Entertaining On a Dime with Sam's Club {Godinger Shannon Crystal Beverage Dispenser Giveaway}

I am one of those people who loves entertaining. Even though I stress about the preparations, cooking, cleaning and more, once I see the results and the smiling faces of family and friends, it makes it all worth it.

But, let's face it. As well as being exhausting, entertaining can often end up being a complicated and expensive endeavor. When you begin to add up the costs from the food, serving ware and other necessities, suddenly you're left not only feeling tired... but that your wallet is empty.

Fortunately, there is a one-stop location dedicated to simplifying your life by offering unmatched savings on everything from food to electronics to furniture. After all, it's easy to make the most of your budget when you know to go to Sam's Club.

Offering quality, name-brand merchandise at exceptional prices, the nearly 600 Sam's Club locations are not only terrific places to save money, but also destinations for solutions that can help ease a busy schedule.

Whether stocking a pantry or a business, selecting new electronics or getting ready for a party, members know that Sam's Club is the destination for the products and services they need to keep things running smoothly.

This season, Sam's Club is here to help streamline and simplify holiday entertaining. From now through December, Sam's Club will be offering a wide array of entertaining-ware ranging from 32-piece dinnerware sets to a Wolfgang Puck stainless steel roasting pan and rack for under $25! Who doesn't want to be able to entertain at prices that low?

entertaining pieces

And that's not all. Sam's Club has numerous other ways that make entertaining on a dime possible. How about picking up a...
  • 30" Traditional Red & Green Holiday Wreath – $39.98
  • Godinger Shannon Crystal Beverage Dispenser – $49.98
  • Godinger Shannon Crystal Chesterfield 3-Tier Crystal Server – $19.98
  • Wolfgang Puck 16" Stainless Steel Roaster and Rack – $24.98
  • Keurig Signature Brewer Coffeemaker with My K-Cup Accessory & 36 K-Cup Packs – $129.98
  • Bella Professional Oval Triple Slow Cooker with Lid Rests – $39.98
  • Gibson Elite Pippa Dinnerware Set - White Porcelain - 32 pc. – $59.98

Keurig

Now that you can deck your home for less this holiday season, it's time to talk food! I'm always interested in trying new dishes, but doing so while entertaining runs the risk of ending up with a plate of appetizers that or a side dish that just might not be to your liking.

Instead, Sam's Club makes it easy to get all kinds of great ideas for your holiday menu (as well as giving your taste buds a treat) by hosting their Holiday Taste of Sam's Club event this weekend!

Holiday Taste of Sam's Club

Today through Sunday, November 18th, members have the opportunity to sample all of the best flavors of the season right at Sam's Club. From cheeses to meats to desserts (and much more), you won't want to miss out on a delicious few days that will leave your stomach happy and your holiday party plans finished.

To see all of Sam's Club's holiday entertaining deals, visit SamsClub.com and be sure to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be prepared for an especially stylish season of holiday entertaining, because...

One lucky person will win a Godinger Shannon Crystal Beverage Dispenser from Sam's Club (ARV $49.98)!
