Dress up the home from the rooftop down to the snow piles and have it ready from inside out to host the perfect, festive holiday party this season. For all of the best decorating ideas, recipes and hosting tips, King Kullen Grocery has the advice and products necessary for the best holiday season yet.
Before the actual holiday party begins, make sure everything is decorated to show off some festivity. Just because some people complain about hanging up the lights doesn’t mean all decorating has to be complicated! King Kullen shares easy decoration ideas for anyone in need of a simple holiday touch in a short amount of time:
- Use mini-stockings for a utensil holder at a table setting
- Fill a vase with assorted ornaments or candy canes as a centerpiece
- Make gift bow garland by pressing ribbon down on the sticky sides of bows
- Wrap candles in ribbon for a quick and simple touch
What’s the holiday season without a little bit of tradition? Spice up those “old ways” with new twists with the help of Elf on the Shelf. Get creative with the hiding spots. This way, the adults have just as much fun as the kids!

Lists are key. Make a checklist of what needs to be done, bought, baked, decorated, etc. Checking off things is a great feeling, and it’s the best way to stay organized and avoid forgetting anything. Take some of the pressure off by baking dishes ahead of time and freezing them up until the party day or the night before, such as baked ziti, lasagna and more. Appetizers and dips can be made ahead of time too. Just prepare them a day or two before the party and heat them up the day of before guests arrive.
A self-serve station keeps things simple and easy, plus makes a great display! For drinks, appetizers and even a buffet-style dinner, this can be the perfect solution. This way, no one feels obligated to go thirsty or hungry, or track down the host to get what they need.
Add some fun to the typical order of pizza by creating crescent pizza stockings (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670936447363), which make a great appetizer. But when it comes to dinner, make sure there’s the traditional green bean casserole on the table and even a holiday honey-glazed ham (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670936447425). Don’t forget to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth with some chocolate-covered strawberry Christmas trees (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670936446852.
Nothing is more personal than a gift with a special touch. DIY gifts are perfect for friends and family. For a wine lover, try a wine bottle light by using their favorite wine bottle and filling it with lights (https://www.pinterest.com/pin/199917670936446927). For a little something sweet, fill mason jars with pre-measured dry ingredients for cookies or other baked goods. A mason jar can be themed in any way though, like beauty products with nail polish, file, remover and gems. Whatever they love, make a jar for it!
