A few months back I attended a holiday event with my fellow Walmart Moms in Bentonville, Arkansas. There we were given a sneak peek of some of the Holiday decor and outfits for the entire family that is now available at Walmart. After attending the event, I visited my local Walmart store to find pieces that would be perfect to add to my wardrobe for the holiday season plus the supplies I needed to create a simple table centerpiece for a holiday party inspired by the lovely folks at Better Homes and Gardens.
First, let’s talk fashion. As I mentioned before, December is an extremely busy month. Going to various holiday events requires not only festive but also comfortable clothing. I wanted to find pieces that I could add to my existing wardrobe that would not only work during the holidays but also throughout winter as well. The first item I wanted to add to my holiday wardrobe was a cozy sweater. Sweaters are a must because they bring some much needed warmth into a wardrobe. But I didn’t want just any sweater, I wanted something a little bit different from traditional and I think I found it. This Faded Glory Print Flyaway Chevron Sweater ($14.96) not only feels like a cozy sweater but it is also open so one can easily take it on and off depending on the temperature. This sweater would be beautiful paired with black leggings.
Last for fashion I knew I needed some boots. I like short boots and was shocked to find these Faded Glory Western Boots at Walmart on Rollback for just $9.00. These black boots will go with a lot during the holidays. With the tiny heel they can easily be dressed up or down. Did I mention they are comfortable? These boots are so comfortable and would look adorable with many holiday outfits. I love when I love when I find a good deal on cute apparel at Walmart.
So I’ve added two must-have pieces to my holiday wardrobe: a cozy sweater and comfortable boots. Now let’s talk entertaining. I mentioned in a previous post some ways to get your home ready for holiday guests. Well during the holiday event at Walmart, the folks at Better Homes and Gardens shared an easy way to create a table centerpiece using their 3 remote controlled candle set. I knew I wanted to recreate this at home for my own holiday table. So I grabbed the few items that I needed from my local Walmart. To create a simple table centerpiece for a holiday party all you need is simple white plate. I used a white, square plate from the Better Homes and Gardens line at Walmart. Then place the 3 remote controlled candles in the center. Lastly, decorate around the candles to match your holiday decor. Better Homes and Gardens showed us how they used real, fresh cranberries around the candles. Since we decorate for the holidays with more sparkle and shine, I found some metallic poinsettias, glittered berries, and frosted pinecones in the floral department in my local Walmart store. I removed the stems and just placed them around the candles. This is such a cute centerpiece and I love that the candles are remote controlled. I can easily turn them on and off without having to worry about a flame.
