Spring Decor Revamp with Marshalls & T.J.Maxx


Spring has sprung and as I said here, I’m on an “out with the old, in with the new” mission. There are parts of my home that need a purge (read: my closets) and others that need a mini facelift for spring. Although my closet overhaul is a major priority, I decided to spend some time refreshing my dining room first. It’s a pretty formal dining room, but I wanted to add a little more personality to it. I also wanted to decorate the table with items that would work for both indoor and outdoor dining–saving me money and space. Naturally, I went to T.J.Maxx and Marshalls in search of high quality spring decor that would spruce up my dining room table (and leave me with extra money to play around with).

This is what my dining room table looked like before.
White, gold and some floral placemats. Simple.

Green is my favorite color. I love green clothes, glasses, shoes, vegetables and decor. T.J.Maxx had tons of green vases and bowls, so I picked up one of each. I envisioned my dining room to be green and earthy, so I added  brown vase fillers to the mix. These natural accents are the perfect addition the green bowl and I love the fact that the balls are striped, adding some dimension to the decor.

I spotted the set of 1L hermetic glass bottles in Marshalls and had to buy them. The set of three cost less than $6. I love hermetic bottles, especially colored ones! I used them during the holidays to store my homemade hostess gift specialty drinks. I received the beaded placemats at a Marshalls/T.J.Maxx event a few years ago and put them to good use.

I thought I was done shopping until I went into the linens aisle and spotted this.

Yes, Pantone’s 2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid! Now I was thinking: “Oohh! Maybe I can have two looks for the dining room table.” I already had a set of purple mason jars in my overflowing cart and figured I could use them for beverages and/or use them as votives with tea light candles. With candles on the brain, I went into the candles section and fell in love with a super luxe soy blend candle and picked up a pair. I wish you guys could smell them. “Midnight Tropics” is the scent and it’s amazeballs!

But lookie here. Not only did the hermetic glasses set include blue and green bottles, the third bottle was fuchsia! So of course, when the Radiant Orchid setting is being used, the fuchsia bottle will come out to play.  In total, I spent maybe 30 minutes scooping up all of these items from both Marshalls & T.J.Maxx. I’m a pro.

 Not only did I start revamping my dining room for spring, but I was able to get two different looks for under $70. Whether you need organization solutions, accents or major makeover supplies, head to T.J.Maxx and Marshalls. It’s the first weekend of spring so the shelves are stocked with spring cleaning and decor essentials.  If you want some inspiration beforehand, check out the T.J.Maxx and Marshalls Pinterest boards here and here. Happy Shopping!

  1. Love it! And that deep purple is one of my favorite colors. You can tell by the color of my couch…which is pictured in the post I did on my spring refresh c/o T.J. Maxx (http://theprettydish.com/2014/03/22/spring-refresh/). It’s so fun to see how other bloggers approached the challenge! :o) xo

  4. Thanks, Debbie!


  1. […] As you may already know, I’m a big fan of T.J.Maxx & Marshalls. From finding designer clothing & shoes for less to picking up fabulous home essentials, I’ve mastered the art of shopping in both stores. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend the T.J.Maxx & Marshalls Home Spotlight Preview at the Eventi Hotel in NYC. This home décor preview was just what I needed, since I recently decided to redesign my place for spring/summer 2014. […]
