My Favorite Entertaining Items for Labor Day — Under $60

August 28, 2014

Hello! Happy Thursday everyone.

A housekeeping announcement before we begin our daily thrift session: my mother and sister both kindly informed me that my last post was RIFE with errors and typos, so I just wanted to say oops and I’m sorry. Self-editing is an ongoing process that is sometimes more successful than others. So, my bad. #shit

Now, on to much more important things: THE WEEKEND.

Labor Day weekend is almost here and I am going to the beach with my parents, sister and bro-in-law, Wilson, and, most importantly, my baby nieces. Sorry Wilson and fam. My nieces are the sweetest/cutest/smartest/prettiest/etc. etc. you get the picture — I’m obsessed with them. 

On Saturday night I am in charge of making dinner. I’m going to make crab cakes, a delicious salad, and some sort of buttery, not-good-for-you casserole. After all, it’s vacation and the weekend. And I deserve it, dammit. 

Here are a few entertaining lovelies that I think would be perfect for my Saturday dinner — all under $60. Perf. 


aqua plate / napkin rings / cake stand / wooden bowl / linen napkin / gold glasses / gold spoons / fish bottle opener / blue bowl / coasters

 Good stuff, huh?

And speaking of weekends, a fellow UNC grad just started a fabulous blog called Weekend Wanderer that is truly fantastic. Check it out if you are into weekends. If you aren’t into weekends, you shouldn’t be reading SST either, for that matter. 

Hope each of you has a safe, happy and extremely fun weekend.  I’ll be toasting you.
