Kitchen Islands Butcher Blocks Can Add Capacity and Efficiency to Any Gathering

Holidays or food preparation time for a large gathering, when all the resources of the kitchen are in use, is when the need for more counter space, additional storage, another oven, or refrigerator, becomes obvious. The thoughts usually generated during this time, surround being able to afford a complete kitchen remodel.

Ultimately, remodeling may be the best solution for the home, but in the mean time, kitchen islands or a butcher block, in the existing kitchen, just may be an affordable expansion to counter space, and capacity needed for food preparation for a large gathering or holiday. The new components can be purchased easily and brought into service with little stress.

Portable islands are very effective, and can be a beautiful addition to a kitchen. They can be purchased to match the existing cabinetry, and counter tops, or they can be purchased as contrasting accent pieces. The beauty of portable kitchen islands is they add utility, and value to the home without the expense and headaches of remodeling the kitchen.

Of course adding a kitchen island to an existing kitchen, requires some restraint, and good judgment, regarding the unit most compatible with the existing kitchen. If necessary ask a professional, what would be the best solution, an island or a butcher block unit. Also a professional may suggest minor tweaks to the existing kitchen, that will prevent having the island, or butcher block looking like an after thought. A professional, or a friend with a good eye for color, can assist with choosing a kitchen island, that is painted rather than wood tone.

Some unexpected benefits of adding portable kitchen islands or a butcher block, include but are not limited to the following: Additional seating, and eating space. A portable buffet table for family gatherings, entertaining, and general use. They can be moved to any room for the holiday or gathering depending on the needs, and are also useful in large open areas to help define space.

Probably the best benefit of the Kitchen Island, is using it for a homework space while mom, or dad is in the kitchen. It provides the benefits, of easily keeping the child on task, while providing a venue for those wonderful times we spend with our children, and grand-children, just talking, and being in each others space. Time with Mom, Dad, Grandma, or Grandpa in the kitchen at holiday or any time provide children with a full supply of wonderful memories of good cooking, wonderful smells, feeling close, and being loved and cared for over a life time.

Holiday Looks Inspired By Angelina Jolie’s Red Prom Dress

Angelina Jolie, one of my fashion icon recently rocked down the red carpet for premiere of Bard Pitt’s “Moneyball” in Tokyo. She was totally glamorous in a form-fitting red cocktail dress. From her stunning look, I seemed to get inspiration of what to wear for the approaching holiday parties. If you have not figured out your ensemble idea, read on and perhaps you will be inspired.

Red Prom Dresses Always Can Rock Down Red Carpet
When we think party outfit, we probably think about little black dress, right? It is true that LBD can not be wrong to please every taste. But from different colors of prom dresses, red is the top one in red carpet these years. Look back to Emmy Awards 2011, it was certainly a battle of red dresses. Stars such as Kate Winslet, Nina Dobrev or Kerry Washington all picked out a red gown to show their glams. We also saw Angelina wearing a sheath one-shoulder prom dress in LACMA to get wow effect. Personally, I think these dresses are elegant. Their chic feel, combined with their hair style makes them an fabulous conversation piece and stunning outfit accent.

Mix-up Hue to Go with Red Prom Dress
Another find , Angelina got a pair of nude shoes to go with the dress. It was simple and easy addition to bring out her charm. Red is a great festival and lucky color if you feel bored of the typical black hue and are looking to mix it up. Maybe now it is time to get a piece of red prom dress out for a spin. Just like Angelina, try a pair of nude shoes out instead of a plain black pair to instantly upgrade your look.

Sarkle Red Cocktail Dress is Perfect for Holiday
We know sparkle is always the number one perfect statement for holiday. A pretty short cocktail dress with a chic red hue is absolutely gorgeous for a party look. In addition, it is relatively comfortable to don this dress for a reunion with friends or family for a night long. A piece of jacket can add your ensemble edgy, meanwhile, get you out of the cold weather. No sparle enough? Go on and add just a liitle bit of glitter by wearing a pair of chic pumps or choosing some simple jewelry.

We are sure the above celebrity prom dresses must cost a lot. But we are able to get the same style dress from shops online such DressilyMe.com. It can save us a lot as well as provide us a celebs style fashion.

Do you love Angelina’s red dress as much as I do? Do you get any inspiration from her look? What are your best finds? Do not forget to share your thoughts with a comment.
