Friday’s Favorite Finds: PRETTY IN PINK DECOR AND ENTERTAINING ESSENTIALS FROM HOMEGOODS

Happy Friday, guys! I’m thrilled that the long-awaited spring weather is finally here – at least I hope so! The weather has changed so drastically from day-to-day, one never knows. I plan on soaking up the sun and enjoying the outdoors this weekend. One thing on my to-do list is to stop by Target tomorrow to check-out the Hunter rain boots. I’m also planning on shooting some fun content for next week – stay tuned for that!

For today’s favorite finds, I’m sharing a few items I picked up last week from my favorite store ever…. HomeGoods! I thoroughly enjoy wandering the aisles – I often find the just the right decor piece or entertaining essential for our home. You can’t beat the affordable prices too! I scored great pieces and it just so happened that all the items I purchased are all pink.

For as long as I can remember, faux flowers were not my thing. However, faux flowers are coming a long way from looking and feeling like the real thing. These gorgeous pink peonies are not made out of silk. These peony stems came in a pack of three. I had to cut the stems so that I can fit it nicely in a smaller vase.

I regret not getting another bouquet so that I can make a larger arrangement. Perhaps I’ll get lucky and find some more!

Another great find at HomeGoods are these pink ombre drinking glasses. They are so pretty with the gold rim and are perfect for entertaining in the spring and summer months.  Can’t wait to use them on a tablescape! If you are interested in these gold-foil cocktail napkins, check out this post.

How stunning is this pink alabaster 2-tier dessert serving tray?! Perfect to use for tea parties or showcasing sweet confections.

I also found this pink vase. You can’t see it in this picture but the outer opening of the vase is cut to resemble a bloomed tulip.

Do you have a favorite item from today’s post? Which item do you hope to find at your local HomeGoods?

Have a great weekend, friends!

FRIDAY’S FAVORITE FINDS: Cocktail Entertaining Essentials

Happy Friday! It’s been a bit difficult to get back into the swing of things this week after being on a week vacation. To top it off, I’m now coming down with a cold – I guess coming from warm 80 degree weather to a chilly 50 degree can do that to you.

While in Florida, I visited the cutest gift shop. The store was filled with all my favorite things…scented candles and entertaining essentials. Below is a few of the items I picked up – perfect for hosting a spring/summer gathering. Cocktails anyone?

Happy Friday! What are your plans this weekend? The countdown begins for us as we head on vacation next week…can’t wait!

Well, it’s that time of week where I round up my favorite finds from around the web. This week’s finds range from home décor, an office essential and a couple of yummy looks treats.

FRIDAY'S FAVORITE FINDS

How pretty is this Bert the Peacock Gold Spoon Rest? I would need a swoon-worthy kitchen to display such a grand-looking spoon rest so I’m thinking it would be pretty to display on a bar/bar cart and place chocolate truffles or mints. It would look great on a desk where you can house your gold paper clips or even display your business cards. How about using it as a catch all for your everyday jewelry? It’s pretty enough to just display as is, on a stack of books too. Oh, how I love the many uses!

I love white décor – bonus is when it is accented with a bit of gold. This Blanc Hobnail Tealight Holder with its milky white mercury finish is beautiful. Whether you have only one displayed on your coffee table tray or grouped together on a tablescape – the gorgeous finish would add just the right amount of chic.

 

FRIDAY'S FAVORITE FINDS

As of late, I’ve been a fan of matches housed in pretty glass containers. Having matches conveniently displayed near your candle is ideal and it’s trending to be the décor essential for your home. I’m loving these Capri Blue Iridescent Matches. I think any of these bottles would look great on a tray that sits on kitchen counter or island. They could also be placed in a master bath or powder room.

 

FRIDAY'S FAVORITE FINDS

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may recall when I post a pic of my wine bar cart. I had champagne gummies displayed – I’m such a fan of these candy treats. Well I just found these Merlot Wine Gummies and Rosé Wine Gummies! Guess who will be ordering these?!

 

FRIDAY'S FAVORITE FINDS

You guys know how much I love hues of pink and blush. This Poppin Blush Retractable Gel Pen set might just have to have a new home on my office desk!

Happy Friday, friends! What are your plans this weekend? We had three days of warm weather this week and just like that, last night a gush of wind came through and a dusting of snow hit the ground. We are looking forward to spending our days in sunny Florida at the end of this month! Relaxing by the pool with our long time friends – sharing plenty of laughs, eating, and sipping libations is probably what our days will look like. Fun. Fun. Fun.

For this week’s ‘Friday’s Favorite Finds’ post, I’ve rounded up four finds that you may like…

Project 62_Gold Stripe Metallic Lumbar Pillow

Found this decorative lumbar pillow at Target and it’s the exact color combination that we have in our living room. I sure am considering getting a pair of these as they would make a great addition to our accent chairs!

Happy Friday, guys! Hope you had a wonderful week and have something fun planned for the weekend, whether it’s hanging out to enjoy the warm summer weather or just a little R&R at home. Later today, we will be packing up the car with all my props and heading to an outdoor location for an inspiration shoot where I will be collaborating with some amazingly talented women. I’ll be styling a tablescape and I’m excited to see it all come together and being able to share it with you all!

Have a great weekend and enjoy a few of my favorite finds from around the web.
