The 2015 KDI Open House

This month, we celebrated another amazing year at The King's Daughters Inn with our annual open house! Throughout this year, we have had some beautiful weddings, gourmet dinners and events that have knocked it out of the park! It is our vendors that make it possible for The King's Daughters Inn to shine. For this we offer our heartfelt thanks in doing this Open House.

We also take this opportunity to thank the wonderful people from a variety of Duke departments that use the Inn to put their guests, hold many events and share with everyone they know how much they appreciate the care and handling we offer to all their guests!

And as a special thanks, some of our vendors graciously provided spectacular hors d'oeuvres and tasty nibbles (by Durham Catering), mind-blowing cookies and to die for chocolate desserts (by Details Cake Design), stunning floral arrangements and uniquely beautiful centerpieces (crafted by Tre Bella) and linens that set our tables magnificently (by CE Rentals). And as a very special first, we had lighting in all our event spaces by Island Sound and Video. To say it totally changed the ambiance is an understatement! They have been added to our Recommended Vendors List!

And as a special thanks to everyone that attended, we had a drawing for a gift certificate for a one night stay at The King's Daughters Inn, a free event space rental, and 2 dozen cupcakes from Details Cake Design. The winners will be notified by email in the next few days!

Fun Ways to Beat Holiday Stress!

Our KDI Sun Porch Christmas Tree
It has been a fun and busy holiday season here at The King's Daughters Inn. However with all the holiday shopping, parties, and planning its easy to stress yourself into a tizzy! Luckily, there are lots of fun and easy ways to de-stress here in Durham. We made a list of a few of our personal favorites:

1. Walk it out- One of the fastest ways to clear your head is to step away for a moment and take a walk in the crisp winter air! The Inn is right across from Duke stunning East Campus which has a beautiful 1.7 mile path along it's brick wall.

2. Sip away the Stress- Durham was recently topped the list as "The Most Caffeinated City in the U.S.", so it's no surprise that tea and coffee are big parts of our holiday stress therapy here at KDI. We are lucky enough to be just a short walk to Respite which is always serving up some of our favorite brews.


3. Try something new- Beat the holiday blues by doing  trying out a new activity! For those who like to work out there stress try the Mid-South Fencer's Club! They has classes for kids and adults who are interested in learning the art of fencing. For our Science the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center is a great place to unwind with the whole family while learning something new.

4. Just Breathe- Take a moment to yourself to relax and remember that while the holidays can be busy, they are the time to enjoy family and friends and be merry. 

From our King's Daughters Inn family to yours- Have a Wonderful Holiday Season this year! We can't wait to show you everything we have planned for 2015 so stay tuned to the blog and our Facebook page for specials and announcements!
