Park City's Electric Parade

By diana
Nov 25, 2015

Park City's annual Electric Parade is a great way to start off the holiday season with family and friends.  Cars, trucks, bicycles, and other creative forms of transportation are decked out in lights then paraded down Main Street, to Heber Avenue and then to City Park.  This year's parade will be held Saturday Nov. 28.  The official lighting of the town tree starts at 5:30pm and the parade leaves from City Park at 6pm.  Last year more than 2500 people attended so get there a little early for a good spot.

Saturday is also Small Business Saturday a great day to support all the small businesses along Main Street and through-out Park City.  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday weekend!

There is a new restaurant in Park City and we highly recommend that you put it on your “must experience” list.

Tupelo at 508 Main street next to the post office is Park City’s newest and highly acclaimed restaurant.

Locals like us who have been invited to sample some of their dishes prior to their official opening are already making reservations to come back.

Owner and Chef Matt Harris was invited by renowned chef Georges Vongerichten to help open J&G Grill at the St. Regis in Deer Valley. Now Matt has opened his own restaurant and Tupelo has created a buzz among the cuisine connoisseurs of Park City.

Seven Party Decorating Tips For Your Home

By diana
Nov 23, 2015

When planning a party at home, decorating can easily slide down the to-do list as more essential tasks (like menu planning, shopping and cleaning) take priority. But isn’t much of the fun of a party the feeling that things are a bit fancier than the everyday? A few well-placed, non-holiday-specific decorations can dress up parties from now through the New Year. Hit these seven decorating hot spots, and you’ll know your home is party ready.

1. Draw attention to the front door. As guests arrive at the front door, they should feel a sense of occasion; even one special touch can do the trick.

You can’t go wrong with a seasonal wreath — it’s simple and elegant, and should last for several months.  For an even longer-lasting display, a pair of stately topiaries flanking the door makes an elegant first impression.

2. Polish up the foyer. The place where you greet your guests deserves to be gussied up a bit at party time. Pick and choose between these festive accents that can work for any party, holiday or not:

  • A pair of mini topiaries on the entry table
  • Lit candles with a beautiful fragrance
  • A pretty bowl filled with candy
  • A silver mint julep cup filled with freshly cut roses
3. Set the dining table. When you are having a dinner party, having the table fully set before guests arrive not only makes things less stressful, but the set table becomes part of the decor. A table setting like the one shown here looks extremely polished but takes less effort than you might think.

Follow these steps to give it your own twist:

  • Cover your table with a tablecloth or runner in a natural material like linen, burlap or wool tweed. Or, if you have a pretty wood table, leave it bare!
  • Form your centerpiece by arranging dried moss down the center third of the table, and top it with antlers or driftwood. Nestle in a few fresh “ingredients,” like mini white pumpkins, succulents, persimmons, pomegranates or pears.
  • Set the table. If you want to use chargers, try a metallic hue that matches your flatware or use natural wood slices. Top each plate with a piece of the same fruit or veg used in the centerpiece.
4. Create a drinks table. Another great use of the dining table during non-dinner parties is as a bountiful, self-serve bar. Make it festive by setting a few large-scale objects near the center.

If you are using a credenza or bar cart in the living room as the drinks table, call attention to it by placing something with a bit of sparkle or light on top, like the branches shown here. Another easy but high-impact way to light up the bar is by coiling a strand or two of battery-operated string lights inside a large glass jar, and placing it on the bar.

5. Gussy up the mantel. If you have a beautiful mirror hanging above your mantel, simple candles may be all you need to make the room feel dressed up for a party. Moss-covered balls set atop candle holders look elegant, and you can leave them up all season. To take it a step further, hang a seasonal wreath above the mantel (you can also hang it over a mirror) and place seasonal fruit or gourds in front.

6. Style the coffee table. You will likely be ushering your guests into the living room, so give them something pretty to look at on the coffee table. A good formula is a simple vase with flowers plus a stack of books with an object on top. For a long coffee table, try placing the flowers in the center, with a stack of books on either side.

7. Primp the powder room. Fresh hand towels and soap are a must. If you have pretty embroidered hand towels, use them! A tiny posy of flowers in a bud vase on the sink is a welcome touch. For a bit more formality, set out a stack of neatly rolled white hand towels, and provide a basket to place used towels in. For any party, offering hand cream, a stain remover stick and a candle (with matches) on a pretty tray is a nice touch.

Selling a multi-million-dollar home is a creative challenge, and not every REALTOR® has the skills to do it successfully.  What should you look for when choosing a Park City REALTOR® to market your exclusive Park City or Deer Valley property?

First, look for a Park City REALTOR® who demonstrates in-depth knowledge of the luxury home market in your area.  Find out how many high-end homes they have successfully represented, what was the selling time, and how the asking price compared with the sale price.  Your Park City REALTOR® should have experience in working with the attorneys and business managers of wealthy clients, and a reputation for complete discretion.  Their connections should include a global network of luxury home agents and qualified buyers.  Their listing presentation should convince you that they value your home as much as you do and will provide a cutting-edge marketing program to find the right buyer.

A highly effective and experienced Park City REALTOR® with extensive connections in the luxury marketplace will be an invaluable asset in the process of selling your unique home.
