Don't Let that Christmas Tree Ruin your Hardwood Floor!

Posted on December 16th, 2014 by slaughterbeckHW

Christmas trees can damage your hardwood floor with scratches, sap stains and water spots. Follow these handy tips to make sure you don't have to hire Slaughterbeck Floors to sand and refinish your whole floor for the New Year!

- Before bringing the tree into your home shake it, gently, to help get rid of some of the loose needles that could be stepped on causing scratching.

- You may drag the tree on an upside down bathmat rather than carry the tree to minimize needles dropping on your floors.

- On the tree's location : put down an old folded sheet or blanket first to protect the floor. Then put plastic (such as a cheap plastic tablecloth) over the old sheet/blanket to protect from water damage. Finally, put the Christmas tree stand on top of the plastic.

Decorate a Room in Campbell's Ainsley House for the Holidays!

Posted on September 11th, 2014 by DCBA

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the popular "Holidays at the Ainsley House." Each year, businesses and organizations decorate rooms in Campbell's 1925 Ainsley House around a particular theme.

This year, you are invited to help us celebrate the holidays by decorating an Ainsley House room in a theme inspired by the 1920s and 30s. Hurry, only three rooms remain available: the guest bedroom and dressing room, Mrs. Ainsley's dressing room and bathroom, and the half-bath in the foyer.

There is no cost to participate. The museum provides a pre-lit tree for each room (minus the half-bath), and in-room signage to recognize each business/organization who decorated. Each business/organization also gets a half-page ad in the holiday program and exposure through the Museum's media outreach.

Please contact Anna Rosenbluth at annar@cityofcampbell.com for decorating guidelines and more information.
