{shopping for a styled table}

Last week, a few of my vendor friends and I did a little fall styled table shoot. As I ran around town trying to find different things to use, I couldn't help but feel a little amazed that this. is. my. life. I get to shop and buy linens and pretty dinnerware to use in shoots and in my home! It's just so much fun, and I feel so blessed. 

I thought that today I would share some of my favorite home stores to shop at when I'm creating styled shoots like the one I did last week.

Note that this photo isn't my table. I got it from 100 Layer Cake, though I will be sharing my table soon!

Kohl's :: I have found some really great items at Kohl's for both my home and for my styled shoots. They have a nice selection of linens, and always have good sales. You never know what cute little knick knacks you'll find in their clearance section too. 

Homegoods :: Oh, how can I ever explain how much I love Homegoods? I seriously go into that store at least twice a week, just looking to see what new and fun things they brought in that day. Last week I found some really pretty cake stands, and some Kate Spade place settings! I didn't have an extra $50 (per place setting) to spend, but it was a much better price there than anywhere else. I also found those plates above at Homegoods, sold for only $2.99 rather than the original $16 each.

Pier 1 :: Pier 1 always has a great selection of decor for shoots, and I love their glasses and dinnerware. While their original prices can get a little up there, you can usually wait for your favorite items to go on sale. I found the napkins I used last week at Pier 1. 

Target :: A few years ago, I never would have thought that I would be able to buy chic and unique items at Target, but that definitely isn't the case anymore. They have a variety of things that are comparable in quality and design to something you'd find at a higher class store. This is especially true now, with the Shops

What are your favorite stores to shop at for inexpensive home items?
