Last Thursday I had the pleasure of co-hosting The Land of Nod holiday event in the San Francisco Bay Area. Michaela, my fab intern last summer and blogger, co-hosted with me, and along with The Makery Los Altos and The Land of Nod, we had the best time! Over 100 guests enjoyed a special night of crafting, conversation, and shopping.
Michaela and I designed a fun holiday vignette using lots of bright & colorful The Land of Nod products – a fabulous shopping destination for baby & children’s furniture, decor, accessories, toys and more. As a nod (no pun intended!) to being at The Markey, we featured a kids’ craft area with the play table, adorable zig zag stockings, and a Christmas tree decked with the cutest pom pom garland and ornaments. To ground the space, we created a chandelier out of brightly hued ornaments. We were thrilled with the way it turned out!
Land of Nod gave us an adorable Cottage Dollhouse to decorate for the event. I had so much fun decorating it that I even created valences with left over fabric samples.
It’s now the home of my kids’ “Little Bunny and Blue Bunny” and they are very pleased with the new digs. Always nice to have happy clients!
Michaela decorated the outside with flowers in the window boxes, wreaths and garland. So cute!
The Makery hosted our event and if you haven’t heard of their shop and live in the San Francisco Bay Area, get your bootie down there ASAP! It’s a crafters dream Full of every craft essential you could imagine, the Makery hosts amazing parties, workshops and has unique supplies and decor for custom parties. Everyone who came to our event had a ball making little adornments for their Elf on the Shelf characters. Each guest left with one, which I thought was the cutest thing ever!
In addition, there were eight other The Land of Nod parties across the whole United States last Thursday…
