summer's last hurrah [summer sale finds]

Sunday, August 22, 2010

the end of summer is here (although it does not feel like it where i live) and that means tons of great bargains and deals for summer items. when most stores stock up on their autumn/fall products (i spotted christmas stuff already!), their summer goods are in the back piled up in the clearance racks.

this weekend, while the rest of texas are in the shopping malls to take advantage of the tax-free weekend, i avoided the crowd and stayed at home doing online "window" shopping!

and here's what i found :

i found the cutest cookie wreath on sale at williams-sonoma.
isn't it gorgeous hanging on your dessert table for a butterfly or garden themed parties? it'll be a great idea to get two, one for display and the other to actually serve at your party!

also from williams-sonoma, these biodegradable and fully compostable gelato bowls and spoons
are a must for your next summer soiree. now only $ 4.99 for a set of 50 spoons and 48 bowls in variety of hues!

these attractive stoneware ice cream bowls are made to look like waffles, also on sale at williams-sonoma. kids would love eating scoops and scoops of ice cream in these!

these fun tableware with polkadot design are on sale at sur la table. these ceramic tabletop wares are perfect for your next party with the polkadot theme. i love the multiple vibrant colors!

lastly, this charming vintage-inspired bottle caddy will be an ingenious party tool as a napkin/utensil caddy for an informal outdoor dinner or to hold milk bottles for a cute cookies and milk-themed birthday party for your little one. made of galvanized steel and with a wood handle, it's now on sale at ballard designs!

I skipped the malls, too! They're crowded enough on regular weekends as it is.
