A Tradition of Gratitude
Now that the Halloween skeletons are all back in their closets, it’s tempting to get lost in the holiday frenzy. At Kisabeth, we’re looking for opportunities to really savor the season.
For example, home tours are a great reason to gather with friends, enjoy gorgeous home décor, and support worthy local causes. Read on for a list of popular Dallas-area tours.
Thankful MemoriesAs we approach Thanksgiving, everyone at Kisabeth is feeling nostalgic, sharing memories, and family traditions.
When I was growing up, we ate holiday meals around my grandparents’ ping pong table. After dinner, there was an epic ping pong tournament, and my mom was usually the player to beat!
Kisabeth’s Fort Worth Office Manager, Gracie Estrada, says that at her house, they cheer for the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. “We prepare for our feast the night before,” says Estrada. “And then we spend Thanksgiving Day rooting for America’s team, eating turkey, and counting our blessings.”
Best Seat in the HouseHere in the Dallas showroom, we love hearing stories from customers who have enjoyed Kisabeth pieces in their homes for generations. They show us photos of their growing families gathering around the same sofa every year. And we happily add to their barstool collections as more family members join them for holiday brunch at their kitchen islands.
Our customers are impressed with the endurance and timeless design of their Kisabeth furniture. We reupholster their pieces occasionally, but only to refresh the style.
At Kisabeth we have a tradition of craftsmanship. We use the same time-tested building techniques and quality materials as we did when we were founded in 1958. Everything is made by hand in Fort Worth, TX, and it’s intended to last for generations.
No Place Like a Home Tour
First up on our list of November home tour favorites is the highly esteemed Kips Bay Decorator Show House. It runs for two weeks beginning on Friday, Nov. 3. Two of Kisabeth’s talented neighbors will help spearhead the event: Chad Dorsey is one of this year’s co-chairs and Jan Showers is an honorary event chair. The event benefits Dwell with Dignity and the Crystal Charity Ball.
Next is the Lakewood Home Tour weekend on Saturday, Nov. 11, and Sunday, Nov. 12. The event raises money for Lakewood Elementary School, J.L. Long Middle School, and Woodrow Wilson High School.
Closing out the month is the Holiday in the Highlands Home Tour. The event begins Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4-8 p.m. with a free Sip & Shop Holiday Market at the Lake Highlands Kaycee Club. More than 20 local vendors will be on-site to help you kick off your holiday shopping spree with bubbly in hand. The home tour is on Friday, Dec. 1. Funds raised during Holiday in the Highlands support the greater Lake Highlands community.
Finally, we have the ABPA Home Tour, which is also on Friday, Dec. 1. It features four homes in Highland Park and University Park. The event raises money for kindergarten and first grade classes at Armstrong and Bradfield Elementary Schools.What are some of your favorite traditions this time of year?
