LEBANON, Tenn., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks 100 days to Christmas and Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® is ringing in the holidays early, bringing some much-needed joy at the end of a challenging year. To celebrate, Cracker Barrel is releasing four holiday-inspired virtual backgrounds so guests can deck the halls of their virtual meetings all season long.
The backdrops, which can be downloaded for use in video conferencing apps, like Zoom, each reflect one of four Christmas Collections available at Cracker Barrel and are full of unique, exclusive holiday décor items for your home that can be purchased now in-store and at shop.crackerbarrel.com. For a limited time, with every background download, guests will be gifted a 20%* discount on Cracker Barrel holiday décor items purchased online only (available now through Oct. 16, 2020, exclusions apply).
"The COVID-19 pandemic has many people reimagining how they will celebrate the holidays this year and as we kick off the countdown to Christmas, we would like to assist with the aesthetics to set the at-home feel," Cracker Barrel Senior Vice President of Retail Laura Daily said. "Decorating for the holidays is a tradition often looked forward to each year and we hope that our guests use these virtual holiday backgrounds as a way to connect with friends, family and coworkers. The backgrounds can also serve as inspiration as they prepare for the holiday season in their own homes."
Guests can choose from each of the following collection themes to express their holiday spirit:
Traditional – The Traditional Christmas Collection background evokes nostalgic feelings of holidays past, of special times spent with family and friends making memories together. This collection embodies those times with traditional red and green colors as well as vintage-inspired items featuring caroling, cardinals and the classic red truck.
Elegant – The Elegant Collection background draws upon rich design elements and features luxe fabrics as well as glittery gold and pink accents highlighting traditional Christmas icons with a modern, elegant twist.
Peace On Earth – The Peace on Earth Collection background escapes to a wintery, woodland wonderland with décor filled with fresh snow, forest friends and natural textures.
Whimsical – In the Whimsical Collection background, mid-century modern meets whimsy and is filled with bright colors and vintage appeal, featuring Rudolph and friends, the Grinch, Santa and his elves.
"People are more eager this year for the arrival of the holiday season and the opportunity to create lasting memories, so we are excited to provide our guests a bit of holiday comfort," added Daily. "We hope that our guests are as excited and inspired by these collections as we are."
