The Most Frivolous Thing in our Home

disco ball

I bought a disco ball off ebay for $36 in February.

Some of you noticed polka dot lights in our bedroom photos–it’s the disco ball.

He sits over there on my husband’s side on the table.  And for about two hours every day, puts on a show.

It’s quite possibly, the most needless purchase I’ve ever made, but for under $40 it was worth it for the fun it adds to our home. I think every home needs a little quirk.  Plus, my husband has rented one in the past for parties at our church, now, he can just use ours!  See, saving the church money, that’s me and my disco ball.  That’s how we roll.

I originally bought him for the coffee table in the front room.

And even tried him in the laundry room but, I realized that the sun doesn’t shine there.  And putting your disco ball where the sun don’t shine is just disco ball abuse.  It’s a waste of a perfectly good disco ball.

Disco balls.  They’re not just for discos anymore.

What’s the most frivolous thing you’ve purchased for your home? Was it worth it?


  1. I have one in my office, my hubs insisted on buying it for me when we were Christmas shopping this last year. He said it’s all he’s ever heard me talk about since we met 6 years ago, so he bought it. I hung it in my office, until just TODAY, when a home stager came through (we’re listing our house next month) and told me I should take it down. Sadly, I just did. However, unbeknownst to her, I will be strategically placing it elsewhere in the house. I don’t care what she says, it’s quirky and whimsical and so is my house, and that’s exactly the vibe I want it to give off.

  2. Love this! I have a vintage disco ball I’m was wondering where to put in my new home. ANYWHERE! Thanks for sharing

  3. I picked up a disco ball at Hobby Lobby in the Christmas decorations (half price) for under $10.00. The spots of light in the room make me so happy! Just pure fun

  4. Hey, where do you have this wallpapers from? I love the pattern of it!

  5. Love your bedroom decor! Where did you find the faux cowhide rug?

  8. The most important thing you will always take care of in your home is your bedroom. I have seen all the photos depicted in the post. It seems to be beautiful and amazing. The decorations and arrangements you made in the bedroom are so amazing. I really loved those lights and table arrangements shown in the post. It’s nice to see the post.

  9. The polka dot light which is made from disco balls seems amazing. I guess this is a wonderful idea for many homeowners to make their bedrooms more attractive. You really got the disco balls at cheap rate, and it has multi uses too. I loved to get one.

    Many home seekers yearn to own houses or villas in Kochi city. Kochi has become the dream destination for the youth lately. The rapid development, metro connectivity, development of the smart city and the necessities of urban living attract the young and old alike to settle down in Kochi. Though the city life is more associated with apartments, due to their availability and convenience, many people prefer villas over apartments.


    Gated Community Living

    As the distances get shorter and as families get smaller, community living makes a whole lot of difference among the urban crowd. Gated communities or villas are sought out as a premium living space for the upper middle class families and above, who can afford quality living. Exceptional security and superior community living are the two major advantages of gated villas.

    Gated communities and Luxury Villas in Cochin come with a host of amazing facilities and amenities commonly available to the closed community.

    Easy Connectivity and Accessibility

    One of the major upsides of living in reputed villa projects is that they come with the best modern facilities and conveniences that are very easily accessible. Builders place their esteemed projects in the prime residential areas near schools, colleges, supermarkets, malls, hospitals, and other buzzing areas so that the residents have quick access to the outside world any given time of the day or night. With the Metro making its way through the hectic streets of Kochi city, soon connecting Thripunithura and Kakkanad, locations nearby the metro stations are becoming prime destinations for apartment and villa projects in Kochi. This is one of the major attractions provided by Melonwood homes whose projects are in strategic locations along with Kochi city.
