According to Yasmin Mekki of Kenzy Gifts & Décor (1849 Green Bay Rd, Highland Park, 847-780-4177), adding a few trends to your holiday décor is the perfect way to set the mood.
“This year, we are seeing a lot of attention to detail. Add some flowers and small details to everything, to your table setting and buffet table. For example, add small signs that say ‘Thankful’ with little pumpkins and fall leaves, and you’ve totally created a look perfect for Thanksgiving.”
She also said that Hanukkah tables are looking even better than ever. Kenzy Gifts & Décor now has even more offerings with Judaica details.
For those who celebrate Christmas, plaid is the way to set the stage. Intersperse plaid table settings or a bit of plaid home décor – or even add in a ginger bread cookie platter with a touch of plaid. Another fun way to add details to any holiday table are pieces from the Nora Fleming collection. Nora is an Illinois native who designs a variety of entertaining pieces, like platters and serving boards, with interchangeable figurines that you can swap out for every holiday and occasion throughout the year.
Yasmin and her team work one-on-one with their customers to make sure their holidays are a success, from finding the right pieces to update an old china pattern to handpicking the perfect gifts.
