If you visited the site in the past 24 hours you might have noticed several old posts that somehow got republished. Sorry about that! I seemed to have fix the problem, so you won’t have to read about my PRE-wedding nervousness yet AGAIN.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…
If you haven’t heard about OneKingsLane.com, you’re missing out. It’s a sale site, just like GiltGroupe.com or HauteLook.com, but it focuses on home decor. In addition to their regularly discounted items, they have lots of amazing designers who select their favorite items from their store or travels for Tastemaker Tag sales. Even at up to 70% off retail, most of the items featured on the site are way out of my budget, but it’s fun to look and from time to time they have some steals (like this vintage Louis Armstrong poster , below, that I got for $60 as part of a New Orlean’s designer collection, complete with Hurricane Katrina water damage. Not that water damage is ‘chic’ by any means. I just like the history it adds to it.)
They are also a great resource for wedding finds on occasion, such as cake servers and stands. Today they’re featuring paper placemats from Belle Banquet (you have to sign up for a free membership to the site in order to see them). They normally retail at $48 for a set of $12, but OneKingsLane.com is selling them for $19. They come in several funky patterns, and they would add a ton of personality to your wedding tables for less than $200 (depending on your guest count). You can mix and match, or stick with the same pattern for every place setting. A couple of my favorite designs are below. The sales don’t last forever, and they tend to sell out FAST (I’ve yelled at my computer on multiple occasions trying to buy something that another member has snatched up), so hurry up!
