Holiday Home Tips from FOX 47 and Menards

CREATED Dec. 18, 2013

Planning for the holiday season can be stressful and there are several questions homeowners have about being prepared.

When it comes to the holidays, decorating the home can really put everyone in the holiday spirit. But questions often arise: what options are out there for decorating for the holidays? Should I use real greenery or go the artificial route? Where can I find everything that I need? 

And in thinking beyond the holiday season, homeowners in Michigan know that it's important to be prepared for the possibility of snow fall, power outages, and dropping temperatures.

Andrew Ward of Menards Lansing West location walked us through these topics and more, giving tips for all homeowners considering these types of questions.

Although we haven't had our first big winter storm of the season, Andrew tells us it's never too soon to be prepared. If you don't want to spend another cold moment in the house without power after a storm, investing in a generator might give you peace of mind heading into the winter seas. It is also important to stock up on toiletries, batteries, and food, to keep the family comfortable, safe and entertained. 

Watch the video to get all of Andrew's tips and view the gallery to see what Menards has to offer for the holidays. 

We hope you have a safe and happy winter season!
