Happy Monday, friends! We have begun the countdown to Christmas and are in the 50 day stretch!
This past weekend I officially sent out the Facebook invite for an Annual Girl’s Christmas party my gals and I have been doing since our junior year of high school. We started the first year by doing a Secret Santa and moved on to a gift exchange and now that I have my own home, I can’t wait to host my first official holiday party in it!
As you may know if you follow me on Instagram, my bar cart is always decked out for each season. It’s my favorite piece to show off, and I consider it the best $30 investment I’ve made 😉 When Gordmans reached out to me to collaborate, I knew exactly what I wanted to share with you all in preparation for the party!
Living in Fremont, we have a limited number of stores for decor, and Gordmans is my go-to. Gordmans is an off-price retailer. Off-price retailers buy excess inventory from department and specialty stores, and then sell it at greatly reduced prices. For shoppers, that means exceptional deals on designer and name brand fashion and home decor. Basically, it’s a life saver store for all things home, gifting and holidays!
I know there is some opposition to holiday decor before Thanksgiving, but I think it’s never too early to start decorating. Everything I purchased had a price tag under $20. To get as good of deals as I did, find your Gordmans store location here.
Here’s how I styled my bar cart:
Tree Beverage Dispenser – $19.99
How perfect is this for my holiday party? I’m going to find a recipe for Apple Pie and fill this up (hopefully all this glitter comes out 🙂 )
Gold & Silver Ornaments – $2.99 (3 packages displayed)
Such a great deal for ornaments of fun shapes and sizes!
Gold Trees – $9.99 & $3.99
Necessary for your bar cart, your mantle or your bookshelf, I was shocked at the price point!
Get Your Jingle On Sign – $5.99
I just had a “Drink Up Witches” sign for fall, so it’s fun to swap these out.
Cocoa Mixes – $5.99
Getting super gourmet with the hot cocoa, these would make awesome stocking stuffers OR the perfect gift to put in a mug!
Santa Mugs – $5.99
Holiday drink necessity, right?
Gold Wire Basket – $9.99
This came in a variety of sizes and I loved that it could go on my bar cart, a shelf or a table and hold drinks, ornaments or goodies!
Bottle Tag – $1.99
Gordmans had great prices on tree decor and ornaments!
Holiday Towel – $2.99
Another favorite bar cart accessory you have to add!
Gordmans has been getting new holiday items in weekly, and I was informed some top-secret (or not so much) information by one of the Fremont employees that they’ll be getting another holiday truck in TOMORROW, Tuesday the 7th! As mentioned in this post, it’s great to start budgeting and planning your holiday decor and gifts sooner rather than later. I also snagged some great gifts. Gordmans has awesome $10 and under goodies. I’m thinking this is ideal for my Teammates building coordinator or co-workers!
Cocoa & Mug Set – $9.99
With just 49 days left, don’t let your holidays be stressful and get started decorating, budgeting and buying gifts early! I can’t wait to show you the rest of my home (especially my living room + fireplace area) once I’m finished ripping up carpet and decorating!
