First Annual Prairie Holidays: Spreading Joy and Cheer at the End of the Year



New Home, New Traditions

At Painted Prairie, we feel that anytime you move to a new home, become part of a new community, and settle into your new routines, that this is the perfect time to start new traditions. This holiday season, everyone at Painted Prairie worked to bring a bit of holiday joy and cheer to our first-year “pioneers.”

We creatively celebrated the holiday season by giving our residents unique experiences throughout the month of December to help them enjoy their holidays while maintaining clear social distancing standards. Our celebration of the holiday season kicked off with carolers and holiday lantern deliveries to all first-time residents, followed by special delivery emails to (virtually) welcome the holidays.

RECIPE: FLUFFY EGGNOG

We raised our glasses and toasted the New Year with Painted Prairie’s Fluffy Eggnog, our signature drink recipe for the 2020 Prairie Holidays. This warm-you-to-your-toes drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) is the choice for a New Year’s Day morning sitting by the fire, watching bowl games, or visiting with neighbors—from a safe distance, of course.
