Spring & Summer Around Saratoga Finishing Touches Style

Written by: Shelly Walker

May 5th, 2023

With light at the end of the tunnel , as far as cold, rainy weather (we hope), it is now time to start looking ahead towards all of the fun spring & summer events that are going to be popping up around Saratoga in the near future. Farmers markets are back in different locations around town.

Let’s all get out there and visit them and help support our local farmers and artisans! There is a plethora of fresh meats, vegetables, eggs, flowers as well as home cooked meals, treats for pups, jewelry and much much more!

Congratulations to all of the soon to be graduates out there – Graduation parties are on tap to start happening soon. Craft fairs, antique shows and artist open houses are among the fun family activities we can all attend. And wedding season is also upon us!

Concerts and the NYC Ballet are scheduled at SPAC. And of course the 2023 racing meet is on track to open in July at the Saratoga Race Course with upgraded amenities! This is very exciting news for all of us in and around the Saratoga area! This is great not only for us to be able to attend these events but for all of the businesses that rely on more people eating out, staying at hotels and shopping at our small businesses.

Is your house ready for all the festivities?

Let's Talk Curb Appeal

How about an updated front porch to make guests feel they can come for a visit to catch up after a long, cold winter. Look for comfortable furniture to coordinate with the style of your house: sofas, chairs, end tables and an ottoman or two to put your feet up on after a long day. Outdoor lamps, an area rug and throw pillows will cozy up the space and make friends and family feel relaxed and comfortable. Add wreaths and florals for great pops of color! Maybe a quick change to your existing exterior sconces and updated landscaping are needed. Whether it’s a few small changes or a complete update, the team at Finishing Touches can help you achieve the look you have been dreaming about.

Let's Talk Summer Entertaining

Are you hosting a fun track party, an anniversary party or even a wedding?

Let’s get your house and yard ready!

Fun facts about Finishing Touches you may not know: We provide design services for outdoor kitchens, dining and living areas. This includes a floor plan of the space and selection of all materials needed for the outdoor kitchen (grill, sink, faucet, stone, countertop, etc.) as well as furniture selection, area rugs, lamps, pillows and outdoor lighting. Get outside and start living in your outdoor spaces! We also provide decorating services for parties and help with planning all aspects of what will be needed. We will walk the property with you to get a thorough understanding of the theme of the party, select all of the decorations, including: candles, flowers, lighting, tables, chairs, linens, napkins, tableware, dishes and glasses. We will coordinate food and desserts with the theme of the party and install all decorations. Outdoor curtains are another specialty of ours. They add another layer of elegance to an outdoor party.

Let's Talk Indoor Decorating

Along with outdoor curtains, we carry an assortment of much needed indoor window treatments to provide the function you need on all of your windows: blinds (electronic or manual), shades (cellular, silhouettes or the more modern banded roller shade), custom draperies, valances and cornices. We will help you select the best option for you.

Let's Talk Real Estate

Did you know that home staging sells houses faster and for more money? We are not strangers to the staging world; we have been doing it for 20 years! We bring in furniture, area rugs, artwork and accessories if the house is empty or rearrange existing pieces and make suggestions on possible new paint colors and any updates needed. This will make the house feel more like a home without all of the personal photos and accessories that distract potential new home buyers.

If you are just looking for some ideas, stop by our shop located at the 4 corners of the Publik House, The Ripe Tomato, Malta Farm and Garden and Finishing Touches/Cookies and Cream (the corner of Route 9 and East High St. in Malta) and browse our selection of furniture, home décor items and unique gifts for all occasions. We also provide custom gift baskets for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. Reach us at 518-584-1490 or email us at with any questions. We are currently open Tuesday - Saturday 10 AM – 5 PM, closed Sun/Mon.

Don’t miss our sidewalk sale coming up May 16 – 20, Up to 40% off!! Accent furniture, frames, candles, pillows, art, mirrors, outdoor area rugs, tableware and much much more!!!
