The holiday season is a busy time of year, with lots of get-togethers, parties and events. Whether hosting or attending, King Kullen makes it easy to plan ahead and get ready for a smooth celebration. This year, King Kullen is offering their customers advice and tips on how to get the most out of the holiday season, with fun decorating ideas, meal options and more.
Getting the house ready for holiday guests can sometimes be a challenge, but a few simple tricks can turn the home into a winter wonderland. Start with a festive centerpiece. One easy idea is to place candles on a platter and surround them with jingle bells, peppermints, holly or mini-ornaments. Whatever is on hand can make a great addition.
Turn items around the house into holiday gifts by simply tying a bow around them. This can look great on solid-color pillows and across windows. Use scrapbook paper to make a cone-shaped tree to display on a tabletop. Easy and inexpensive, this is a great way to decorate a room quickly.
The holiday season is a great time to get crafty, too. Try making ornaments instead of buying them this year. This will save money, and they’re sure to mean a lot more when they’re handmade by someone special. They also make great gifts for loved ones. Try making these swirl ornaments: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670934514737/ or use popsicle sticks for these creations: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670934523943/.
