Staging this house was a lot of fun. The room I loved staging the most was the kitchen. I went to Home Goods and Hobby Lobby and stocked up on things for the house. Hopefully the house will sell so I can use them in my own home! Anyway, I had seen another blogger make a lemonade station for the 4th of July and I thought it was very cute so I copied it and used it in the house for the month of September.
The faux lemons and berries are from Hobby Lobby while the macarons, straws and cups are from Home Goods. The macarons were a prop so I just left them out and they got hard (side note, the expiration date on the Home Goods macarons was 2015…no thanks!)
When the weather turned colder I decided to swap out the lemonade station with a hot cocoa station.
I got all the food at Kroger and I put it all out right before a showing. Well, it was those buyers who ended up putting in an offer for the house. Less than a week later, the home inspector came out to do the inspection on the home. Later that day I went over and several of the marshmallows were gone and one of the biscotti was also gone. WHO DOES THAT? I would NEVER eat something laid out on a kitchen counter of a total stranger’s home ESPECIALLY if I have been hired to provide a service and NOT as a guest.
But I digress.
I also got some faux cupcakes from Hobby Lobby and a cute cookbook from Half Priced Books and used those as a display.
I’d love to use these displays in my own home for decor, but knowing my kids, they’d get hungry and try to eat the plastic cupcakes. Well, when the house is closed, I’ll pack it all up and wait for the next home to flip! I’m a glutton for punishment, I guess.
Shout out to my oldest daughter, Lauren, who’s antique Ball jar is being used as a cute vase!
