We like to entertain during the holidays, but with three kids, we try to keep it simple and easy. Simple and easy does not need to be boring – it can be pretty fabulous with the help of Duane Reade holiday items.
I can stock up on everything I need to entertain on any of my many trips to Duane Reade. On my most recent store visit, I picked up some of my favorite foods from the Good & Delish line and other items to help make holiday entertaining more festive!
Using these beautiful ornaments, I created a centerpiece that will take me through all my entertaining for the holidays and new year.
These ornaments were buy one get one free with my Duane Reade Balance Rewards card. And – they’re shatterproof! So, when your one-year old twins manage to get a hold of one of them and decide it’s a ball (true story), you don’t have to worry.
After making my centerpiece, I even had some left to add to my tree. These ornaments are beautiful – and look just as nice, if not better, than some of my fragile glass ornaments.
When you create your holiday tablescape, always start with one focal piece to design the rest of the table around. I’ll be using my easy creation for all of my holiday entertaining!
I used my centerpiece and a framed holiday print to create a festive bar area to welcome my guests. It says, Grab a drink, take a quick snack and join the party!
I also used my centerpiece as the focal point on the table during a cocktail party. I added in other great holiday elements from Duane Reade – Good & Delish products (bridge mix, tortilla chips, crackers, chocolate covered pretzels) as well as holiday themed serving bowls, napkins, plates and candle. It makes for an easy and beautiful table.
