This post was created in partnership with Bed, Bath and Beyond but all opinions are my own – natch!
How did it get to be December 24th already? Yes, I will be one of those folks making a last minute trip to one or two stores today to pick up some items for the holidays, mostly hostess gifts.
I popped into my local Bed, Bath & Beyond store as I was in need of a new shower curtain for my ensuite and in the process, I picked up a few items from one of my favourite brands – Kate Spade. I am not really into brand names per se, but the happy, preppy Kate Spade vibe always makes me smile. I had no idea that BB&B carried her line of home accessories, bedding, barware and items for the kitchen, dining room and bath.
Case in point, these polka dot tea towels which say “All in good taste” are the perfect hostess gift. Everyone needs them so not only are they pretty, but practical too – #winwin. I love how they blend seamlessly into my own kitchen.
And then, so maybe I got a bit carried away with the polka dots but how adorable are these plates? They are larger than a salad plate but smaller than a dinner plate (I have layered it over a dinner plate so you can see the size difference.) They are the perfect size if you are trying to cut down your portion size at meal time – the smaller the plate, the less food it will fit, right? I think they will come in handy after the holidays.
But they are also perfect for serving appetizers or sweet treats to guests. The gold polka dots are festive and instant happiness!
And the gold flatware 5 piece place setting is so pretty that I just couldn’t resist. If you’re like me, you may have some tarnished or mismatched flatware which aren’t the most prettiest things to serve to guests. These ones look and feel so luxurious.
So back to the shower curtain which was on my original “need” list. The Kate Spade line carried by BB&B has so many adorable ones and this one may have to be my favourite. It can instantly dress up your bathroom or a kid’s bath.
The one I settled on was this one:
I had to choose something simple as I have a large scale floral wallpaper on one of the walls. These shower curtains are a classic and I love that it comes in longer lengths all the way up to 96″ – most shower curtains are 72″ in length. The longer length (I chose 84″ for my 8′ ceiling upstairs) just gives a custom touch to your bathroom and make your ceilings appear taller. I will share a photo later on instagram once my floor tiles are updated – one of the areas I need to address in the New Year. Changing out your shower curtain will instantly update a tired looking bathroom – trust me!
Thank you Bed, Bath and Beyond for allowing me to #SleighTheHoliday with these items. Stop into your local store or order online as some items aren’t available in store. Delivery was super quick. They carry an extensive line of items, not just for the bed and bath, such as small appliances. #sponsored #ad
This will be my last post this year. I hope you enjoy a wonderful, peaceful holiday with your loved ones. I plan on doing the same. (You can follow me on Instagram where I will be sharing photos and stories over the holidays.)
All my best for a happy and healthy 2017,
