June: Out & About

This post is coming to you guys a little late, but I have a good reason! I’m spending the holiday week at my family’s lake house in Michigan and I promise a blog post showcasing this gorgeous house in the near future, but this month I went back to Homegoods to see what I could find.

Melamine dinner plates and salad plates. Melamine bowls. Olivewood salad serving set.

This woven tray actually came home with me. It’s the whole reason I went to Homegoods in the first place. I needed to find a large tray to take items from the kitchen to the deck. Homegoods had a bunch of great outdoor trays but I liked the large size of this tray and the metal handles.

There’s so many woven outdoor trays out there but a lot of them are the brown or natural color (which I love) but I was really feeling this round, black tray. Personally, I think it’s a little too chic to use just to transport plates and utensils, but a citronella candle, outdoor lantern, and mini succulent would look great on it!

Homegoods had a lot of these covered trays with the netting that protects food from bugs. The tribal pattern on this particular tray really pops.

How cute is this palm leaf platter? I was thisclose to buying it. It has a nice weight to it, but it’s melamine so it’s nearly shatter-proof and perfect for the outdoors. I was also debating between this tray with the leather handles and the one I ultimately bought with the metal handles. I’m telling you – if you need a woven outdoor tray, head to Homegoods immediately !!

Remember in last month’s Out and About when I profiled planters from West Elm and CB2? I found this planter at Homegoods for a fraction of the price. This small planter is a great dupe for this one from CB2.

It wouldn’t be a monthly fun finds post without a faux potted plant. Homegoods is a great place to buy these because the plants are so realistic looking and you can’t beat the price point! I stock up on faux greenery since it’s so easy to add it to existing decor.

I loved this footed tray. The iron legs were a nice contrast to the warm wooden top. Footed trays are so versatile, too. They can be purely decorative or if the top if food-safe, like this one is, you can even display and serve desserts on it.

This hand soap reminded me of this cult favorite soap from Nordstrom. This soap is so much cheaper than the one at Nordstrom but it smells just as good. Plus, at 32oz, you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Homegoods has a pretty decent selection of lamps. I love that you can just unplug one and take it with you! The rattan accent and wooden base on the first lamp would look great if you have nautical vibe in your home. The navy and white lamp would also work in a nautical theme, especially if you don’t want it to be too obvious.

Homegoods is a great place to find little decorative accents for your home like this wooden ball and thin vase. I like to pick up little accents like this when I’m out and about and store them at my home even if I don’t have a place to put them yet. These kinds of items are great for decorating bookshelves.

I love a textured neutral throw. When you decorate with a lot of neutrals, texture is a good way to bring in some variation. Homegoods also had a fantastic selection of textured neutral pillows, too. I wanted to buy all of the pillows I’ve featured below, but I value my marriage too much to bring home yet another throw pillow!! Ha!

How amazing is this mirror?! No wonder the store featured it so prominently! If you’re looking to make a statement in a foyer or bedroom, this is the mirror for you. I love decorating with mirrors because they can make any space look instantly bigger and more open.

And finally, let this be a lesson: ALWAYS get the big cart. Even if you don’t think you’ll need it or you think a smaller cart will force you to buy less. This is how I was living at Homegoods last week. I almost took out a few other shoppers when I turned the corner!

Homegoods is one of my favorite places to look for home decor. The price points are great, the selection is never the same, and the decor is on trend. Can’t get much better than that!
