Raise your hand if you have a weakness for dishes like I do! If you've been around here long you know I'm a fan of mixing and matching what I have, but a new piece here and there thrown into the mix makes things more fun and gives me even more options; it's always an easy solution when I'm feeling the need for a little refresh in the kitchen.  And in the Summer when the kitchen is often the last place you might want to be, a few new pieces or kitchen tools sure can make those day in, day out tasks a lot more fun, and even the simplest of meals feel extra special.  

I found a few of the prettiest new pieces at Walmart recently, some with a vintage feel, some more modern... the perfect mix of everything I like.  I have a big crush on colored glassware right now and these pink tumblers were too sweet to pass up! 

Even though our Summer hasn't given my family much "down" time with us all going our separate ways most of the time, I'm taking every chance I can to gather everyone up around a meal as often as possible.  Although it's tempting not to want to be in the kitchen much during the Summer, spending time together doing something as simple as making dinner together or baking cookies gives us a few minutes to connect face to face in the midst of our coming and going. 

Summer is the best time to have a little family fun in the kitchen, and you can find the cutest things you need all at Walmart Home, from new dishes for indoor or outdoor meals, to entertaining pieces, to small appliances for afternoon snacks or movie nights, to ice cream makers to serve a crowd!  

Here are a few more Home Decor and Outdoor items that caught my eye from Walmart Home's Summer line.  I also included a few craft projects that would be super fun with the kids- use the white flour sack towels to make custom tie-dye napkins for your Summer table, and if your littles haven't discovered Perler beads they were one of our favorite craft projects when our kids were little.  I'm pretty sure they still have stacks of their creations hanging out in their closets, ha! (Those striped beach towels are THE BEST... we have 4 and they're such a generous size and so plush, perfect for poolside!)

Be sure to look for the brand new Wow & Now section for cute, trendy, fun items at buy now prices in select stores and online beginning July 19.  If you see something you like snatch it up, because when it's gone, it's gone!
