Planning Your Pumpkin Carving Party

Planning Your Pumpkin Carving Party

We look for any and every excuse to get together and have fun! Life is about the small moments. As you know, Fall is all pumpkin spice and everything nice. If you can’t beat them, join ’em. Let’s get this party started!   Finding a Pumpkin There are many places throughout Lafayette, IN to get a pumpkin. Check out your local Aldi, Target, Walmart, Fresh Thyme, or Payless! There are many small business options out there too. Here’s a small list: Exploration Acres (Lafayette, IN) Dull’s Christmas Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch (Thorntown, IN) Phil’s U-Pick Apple Orchard (Huntington, IN) Congress Street United Methodist Church Pumpkin Patch   Supplies to Remember Once you’ve got your pumpkin, you’ll need to decide where to throw your party. You’ll need to account for a large working space, serving your guests. Long, farmhouse tables are perfect for this, but don’t shy away from using the floor. Your guests may feel more comfortable there anyway! If you’re the host, there are a few things to collect before the party. Pumpkin carving kits plastic table clothes or large tarps bowls to dispose of pumpkin insides tea candles pens, pencils, or sharpie markers stencils   Snacks, Snacks, Snacks Last, but not least, a pumpkin carving party needs something warm to sip on or gooey to eat.

Rising Mortgage Interest Rates!

Rising Mortgage Interest Rates!

If you have been on the fence about buying a home, now is the time to buy!  Mortgage rates are jumping, delivering a one-two punch to potential buyers already dealing with home prices that have risen sharply over the past few years. Mortgage giant Freddie Mac on Friday reported that the rate for 30-year fixed mortgages has hit a seven-year high — and experts expect home-loan rates to continue rising. Interest rates tend to increase in response to inflation, which is picking up steam for the first time in decades.   Bottom Line Whether you are a move-up buyer or first-time buyer, waiting to purchase your next home based on the belief that prices will fall because of rising mortgage rates makes no sense. It may actually be a good time for you to purchase your new home sooner rather than later.  We do not see any reason for rates to stop climbing and the cost to wait may be bigger than you may think.  You should also know that mortgage interest rates are still relatively low when you consider what they’ve been over the last 20–30 years. With interest rates on the rise, you might be considering buying sooner than later.  If you’re searching on the most popular house hunting apps, you could potentially be wasting up to 47% of your time since their data is dated.  Visit our website at www.RomanskiGroup.com for up to date property information to begin your home buying journey!

Planning your Fall Party

Planning your Fall Party

It’s Fall y’all! It’s a perfect time to host some people in your home and yard for a Fall party. Whether you’re in the Lafayette, IN city limits or on acres of land out in one of the surrounding counties, there are so many fun things to work with that you can get creative! Pumpkins, hay bales, tractors, oh my! The possibilities are endless. We’ve been known to host some fancy Fall festivities in our day, but we want to enable you to do it too! Here are a few suggestions for you to consider while planning your Fall party!   Practical Fall Party Ideas A bonfire is a must! These crisp nights compliment a fire. Outside games keep the masses entertained! This Fall theme spin on classics make your Fall party cute too! Mini pumpkin tic-tac-toe; giant, mini-pumpkin checkers; or giant jenga are all game options! What’s a party without a little friendly competition? Bobbing for apples is always a fun Fall game or maybe a donut eating contest. We’ve done these at some of our parties, and they’re a hit! Don’t forget all things soup and all things chili. Maybe you can host a chili cook off. This puts you collecting all your friends’ grandma’s recipes for your family’s future. You’re welcome. Our favorite Fall desserts are S’mores and pie. Just sayin’. More crowd involvement can happen at a make-your-own wreath station or maybe a carve-your-own jack-o-lantern station. This is a place to be creative! Square dancing? Or maybe just a good ol’ barn dance if you have a barn? Or living room dancing if you don’t. Hay...
