Oh Memorial Weekend, you eat the entire time and then feel like the laziest thing ever but that's how the holiday should be spent. Last night we had family over and I'm still full! Today we have a variety of friends over as we purchased a new grill that we will enjoy using and we do live on the beach! When getting people together you have to make sure you have the tools you need for the grill! Then you have to have tons of platters, containers and more. Make sure you check off the essentials on your list to ensure a fun time that everyone will remember!
I remember growing up having Tupperware at home. I believe my mom bought them from someone at work but they were perfect to use at home, to take to parties and so much more. Now that I am moving in with my boyfriend and we are hosting various parties, it made me think of Tupperware when it came time to thinking about keeping our foods fresh. They have so many options when it comes to storage, using it in the microwave, transporting it to and from locations and so much more. Take some time to check out all of the great items that are available and make sure you begin thinking about what you need for the holiday season.
So my past few weekends have been spent looking at condos in Hoboken. In the beginning it was very exciting and now I must say that you reach a point where you get a little desensitized to many of the features that you later learn are standard with the place that you are looking at! With that being said, looking at these crisp and modern places makes me want to decorate all over it! I have learned that my bf is fascinated (read obsessed) with ceiling heights and I am all about storage whether it is closets, shelving or bringing in containers. So as he looks for yet another amazing space, I tend to visit sites like Ikea to find these super cute Spice Containers. I love a contemporary/modern look and I love knowing that I can see what spice I am actually about to use. So it seems that we may be closer than ever in terms of getting a great place! I can't wait to share with you guys all the items that I plan on getting from Crate & Barrel, Ikea, Target and so much more!
No matter the season or the style of your apartment/home, having blue in your home is definitely therapeutic and should be used even if it is only a pop of color! These glass vases which are perfect to fill with liquid, flowers, marbles, etc are available in a variety of sizes at Pottery Barn and yes they can be monogrammed as well. This is such a great housewarming gift, graduation or something for you to get yourself whether you line them up in various heights, place it in your kitchen or within your bedroom. You can make your own seascape in whatever way best fits your mood or style. Of course, this will ensure that you'll either visit the store, catalog or site in order to find other items that would work as well! I love summer and a great idea!
