With all the traveling we did earlier this year, we haven’t had much time to have friends over this year. But now that summer is here, I’m ready to have some summer parties. We’ve been spending weekends adding more touches to the house as well as buying supplies for all the summer gatherings I plan on having.
Recently, we went to JCPenney, where there was a ton of summer party entertaining items on sale–40-50% off! I’m sharing my purchases and hosting a giveaway for a $100 JCPenney gift card at the end of this post! Some of the items I picked up included an outdoor flower tablecloth, an elegant glass water dispenser, and the most adorable ice cream cone serving bowls. Seriously, I cannot get over how cute these are and I got them for 40% off!
After I got home, I found even more items online I wanted to add to my summer party collection. Now I just need to convince Mr. K that I need more stuff… Of course after I buy things, I immediately want to open them all and set them up. So even though we haven’t had a party quite yet, I put everything together to see how it would all look. Mr. K thought I was crazy, but this is totally normal right? How else can I make sure everything matches? Or figure out that I really need to pick up some fresh flowers before my party and also go back to the store for the pretty spring green plates I was eyeing? I also bought this Bisou Bisou maxi dress. I like that it works for something casual and slightly dressier. I especially like the metallic neckline and the halter-style top. If you’re planning on doing some summer entertaining this year, JCPenney is a great option to check out. They’ve also got some more upcoming deals, including:
