2017 Christmas Target Dollar Spot

For those of you who know me, you know how much I love Target! I especially love their Dollar Spot and it is usually the first place I stop on my weekly, okay sometimes daily, trips to Target. If you caught my post earlier in the season on Target’s fall décor, you know that they once again hit it out of the park with their selections. Side note, I’m watching the World Series right now, so you might catch a couple of baseball references here and there. Also, the Astros are currently winning. Anyways, back to why we are all here, Target’s 2017 Christmas decor in their Dollar Spot! Y’all, it is lovely and oh so festive! Here are my favorite finds from Target’s 2017 Dollar Spot Christmas finds!

Christmas Packaging and Wrapping

Christmas Wrapping Target Dollar Section

Where do I begin? I love planning out my packaging designs each year. The bags, the ribbon, the tags, it is just so fun! However, I really don’t like the amount of money I end up spending. Full disclosure, I have totally spent the same amount on the wrapping as I have on the gift inside of the wrapping. I know! It is so humiliating. But it happened and I have learned from my ways. Thankfully, I met Target’s Dollar Spot and that mistake has not been made again.

There are so many gift bags to choose from! Large gift backs, small gift backs, wine bags, and my very favorite this year, the adorable gift sacks! I don’t know about you, but I would flip a lid if someone gave me a gift in one of these adorable gift sacks. Hi, is this straight from Santa’s workshop? I also love the Texas design! For all of my non-Texas friends, I would love to see your state’s design! There are multiple gift bag designs in multiple sizes, so there are plenty to fit your style! Oh did I mention how inexpensive they are? Here is your holiday gift bag pricing guide from Target’s 2017 Christmas Dollar Spot:

Christmas Decor

Christmas Home Decor Target Dollar Spot

Decorating my home at Christmas time might be my favorite thing to do. This year’s dollar spot has so many beautiful décor pieces for your home including fur stockings and beautiful stocking holders! I had to rein it in for this portion because I already have so much home décor for Christmas. However, I had to purchase this adorable mirrored sign for one of my shelves. They have so many cute things like this and they have the cutest little Christmas trees for countertops and desks.

Décor Sign: $3

Cocktail Napkins and Coasters

Target Dollar Spot Cocktail Napkins 2017.

Cocktail napkins and coasters do two things at a party: Act as beautiful accent pieces for your décor theme for the evening and SAVE your beautiful tables, bars, and countertops from the unspeakable beverage ring. We have all been there. Nobody likes to discover the ring at the end of a successful evening. These cocktail napkins and wooden coasters are just too adorable! The wooden coasters will also act as a great accessory when gifting a bottle of wine or whiskey!

Target Dollar Spot Holiday Baking Tins

Every year I have a day of holiday baking! I make so many delicious holiday treats, package them in pretty tins and paper with ribbons and bows, and give them out to neighbors, co-workers, family, and friends. I love it! I watch Christmas movies all day and bake away! Part of the fun is making the packaging for these tasty treats absolutely adorable and full of Christmas spirit. However, this can get pretty pricey. That is why I was thrilled to find these adorable holiday tins in Target’s Dollar section! They have several designs to choose from and they are the perfect size for giving away holiday treats!

I am very excited about this Joy pie pan and Christmas tree ramekins. They will look fantastic on the table during the holidays! They also had a Merry Christmas pie pan and white snowflake ramekins!

They also had a set of three mini glass jars as well!

Fall 2017 Target Dollar Spot Home Décor

Target Dollar Spot Fall 2017

I don’t think I have ever gone into Target without buying something that I didn’t initially intend to purchase. This has become especially hard since the Target Dollar Spot is so amazing! Seriously, their seasonal home décor is fantastic! Everything is under $5 or less and it is absolutely beautiful! I went in today for groceries and walked out with home décor for fall and I don’t regret a single purchase. I’m sure I already missed out on some other beautiful pieces, but I was pretty pleased with my selection this weekend! Here is what I found and what I paid for each piece of decor:

Thankful Wooden Cookbook Stand: $3
Target Dollar Spot Finds Fall 2017 - Cookbook Stand

How adorable is this cookbook stand? There is something about fall that makes me want to make every recipe in the world! I love experimenting with new and old recipes and I’m usually scrolling through my iPad or combing through a recipe book. This stand holds both perfectly and it sure does sit pretty all on its own. This was totally worth the $3!

Leaf Plates: $3
Target Dollar Spot Fall 2017 - Leaf Plates
If we are being totally honest, I really don’t need these leaf plates, but they were just too precious not to purchase! They look fantastic in photos and they are the perfect size to serve a treat with afternoon tea! I purchased this crème color, but they also had a lovely green pumpkin set.

Target Dollar Spot Fall 2017 - Clear Vase

Clear and Copper Vase: $5
Floral Stems: $3 per stem (3 Stems Displayed In Photo)
So let’s be honest, vases can be ridiculously expensive! That is why I was jumping up and down when I found this beauty for only $5! These floral stems were only $3 each and they look fantastic inside of the vase. This beautiful pairing was only $14!

Garland: $5 Each
I just love this garland. It just adds that perfect touch of fall to any centerpiece or table. I still can’t believe I only paid $10 for two stands!

Target Dollar Spot Fall 2017 - Pumpkins

White Pumpkins With Purple Succulents: $3 Each
I am in love with these pumpkins! Not only do the colors match my home and my Alma Matter (Go Frogs!), but they are just too creative! Target also had a few other color options, too! These stylish babies were only $3 each! The other white pumpkin with the gorgeous gold stem was not a Target Dollar Spot purchase, but it was a Target purchase from last season and I love it!

Green Plush Pumpkin: $3
I just loved the color of this plush pumpkin to break up the white in the other pumpkins.

If you love Target as much as I do, you know how quickly their items leave the Target Dollar Spot shelves! I found my goodies this weekend, but they could be gone in a flash! Have you visited Target lately? What new finds did you purchase for your lovely home?

5 Ways to Incorporate Your Wedding Day into Your Home Décor

How To Incorporate Your Wedding Day Decor Into Your Home Decor | The Sassy Southern

You spend so much time, money, and energy planning your perfect wedding day. When the day finally arrives, it is over in a flash! Thankfully, you have your wedding, photos, video, and memories, but what do you do with all of the small decor details that you worked so hard to perfect? As I was planning my wedding, I knew that I would want to keep certain things from the day as a way to always remember the big moments as well as the smaller moments. Here are 5 ways I incorporated my wedding day into my home décor!

Unity Ceremony
Unity Ceremony Idea for a Christian Wedding - Home Decor

We had mixed emotions about doing a unity ceremony at our wedding. We knew we wanted to do something, but we couldn’t find something that fit us as a couple. We were familiar with some of the popular ideas like the unity candle, the sand ceremony, and the tree planting ceremony, but none of those screamed us! We had selected Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 as our wedding verse and wanted to make sure our pastor incorporated this into our ceremony. As I was looking for unity ceremony ideas on Etsy, I found this beautiful wooden board with three cords and our wedding verse! One cord symbolizes the groom, one cord symbolizes the bride, and the cord in the center symbolizes Christ. As a couple, you braid the three chords together during your ceremony to symbolize your commitment to making Christ the center of your marriage. We instantly fell in love with this idea! Not only was the concept absolutely perfect for our wedding and our relationship, but the board is absolutely beautiful! We were able to customize the look and it is now part of our home décor above our kitchen cabinets. It is something we see every day and is a constant reminder of our vows and the importance of keeping Christ at the center of our marriage.

Toasting Flutes

Wedding Decor and Home Decor

Most venues provide toasting flutes for the bride and groom on the wedding day, but I wanted to have flutes that we could use to celebrate many more firsts and celebrations in our marriage. We chose a pair of gold flutes by Lenox. They matched our wedding, but they also matched our wedding china and home décor. Not only did they look absolutely stunning in our photos and in our wedding video, but they bring me so much joy every time we use them! We just celebrated our 1-year wedding anniversary and it was so much fun toasting with the same flutes we toasted with on our wedding day. Cheers to so many more years!

Wedding Favor

Home and Wedding Day Decor

Wedding favors are a beautiful way to thank all of your guests for celebrating with you on your perfect day. But how on earth do you select the same favor for 250 people with completely different taste? The first year of our dating relationship, I was working for an event planner. At one of the events we planned, they had the Original Butt Sketch as one of the vendors. If you aren’t familiar with this concept, the artist poses you in an oh so classy stance and sketches you in under three minutes. Why is it called a butt sketch? The artist sketches you from behind! While the name might not scream classy wedding favor, it really is such a beautiful keepsake. My boyfriend (now hunky husband) and I absolutely LOVED our first sketch and I told him that night that if we got married, we would have them at our wedding. Fast-forward six years and that is exactly what we did! Instead of a traditional wedding favor, we had The Original Butt Sketch at our wedding as wedding favors for all of our guests. This was also really special for us because we had our first sketch from when were dating framed and on an easel for our guests to see as they were having their sketches done. We now have our first sketch framed above my bedside table and our wedding sketch framed above my husband’s bedside table. This was such a beautiful way for us to bring our wedding into our home décor for many years to come!

Wedding Bouquet

Wedding Day Flowers

This is definitely not a new idea, but it is a classic one! Dry your wedding bouquet and have it displayed in a vase in your home! I know there are mixed reviews on this idea, but I personally love having my bouquet displayed in my home! Every time I look at it, I’m reminded of that beautiful day. And let’s be honest, you (or your parents) spent a pretty penny on those lovely flowers, so let’s make them last, shall we? Since we left for our honeymoon the morning after our wedding, my mom took my bouquet home and hung my flowers upside down to dry out. One of my bridesmaids did the same with her wedding bouquet, but she put her flowers in a basket above her kitchen cabinet! However you decided to display your wedding flowers, drying your wedding boquet is a great way to keep part of your perfect day with you after the wedding day.

Wedding Day Photography

Well, of course, you have wedding photos in your home. That is the whole point, right? The classic shots are a beautiful reminder of your perfect day, but what about some of the other 900 photos from your day that you don’t necessarily want on the wall in your foyer, but you would love to see on a regular basis? To start, I highly recommend having a professional wedding album displaying each part of your day. We have ours displayed on our coffee table and it is a great conversation piece when you have guests over. We also had photos framed of each of us getting ready the day of the wedding. I have my husband’s photo next to my bathroom sink and he has my photo framed next to his bathroom sink. Every morning as we get ready for our day, we are reminded of the day we started our lives as husband and wife. While this is something small, it puts a smile on my face each morning.

Your wedding day will always be a day to remember, but it is really the beginning of your beautiful new life. How did you incorporate your wedding day into your home décor?
