Happy weekend everyone! I’m excited about this post! I picked up some cute things for my home from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and have had time to style and use everything. I really feel like I scored on some good deals this year and I’m especially excited to show you how I spruced up our guest bathroom! (Haven’t shared that space on the blog yet.. sneak peek at the end of this post!) I always find one or two fun home items each year from the sale but this year there were LOTS of fun things I was excited about. First score from the sale.. the boards! I picked up a few of the Hello Lovely Marble and Brass Cheese Boards for gifts. I always use this sale to get a jump start on holiday shopping and I’m always so happy that I did when December rolls around and things are crazy busy. This board is so perfect to give to friends/teachers, etc. You could pair it with a holiday treat or give it on its own.
These two Treasure and Bond Boards are also beautiful! I’m honestly shocked they haven’t sold out yet. The sizes are perfect for entertaining.
And of course they look great anywhere in the kitchen doubling as decor.
Remember the beautiful Charcuterie Board my friend helped me put together last November for my PJ Christmas party? I love that board but to be honest.. it’s HUGE and kind of impractical. Perfect for a once a year party (when I have a friend to help me style food!). But I really wanted something I could use more often.
Now this is more my style. Ha. Every day food my kids will actually eat on a less intimidating size of board! This extra large wood cheese board is the perfect size to pull out and make a summer snack for kids and friends to enjoy.
My board might not be quite as Pinterest worthy but it does make animal crackers and other every day snacks look a little more fun to eat. :)
El was giving me a hard time and laughing at me because I was so proud of my snack board even though it looks nothing like the beautifully styled Charcuterie boards I pulled for inspiration. Food has never been my strong suit as we all know. :) But everyone loved it and devoured it in no time so I’m calling it a win!
Especially since the wood boards look so good displayed in my kitchen and that snack took me all of 10 minutes to pull together from everything we had in our fridge and pantry. ;)
This round marble and wood serving board is on sale for such a great deal. It’s a nice, large size (heavy!) and amazing quality. Another fun option for decor and entertaining.
I put it below my styled shelves for now and am excited to use it when I decorate for Fall.
This Marble and Wood Lazy Susan is another favorite that I ordered. It’s backordered so it hasn’t come in yet (both of these marble boards are backordered and going quick!). This can be used in so many ways. For food obviously. But also on your table or kitchen island holding a vase and flowers or next to the stove holding salt and pepper and spoons and olive oil. Styling options GALORE. I can’t wait to get it and play with it in my kitchen!
Marble coasters are my favorite and this set of 4 is so beautiful for just $20. I always like to just have 3 out at a time. Groups of 3 look good when you’re decorating. I’ll have to share more examples of that in a post. A good decor tip!
And that’s El on the couch asleep under our Bliss blankets. She cracks me up. Always covers her head like this to sleep! I always check on her to make sure she’s still breathing. :)
We turned on a movie after a busy morning in the hot sun yesterday and had some nice down time together. Summer afternoons like this with my kids all home are my favorite. It’s so rare that we are all home like this with just us. Activities and friends and running non-stop is our norm and I love that too, but quiet time at home with just my three kids always makes me so happy.
These Bliss throws are still on sale for about one more week! I ordered another navy throw because I’m going to use navy again for my fall decor and I have navy in every room of my house at the moment. I’m getting excited to get the pumpkins out before long! Anyone else?
I always get questions about this throw because on-line it looks peach so people can’t find it, but it’s actually a really pretty soft pink. The color is “pink peony.” I know I’m repeating myself on this one so sorry about that! But it’s a popular question that comes up often.
The other two throws I picked up at the sale this year are theses two! Not styled obviously because I bought them for our theatre room. (Which I’m so sorry I still haven’t shared.. I took pics last week and just need time to go through them!) The black and white blanket looks so good styled! I love the texture and the tassels hanging off of a chair or couch, but it’s not the softest. The Barefoot Dreams throw is a hot item on sale this year and I have to admit.. it really is crazy soft. Just like the cardigans that are also on sale! Not as good for decorating but so fun to snuggle up with for a movie. Although funny sidenote.. I was so excited to bring home the Barefoot Dreams throw to show my girls and they like the Bliss throws better! They love the soft, fuzzy feel of them so for us the $25 throw beats out the $100 throw this year. :)
This is a little peek of our guest bathroom. It connects our guest room and my husband’s office and don’t ask me why I haven’t shared pics of it before now! I’m going to share a full post on this room soon but wanted to give you a peek of it because I picked up the cutest towels for it from the sale!
They are really soft towels. I bought two sets and am so excited about the personality they added to this bathroom! I’ll share more pics next week! (My shower curtain sold out but how cute is this cute similar shower curtain!? Also on sale and I love it!) :)
So many fun home decor items on sale! I shared a few other favorites in the collage below. Happy decorating and enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
