Surely there's more to holiday decorating than throwing up mistletoe and calling it good.
Celebrity guest designer and HGTV Design Star winner Jennifer Bertrand has a few festive tricks up her sleeve. She'll share holiday design tips on a budget from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday during the grand opening celebration of Absolute Flooring America.
"I try to make everyone feel like their house can be cool no matter the budget," Bertrand wrote on her website, jenniferbertrand.com, "and I am lucky enough to have amazing adventures in my design life + my regular life."
After winning the Design Star competition, Bertrand hosted the HGTV show "Paint Over!" and appeared in USA Today, Life & Style and InStyle magazines. She's the national spokeswoman for Flooring America and Flooring Canada and recently became an accredited kitchen and bath designer. She's also be featured on episodes of "Military Makeover" on the Lifetime channel.
Pets for Patriots, an organization that helps veterans adopt shelter animals, will offer free portraits of pets and their owners by appointment from 10 a.m. to noon. Raffle, discounts, product demonstrations and refreshments also will be offered.
