target collage - final

loved up with target: a giveaway!

1st November 2013

Target just opened up a few stores in Ottawa (finally!!), and obviously I have already been twice to do some browsing. Between the Nate Berkus stuff, the threshold collection, and the very Canadian “beaver canoe” line – I have a lot of items on my wish list. So when Target got in touch recently about their wedding campaign and catalogue, I was happy to take a look!

Isn’t this tablescape gorge? As soon as I saw it, I thought it would make such a sweet engagement party setup. Simple and low-key, but so pretty. Just the kind of party I would want.


Doesn’t the blue tableware and the white canister with sprigs in it totally make the table? The hubs and I didn’t have a formal engagement party, but this kind of reminds me of the lovely afternoon meals we had in France with Dan’s family shortly after we got engaged. Who doesn’t love to celebrate over wine and cheese? Deeelish.

    Love the new Target (the one at Hazeldean has a much better selection that Billings Bridge btw!). I would so give a Kitchen Aid mixer, I wanted one for my wedding last year and didn’t get it. It would be a great gift!

  • Andrea

    We actually have an engagement party to go to soon! Quality bakeware and cookware – the good stuff lasts! I particularly like the Giada De Laurentiis Cast-Iron Dutch Oven. Maybe one for me too?

  • cassie

    i would give the threshold towels in white- wish i had done white when we got married- you can bleach it! :)

  • Hannah K.

    I like doing a basket-type gift, so I might do wine night basket with wine, glasses, cheese board, etc…

  • Gilit

    This might sound crazy, but one of my favorite gifts I got was Pyrex with covers because you can use them to bake, refrigerate, and serve!

  • Angela

    The tiered serving plates for sure! So sweet and not typically something you would buy yourself!

  • Ashley F

    I’m getting married in the new year and I would love to get a three tiered stand (with the cupcakes)! I love baking but I also can picture using it to decorate, like painted pinecones at christmas!

  • Chaney

    LOVE those chalkboard labeled canisters. They’re just so fun!

  • Amy

    I’d love to give sets of things so they don’t end up with one plate and one bath towel… I’d go for the Threshold bath mat and coordinating shower curtain.

  • Brooke

    I love it, Target is my happy place.

    Love the ‘Crosley Ranchero Tabletop Radio – Red’. Retro and so cute!

    The SodaStream! Seems like one of those things that could be fun but people might not buy themselves.

  • Melody Mercer

    Oh my! I wish Target had been in Canada when we got married this summer. We’re pretty excited for our local Target to open next week!

    I may actually purchase the Wilton 3 tier cooling Grid (space saver!) for the next engagement party we attend!

  • Dana Z.

    The Riedel Vivant Champagne Flutes to toast the occasion! Lots of lovely items to choose from.

  • Joy

    KitchenAid 4.5 qt. Ultra Power Stand Mixer – Green Apple

    I’ve wanted a proper stand mixer for years, so this would be top of my my list. I have pretty much anything else I need home-wise.

    I am going to get that turquoise/lime shower curtain that is featured in the catalog soon, though; I saw it last Sunday at the Billings Target and knew that my bathroom needed yet another awesome Target shower curtain. ;)

  • Lisa Brown

    I would use the Threshold 16 Piece Bridgeport Gardens Dinnerware Set, so pretty.

  • Danielle

    Definitely one of their grill/griddlers! We got ours as a wedding present and still love our Saturday morning pancake ritual!

    I think the cake stand with cover is a great gift and affordable for most. I think for an avid decorator could use it for more than just serving desserts!

  • Cassondra Wiebe

    I actually logged on to read this right after being at Target! I felt those nice ribbed towels there and was super tempted. I have to say that the most memories have been made with those quirky small appliances you think you won’t use – we often wake up on a Saturday and make waffles together, and we’ve become known for our invented Christmas ice cream flavours in our ice cream maker. Also those Schwinn bikes are soo cute!

  • Margot C

    I would buy a Bodum 8-cup French Coffee Press for my friend.
