Turns out that one of my favorite home and clothing brands – Anthropologie – offers a series of cool and therapeutic events (like floral arrangement🌿, jewelry making, and more!) in some of their stores across the U.S! 🙌🏼🎉 I visited my neighborly Palo Alto, California store last week to try out their floral arrangement class, and it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable moments of my week! ❤️ (I highly recommend it for any anthro lovers)
Events costs anywhere from $10 to $30, so you need to RSVP before each event. Each class lasts about 2 hours (from 5pm to 7pm, so you can totally go after work or school!), and the friendly store team is ready to satisfy your appetite with 🍾wine, fruits, chocolates, salumi and cheese!
The class happens inside the store – no need to worry about parking! 🚙 Anthropologie invites a local business owner or rep to facilitate the class – it’s also a wonderful opportunity for local businesses to get some word-of-mouth-marketing points.
Here’s my attempt at my first floral arrangement 🌿🌺 I may have been a little too enthusiastic – my base looked really packed compared to others 😓
It’s hard to go wrong when you’re dealing with such beautiful flowers 💐 though – everyone’s arrangement looked very different with their own flair and personality, but they were all absolutely gorgeous!! I would have paid for some of them 😃
All in all, it was a relaxing, fun after-work activity and I got to bring this beautiful arrangement back home, just in time for dinner. 🙌🏼
Disclosure: I wasn’t asked by Anthropologie (or rewarded in any monetary way) to write this post. I just love them! ❤️
Be your own kind of beautiful,
