If you haven’t checked out the options for upscale living at Belmont at Park Bridge in Alpharetta, Georgia, be prepared to be bowled over at the amenities offered!
With private patios and balconies, outside storage closets and incredibly pet-friendly stations throughout the community, Belmont at Park Bridge affords its residents beautifully landscaped grounds and luxurious spaces for leisure. And along with that, the Idea Specialists™ at Belmont at Park Bridge are always on hand to provide quality of life suggestions and ideas!
In keeping with the bowled over theme, they’ve decided the focus of this month’s blog should be —you guessed it—bowls!!
Form & Function
From our first cereal bowls to our grandma’s mixing bowls, bowls are part of our memories. They can be pretty, they are certainly functional, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and patterns.
Apartment Therapy, always informative, has a great piece on how to use bowls in all manner of ways. The Idea Specialists™ have long been fans of using wooden bowls to hold keys and spare change by the front door, and ceramic ones for lipsticks and the like in the bathroom.
They also love the convenience of having a kitchen counter garden with herbs and greens in a large metal bowl—healthy and pretty!
And speaking of healthy, they’re all about some all-in-one bowl meals like the ones the Food Network has featured in “24 Wholesome Bowls to Power Your Day.” Chicken quinoa bowl? Yes, please! Bacon and broccoli rice bowl with fried egg? We know what our new go-to breakfast is going to be!
Fun & Funky
Looking for some fun and funky options? Check out Uncommon Goods for everything from bowls made of record albums to sculptural bowls that could be featured in an art museum.
It’s football season, so of course the Idea Specialists™ at Belmont at Park Bridge have some ideas about tasty treats to share in bowls on game day, whether you’re tailgating onsite or on sofa! This month, they’re linking to What the Fork for some recipes for gluten-free goodies like jalapeno poppers and loaded “totchos.” Yummy!
Here are some convenient links to key college football schedules:
While it might still feel like summer outside a lot of the time, the fall and winter holidays will be here before we know it. The Belmont at Park Bridge Idea Specialists™ have scoped out a couple of possibilities for you to go ahead and put on your calendar, starting with this year’s North Georgia Running Company Thanksgiving Day Gobble Wobble. The starting gun for the 10K will fire at 7:45 Thursday, November 24, 2022, at 7:45 a.m.; the one for the 5K at 8 a.m.; and the Kids 1K Fun Run will start at 9:15 a.m.
Another is booking a little December getaway to Barnsley Resort in Adairsville, where festive décor and more than 1 million lights adorn historic manor house ruins and an English-inspired village throughout the winter holiday season. Their Light Up the Holidays promotion includes luxurious inn and cottage accommodations, a $50 activity credit, and the resort’s exclusive Woodlands candle. Spa treatments, clay shooting, axe throwing, horseback riding, golf on the Fazio Course, or just a walk about the grounds—there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Here at home, the Alpharetta Holiday Market is set for Saturday, December 10, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Alpharetta Community Center. And you’ll have two chances to see Santa Claus that day—first at the Market, where you can get a free photo with the jolly old elf from 10 a.m. to noon, and then at his cozy North Pole-inspired village at Avalon as the day goes on. Ho-ho-ho!
