If you were here yesterday then you know this is the week of the spring refresh.
Today we are in the kitchen.
Before I talk about what I found, I have to share a yard sale update. Remember when I filmed this video of my yard sale finds and I showed you this magazine holder I was making over?
Can you spot it there on the counter?
The one that’s painted white with a monogram on the end of it and blue and white plates inside?
It’s ready for summer.
And now, if you are just joining us, my friend Leslie and I are going to go through our entire house this week and refreshing it room by room with a new item for each space.
We’re picking the same type of item, but each of us is going to feature that item in our own style, in our own spaces and today is all about the kitchen.
I found something for the kitchen that I couldn’t wait to order because IT HAS OVER 16,000 reviews on Amazon.
Can you guess what it is?
I was a little skeptical at first.
Why all the reviews? What in the world was so exciting about plastic tumblers?
They showed up.
They are perfection.
First of all, they are big. Each glass holds 24 oz. which is awesome for summer and flavored water.
Secondly, they look like glass, but they are plastic. Amazing for the pool and outdoors and picnics and generally summer activities.
Thirdly, they come in a set of six and their shape is so modern and classic and they are solid. They are made of a thicker plastic that feels so expensive.
My napkin holder is sold out, but here’s a link to a similar one.
I also found these paper plates for all the summer picnics and outdoor meals.
They are so pretty.
They’re from a brand called Kate Aspen and they come in the larger size and a smaller dessert plate.
Here’s a close-up of the larger blue and white plates.
The edges are scalloped and with a blue and white willow pattern.
Those polka dots on the inside are the cutest.
They come in a set of sixteen with these scalloped edges, too.
They are SUPER reasonably priced and perfect for outdoor entertainment or a wedding shower.
My kitchen is READY for summer thanks to these glasses.
And if you are wondering what to put in them?
I have a few suggestions.
We make it for every party and everyone always asks for the recipe.
Here’s another idea.
What about a skinny strawberry smoothie?
Then fill the plates with these snickerdoodles?
And your kitchen will be ready for summer, too.
If you have any questions on anything else in the space, you can always shop my house here.
I’m doing an entire tour of the space on Instagram later and Leslie and I are going to share a new room and a new find each day this week.
Want to see what kitchen find she picked?
It’s so pretty!
Wasn’t that fun?
A new set of glasses and blue willow paper plates.
A little spring refresh.
A space that makes me so happy.
And there’s always tomorrow, too.
I can’t WAIT for you to see what I found for the dining room.
