Gift Tips from This Week’s HGTV Celebrity Expert at The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

posted on October 14th, 2011 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager

What new homeowner isn’t a huge fan of HGTV? When my husband and I purchased our home, I was obsessed with watching the channel’s tips on how to decorate, so you can imagine how excited I am that HGTV personalities are now giving home entertaining seminars each weekend throughout the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. This weekend’s speaker is Erin Loechner, a featured blogger for Design Happens on, who writes about remodeling her home in the Midwest.

Erin is sharing simple homemade gift tips with guests in seminars today, Saturday and Sunday.

Wish I could be there, it sounds like a ton of fun. As for the citrus herbed salt, I would love to know the proportions of the ingredients. It sounded yummy!

Hi Dinah!

I used equal parts citrus zest and sea salt, then added the clove as a seasoning to taste. :)
