In this post: With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, a mother-daughter shopping spree for awesome decorative items is a great way to spend a day.
When my daughter was little, a girls’ day out usually involved painting ceramics or heading to the park. As she grew, she became quite a savvy shopper with a keen interest for fashion and shopping days became our thing. But it wasn’t until last year, when she got her own apartment, that shopping for home decor was added to our repertoire.
Last week I was lucky enough to receive a box of gift cards from my sponsor, Kirkland’s, and an invitation to preview their brand-spanking-new store opening in Paramus, NJ on May 6th.
This had mother-daughter shopping spree written all over it!
So I gathered a few friends and they brought their daughters, too.
What I love about this store, besides the very attainable prices, is the broad range of design styles the product can work with. From farmhouse to modern, French Country to industrial, the items in the store appeal to young and old.
Perfect for mother and daughter.
The sideboard cabinet above has sliding doors, reminiscent of trendy barn doors and sits comfortably next to a cool grey modern chair with arabesque pattern. (See resource list below.)
Beautifully merchandised displays reveal decor for seasonal occasions, from Fourth of July and Mother’s Day, to more general summer entertaining. This fabulous metal beverage tub serves up red, white and blue bottles, no doubt changed out when the next holiday approaches.
On the more feminine side, these pretty faux stems are lovely in the galvanized pitcher. Candles and other accessories are presented nearby.
In a section dedicated to kitchenware, there are whimsically labeled bowls and other decorative items suited for food prep, along with aromatic hand wash in delicate colors.
My daughter found a utensil holder with chalk-labeled compartments, perfect to corral her flatware in her tiny urban apartment.
As we’re coming into summer, there were lanterns everywhere, from wooden to metal, in all shapes and sizes.
Perhaps my absolute favorite items were these colorful mason jar lanterns, and while it’s hard to tell the size when they’re lined up next to each other, these are large lantern-size glass hurricanes and they’re totally awesome!
There’s plenty of artwork in the store, as well, and my girl was most interested in this section in particular.
But Kirkland’s is not just about decorative accessories. There’s also plenty of furniture to be found here. I love the distressed side table above in both white and natural.
Yep, not one person came home empty-handed!
Here’s a look at some of my selections, but I’ll be styling it all together in a post later this week.
You can get a sneak peek below at the direction I’m headed but I’ll be detailing it all for you with links as usual. There will also be a raffle for a $50 gift card for one lucky reader, so be sure to stop back on Thursday for the full reveal!
I’m not saying I will never paint ceramics again, but a mother-daughter shopping spree is definitely our new favorite pastime.
