{project fab} Outdoor Entertaining with Marshalls

  Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,, 
With the warm summer weather comes the chance to throw a party—and maybe even take it outside if the weather permits.  My latest Project Fab assignment came just in time for Memorial Day! This Sunday my mom had our extended family over for a party so I decided to help get ready with supplies (and an outfit) from Marshalls!  See some photos of our decor below with credits under each photo. I'm only calling out items I bought, but I'm sure a bunch of my mothers items are from Marshalls too, or you can at least find similar pieces there.

Marshalls makes it so easy to prepare for a party by stocking tons of unique (and also classic) pieces for up to 60% off retail prices! Every time I go into the home department I could walk away with at least 5 things.  This time I had to leave behind an awesome burgundy frying pan, I may go back for it though!

Luckily we had a perfect day for an outside party, Saturday was wet and gloomy but Sunday was sunny and the perfect temperature. This bomber jacket I picked up was the perfect piece to keep me warm in my gauzy dress when it got chillier.  Notice something weird about the outfit? I'm wearing white again!  Guess I'm warming up to the idea of wearing it myself, although I still worry about getting it dirty.

  3. Ohhh I love the bomber, and it was such a steal! Too bad the dress didn't work out, because it's gorgeous as well. I love shopping marshalls for great deals on housewares, the drink dispenser is my favorite!
