Anthro Craft Session

after seeing lots of in-store craft sessions at Anthropologie stores in my Instagram feed, I was so happy to finally be able to attend one myself yesterday, at the local Anthro store.

the table was nicely set, refreshments were there, and we were introduced to the store's visual merchandise team. they change the big window displays about every season, and the new theme for the window is Earth day, which is on Monday April 22nd. major guideline for this display is they have to work with reclaimed materials that are already in store. think shipping boxes, plastic wraps etc.

myself and about 7 other ladies showed up to help get this display ready. we crafted up a basket full of marigold flowers from crêpe paper and cut out some leaves for them as well. 

I really enjoyed sitting in a corner of the store, meeting lovely new people, chatting about the store and the visual part of it, and producing some sunny looking flowers together.
the display will be up in about a week or two, I will make sure to get some pictures and show them to you.

have you ever attended a similar event? I would love to hear about your experiences!

wishing you a sunny Spring weekend
