Your Holiday Headquarters

The excitement of the holiday season is in full-swing at Homefest. We’ve ushered in seasonal dinnerware, holiday décor, delicious gourmet gifts, and more to help you entertain effortlessly. We recognize this year’s celebrations will likely be more intimate, but that’s all the more reason to make them special. As we look ahead to the season, we’re excited to embrace smaller, more personal gatherings at home and wanted to share a few of our favorite things for pulling together a holiday season to remember.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

This year, Mother’s Day is looking different than ever before. We find ourselves in challenging times but everywhere we look, we are all in this together, trying to support one another, and to navigate these uncertain times with as much grace as we can muster. At the helm is mom, working from home, juggling homeschooling, cooking 3-meals a day… and then some. As we continue to look forward to a future on the other side of all of this, we are focusing on the positive; there are still special occasions to celebrate, gratitude to be given, and love to share.

We put our heads together (virtually, of course) and came up with a collection of thoughtful and easy-to-give gifts from a distance to remind mom, grandma, or even your gal-pal, that you’re thinking of her, sending love, and looking to brighten her day.

Jan Barboglio Visits Homefest

Wrapped in the mysticism, history, romance and the spirituality of old Mexico, the Jan Barboglio collection has been a cornerstone of the decorative accessories and table-top offering at Homefest from the day Jan released her first collection.  To say we are big fans of her beautiful designs goes beyond understatement.

Jan’s artisanry found its roots in north-central Mexico where she spent her childhood.  After many years designing clothes with her sister Christina, Jan turned to sculpting decorative accessories, furniture and serving pieces for entertaining at home.  Embellished with crosses and crowns, scrolls, guardian angels and symbolic bleeding hearts, Jan’s collection is well-known for bringing the spirituality of old Mexico and the casual sophistication of Western living to home décor.

Black and White Kitchen Design Project

Over the course of Homefest’s 20+ years, several customers have asked us for help designing the interior of their home. It wasn’t a service that we originally had planned to offer, but it made sense with our mix of lighting, furniture, artwork, bedding, decorative accessories and area rugs. Since the first request a dozen years ago, we’ve been involved with projects that range from a one-room kitchen re-model to several top-to-bottom total makeovers.

We recently finished a kitchen remodel for a couple of empty-nesters who wanted to open up a small, awkward kitchen and create a more functional space that would become the heart of the home for their large, extended family. We love the way Black and White Kitchen Design Project turned out.  The simplicity of the black and white color scheme is classic and modern at the same time.
