College Must-Have Products Suggested By Our Store Managers

With summer coming to an end, it’s almost time for college kids to head back to school. This week, our store managers focused on products they think college kids will need and enjoy throughout the school year. As you make your trips around town getting supplies, stop by and take a look at what our managers have suggested for your college student!

Budget-Friendly Smart TV- $79.99

After those long day of classes, it’s always nice to be able to relax and watch some TV in your dorm room. Paola, our Niagara Falls store manager, suggested the 32” Smart TV as a must-have item when going back to college. It’s the perfect size for the dorm room or small apartment. Also, having the ability to connect your TV to the internet and stream your favorite shows is ideal. Give yourself time to hang with your roommates and watch your favorite sports team or shows on your new Smart TV!

14” Floor Fan – $39.99

Just because you’re headed back to school doesn’t mean those hot days are behind you! There are plenty of warm days in August, September, and sometimes October! This 14” three-speed adjustable tilt portable floor fan can help. Having this fan will let you stay cool at night in those warm dorm rooms while you study or let yourself get a better night’s sleep. These smaller-sized fans save space in your dorm room and can be moved around easily. Head back to school ready to take on these last few weeks of summer heat.

Inflatable Chairs – $19.99

Get comfortable when you study or kick back after a long day of classes in your new inflatable chairs. These comfortable and colorful chairs are the perfect addition for any dorm room. They give you extra seating in your room when friends come to hang out and they give you a break from the uncomfortable dorm room chairs. There’s no doubt all of your friends will want a turn sitting on these inflatable chairs!

Clothespin String Lights – $11.99

Decorating your dorm room can be difficult. There’s limited space for photos and personal touches. Our assistant manager, Shelby, recommends clothespin string lights. They are a great solution. Add your own photos to these fun string lights. It’s easy to set up and takes up very little space. Plus, you can see all those photos of home in one place.

Give your dorm room a little update this year with a few products our store managers have suggested just for you! Stop by Dave’s to see all of our back to school products.

Once you have invested in patio furniture you may not want to switch it out for a few years. A fun way to make some changes to the overall look is by adding new patio cushions and pillows. We have lots of cushions and pillows available featuring bright or neutral colors, floral designs, and more.

Four Easy Decorating Ideas for New Year’s Eve

Although it may seem like a lot of work to decorate for another holiday immediately after Christmas, New Year’s Eve is right around the corner. Luckily, decorating for New Year’s Eve is actually a lot easier than it sounds. You can save time and money by reusing some of your Christmas decorations and mixing it with New Year’s Eve decorations to create a memorable party for your guests.

Update Your Greenery: If you have a Christmas wreath, swag or garland, you can re-purpose it for your New Year’s Eve celebration! Add some blue, silver or gold tinsel, lights, ornaments, and ribbon to instantly transform them and have them ready for your party! If your Christmas tree is still up, you can do the same for this as well!

Brighten Up The Night With Lights: In addition to adding lights to your wreaths and garland, any clear Christmas lights you have can easily be hung around the house. You can hang lights from the ceiling and combine them with some of these ceiling decorations to create a look of a star filled sky. Battery operated lights are great to decorate with because they can be placed anywhere. You can string some of these lights around your snack bowls or maybe line your windows and tables with them.

Use Your Ornaments: You can use ball ornaments to decorate around your home. Silver, gold and blue ornaments are perfect to use for New Year’s decor. Hang some of these ornaments on a chandelier to add some life to a room, or dangle a few from banisters or windows to fill up some empty space. Another great decorating idea is to take miniature silver & gold ball shaped ornaments, and place them inside empty champagne glasses to mimic the rising bubbles of champagne.

Add The Finishing Touches: Once you’ve gotten the main decorating out of the way, all that you have left is add some of our other decorations to complete the look. Don’t forget about party favors, too!

Tips to Quickly Decorate Your Yard for the Holidays

Zone Out Your Yard: If you haven’t yet decorated your yard, zoning it out can make the process a little easier. Before you begin decorating, divide your yard into zones and then decide what each zone will focus on. For example One zone can be dedicated to a decorated tree, while another zone can be dedicated to reindeer decorations.

Double up on Your Wreaths: Although most people put a wreath on their front doors, adding two wreaths to your door can provide your home with a fuller and more unique look.

Decorate With Winter Gear: Adding some winter gear to your outdoor decor can help give your home a welcoming look. Add a plaid scarf to your mailbox or lamppost or place an old wooden sled next to your front door.

Decorate Flower Beds With Ornaments: Your flower beds can’t stay colored in the winter. Add some color when the flowers won’t stay by adding some ornaments to your flower beds.

Add Pops of Red to Your Greenery: If you have green garland, wreaths, etc outside of your home, add some red ornaments to bring a little life to it.

Decorating with Artificial Flowers & Plants

Floral design is extremely important for giving a room life, color, and positive energy. It has been a cultural art form for centuries, because humans need the beauty of nature to survive. It’s true, we need the earth’s vegetation in order to be happy, just as we need the sun and fresh air. You don’t need a display of 100% real flowers to achieve this. While you want a few real plants to freshen air and energy, you can use artificial plants in most of your design to make things a little easier. Check out some of the styles below and consider which design suits your home or office the best.


Mixed Flowers

Give the look of natural floral arrangements with a professionally designed blend of flower types and accents.

Anthurium plants represent hospitality. Add a few stems to mixed floral designs if you love hosting parties and family gatherings. Not only are they gorgeous, but they invoke a welcoming atmosphere for guests.
