Deck the Halls
A holiday party without holiday decorations is just a party in December (not a bad time, but unworthy of the moniker all the same). If guests show up to find your pad barren of lights, candles, trees, ornaments or other seasonal brikabrak, the entire magic of the evening will be lost.
Don’t worry; of course, Costco has you covered on the budget bling. Decorations tend to be included in the store’s seasonal sale, so you might even score a last minute deal, but even at full price, a 100-pack of Sylvania Color Changing LED string lights is a steal at $13.
Decorations Total: $13
