Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Budget Friendly Guest Bedroom Makeover

Summer is finally here and with it comes a barrage of house guests and constant entertaining. We love it but it does take a bit of effort, preparation, and a reasonable budget. In fact, we are always surprised at how much it actually costs to host friends and relatives. In addition to the basics, such as stocking the fridge with fresh vegetables and produce, most summers, just before our guests begin to arrive we inevitably seem to find ourselves in desperate need of fresh towels or sheets or even a shower curtain. And of course, we are always searching for that little something special that will freshen the guest room up and help transform it from fine to fabulous.

Riedel Glassware Flash Sale!

Whether you are hosting a dinner party or just like a nice glass of wine with dinner, you know that using a quality wine glass really does make a difference. It is not just a bunch of marketing hype. Elegant Riedel glasses are designed to enhance each wine’s unique character and if you are a tactile type, you cannot only taste the difference, you can feel it too. Made in Germany from high-quality crystal, Riedel glasses are dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. We particularly like the stemless glasses because they actually fit in the dishwasher.

Best yet, we just received word that for the next 12 hours or so, Sur La Table is offering the featured Riedel Glassware sets for up to 40% OFF.  Yes, you read that right — 40 % OFF!!!!. And yes, these are the glasses you have always wanted but did not want to spring for. Plus, the stemmed glasses even ship for FREE with promo code SHIPFREE at checkout. Cheers!

One more thought >> even if you still cannot justify buying the glasses for yourself, Father's Day is just around the corner and we promise you, your honey will be delighted with his new set of Riedel wine glasses, especially if he later learns what a great deal they were!

Update! ORDER PLACED >> Even though I bought the stemless wine glasses the ordered qualified for Free Shipping because I also added some coffee filters & descaling liquid for my new Moccamaster Coffee Maker (and yes, I do love it) to my cart.  Do not forget to use the SHIPFREE promo code at checkout.

Party Hearty!

Christmas Throw Pillows >> Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls

Christmas Throw Pillows

We happened upon this great Tiny Prints instagram today and had to re-post it.  We love the idea of adding just a touch of holiday cheer to every room in your house.  You do not need to decorate every inch of the room from floor to ceiling, just add a couple of  fabulous Christmas throw pillows here and there and you are set.  We come across lots of pillows every single day and so far, these Tiny Prints Snowflake Fronds and Wonderful Swirls pillow are our hands down favorites.  As we come across other pillows we like, we will continue to update this post.

One more thought >> these pillows would make lovely holiday & hostess gifts!

The Pillows

Make a fashion statement with Tiny Prints customizable pillows. Pillows come in your choice of black or ivory finish for the back. A hidden zipper enclosure makes it easy for you to remove the synthetic-filled insert and machine-wash when needed.

Party Hearty!
