I’d never heard of At Home until recently, when a store opened in my area. When they say they’re a superstore, they’re not kidding! I easily spent two hours in the store on my first trip and I feel like I only saw half the store. I need to go back for a better look sometime when I have a babysitter for the day.
My goal for my first trip was to purchase items to use during the summer months. I wanted to have family and friends over to visit outside on my patio, which my husband and I are slowly trying to fix up.
If your patio furniture needs an update, At Home has an amazing selection of outdoor cushions and pillows, as well as patio umbrellas to provide shade. Mixing and matching the patterns is such a fun way to give my plain metal furniture a new look. They’re a little more money than what I was expecting, but the overall quality can’t be beat. When I invited friends over to visit outside, I couldn’t believe how comfy my old furniture was with the new cushions. We easily could have sat outside all day, had it not started raining and forced us inside! (I grabbed the watercolor flower pillows to take inside, since they’re nicer than my current couch pillows.)
My favorite thing I purchased during my trip was a metal folding side table with a pretty scroll pattern (shown in the second and third pictures on the bottom row of the above collage). It’s intended for outdoor use, but actually blends fairly well with my inside decor too. This is a great table for entertaining because it’s just the right size for storing snacks or games and activities. If you need baskets to keep everything organized, the white plastic basket shown on the tray table was just over $5 and is very sturdy.
At Home has a several oversized drink dispensers to choose from. These are very handy when you have lots of kids in your home, since you don’t need to worry about children spilling heavy jugs of juice or bottles of soda when they try to pour themselves a drink. I wanted one for entertaining, but I like it so much that I’m using it everyday now. (I fill it up with lemonade or fruit infused water and leave it in the refrigerator.)
