A few weeks ago, the fab folks at Marshalls & TJ Maxx hosted a “Virtual Behind the Seams” live video chat with style expert Alison Deyette showcasing some info about their unique gift selection & the fresh selection of merchandise available throughout the season…

Party Finds: Vera Wang Cabochon Flutes, Palm Restaurant Mixing Bowl, Anna Mae’s Chocolate Peppermint Cupcake Mix, Cuisinart Mini Muffin Pan, Sweet Olive Designs Scroll Plate

Then, a few days after the live video chat, the Marshalls/T.J. Maxx folks sent an adorbs stocking filled with tons of goodies from their stores including: a pair of magenta leather gloves, pretty picture frame, holiday notepad set, embellished hair ties, luxe body scrub, peppermint candies and…a $50 Marshalls/T.J. Maxx gift card to go holiday shopping!

Because they are known for off-price shopping & the “thrill of the find”, I wanted to see if I could find goodies for a future MG Prosecco & Cupcake Party that I plan on hosting. With up to 60% less than department and specialty store prices, I took the $50 Marshalls/T.J. Maxx gift card they gave to me in the stocking stuffer & headed out to Marshalls! And, as you dahlings can see in the top pic, I scored almost everything I needed to throw my fabulush soiree – all for $50!!! YAY & thank you to Marshalls & TJ Maxx for the wonderful selection & savings for my Prosecco & Cupcake Party <3

Question: Speaking of shopping, do you lovelies think Marshalls and T.J.Maxx are a better way to Christmas shop?
