The scoop on the two-day soiree that comes with major discounts.

Have you ever wondered what it’d be like to spend your entire weekend at Ikea? Come November, dedicated shoppers can call their local store home all weekend-long by attending their Celebrate Your Way event: a two-day soiree to help prepare customers for the most stressful time of the year. On Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12, 2017, Ikea will be hosting holiday-inspired workshops, leading crafts and activities for kids (and adults), as well as sampling festive foods. The Swedish retailer will also be offering a handful of special in-store discounts on entertaining essentials.

Naturally, you’ll want to kick-off your visit browsing the floors—seeing that all participating shoppers can snag a coupon to take $25 off any $150 in-store purchase upon entry. In addition to Ikea’s chic winter line that we’re craving right now, customers will also enjoy discounts on furnishings and kitchenware items that help get your home ready for holiday hosting. Their FENOMEN candles, all HEMNES living room furniture, and upholstered dining chairs are just a few products that will be 20% off.


Because it’s never safe to shop on an empty stomach, ravaged customers can take a break at the Ikea Restaurant and Swedish Food Market where they can save on lunch favorites and sample drink recipes that are perfect for holiday parties—from mulled wine to elderflower spritzer.

We’re most excited, however, for the Scandi store’s holiday-inspired workshops that let you brush up on your entertaining skills. Hands-on classes that we’re pumped to try include an art of napkin folding workshop, a session on setting the table for winter, and—probably the most practical—a ‘Help! My guests are arriving in 5 minutes’ workshop.

There will also be plenty of classes and crafts for kiddos and families to enjoy together, like gingerbread cookie decorating. Plus, IKEA FAMILY members will have all-day access to complimentary coffee and can receive a free gift if you’re one of the first 250 members to show your card on arrival.

The ‘Celebrate Your Way’ event will run from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. You can learn more about the event and offers at each local Ikea store here.
