There’s lots of chatter about the end of summer and if you’re “ready for fall”. I know I’m not. We’ve had an amazing summer and the weather is still warm enough to go swimming. However, our home is always ready for fall. . So lemme know, you ready for fall or still soaking up those summer days?
Trying to finish our home renovations in time for our back yard wedding, plan said wedding and work 40+ hours a week has felt quite overwhelming to me lately! The wedding planning is what has suffered the most, but this weekend, I made some progress! 🎉🥂 . . One of my best friends and bridesmaid, @courtneylanekahn, discovered that you can do special floral orders from @traderjoes! And Y'ALL, WHO DOESN'T LOVE TRADER JOE'S?! 😍😂 . . Everything you see here will come from a special order with Trader Joe's for our wedding! Eucalyptus, gerber daisies, mini cala lillies, two different colors of spray roses and finally, larger white roses. And the best part? They are SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than anywhere else - even wholesalers. Like 30 stems of eucalyptus for over $200 through a wholesaler compared to about 4-6 stems of eucalyptus in a bunch for $2.99 at Trader Joe's. 😱😱 . . The only thing they mentioned is that when we do a special order, we can't specify what kind of floral we want if there is more than one kind offered (like for eucalyptus, we can't specify silver dollar, for example). BUT in those cases, they will order extra of everything we want and then that extra should have enough to pick what I want from that (we'll do this for the colored spray roses, too, and I assume for the gerber daises as well). . . And @traderjoes, shout out to Manager Brandon at Store 769. He exemplifies why we absolutely LOVE Trader Joe's! He was patient, incredibly helpful, empathetic and genuine in his desire to help me! That kind of kindness and customer service goes a LONG way! . . And now y'all know Trader Joe's is the place to go - FOR EVERYTHING! 😂 . . . . . . #bigbirtha#bigbirtharenolife#levityinteriors#traderjoes#traderjoesflowers#eucalyptus#diywedding#backyardwedding#fallwedding#diyflowers#thatroomiseverything#mymodernlook#mymidcenturymix#homesohard#ispyraddesign#thedelightofdecor#eclecticallymade#apartmenttherapy#mycuratedvibe
Raise your hand if you struggle to buy art for your home? 🙋🏼♀️I do. Most of the time it’s because I can’t afford it and other times I’m just not sure what I want so I make it myself. (Swipe to see a couple of pieces I did when I couldn’t afford to buy art) I decided, in this house, I would invest in some art pieces, I mean we do live in Margate after all. My first purchases are these very affordable prints from @janskacelikart. I’m sure you’ve seen them all over insta. I love them more in person that I did on people’s grids. Where do you buy art? How do you justify spending the money, especially if you’re renovating and need to prioritise like buying a toilet? Any resources or tips you’d like to share please leave a comment.
