If there’s any filmmaker worth taking home decor inspiration from, it’s Nancy Meyers. From Something’s Gotta Give to The Parent Trap, the director’s movies are remembered just as fondly for their characters’ charming, aspirational homes (especially the iconic Nancy Meyers-inspired kitchens) as for the stories. And if you’ve ever wanted to replicate the Nancy Meyers look but worried it’d be out of your budget, well, worry no more. 

In an absolutely thrilling Instagram post, Meyers revealed that she picks up her flowers from Trader Joe’s. Stars, they’re just like us!

On Tuesday, May 28, Meyers took to Instagram to share a snapshot of some stunning pink peonies sitting in her living room near a sea of coffee table books and plush white accent chairs.

“Trader Joe’s peonies 😊,” she captioned the post.

Suffice it to say, fans were stoked to see that the design icon shared some of their very own shopping habits.

“Nancy is JUST like us 😍❤️,” one Instagram user commented.

“So relatable that even Nancy Meyers shops at Trader Joe’s ❤️❤️,” another commenter wrote.

If you’d also like to add some stunning peony blooms to your home, peonies are finally back in stock at Trader Joe’s stores (so you should be able to easily find one near you!), where you can grab five stems of the flowers for $9.99. 

But don’t wait too long to stock up! Peony season typically lasts from late April to mid-June, so make sure you grab some while they’re still at their peak. You can make your peonies last forever with a few simple tricks so that they look gorgeous on your table all summer long.

If you can’t get your hands on peonies before they sell out or the season ends, there are endless ways to cheat the system. Trader Joe’s is selling a fan-favorite $4 peony blossom candle that shoppers rave about because it smells just like the real thing. Light one, and you’ll get the scent and smell of fresh flowers without having to worry about keeping them alive. Even better, your guests will wonder where that beautiful smell is coming from.

Your home will be smelling just like Nancy Meyers’ home before you know it!
