Absolutely not. Pick up these products from Walmart and start hosting bomb brunches in your own home to save some cash moneyyyy.

1. A table runner that is both affordable and perfect for gussying up your standard table for a classy brunch.

Transform your boring table into something a bit more....adult(?) by adding this chevron, knit table runner. It fits between four and eight people, which should be more than enough to hold your Sunday funday squad.Promising review: "This table runner is just what I wanted to spruce up my dining room for the beginning of fall weather. It actually reminds me of cozy socks and hot cocoa. The runner is a great size, and it seems to be made well. I've had it on the table for a few weeks already, and it still looks good as new." —AMarie2009Get it from Walmart for $14.99 (available in four colors).

2. A 19-piece kitchen utensil and gadget set to make you smile while you're stressing out over how long to bake your breakfast casserole for.

I dare you not to grin after glancing at that heart-eye emoji kitchen timer. This set is so colorful and fun! It would make for a nice starter kit for a new cook, but would also be the perfect way to upgrade any dingy, old utensils you have lying around the house. The kit comes with the timer, a 10-piece measuring spoon and cup set, two silicone spatulas, a whisk, two tongs, and a three-piece strainer set. This product certainly measures up. ;)Get it from BuzzFeed's Tasty collection at Walmart for $14.88.
