Springtime (Inexpensive!) Dining Finds

Springtime Table Steals

At Kohl's



First & foremost, this isn't sponsored in any way by Kohl's.
 I just found some crazy-good deals there recently that I had to share!

I've been seeing some darling springy, floral trends going on right now in dining accents and I've been dying to jump on the trend-but I don't want to have to shell out the big bucks every season for new tableware! So I've been patiently waiting, hoping that maybe I'd find a good deal on one or two pieces that could help bring together a cohesive spring/summer look in our dining nook & on our patio. But then I was at Kohl's a couple of weeks ago looking for something in the clothing department and couldn't help wandering into the home goods area...

And I'm so glad I did! They were having an awesome sale (50% off) on melamine dining products in both crisp white & also a fun floral print! They were inexpensive to begin with and at the sale price  they were pretty much begging to come home with me. You bet I snapped up a few of those babies to take back home!
I picked up a few bowls, plates, two small platters and a chip & dip container for about $50 total. 

My haul...muahahaha

I started out with these cute kitchen towels, mainly because they tied in the colors of my outdoor stuff (aqua & navy) with my current kitchen colors (red & yellow).

Love kitschy kitchen towels
Originally $7.99 on sale for 2.40

Then I added some melamine bowls & plates in white, to balance out all the color the rest of the items would be bringing in.




Finally, I added some fun floral platters and  chip & dip container!

Colorful!




I plan to show you the whole outdoor area within the next few weeks (not promising it will be "done" but it won't be the total blank slate it's been every since we moved in either...) and I think these cute non-breakable dishes will be a fun accent for outdoor dinners!

Since we're in our dining nook, why don't I show you a few other springtime accents....

The "pantry" under the terrace window
Fun fact: that colorful dotted print is a placemat--I do this a lot on this pantry, using different placemats for different seasons.

Beautiful baby orchid from a co-worker for "Administrative Professionals Week"
Say a prayer for this orchid that he lives a little longer than the last one I had

Little tealight holders from Tarjay

Still working this fancy marshmallow display from Easter

I've had these tiny owl salt & pepper shakers for a few seasons now & still adore them!

I should really put a photo in this frame, but I kind of dig the turquoise color

Moving to the other side of the dining nook...

The buffet table that separates our dining are from the living room 
My best friend since I was 3 got me these last Christmas and I love them!
There are four of this larger size for apps...

And four tiny sized for coasters!

I love the various colors & styles 

Another flower arrangement from sweet co-workers!

I love me some candles. This one got lit immediately after I finished taking photos.

Gold striped straws inside of a vase I received with a gift a year or so ago

Tip: Use a scarf as a tablerunner that pulls in the colors you're using for a vignette. It will be unique and free!


That's all folks!
