Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to hang out with some fabulously crafty Colorado ladies at my local Anthropologie store. We spent the morning honoring our mothers by making all sorts of fabric flowers for them. I love these kinds of events because they give me the chance to meet all kinds of new and favorite friends. I can bond with
anything anyone over food so if you want to be friends, just bring me a toaster strudel and a Diet Coke. BFFs for life.
I’m sharing quite the load of photos from the Anthro event! And this isn’t even all of them! The lovely Jennifer Little of Sugar Photography took these gorgeous pics. I seriously envy her talent. I envy anyone who can work with a camera.
I wanted to have all of the petals pre-cut to save everyone some time. I cut so much fabric! And sweet Logan donated some of his time as well. We’re talking around 1,300 petals in all different fabrics and sizes. Logan is a professional now. Just ask him.
Whenever I am talking about food, I have a hard time describing how truly happy it makes me. We served all sorts of goodies including chocolate muffins, cinnamon swirl bread, CINNAMON BUNS, and fruit (for the healthy folk). There was a selection of beverages including mimosas, coffee, and water bottles wrapped in the best vintage fabric in town.
My darling friend, Maggie, made these super cute and simple name tags. I’m never throwing mine away. I’m a total hoarder.
Here come the ladies!
This is cute Annabelle! You might remember her for her work on our Eat Drink Create-Spring video! Holy talent. You can see more of her work over on her blog or her videography site, Evergreen Lane Productions.
These. Straws. I’m a collector of paper straws and these floral ones by Shop Sweet Lulu are my absolute favorite. I have about 50. Will I use them? One a year over the next 50 years.
I was so happy to meet everyone who came. Everyone is soooooo friendly. I love that about people. This girl! Abbie! She drove all the way from Steamboat Springs. If you are not from the Denver area, that’s far. I’ve never even been there before. I’m too lazy to drive.
These sweet littles were the highlight of my morning. Seeing how much they loved creating made me SO excited to have a little girl.
I can’t thank the gals at Anthropologie enough for letting me come and hang out with them! They were total rock stars. Also, I get nervous standing next to them because they’re all so fashionable. I’ll just stick to my belly band. 😉
Check back later this week because I’ll be sharing a tutorial for these fabric flowers! You can make a bouquet. You can make a brooch. You can make a million of each.
