What's Up | our favorite restaurants for holiday dining

If you have out-of-town guests during the holidays - or just want to treat yourselves to a special night out - the team at KBT have some excellent suggestions for holiday dining that treat both the palate and the eyes. Feast on the holiday decorations at our favorite spots this year.

We take out of town guests to the Boundary House in Calabash. Their salad with hot bacon dressing and sweet buttered croissants are amazing. There's something for everyone there, from prime rib to seafood. The wood walls with wooden boats in the ceiling and Christmas decor is beautiful. Bonus... right next door is Callahans of Calabash which includes a Christmas shop. The Christmas shop has lots of decorated trees of different themes. - Carey McClure, Broker/Realtor®   

We love strolling along Wilmington's Riverwalk to enjoy the holiday decorations - start with the giant Christmas tree at Market and Water Streets and make your way down along the river to Elijah's for dinner. You can sit outdoors even in December because they put up patio heaters and adjust the sides so that you can enjoy the view of the Cape Fear River without getting chilly! Elijah's decor is festive and the oysters are excellent. - Anne Rose, Director of Marketing

The Blockade Runner celebrates the holiday season with a Christmas cabaret performance by the Opera House Theatre Company and a prix fixe meal. Tables are for two, four, six, eight or ten, and this makes a special night out if you are entertaining for the holidays. - Becky Brown, KBT co-owner

Cape Fear Seafood in Monkey Junction has amazing food and a nice variety to choose from. It is a staple for NYE dinner for my friends and me. Always very good service as well, but make reservations, they fill up fast! - Kristine Roody, Transaction Coordinator

Caprice is up there for fancy holiday dining! But, ya know... Fork and Cork is a "must" for my sisters when they visit from Philadelphia! - Paul Charles, Client Services

Tips from Real Estate Experts | opt for elegant coastal decor

Elegant coastal interior in the luxury home at 2 Lindy Lane, Wrightsville Beach, NC

"Coastal elegance" may seem like an oxymoron, especially if your idea of coastal design is an interior that holds up to beach towels and sandy feet. But, with some refinement, you can create a beach-y home that leans more to elegant than casual.

Any coastal decor capitalizes on the use of the organic colors and textures of nature, and the favored blues, sea foam greens, ivory, and beige should also be your go-to colors for an elegant coastal interior. Implement this color palette in light woods, baskets, natural fiber rugs, and woven shades, while opting for textures that are more finely finished than rustic in feel. You can create an elegant coastal decorating aesthetic by simplifying and adding drama to traditional elegant decorating elements.
