Gosh I am sorry I have taken so long to post! I had a sudden burst of business, and it all just got away from me. But the good news is that I have been busy with wonderful artistic things. Well what with going to a special Anthropologie event on Wednesday, having a girls night in with the horrendous Project Accessory on Thursday, the theater on Friday, and the ballet on Saturday.... Phew so much culture! :) So lets begin with the beginning. Thats right, I went to an event at anthro! But better than that was who was hosting it... Cassandra of Coco+Kelly! I have been reading her blog for years now, it was one of the first blogs I ever read in fact. It is really an eye candy blog, everything is so luxurious, decadent and downright gorgeous. I highly recommend it. And of course I had a celebrity moment when I saw her in person at Anthropolgie, I was super blushy and silent in awe. Rather embarrassing for me, but quite entertaining for boyfriend.
Anywho, the event was a tutorial on how to put together a non-traditonal, fun and eclectic holiday table top. Cassandra did a great job of layering dish-ware and showing how each place setting can have its own personality. Which I think is a great idea. Wouldn't you want to sit down and the floral and green stripes place setting rather than boring setting number 4? I sure would.
Oh yes and I also worked up the nerve to ask for a photo together. Yay.
When perusing Anthropologie's website I noticed a new feature; "Table Top Artistry" a table top design tool. This new addition is not a coincidence I am sure. They must really want to push their tableware. None the less it is great fun, you should go play. Here is what I came up with, obviously not as good as Cassandra:
So that is my celebrity story. Well... she is a celebrity to me at least. And I am now totally inspired to host a fabulous holiday tea party with layers of pretty porcelain, you?
