The Design*Sponge at Home book tour is coming to a close, and I am so excited to announce our final US event!** We started with Philadelphia on our first leg of the tour, and we’re bringing it back home for one final event at a very special place: the Anthropologie Home Office. If you’ve ever read or heard about this space, you know how amazing it is. It is the headquarters of the whole URBN brand, and it’s a spectacular space to throw one last blowout event and DIY celebration.
For this event, we’ll do a special DIY project that’s different from those done at the other book tour events. We’ll be teaching people how to make their own gorgeous holiday wreaths using all sorts of local flora and odds and ends that we’re collecting from our favorite shops. Each attendee will go home with a stunning wreath to use in their own home or give away as a gift (we’ll provide a range of pretty ribbons for hanging the wreaths or tying gift bows). After the craft class, I’ll be signing copies of Design*Sponge at Home (which you could use for another nice gift), and we’ll have drinks and treats to celebrate the end of the book tour. We’ll also have a gorgeous backdrop designed by our own Halligan Norris, against which you can take photos of your friends.
Since this is our final East Coast event, we’re opening it up to not just 30, but 75 people! So if you’re interested in joining us, please sign up below. (There will not be a general admission after the craft; this is one big craft class event). Last time, the tickets sold out quickly, so please order now if you’d like to reserve a spot. The details are below. We hope to see you there to celebrate the end of our tour! xo, grace
