Westbow Construction is committed to providing great service, excellent communication and the best quality home for you and your family. Westbow Construction is a Trusted Saskatoon and Area Home Builder. In their latest article they share tips on how to decorate your home for the holidays. 

Decorating Your Home For The Holidays 

No matter if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other Winter Holiday, December is the season to brighten up your home with holiday décor and decorations. From gingerbread baking in the oven to stockings hung over the fireplace- we’ve put together 8 easy ways to bring the holiday season into your Westbow Home.

1. Add a holiday wreath to your front door.


Adding a wreath to your front door is a great and simple way to bring the spirit of the holiday to your home. Local makers offers various styles of wreaths or you can create something yourself using local greenery.

2. Decorate your Christmas tree 

There are many options when it comes to your Christmas tree. There has been a long debate between whether a fake or real tree is better, but there are now more options than ever! Second hand artificial trees provide a lower cost option while those looking for an eco friendly option may opt for a returnable Christmas tree.


3. Fill your holiday mugs with homemade hot chocolate, apple cider, or mulled wine

As the weather gets colder outside, filling your mug with a warm cozy drink will help warm your body and soul. 


4. Bring festivity into your bathroom

Simple pieces of décor such as candles, a locally made sign, and some holiday themed hand towels are a great and easy way to bring the holidays into your bathrooms.
 

5. Light up your neighbourhood

Christmas lights provide a bright and cheery neighbourhood atmosphere. From traditional string lights to modern projectable lights, the variety in options are endless
 

6. Spend time baking holiday cookies

Your Westbow kitchen is perfect for spending time with your family, baking holiday cookies. There are many holiday cookies to choose from!  Gingerbread, sugar cookies, and shortbread are just a few of our favourites.
 

7. Relax in your loft and enjoy a holiday movie

Many Westbow homes have bonus rooms or lofts which make for excellent places to curl up and enjoy a holiday movie.

 

8. Spend time with your family and friends.

As the holidays draw closer, families and friends gather to celebrate the season. Westbow homes are built for hosting parties, get togethers, and dinners. Spacious, open concept kitchen’s and living rooms  ensure there are no separation between the guests and the hosts.

My Mom asked what the best was and we told her it was from a little place inside the Farmers Market a while ago . Mom started laughing because this was the place that used to be inside the Farmers  Market - so really they have done the 1st and 2nd best chai lattes ever!

Trusted Saskatoon Real Estate Agent Kari Calder Supports Camp Easter Seals

The decision to purchase your home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, and will also be one of your largest investments. Done right, it can also be one of the most exciting and fulfilling times in your life! Kari Calder a Saskatoon Realtor with Century 21 Fusion is there to help you through the process, and provide you and your family with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have a realtor working with your best interests in mind.  Kari Calder is a Trusted Saskatoon Realtor

Kari Calder Supports Camp Easter Seals

As a real estate agent in Saskatoon, Kari Calder can proudly say that she donates a portion of each and every sale to send kids to Camp Easter Seals. Easter Seals has been supported by Century 21 since 1979...well before Kari became a REALTOR® in Saskatoon! She has always been a proud supporter since becoming a Saskatoon REALTOR® in 2007 but since having a child of her own in 2014 she has stepped up her contributions.


To date, Century 21 REALTORS across Canada have raised approximately $12 Million to send kids to camp. In 2018 they had an astounding year and raised over $704,000 for Easter Seals through the C21 Kids to Camp Program: enough to enable over 330 kids who are living with disabilities to enjoy and benefit from the transformative experience of a lifetime at an Easter Seals summer camp in 2019.
As Tomany likely are unaware, we have an amazing spot in Watrous for local kids. Kari had the pleasure of visiting here in previous years and was blown away by the facility but also by the kids she met and all of the loving souls who work here and dedicate their time and energy to such a rewarding place. Century 21 agents from across Saskatchewan dedicate time each year to do a “camp clean up” before the season begins.

As a national company, Century 21 is a long standing partner and donor. Each year they have a variety of fundraisers including golf tournaments and events to help raise money to send kids living with disabilities to Easter Seals’ accessible summer camps across the country so that they can have fun, learn new skills, cultivate lifelong friends, and develop their confidence and abilities.

In 2018 our local Century 21 brokerage in Saskatoon was #3 in Canada and #7 in North America for funds raised. Amazingly, Century 21 Saskatoon was right behind Regina who held the #2 spot for Century 21 Canada with money raised.
Each home sold by Kari and each buyer represented by Kari in purchasing a home in Saskatoon (and surrounding communities) allows her to donate to this great cause and she has personally been raising above and beyond the amount to be recognized as a “Golden Heart” with the company. She can’t do this without her loyal Saskatoon real estate clients and those who refer their friends and family to her. So she wants to say thank you...we know the kids thank you as well!

Please consider Kari as your Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® with a golden heart when it comes time for your or your family’s next real estate needs.

Kari Calder is one Saskatoon's top Century 21 Fusion real estate agents. Kari can assist with all of your Saskatoon buying and selling real estate needs and she is a TRUSTED SASKATOON REALTOR

Furbaby Pet Care Guarantees Less Stress For  Your Pet. 


When you leave your pet with Jocelyn and the Furbaby Pet Care Team,  you can be sure that they are in good hands and a safe environment. 

Fido Benefits from Massage Just Like You 

Want to offer your animal the ultimate care? Just as with humans, a pet massage can improve your-four-legged friends' circulation, reduce muscle fatigue, remove toxins and maintain flexibility. It also helps condition his coat, as massage moves the skin’s natural oils through his fur. The founder of Furbaby's,  Jocelyn is a Certified Canine Massage Therapist and she will come to your home, where your pet is most comfortable. Jocelyn is not only a dog lover but a professional dedicated to her career. Growing up with dogs, spending time on a farm and having years of experience with animals who have a range of needs gave her the drive and the know-how to create a business that incorporates holistic pet care practices. She is also a Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS) and has numerous other pet education courses, but her real talent is her connection with your furbabies!


Don't take it from us - read what Furbaby's Clients had to say when we surveyed many of them as part of the Trusted Saskatoon verification process - EVERY single person we spoke to gave them 10/10 on all counts! 


Furbaby Pet Care is a wonderful pet sitting service and I can't possibly say enough wonderful things about this business Jocelyn is an amazing person, she is easy to talk to, beyond accommodating and obviously loves and adores the pets she looks after. I have used her services on more than one occasion and she has always been there to help me with anything that my pets require or need. She updated me with lots of pictures always making sure I felt my pet was in great hands. I could not have asked for a better experience/ 10/10   - Amanda Marie Isnor, Saskatoon


I believe Furbaby spend quality time with my dog and that they have gotten to know her and appreciate her for her own unique personality. They treat her like an extension of their own family and have gone out of their way offering to help get her to our vet for us while we were at work. They come to our home to help us save time, or to just take her out during the day. I love that they send pictures of her at the dog park playing with other pets they are caring for and even just getting some cuddles. It gives us peace of mind knowing she feels at home and is well taken care of when we are away. I would recommend Furbaby without hesitation.  Lindsay Fuchs, Saskatoon
