This year, the holidays may be a little different. Although it is not traditional, we can still try to make the best out of our situation and celebrate safely at home with our loved ones. My local Safeway has a lot of items to make shopping easier for us this year and I am thankful for that. Not only does Safeway have groceries and OWN brands that provide high quality budget-friendly alternatives to brand-name items, they also have great gifting items for the holidays so that Safeway can be our one-stop shop.
I learned a couple of tips from floral designer & chief eventeurDebi Lilly, to elevate my home as well as gifting with high-quality, affordable ‘grocery to gorgeous’ tips + tricks and wanted to share a couple of those tips with you all.
I wanted to make a holiday dessert bar featuring crazy cake sundaes. I think my family loved the idea of a sundae bar that I had made a couple of months back so I decided to make crazy cake sundaes using debi lilly design™’s Alpine frost bouquet as a centerpieces for my holiday sundae bar at home to bring some holiday cheer during these times.
Here are some items I bought for my holiday crazy sundae bar- at home:
Signature SELECT™ Ice Cream Sandwich, Peppermint
Ice Cream flavor of your choice
Signature SELECT™ Seasonal Cheesecake Platter
Open Nature® Almonds, sliced
Signature SELECT™ Mini Chocolate Chips (semi sweet)
Signature SELECT™ Mini Marshmallows
Signature SELECT™ Sugar Cones
O Organics® Pumpkin Pie Spice
Lucerne® Whipped Topping, Pumpkin
debi lilly design™ Alpine frost bouquet
To make a crazy sundae, I chopped the ice cream sandwich and cheesecakes into bite-sized pieces. If you are not a fan of peppermint, they also have an eggnog flavor as well. I scooped some ice cream (I used vanilla since we will be adding a lot of different seasonal flavors) & added the chopped peppermint ice cream sandwiches, chopped cheesecakes into a bowl. Then I added various toppings such as almonds, chocolate chips, marshmallows. I topped the sundae off with pumpkin whipped cream & with a dusting of pumpkin spice. I also added a sugar cone on top to give it some texture.
For decoration, I used the debi lilly Alpine frost bouquet. I chopped and dropped the bouquet and separated them into smaller bouquet arrangements to make it more festive. I think a dessert bar is something we all could use for the holidays and it was easy to put together and it was great that I only had to make a stop at Safeway to get all the items.
I shopped at Safeway, but you can also find all these items at the Albertsons Companies family of stores, including Albertsons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Randalls, Shaw’s Supermarket, Star Market, Tom Thumb and Vons.
If you are unable to go to the store, or want to avoid the crowds during the busy holiday season, Safeway also offers Grocery Delivery and DriveUp & Go™ for convenient ways to shop.
I hope you liked these tips! I hope everyone has a safe holiday season. Let me know in the comments what your holiday is looking like this year!
