My Decorating Holiday Hack & OREO Candy Cane Bark Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of NABISCO Cookies and Crackers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

The holidays can be a pretty hectic time and especially when it comes to entertaining. I try to find shortcuts that give me more time to spend with my family and make the holiday less stressful. Whether it’s how I decorate for the annual Christmas party, how I make cleanup easier, or what I choose to serve, you have to realize it’s all done to either save me time or money or sometimes both. I’m sharing my favorite holiday hack with you and I’ll also share one of the recipes from our dessert bar. Present Art1

Decorating Holiday Hack

With all the cookies, candy, and other fun concoctions I make all holiday season decorating for that holiday party can sometimes get overlooked. However, through the years I found some quick hacks that make it a bit easier. I’ve never really had a big budget for decorating so I had to find other ways to make things really stand out. One of the things I do is take down all the art work around the house and “wrap” it with wrapping paper, put a bow on it and call it a decoration! It’s cheap and makes your whole house feel festive! You can be really creative too and color theme your rooms and even do the kids room in their favorite holiday wrapping paper. We always get tons of comments on it and it’s fun, easy, and inexpensive.
