Anthropologie recently shared some tips for decorating your outdoor space both day and night when entertaining all your jazzy, cool friends this summer over on their blog….and sound the alarm: I’m famous! Just kidding. I am not. BUT, if you squint your eyes and view this post on an enormous screen, you’ll see that there I am in Anthro-land watering “my” abundance of plants and enjoying a refreshing something-or-other with my pals around my cool round low-top table.
I mean, look at how cool I am. I hand-squeeze lemons to make fresh lemonade because — duh — only the best for my friends.
I kid. I wish I could throw a party like this. But alas, when I have my friends over, we drink bottom-shelf champagne, eat non-artisanal cheese, and play Cards Against Humanity while General Gazpacho begs to sit in one of our laps. But hey, its still a good time! So when Anthropologie reaches out and asks you to come hang out with them for a day and help share some tips, well kids: you say yes.
So let me tell you about this photoshoot. The home styling team was there setting up all their seasonal home goods from kitchenwares to pillows, and larger furniture pieces and getting to witness them in action was such a treat because they are mucho, mucho talented (and equally kind and funny). They had a pretty different set-up when I first arrived that was stunningly layered and beautiful and I immediately wanted to move in, and then after getting some feedback from the higher-ups, had to drastically change the layout and setup. And they did this like it was no-thing. No biggs. That is a major show of talent – to be able to switch up layouts on a dime and create equally great alternatives.
So since I got to hang out, play dress up, water plants, and mess around with some of their home things, I thought I’d share some of my favorite pieces that I interacted with that day and secretly wanted to smuggle home. Here’s my round-up!
