When Chad moved to Brooklyn, he came with pretty much a couple of suitcases and an X-box (thankfully we got rid of the xbox pretty quick!). I had already been living in our studio apartment for a couple of months so I was established in the furniture department, but we needed to pick up some stuff for him pretty quick, like a wardrobe, desk, etc. We managed to hit a sample sale in our neighborhood and scored a side table with a little ding in it that he just HAD to have by the sofa for $25. We still have it 7 years later, and I’m definitely due for an upgrade.
This little gold side table is totally up my alley, but this white & espresso number or walnut table is probably more Chad. The great thing is, if we were getting married all over again, we could register for any of them at Target. And while we’re at it, might as well throw in some goodies when we entertain, like some new barware & bartools. That’s the great thing about registering, even though you may already have something, like plates, wine glasses or even pillows, its the perfect time to upgrade them to something new!
So tell me, is there anything in your house that you’d like to upgrade when you set up your registry?

Bridal showers can be so…well, pastel sometimes. They always seem to be chock full of pinks, baby yellows and lavenders. That might be great for a baby shower, but I love the idea of making it super graphic with a base of black and white. That way, if it’s a co-ed shower, the guys won’t feel like they’ve stepped into a powder puff! Once you’ve established your base, I love punching it up with bright colors from the food to the flowers. It doesn’t even have to be a ton of color…just pairing one would be striking and refreshing! How convenient would it be to register for gifts in the same palette?? There are so many options at Target that you’ll have no problem covering all your color bases.
And don’t forget to enter your “Be Yourself, Together” themed photos over at Brit & Co, where the grand prize winner will receive a $500 giftcard to Target and 4 additional winners will get $100 giftcards! You can enter until 10/15, so get those photos entered!

I’m a sucker for cute little gifts for people, so when I saw these keytags from the team at Project No. 8, I thought they’d be perfect to give out! There are tons of options, from serious to quirky to OMG!, and they can all be done in a bunch of colors. You can even customize the sayings! Kinda fun for your bridal party…especially if you pick words that REALLY fit the person.
