Anne, I just discovered the $10 to Target linkup! I'm at Target at least once (if not twice) a week, so I'm all about any excuse to buy more (fun) stuff.
For my first $10 at Target, I took a toddler free trip (bliss) in search of party supplies. The kiddo's birthday is next month and we're going with a Curious George themed party - the kid's obsessed - and since I have to girlify everything, the color scheme is pink and yellow instead of red and yellow.
My Target finds:
Pink glitter dip picks: $1
Chalkboard sign pick: $1
Chalkboard marker: $1
Pink straws: $1
Yellow polka dot napkins: $2
(2) packs of pink paper plates: $4
TOTAL: $10 (not including tax)
I'm so happy with all my finds! Our dollar section has so many cute pink things right now - seriously wanted to buy it all - and the party supply section was full of light pink and yellow. Plates, streamers, banners, bunting, cups, straws, tablecloths, balloons...definitely going back for more.
I already have a DIY cake topper in mind for either the glitter dip picks or straws. Inspired, of course, by Target. :)
How cute would it be to have something like this on top of her cake with "A-U-B-R-E-Y" on the bunting? The cake stand was also on sale for $5, and I was this close to picking it up, but decided to wait since we're still debating between cupcakes or cake. If we go with cupcakes, I know I can still use the straws with the drinks and the picks with the snacks, so it's a win either way. I'm also loving the mason jars with straws (in the background). Filled with yellow lemonade and with a pink straw - so cute. I might just end up buying the entire dollar section. :)
If you don't count tax, I'm right at the limit, and if you do...well, I'm only 23 cents over, so that's not bad, right?
The next linkup actually isn't until April 18, but I had so much fun shopping on my lunch break, I wanted to share my finds right away! Plus, the 18th is Make it Work Monday, and I'm excited to share my latest outfit inspiration.
If you happen to find yourself at Target this weekend, I hope you join in the linkup so I can see your finds and more than likely shop your posts! Have a great weekend!
