Holiday Trends – Inside & Out

The “H” word (rimes with “smoliday”) can be scary. Especially when summer seems so recent, and snow so ominous (to some). But with Halloween now past, it’s time to move other festive planning to the forefront.

To me, it’s a great season—especially for those who like to decorate. Special candles, garland, and more can be put in place weeks in advance and enjoyed before and after specific celebrations.

For that push you may need to start getting into the spirit and channeling ideas, try Bachman’s holiday trend event (5:30-8 p.m.) this Wednesday in Minneapolis. Susie Bachman and Minnesota Monthly Lifestyle Editor Katie Dohman are each leading trend and decorating demonstrations, which you can enjoy while sipping wine and sampling treats. Then you’re set loose on the store with a 15 percent discount—which is good on all products, even those already on sale.

Sounds to me like a good way to kick things into gear! Tickets are just $5, and are donated to the Emergency Foodshelf Network. Minnesota Monthly is sponsoring the event, so head to their site to register. Seats are filling fast, so first come, first serve.
