I’m Hosting a Party: HomeGoods Happy!

It is no secret that one of my favorite décor shopping spots in a real store is without a doubt, HomeGoods!  I’ve been a fan for years and there are many things around my house from HomeGoods, including linens, lamps, furniture, accessories, prints and pillows.  SO many great things that have made my house a home.

Take a look at all the pics here…these are all items in my home from HomeGoods, some beautiful and affordable items.

One of the best things about HomeGoods is, you never know what you’ll uncover the next time you visit.  That’s part of the fun and if there is a downside, it would be that the item that you fell in love with more than likely won’t be there the next time you walk in the store.

So, the lesson for HomeGoods is this.  Grab it while you can!  They constantly get in new items and you never know what you’ll find.  All at great prices too, I might add!

HomeGoods is the only store of its kind that offers top quality designer and brand name home fashions and accessories, including unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, for every room in the house, for every style at prices up to 60% less than department or specialty stores prices

I can tell you, I’ve scored some great things at HomeGoods over my years of shopping there.


My bedroom lamps and this planter came from HomeGoods. 

Now, here’s the really fun part!

HomeGoods has chosen ME to be a hostess for a HomeGoods shopping party right here in Atlanta!  That means I’ll be inviting YOU to join me.  Calling all bloggers and readers alike who want to be introduced to the HomeGoods shopping experience.  If you’d like to join me on Saturday, January 19th at the Northpoint Mall HomeGoods, please leave a comment here as an RSVP.

The shopping times will be early morning, before the store opens, with freshly restocked merchandise from 8 to 9:30 a.m

Please only tell me you’re coming if you think you can make it, because I don’t want to turn anyone away.  The first 35 people who RSVP are invited and encouraged to bring a friend who you think would enjoy shopping at HomeGoods before the store opens.  I’d love to see you there! 


There will be fun prizes and games and you will all get a giftcard to start your shopping spree, with opportunities that morning to win even more giftcards to shop with.

It is going to be a fun time and I’m so excited to get this opportunity to shop with some of my readers and fellow bloggers here in Atlanta.  Can you imagine the fun we will have?  If you haven’t been to a HomeGoods before, you are especially encouraged to join us. You’re in for a treat!

    I’d love to come! How do we RSVP yes?

  2. OMG….how I wish I lived in the Atlanta area. I would be there with bells on! I. LOVE. HomeGoods. My closest HomeGoods is 50 miles away in the Chicago area but we try to get there as often as possible. Even my husband enjoys browsing with me. Hope you all score big time there!

  3. Oh how fun!! I want to come! I think I should be able to next Saturday but not sure if I have a friend to bring with me. Will have to see.

    I love Homegoods too! In fact was just about to go today to see if they had a chair sort of like the one you have. Now I will wait and see if I can use a gift card from the party to buy it.

    Thanks for hosting this, Rhoda!


    Oh, please, please, please let me be in the first 35!!!!!!! I love your blog and live 2 miles from North Point!

  26. Too bad I am in OKC. I have found out that we are getting Home Goods store here in this next year. So excited! And, I have you to thank for putting me onto it. I will certainly keep my eye out and keep you in mind when I shop our new store.

  27. Yay!!! How fun!!! I hope there is still room for me! I would love to come 🙂 I have a friend in mind who is buying a new, bigger home she’ll need to decorate, I’ll see if she can join me.

    • My friend said she can join me. I saw your reply below that we made the cut 🙂 I am so excited! Thank you!

      • Well, she can’t make it after all. She got a call that they are showing her house tomorrow morning so she has to get the kids out of the house. Just wanted to let you know in case it frees up space for someone else who wanted to come. I will be there with bells on though! I can’t wait!! 🙂

  28. Can you please come out to the Costa Mesa, CA store and have a party here? I love Home Goods.

  29. Lesli Messinger says:

    Just wanted you to know that I am a HUGE fan of HomeGoods here in Savannah. I always find great things there and the people are so friendly. HomeGoods is my #HappyPlace. 🙂

  30. So jealous, Homegoods is the best. I have to limit my visits there as you just can’t leave without buying something!

  31. I would love to come! Sounds exciting!

  32. I would love to join you and others. Please let me know if I am one of the lucky 35 people.

  33. Hi Rhoda! Count me in! HomeGoods is my most favorite home decor store. It was so lovely to see you today. Have a good week!

  34. I just want to say I agree with you “I love Home Goods too”!
    Unfortunately I can’t join you since I live hundreds of miles away. By the way your home is looking fantastic! You have a designer’s touch that’s for sure.

  35. Hi, ladies! All of you above who have said you are coming, are definitely invited! I think we have room for just a few more, so I’ll see who else signs up, but all the comments above this one, I’ll see you there!

  36. I would love to come Rhoda… sounds like so much fun! Home Goods is my all time favorite store EVER!
    It was great to see you today! 🙂

  51. I love the place and I was shocked to see one location closing!I had several hours to kill while my husband had hip surgery. Wow….a huge store bacically cleared out. I did get 4 great pillows for my daughter at bargan prices. But that was just about the onlything left.

  52. Hi, girls! With all of these RSVP’s, I will need to close it down for now, so all of you above this comment plan on being there! I’ll see you then. I won’t be sending out a reminder, so just show up at 8 a.m. at the Northpoint HomeGoods next Sat. and I will see you there!! Looking forward to it.

  53. Seriously jealous…I wish I lived in the ATL area! HomeGoods is one of my favorite stores. Have fun y’all!

  54. I am so stinkin’ jealous. I know that HomeGoods quite well as I used to work in North Point and stayed at the Hilton Garden when I was there. You have a wonderful shopping party!


  55. This is sooooo crazy…..I just found your blog randomly on pinterest, and it so happens that i live in Alpharetta, too. So weird. I would love, love, love to come, but I am going to be in Savannah that weekend 🙁 I hope you have another event soon! I love Home Goods!

  56. I know the invitation is closed but please, please, please could someone count me as their friend so I can come??!! I moved from that area a year ago and I am in HomeGoods withdrawal!! I will set my alarm and drive the 65 miles to be a part of this if someone will “friend” me!

  57. Nothing to do with Home Goods. Love the place here in Massachusetts. Just wanted to say that I am sure to pass along info about your website. I can’t believe you have bead board wallpaper. I just this week had my bathroom finished with bead board and would have loved to have used the wallpaper instead. I will remember this for my next project!

  58. If you have room for one more please let me know.

    I live in Roswell and love your blog.

  59. Yikes…..was so busy unpacking that I did not read your post earlier………:(
    Sorry I’m too lat but it sounds like a great adventure for all.

    Hope to see you at your Open House…( may not remember me, I am the gal who was moving to Atlanta from Rhode Island..we finally made it …we are happily here in Woodstock)

    Look forward to hearing about all the fun at Home Goods on your blog!!

  60. I am a huge fan of HomeGoods. I would be there in a heartbeat if I wasn’t in NC. Have fun!

    Hi Rhoda,

    I just love Home Goods and would love to join you. Can you please let me know if it is too late. If it is I hope you and all the lucky women have a wonderful time.


  74. I love Home Goods. I wish I could join in your group visit, but I’ll have to settle for visiting my local Home Goods store in Norwalk, CT. I can’t wait to see the photos of all your fabulous finds.

  75. Thanks for the invitation. Will be joining you at Home Goods.

  76. Rhoda, can you squeeze in one more?? I would love to meet you and shop with you at HomeGoods, one of my favorites too. I’ll bring the coffee! Just put me on the wait list if need be…

  77. Wish I lived closer!(i’m in NJ) but I love to shop at Home Goods. I never know what I will find or be inspired by when I’m browsing around the store.

  78. I love HG, it is one of my favorites, our home looks like I own a vested interested in the store, I have so many items from there! LOL.


  79. OK, all you other girls who RSVP’d, come on and join us! I may run out of giftcards to get you started shopping, but we’ll have some fun anyway. I don’t want to turn anyone away & I’m sure there will be last minute cancellations anyway. So, come on out. We’ll stretch the giftcards as far as they will go & there will be chances to win more too! Can’t wait to see you all.

  80. I want to come to and I live close to this mall. It looks like you opened it up, so I plan to come, but if for some reason you do need to turn people away please let me know. thanks and hope to see you there!!!

  81. Marie in Va says:

    Wished I lived in the Atlanta area! This sounds like fun!

  82. Would love to have gone Rhoda :(. I love the products you have bought, I will have to check if they have an online store and sell overseas. The lamp is so pretty, I like the little extra detail..the small ball on the top of the shade, it takes it apart from other similar lamps.

    Hope your party is successful.


  83. Connie McCallum says:

    Rhoda, just reading my emails. I would love to come and join you as I live like 10 min from it. Hope there is still space.

  84. Valerie and Connie, go ahead and come! Like I said, I might run out of giftcards, but we will have some fun anyway.

  85. Would love to be included in your group at the fabulous Home Goods in Alpharetta, Georgia !! Also wanted to say how wonderful it has been watching you turn your life around, what an inspiration you have been! So thankful you had a loving and supportive family to help you persevere:)!

  86. Sorry to have not read your blog in a few days! I am a faithful reader and live in the area. I look forward to your great pictures and post about the party. Have a great time, any chance of a second party??? Keep up the fantastic work and thanks for sharing all your talents.

  87. Billie and Kim, yes, you can go ahead and join us too! I’m not going to turn anyone away, the more the merrier. Homegoods will have to let us all in! 🙂

  88. Wendy Harris says:
