year. Set up the ultimate craft station in the dining area or family room and let the kids help out making paper snowflakes to hang from the ceilings in their rooms or a countdown to Christmas calendar to get you in the holiday spirit.
Getting creative doesn’t always mean home decorations, though. Gather the entire family in the kitchen and try out some new baking recipes to perfect your holiday party menu. Even if you have a few individuals in your family who aren’t the most helpful in the kitchen, we’re positive that everyone would be especially willing to taste test.
Schedule a family game night
There’s never a bad time to have a family game night, but in the winter time, it’s especially cozy to put on your favorite flannel pajamas, set out all of the snacks you could possibly need for the night and pick out a few of your favorite games to spend your evening together. Whether you work together to finish your newest puzzle, compete in your favorite board game or put away the phones for an exciting game of charades—you’re sure to have a memorable winter night in.
Turn your family room into a campground
While the weather outside isn’t ideal for a backyard campout in the winter, your Trophy home family room happens to be the perfect destination. Set up extra chairs to frame the fort, grab as many blankets as you can find to drape over all of the furniture and toss all of your pillows on the floor for a cozy sitting setup. Pick out your favorite holiday movie, brew up some hot chocolate in your best mugs and maybe set out a few of your Christmas cookies from your baking night to round out the evening.
Host a holiday party
The winter holiday season is the perfect time for all of your loved ones to get together, and your Trophy home is the ideal place to hold this year’s festivities. The spacious, open-concept family room, kitchen and dining areas offer the ideal hangout spot for everyone to catch up whether they’re helping prepare the meal or simply waiting to enjoy it. With many of our floor plans offering a number of guest or flex bedrooms throughout their designs, you’ll also have plenty of space for any individuals who are planning to spend the night.
Take some time for yourself
Hosting a party, especially a holiday party with all of your friends and family, can take a lot out of you—so it’s important to also make some time for yourself at your Trophy home this winter season. Our Trophy Signature homes have luxurious primary suites that could easily be turned into your own personal spa getaway. Slip on your comfiest robe, draw yourself a warm bath, line up your favorite self-care skincare items and pour yourself a glass of wine for a well-deserved night to yourself.
