Fall Decorating on a Budget (It's Finally Here!!)

My Dream Home Picture

Just this morning, it arrived! I finally own it and it is on the wall in my own home. I am nearly at the end of my fall redecorating extravaganza!

I have a console table on the way, that I will use for homeschooling books, and two end tables that match the style pretty closely (same wood, same wrought-iron legs). I think after that, I am done redecorating for a while.

But What a Transformation

I think I have spent about $500 altogether across a two-three month period and in the process, have transformed three rooms in my apartment: kitchen, living room and dining room! I have a new Tuscan dinnerware set, a casserole dish and a beanpot, a picture hanging above the mantel, two lamps, three tables, two small pictures on my mantel, a small picture that will be a Christmas present, two lanterns that I will use as candleholders for the console or my coffee table and whatever else I decide to buy as a hostess gift.

Hostessing Pays Off

The way I did it was by creating an online party and then, ordering from myself. Each month, both customers and hostesses get really neat deals, so as the customer, I would take advantage of that deal, then as the hostess, get even more.

Let me know if you would like to try it. I got the console and the picture, both almost $200 each, for half price. My dinnerware set was half price also and my casserole, and something I am forgetting, were free.

If you want to take a look around on the Celebrating Home website, here is my link. It will show all of this month's specials.

If you want to be a hostess yourself, to get even more deals, there is a link on the website to tell you more about that or you can let me know in the comment section here.

One neat thing about Celebrating Home is that you can easily do online parties and shop in your pajamas!

See you Thursday with more fall decorating ideas!

Have a wonderful day!! :)

  3. Hi Cheryl!

    Thanks so much for visiting and commenting.

    I have gotten some good things from Pampered Chef over the years. You're right, though!! It can be hard to start a selling business.

    You know, I want a mountain view, too, I think. Trees, lake, mountain ~~ I want it all, darn it!! :)
