Long story short… My daughter loves piano, so my husband found a used keyboard on Craigslist. We picked it up in Manhattan Beach (about 40 minutes from our house) and there’s a HomeGoods nearby. My husband, being the kind, generous, and patient man that he is, hung out with my four-year-old, while I got to shop.

It turns out that HomeGoods is owned by the same people as TJ Maxx, where I went a few weeks ago, so it was no surprise that they had many of the same items, but much much more. The store is heaven if you love parties, entertaining, and decorating. I felt infinitely creative just walking through the door.

Here are some of my favorite finds…

Perfect for a baby shower or tea party $12.99.
Mod cake plate $12.99.
Great for serving water on a long table or putting flowers in. $5.99 each.
Each tea pot was $9.99. You could dress these up for an Alice in Wonderland tea party.
I've always wanted one of these to add lemon and basil to my water. $16.99.
You can't tell from this photo but these are huge. $7.99 – $14.99
I'm always looking for a new cake stand $14.99
One of my white essentials. $12.99
Silver is more expensive, but I thought just one. $19.99
Beehive drink dispenser $19.99

So many good finds at HomegGoods. If only there was one closer to our house… Actually, maybe it’s a good thing there’s not. 🙂
