Area Homeowner Takes Holiday Decor to the Limits
To say Angela Grego loves Christmas is an understatement. A co-owner of Summit Flooring and Turf with her husband, Kirk, Angela’s passion for the season originates with memories of her grandmother who helped raise her. The yearly traditions impressed deeply on her heart the beauty of time together and the importance of the love of family. All of those impressions were formed around the tree decorating she and her cousin did with their grandmother. So Angela favors the ornaments and decorations she inherited after her grandmother passed on.
Out of her big heart, Angela creates for her own family (which includes daughters Alexis McGhee-24, Olivia McGhee-19 and Sidney Grego-14) a true winter wonderland. This year with the help of Aileen at Alyssa’s, the family residence has touches of the season throughout every room.
Angela’s design preference focuses on the light, whimsical, jolly side of decor rather than traditional. She loves lots of lights to cast a glow and create a special holiday ambiance. You’ll find a Santa Claus in every room, because she believes the world needs someone happy like Santa. Each room gets its own theme, including for this year a beautiful woodland theme incorporating a fur tree skirt, and of course a Royals themed tree.
The Grego family tradition for Christmas Day is to spend the day all together baking, celebrating, having everyone around the (fantastically decorated) dining room table and enjoying a meal together. With so much love to give, the Gregos entertain a lot, and host one large party during the season. It’s a treat for all their guests to see the decor.
“We love sharing the joy of the season, cooking and entertaining,” says Angela. Her special touches also include enthusiastically matching the wrapping of the presents under each room’s tree to the room’s decor.
