Our Night At Anthro

What a fabulous long weekend! We spent it filled with friends and family... and I had fun reflecting back on how amazing our little party was last Thursday night at Anthropologie!

This was by far one of the coolest things blogging has brought my way, and for everyone who made it possible I owe you a big THANK YOU! 

Here is a little summary of the fun we had putting it together and celebrating with some familiar faces, and lots of new faces.

One big THANK YOU I need to send out is to the lovely Eva and company at Midori. They ever so graciously provided me with numerous dupioni silk and satin ribbon options for this event. At the end of the evening there were a handful of supplies left but not a trace of their ribbons, I think almost every participant chose to use some in their creations.

Was this event set up by Anthro or you? I'd love to get in on one of their craft nights but just can't ever seem to find anything about them...
Looks like you had a great time!
