Hosting a Giveaway

Happy Monday everyone!  Did you see the surprise that I posted on Friday?  I’m still so excited about our new house!  Today is also pretty exciting because I’m hosting my very first giveaway!

All you have to do to win is enter below by visiting my facebook page, subscribing to the blog or visiting me on Pinterest or Instagram.  Be sure to tell all your friends too, because you could win $25 to a trio of stores with great celebratory party and home gear; Marshall’s, HomeGoods, and TJMaxx.

I love these stores because you can usually find quirky little items, name brand products for less, and a plethora of goodies for any party.  I went to my nearby Marshall’s and snapped some pictures of fun things I found.  And yes, I got a few weird looks while I was taking pictures of everything in the store and rearranging shelves to get a decent picture.

Marshall's Giveaway

Marshall's GiveawayWrapping paper is one of my favorite things to buy at any of these stores.  I always find really cute patterns and on trend color options.  Right now there were a ton of seasonal wrapping paper for Valentine’s Day and even a green glitter polka dot pattern that would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.

Marshall's Giveaway If you need to stock up on basic serving ware, you can easily put this gift card to use.  If you need suggestions on what kind of basic serving pieces I recommend, check out this post.

Marshall's GiveawayThis trio of stores is also a great place to stock up on champagne and wine glasses.  You can typically find packs of four or six glasses fairly cheaply.  I love having a stockpile of plain wine and champagne glasses for parties, it’s just so much nicer to drink out of a glass that’s designed for a specific beverage rather than a regular cup.  There’s no better way to celebrate than with a nice glass of champagne!

Marshall's Giveaway I also found these super fun stemless wine glasses with inspiring gold sayings. They say, “creativity takes courage,” “be yourself,” “create your own happiness,” and “get your happy on.”

Marshall's Giveaway

Marshall's Giveaway If you need to stock up on note cards, thank you cards, or note pads, you will definitely find some cute ones at any of these stores.  I love grabbing a pack of thank you cards pretty much any time I’m here.  I love that note pad to do list because it’s detachable, how clever.  And those “S” note cards are tags that come with twine, perfect for hanging on a gift.

Marshall's Giveaway

Marshall's Giveaway I literally fell in love with these patterned file folders.  The colors and patterns are just so cute, I mean look at those flamingos!  I’m surprised I passed them up because I know it would be a celebration every time you’d open your drawer with these!

Marshall's GiveawayThere are also a lot of great home decor items at my local Marshall’s and HomeGoods does home decor so well you practically want everything in the store.  I spotted a really nice variety of rugs with current patterns and colors, plus that white fluffy rug felt like a cloud, so soft.  This Kate Spade comforter was fairly priced and I love that Kate even makes sure her packaging is on brand.  The clear bag was trimmed in gold, of course.  I also thought this little bamboo side table could be really fun between two armchairs with some cocktail accessories displayed on it for a little Asian/beachy flair.

And literally on my way out the door I spotted this awesome bench.  I love the linen fabric, nail head trim, and those lucite legs!  So pretty!

    Too fun! I like HomeGoods for kitchen supplies and glassware. It is quality stuff but not insane prices. I also really love those folders!

      Yes, HomeGoods definitely has value. I may go back for those folders, haha!

I love to get inspired eveytime i go there and why not getting all kind of things for future DYI proyects for my house and presents for my family, friends and ofcourse mu hubby?

      I’m so glad you guys are finally together! I don’t know if Hawaii has any of these stores, but I do know that they have online shops that would ship to Hawaii!

    I would probably buy either some baskets to decorate the house or put it toward a handbag. They have nice handbags at Marshalls. 🙂

    • dailyhostess February 6, 2016 at 3:30 pm #

      Yes, going through the handbag area is a must every time you go to Marshalls!

  6. Emily Smith February 5, 2016 at 11:27 pm #

    I would love to use it to buy something new for my kitchen. Either decor or new cooking utensils.

    • dailyhostess February 6, 2016 at 3:31 pm #

      Sounds like a great idea! They even had Le Creuset at the Marshall’s I went to!

  7. Cynthia February 6, 2016 at 11:09 am #

    I would like to get new glassware for cocktails and stuff to decorate my room.

  8. Cindy A. February 6, 2016 at 3:14 pm #

    I would use it to buy a fun welcome mat for spring. Only 42 days left! 🙂

    • dailyhostess February 6, 2016 at 3:32 pm #

      That’s a great idea! It feels like summer here this weekend, we’re closing in on 80 degrees!

  9. Matt February 6, 2016 at 4:16 pm #

    Probably give the gift card to my wife! She has better taste than I do!

  10. Maria February 7, 2016 at 8:06 pm #
