Anthropologie + Ampersand Valentine's Day Workshop

Ampersand Design Studio

On Tuesday, we had the complete pleasure of hosting a Valentine's Day card-making workshop with our local, Town Center,  Anthropologie store!! We hosted two sessions, one from 6-7pm and one from 7:30-8:30pm and we had a packed house full of awesome card-making!!! We did a few of our own examples as you can see here, but we were completely blown away by the cards that all of our guests came up with! We suggested that everyone could bring a photo to customize their cards and it was just amazing seeing all these darling images used to create handmade Valentine's Day cards! It definitely got us ready to celebrate the day we all dedicate to love.

We selected some colored and patterned papers, some pretty awesome washi tapes from The Washi Shop! Then we added some heart punches, letter stickers, and heart stickers, all from Shop Sweet Lulu and we just let everyone go to town! Super easy to do yourself at home with just a few supplies!

We found so many fun photos on instagram from our event---if you want to check them out, like this one above, go to #anthroevents to see all the Valentine's Day crafty festivity! And of course, you'll get to see other Anthro Events across the country!

Thank you so much to all of you who came out to craft with us (too bad we didn't capture a group photo of the second session) and a HUGE thank you to our co-hosts at Anthropologie, TIffany and Benjamin! You guys sure make hosting fun!! And big thanks to Benjamin for being our Valentine's Day paparazzi to capture the fun!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY, EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!

Ampersand Design Studio

We're have THE BEST time collecting supplies and putting together a few ideas for our Valentine's Day card-making workshop with Anthropologie next week? If you are, we're LOVING the idea of using photos! So bring a copy of your favorite instagram, photo booth or any photo that will fit on a 5"x7" card! We'll have even more examples for you at the workshop! Hope you all can make it!

When looking for pieces for your home, we feel like there's no reason to go conservative! Why not have a little fun with home decor? Ya know, not everything needs to be neutral colors! We say, go bold or go home! We rounded up a few colorful pieces to add just that touch of fun that you're looking for!

Mother’s Day Anthro Event // painted flower pot DIY

Ampersand Design Studio

We already shared a little recap of our Mother's Day Anthropologie Event here, but we thought it was only fair to make sure that all of you, even if you couldn't make it to the event, could still do this fun little painted flower pot DIY! We've shared our super-easy steps below!

The only supplies you will need are: painter's tape, scissors, paint, a flower pot, (optional hole-puncher) and a wooden skewer! And of course the perfect flower or plant of your choice to finish it all off!

We had to share one more shot of our entire fabulous group of attendees! Such concentration, right?

One more big huge THANK YOU to Anthropologie for letting us host this Mother's Day Event!

From the Field: Mother's Day DIY event with Anthropologie

Ampersand Design Studio

Two weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hosting a Mother's Day DIY event with Anthropologie! We put together a really fun painted flower pot DIY that could be the perfect Mother's Day gift or just a colorful addition to your windowsill! The event was filled with more laughter and creativity than we could've imagined! We really wish you ALL could've been there, but just in case you missed it, these photos by the talented Eric Linebarger perfectly capture the festivities! Stay tuned for a follow-up post where we will include the full DIY for you to do at home!

The evening was filled with sweet treats, cocktails and the most fun gals in the city!

We had flower pots, paints, brushes and the fixings for a flower pick with a sweet sentiment! And never fear, we kept everyone's darling outfits free of paint with some canvas aprons!

We really can't get over how creative all of our guests were! Check out this darling mini-dot flower pot?!

Morgan was delivering succulent plants while Carrie was hard at work hand-lettering each guest's apron!

Biggest thanks to Emily & Jordan for helping us make this event happen!! Jordan, thank you for all of the paint-testing, flower-pot-reseraching, plant finding, picking up, setting up and cleaning up! Without your creativity, and fabulous DIY sensibilities, we never could've made this happen! Emily, thank you for tying up all of our loose ends! We are so lucky to get to work with you ladies!

We had so much fun with you all, let's do it again sometime, shall we?!

And biggest thanks also to Molly & Tiffany at the Leawood, Kansas Anthropologie store!! Thanks for making it so fun to plan this event together and for all of the sweet treats! We hope we get to partner with you again soon! PS - check out Carrie and Tiffany's cute baby bumps!!!
