Birthdays are the best. Gifts, wine, cake, I don't think I could name a better trio. So, when Magnolia announced a six-day sale for Joanna Gaines' birthday, I got some cake, and a cup of coffee (it's too early for wine), and scrolled through for their best gifts. 

Magnolia makes such wonderful pieces, you end up creating so much more than a beautiful room; you craft a lifestyle. The quality and style of their products are unmatched. This means that when you're given 20% off, you should definitely invest in a little luxury for less. 

I keep a general eye on Magnolia's products anyway, so have a very long wishlist. I've been trained in fragrances, so consider myself an expert on home scents and olfactive selection. I've also had a lot of practice sale shopping. But I couldn't keep this sale to myself. When I shared it with the Homes & Gardens team, our interiors and décor experts couldn't wait to get shopping. We have scoured Magnolia's birthday sale and this is what we are adding to our carts right now. Just add code CONFETTI at checkout for your 20% off.

Beautiful Blooms: Florals + Vases

When I think of birthdays, I imagine lots of beautiful blooms and bouquets. They're an effortless way to elevate your living spaces and dried flowers can add color without the same upkeep as fresh flowers. 

Dried flowers have a very sophisticated and vintage appeal, especially when arranged in an organic-looking vase. Styling them is an age-old craft, so if you need some help, we have an expert guide for decorating with dried flowers.

A Birthday Feast: Kitchen + Dining

A feast for the stomach should also be a feast for the eyes. After looking at Magnolia's kitchen and dining selection, I had been well-fed with visual delights. They have floral and natural styles or vintage and simple. Essentially, there's something for everyone. 

Mirror, mirror on the wall

These are certainly the fairest mirrors of them all. Magnolia's range covers different styles, from beachy to boho. I love them all, but clustering together different-sized mirrors is a personal favorite: it's a really stylish way to add depth and interest to your walls.

Dreamy Décor

The personality of every home is cultivated through details. I like having bold, simple statements, as you might guess from my selection. If you invest in a few stylish pieces, they help to create a sense of sophistication throughout your home.

It's not a birthday without candles

Birthdays, self-care, atmosphere: there's always a space for candles. Whether you're a scent savant or simply enjoy a beautiful home fragrance, these candles are wonderful. You can't go wrong with a classic candle, but for a little ambiance and earthiness, why not try some incense?

My Favorite

Choosing my favorite 15 products was hard enough, but, if you twisted my arm, I'd say you can't leave the Magnolia site without a vase and flowers. I have put one in my fireplace, to give the empty space a lift, but there isn't really anywhere they don't go.

I didn't get to include the candle holders and I would like to mention them here. They look very vintage and they're really increasing in popularity. Place them on different levels in the home to enhance the atmosphere.

I could do lots more honorable mentions, but I shouldn't, because I promised you a selection of the fifteen best buys. If you want to see more of what I love, you'll have to go to Magnolia before the sale ends.


How do I make the most out of sale shopping?

You're in the right place to start. Sales are a great opportunity to get a little luxury for less. I would recommend that you approach sales with three different categories:

If you've been on the hunt for a nice gold box to put your trinkets in, or have been thinking about getting some hooks for the wall, now is the time to get them. You'll get great quality and style, without a full price tag.

Thinking ahead is really helpful. If you see something that you know a specific person would love, buy it in advance. Candles, for example, make a great generic gift, so you can have one at the ready for last-minute presents.

What's a sale without a treat for yourself? If something catches your eye, now is the time to get it. 

How long is the sale on for?

The sale started on 13th April and will be going on until 18th. If you use the code CONFETTI, you'll get 20% off full-price items.
