Holding a Family Reunion at Your Country Home

Posted by Piper Classics on July 8, 2015 at 11:30 AM

A family reunion can be fun and exciting. It’s a chance to reconnect with loved ones you haven’t seen in years or meet distant relatives for the first time. You’ll get to hear or tell funny stories, play games, and make memories.

But it doesn’t have to be a headache, or at least not a big one. By working with your family to plan a gathering, it can bring everyone closer together. (Besides, we want to give you a chance to show off your country décor.)

There's a comfort in old things. Your worn-in sneakers fit better than your fancy dress shoes. Your neighborhood pizza place can be more relaxing than a hip, high-end restaurant. Sometimes you want an old Law & Order rerun instead of the latest watercooler addiction.

That desire for comfort and authenticity is at the heart of country decor.

A few branches down on country decor's family tree you'll find farmhouse decor, or farmhouse primitive, a simpler, less cluttered version of country.
