I won't lie. It was hard to find cupcake items and a bit expensive to decorate and equip my kitchen all cutesy. However, I found a few thrify deals that I wanted to share with you all!
I became obsessed with home decorating stores. Never, did I find Bed, Bath and Beyond so exciting than when I needed to organize and decorate my kitchen. I became a BB&B coupon addict. Dare I share that I found myself looking through my local recycling center for coupons? Yep...I got a little crazy...but I got a butt load of coupons!! Rest assured, I'm better now. I am no longer the Sméagol hiding in your local recycling center. I have matured into sexy Legolas.
I started my decor hunt with Home Goods, and I found cute cake related wall art on clearance. I got the above piece that I hung above my stove for $4.00! I desperately wanted a cupcake timer, but they were more than $20+ so I settled for a cute strawberry timer for $6 from World Market. Then I found the silly cupcake sponge at my local Five Below. Lucky for me I found a whole bunch of cupcake goodies at a nearby Dollar General. I was able to get cupcake shaped plates, which I am using as a spoon rest. I also purchased cupcake dessert plates, place mats, recipe cards, pot holders and towels.
Just about everything was a dollar, so I pretty much bought out Dollar General of all their cupcake items. They had so much and so many choices! How could I settle with just one pattern?
Cupcake place mats, and a cupcake sharing plate that I got for $3.00!
I spend quite some time on these chairs while computin' so I wanted some cute, bright cushions to go with the cutesy theme. This past weekend, I found 4 cushions on clearance for $5.98 each at Pier 1 imports. They were originally $24 each. I just about screamed in excitement when I found them.
I found this cute cupcake container at Marshall's for less than $10
Cupcake wall art - found at Home Goods and Kirklands
Note the cupcake tray and DIY cupcake clock
I wanted a really cute cupcake clock, but they were sooooo pricey...so I just made one myself
My most favorite item is this giant cupcake, cookie jar. I splurged and purchased this sucker from Pier 1 imports for $25. Compared to my other bargain finds, this purchase was expensive.
I am not completely done with my Cupcake dream kitchen. I eventually want new curtains. Currently, I have white curtains with purple grapes, but one of these days I will be sewing my own curtains.
I hope this was helpful for those wanting to find cupcake items for their kitchen. You would think decor is easy to find, but it was a total scavenger hunt for me. Even when I did find cute things, they would be ridiciously expensive! I am glad I held out and bought my items for a bargain price. I will continue to share cute kitchen decor I find with you all <3
