10 Ways to Save Time This Month by Danny’s Upholstery
Decorate! Entertain! Shop! Ship! These simple tips will help you feel less rushed this holiday season.
Edible Accents Display a simple table centerpiece of nuts or fresh fruit. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:It doubles as a snack tray for quick on the go after school snacks or the nuts could double as a snack tray for company.
Color Convenience Choose one go-with-everything color-such as white, silver, or gold-for gift bows. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip: Also a great idea when reupholstering your dining room chairs, living room furniture, cushions or custom window treatments.With so many upholstery fabrics to choose from, keeping a consistent theme throughout your home can sometimes save time and money. Stop by our showroom for a full selection of fabric samples or visit www.greenhousefabrics.com. Danny’s Upholstery in Virginia Beach is offering 25% Off Any Greenhouse Fabric Order and can ship fabric directly to you.
Points of View Limit decorations to the places guests see. Hang a wreath on the door, put a candle in the powder room, and use festive napkin rings on the table. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:Need a quick change, swap out decorative pillows. Can’t find something you like? Danny’s Upholstery can create them for you. For a free estimate, call 757-363-5889.
Purchase Prep Keep two things with you: a notebook listing recipients’ names and gifts purchased, and an envelope for receipts. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:Also jot down quick phone numbers and keep a list of items that need to be picked up prior to the holidays. Did you know that Danny’s Upholstery offers a free pick up and delivery service for their customers?
No-Fuss Fruit Make mantel decorations using glass cylinder vases filled with fresh cranberries or limes. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:Keep it simple, your family and friends want to spend time with you, not your decorations.
Package Deal Use the United States Postal Service’s flat-rate boxes to ship gifts. The boxes are free, and you can order them online. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:Flat-rate boxes & envelopes come in different sizes; to save money, use the smallest one possible. We like to keep a few of the various sizes in stock since they fold flat and don’t take up much space.
Quick-Clean Routine Skip whole-house cleaning before a party. Just swipe surfaces, vacuum, and hide clutter. One exception: the bathroom guests will use. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:Check out our blog at http://dannysupholstery.blogspot.com/ for some quick upholstery cleaning tips.
Greens for the Season For free and easy decorations, snip greenery from your yard. Spruce, holly, fir, juniper, and arborvitae can stay green for weeks in a house that is not too warm or dry. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:If you have children or pets, don't use greenery with poisonous berries such as holly, yew, ivy, Jerusalem cherry, bittersweet, crown of thorns - or mistletoe. Also, it is best to use free greenery 1-2 weeks prior to the holiday, a helpful hint is to soak the greenery in a tub overnight to give it time to soak up the water to help keep it fresh longer.
Flexible Gifts Avoid being caught empty-handed. Stock up on a gift that can be given to just about anyone, such as a kitchen gadget, set of dish towels, or reusable bag for groceries. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:We have a gift certificate special! For every $50 you spend, we will give you $10 more. For more details or to purchase yours, call 757-363-5889.
On a Schedule Take advantage of extended store hours; shop first thing in the morning or late at night to avoid long waits. Danny’s Upholstery Bonus Tip:Our hours are M-F 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and Saturday, 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Additional hours are available by appointment.
