5 Ways To Make Your Home Christmas Ready

It's always fun to prepare our homes for special occasions and Christmas is no exception. We've put together 5 ways that will help you get your home Christmas ready. Make sure you have prepared ahead so that the festive season is filled with fun, allowing you to celebrate in style.

1.

The first impression of your home will come from a great house sign on arrival to your property and also some stylish door furniture, a door knocker is always useful so that you will know when your guests have arrived, hopefully holding a bottle of your favourite tipple. If guests are staying over and you're planning on some winter walks then you will need somewhere for boots to be stored near to your entrance and a great boot pull to ensure they are easily removed.

2.

The main area you will want to have ready to go is the kitchen. All good parties end up here and so you need to have it ready for cooking and entertaining. The rustic wall mounted bottle opener is a must to have on the wall at any party, your guests will thank you.
This stylish enamelled roasting tin is ideal for larger joints of meat, poultry and a large amount of veggie roasts for the vegetarian Christmas meal. No kitchen should be without one at Christmas.

If you're thinking about making some delicious bubble and squeak the day after Christmas with all of the leftovers or cooking up some delicious eggs for breakfast, then nothing is better than these wonderful cast iron skillets, which retain the heat and have the added advantage of hob to oven cooking.

Your dining area is going to be one of the central areas to show off at Christmas time. We're sure you will love serving pre-dinner drinks in these delightful gin pewter glasses, produced 100% in the UK.

The G and T is always a winter favourite.

Once full from all that Christmas dinner you will want to retire to a comfy living room and put your feet up next to the fire. Nothing is better than a log fire at Christmas and these log baskets are perfect for carrying logs through from outside and also storing them next to the fireplace.
Rustic Metal Log Basket
While relaxing now is the time to crack a few nuts in this fabulous cast iron nutcracker, no worries about spilling the shells as it has a handy built-in shell catcher, it looks great displayed all year round too.

Beware Of The Dog? - What's Your Gate Sign?

Beware Of The Dog? - What's Your Gate Sign?

We love having Truffle our adorable Dachshund in the workplace, he certainly brings a smile to everyone's face as they greet him on arrival to work as he is so friendly and loving. Of course not all dogs are as approachable as our pup and so having a warning sign for any visitors to your premises is a must.

 

Beware of the dog must be one of the most common gate signs. It makes a clear message to your visitors, giving a clear warning when they enter your property. Coming in several sizes and shapes with varying messages regarding your pet they can be placed on gates, doorways, fences or walls. Making sure your pets are kept safely inside your boundary fence is also important and making sure your visitors know you have pets and to keep your gates closed is paramount to their safety.

 

There are several pet plaques to display around your home and garden, with variations on the traditional beware of the dog sign. There is dog loose please close the gate or loose dogs in the garden, both an ideal size for a gate sign.

When it comes to dog warning signs there are many options for your gate, signs such as 'Be Aware Of The Dogs', or 'Do not Open Gate, Loose Dog'.

When it comes to our pets it seems we love to place name plaques on their homes, such as stable plaques for horses, kennel plaques for dogs even hen house plaques for our feathered friends.

We love our furry companions so much that it is important that we do everything to keep them safe, letting others know they are living in our home and garden. A cast gate sign will last for years, being the ideal way to send a message to passers by.

You may also want to ask people to keep their dogs on a lead around your grounds or to politely request no dog fouling.

 

With so many options you are sure to find a great pet sign which is ideal, looks stunning and fits the requirements of your home and garden. After all you don't want to be left in the dog house.

How Many Reasons Are There To Have A Man Cave?

How Many Reasons Are There To Have A Man Cave?

Reasons To Have A Man Cave 
So the original cave men lived in quite sophisticated spaces, not very cave like at all. Although in the middle ages things moved on tenants could probably be more of a problem for landlords and had a smaller more peasant like space to live in. We're sure that modern man will want his man cave free of  any animal damage and so may well appreciate a tin sign.
Vintage Cock Feeding Tin Sign
'Scientists found that the cave man shelter was divided into three levels. The top was full of animal bones, suggesting it was a food-prep area where animals were butchered. The middle level was more of a living space, with a fire pit toward the back. And the bottom was a sort of staging area, with a workshop toward the front where stone tools were evidently made, and perhaps stored, ready for hunting forays'.
Rustic Wooden Shelf Wine Rack
Modern man has now found a new sanctuary in his man cave or personal space dedicated to hobbies, fun times, collections and areas to just chill out and be himself for a while without outside distractions and interruptions.
With our increasingly fast paced lifestyle impinging on out time and energy more and more it's no surprise that men are taking refuge in their man caves.
Personalising the space is one of the most important jobs when creating the ideal man cave, beginning with a sign to differentiate the space, claiming it as yours and yours alone as the man of the house.
Cast Metal Man Cave Sign
There are many other ways to enjoy a great man cave, from chilling with your favourite beer to just enjoying spending time doing the things you love.
Cast Iron Vintage Hand Held Bottle Openers
Think about having a great bottle opener in there and your favourite tipple. A bit of rustic furniture and maybe if its reminiscent of a wine cellar a few bar accessories.
Michelin Man Mascot Polished Cast Metal
Adorn your space with plaques on the wall and quirky memorabilia, from railway signs, garage plaques or just a funny sign that will give you and your mates a good laugh.

We love our table footie, but that's a story for another time.
