Sourdough Health Benefits for the Holiday Season
Fourth of July Fun at Home
The 4th of July is soon approaching and everyone in the country will be celebrating! On this day we celebrate this wonderful country’s independence and all of the men and women who work hard to maintain that freedom for us. And when you are a resident of Cornerstone Homes, it's so easy to feel the spirit of independence with friends and family in your neighborhood and at home. Break out the sparklers and get the grill ready because it's time to let loose and have a good time!
Celebrate In the Community
Cornerstone Homes communities offer so many amenities that it's easy to enjoy the holiday without having to lift a finger. Put on your most festive swim attire and meet neighborhood friends at the pool for an afternoon of sunshine and laughter. Swing by the clubhouse to see what your neighbors are up to - you may catch an entertaining round of pickleball, cornhole on the activity lawn, or cards. You may even want to check with your specific community to see if they're planning a celebration — like a potluck at the clubhouse — that you can contribute to. In the evenings, seeing a fireworks display will be as easy as stepping outside your front door, since someone in the neighborhood is sure to put on a show!
Enjoy Activities at Home
If you're planning to host a gathering, there's no better place than in your beautiful new Cornerstone home! With open-concept layouts, large kitchen islands, and private courtyard patios, your home will be welcoming and comfortable for everyone.
Space for Friends and Family
When your kitchen overlooks your dining room, which then flows right into your great room, entertaining is easy and fun! No more preparing food hidden away in the kitchen while your guests enjoy a good time without you. With an open-concept floor plan, you're always front and center of the party, no matter what tasks you're tending to. And with spacious second bedrooms and flex spaces, there's room for guests to feel right at home.
Large Kitchen Islands
Serve party food buffet-style right on your kitchen island! No need to bring in special serving trays or use up valuable table space. Your granite island is big enough to fit finger sandwiches, chips, dips, dessert, and any other tasty treats. If you opted for optional cabinets in the dining area, you also have a space to serve festive drinks!
Private Courtyard Patio
The perfect place to relax and enjoy the south's best barbecue (yours!), your private courtyard is the ultimate 4th of July party pad. Decorate it with lights and colorful streamers and enjoy your day in the sun!
Cook Fun Recipes
Of course you'll have barbecue, potato salad, hamburgers, hot dogs, and the usual 4th of July favorites, but try these fun red, white, and blue-themed recipes to raise the fun factor!
