A Visit to the HGTV Holiday House

December 12, 2012

On our annual Christmas shopping day at the Mall of America with one of my BFFs – we’ve doing this every year since the mall opened! – we took time to visit the HGTV Holiday House.  HGTV has set up a modern-day, life-size gingerbread house in the mall’s rotunda.  They offer daily demonstrations and on certain days, celebrities stop by to sign autographs.

After getting a GIANT shopping bag, you can get your photo taken with  my, and I bet yours too, favorite brothers!

 

 

 

There is an amazing holiday light show at 1:00, 5:00 and 8:00.  We were fortunate enough to be on the 2nd floor for the show.  Photos don’t do it justice (and I took them with my iPhone).  It’s truly spectacular!

The Holiday House is open every day from November 23rd through January 1st, from 11:00 – 8:00.

In the mall, there is also an HGTV Home pop-up showroom featuring HGTV Home furniture, paint, flooring, lighting and plants.  They packed a lot into a small space.

I love this look.  It reminds me of a casual, beach home.  Winter in Minnesota has me dreaming of warm places.

Both spots offer the opportunity to sign-up for numerous drawings.  Keeping my fingers crossed. . .  :)
