 Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving Recipes is a collection of delicious Thanksgiving dinner recipes and entertaining ideas to help you plan your holiday weekend!

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated in Canada and the United States. It was originally celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the second Monday of October in Canada and on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. Although Thanksgiving has historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, it has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

U.S. tradition compares the holiday with a meal held in 1621 by the Wampanoag and the Pilgrims who settled at Plymouth Plantation. It is continued in modern times with the Thanksgiving dinner, traditionally featuring turkey, playing a central role in the celebration of Thanksgiving.

In the United States, certain kinds of food are traditionally served at Thanksgiving meals. Firstly, baked or roasted turkey is usually the featured item on any Thanksgiving feast table (so much so that Thanksgiving is sometimes referred to as 'Turkey Day'). Stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, sweet corn, various fall vegetables, squash, and pumpkin pie are commonly associated with Thanksgiving dinner. All of these are actually native to the Americas or were introduced as a new food source to the Europeans when they arrived. Turkey may be an exception. In the book Mayflower, it is suggested that the Pilgrims might already have been familiar with turkey in England, even though the bird is native to the Americas. The Spaniards had brought domesticated turkeys back from Central America in the early 17th century, and the birds soon became popular fare all over Europe, including England, where turkey (as an alternative to the traditional goose) became a 'fixture at English Christmases'. As a result of the size of Thanksgiving dinner, Americans eat more food on Thanksgiving than on any other day of the year.. :)

Halloween Recipes 

Halloween Recipes features delicious Hallowe'en recipes and party ideas you can enjoy this Halloween(+ a little game to entertain you)!

Halloween, or Hallowe'en (a contraction of All Hallows’ Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. 

It is widely believed that many Halloween traditions originated from Celtic harvest festivals, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain, and that this festival was Christianized as Halloween. Some academics, however, support the view that Halloween began independently as a solely Christian holiday.

Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, attending Halloween costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing and divination games, playing pranks, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories and watching horror films.
The word Halloween or Hallowe'en dates to about 1745 and is of Christian origin. The word "Hallowe'en" means "hallowed evening" or "holy evening". It comes from a Scottish term for All Hallows' Eve (the evening before All Hallows' Day). In Scots, the word "eve" is even, and this is contracted to e'en or een. Over time, (All) Hallow(s) E(v)en evolved into Hallowe'en. Although the phrase "All Hallows'" is found in Old English, "All Hallows' Eve" is itself not seen until 1556.

Room Painting Ideas

Room Painting Ideas

Room Painting Ideas presents the coolest interior paint and color ideas of the moment! 

Creating an interior color scheme from scratch is not an easy task! The keys are inspiration and planning. 

Contrary to popular belief, paint colors should not be the first thing to choose when planning your interior color scheme. The right paint color has an awesome way of pulling everything together and completing the story - or, on the other hand, making everything look disjointed when it's wrong. There are a few steps you should take when creating an interior color scheme.. 

Finding Your Color Inspiration - Discover what inspires you and create a 'mood board'. Start collecting visuals of color combos that you are drawn to, pics of furniture you love, style vignettes from magazines - anything that captures your attention and conveys the mood you want your space to convey. Add these to a foam core board or paste them in a scrapbook. The important part of this step is to see everything together so you can start to find a theme to guide you. It doesn't have to look like a professional design board, this is just for you.. :) 

Choose Finishes For Your Bigger Pieces - Your 'mood or inspiration board' should help you recognize the style you want in your space(for example: warm & welcoming or cool & refreshing) and a general palette for you to start committing to purchases of your big ticket items, such as flooring, kitchen and bathroom cabinets and countertops. If possible, get samples of all these elements before you buy and lay them out in a similar fashion to the inspiration board. Don't forget to add to this collage photos of existing pieces that you want to keep. To create color flow, you want every finish to harmonize with the next, even if they are not in adjacent rooms. 

Select Colors For Soft Finishes(eg. Drapes & Upholstery) - This is where you will want to be a little more adventurous in your interior color scheme. You may not have the budget or the desire to change your flooring every five years. But you can change the more decorative items like rugs, drapes, and pillows more often without a lot of disruption, so have some fun! 

Complete The Story With The Addition Of Paint Color - It's always a good idea to have a floor plan when it's finally time to choose the paint colors for your wall. You can overlay your color options on the floor plan to see how one color relates to the next. Compare your color choices to your finishes board to ensure the colors coordinate. Add accent colors where appropriate, and don't be afraid to use a strong color on all four walls of a room if it works with your plan. Add various shades of one neutral for interest. Don't forget about ceilings—they can be a great place to add harmonizing color! 

Always Pick Up Paint Color Samples - Actual pint samples of your paint colors or large 18 x 18 inch color chips are really helpful. Put them on your walls and view the colors at various times throughout the day to see how the lighting affects them. Color samples are a small investment to make when the result is finding the perfect paint colors for your home. 

Our Room Painting Ideas app offers room design & paint color ideas plus simple ways to create stunning changes in your home, regardless of your budget or personal style..

Garden Design Ideas

Cover art

Garden Design Ideas presents the most stunning garden design ideas for 2016..! 

Garden design is the art and process of designing and creating plans for layout and planting of gardens and landscapes. Garden design may be done by the garden owner themselves or by professionals of varying levels of experience and expertise. Most professional garden designers have some training in horticulture and the principles of design, and some are also landscape architects, a more formal level of training that usually requires an advanced degree and often a state license. Amateur gardeners may also attain a high level of experience from extensive hours working in their own gardens! 

Garden design is the foundation of any great landscape. What does your dream garden look like? Make that dream a reality with garden design ideas and inspiration for front yards and backyards. That includes stunning color, foliage, and plant combinations, as well as decor, landscaping, and curb appeal. 

If you’re looking for garden design ideas, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve compiled a collection of photographs showing a variety of garden styles to help get you started planning the garden you’ve always dreamed about. 

The right plants and accessories can set the tone for your ideal outdoor atmosphere - an invigorating escape or a relaxing retreat. You can embark on this gardening adventure yourself, or you can hire a landscape architect to help with advice. Either way, designing your garden can be a fun and rewarding experience. 

Whether a garden is designed by a professional or an amateur, certain principles form the basis of effective garden design, resulting in the creation of gardens to meet the needs, goals and desires of the users or owners of the gardens. 

Elements of garden design include the layout of hard landscape, such as paths, walls, water features, sitting areas and decking; as well as the plants themselves, with consideration for their horticultural requirements, their season-to-season appearance, lifespan, growth habit, size, speed of growth, and combinations with other plants and landscape features. Consideration is also given to the maintenance needs of the garden, including the time or funds available for regular maintenance, which can affect the choice of plants in terms of speed of growth, spreading or self-seeding of the plants, whether annual or perennial, and bloom-time, and many other characteristics. 

Important considerations in garden design include how the garden will be used, the desired stylistic genre and the way the garden space will connect to the home or other structures in the surrounding areas. All of these considerations are subject to the limitations of the prescribed budget. 

Green labyrinths, cobblestone pathways, small ponds, water fountains, colorful flowers, small trees - all of these(and more!) are elements that can induce a state of bliss. There’s nothing like being surrounded by your own green refuge, whether it’s a brisk morning or after a long day at work. 

Garden Design Ideas is a gorgeous way to put you in the diy garden & landscaping mood!
