Can you believe it's mid-July already?? Summer's totally going by way too fast, but we'll make the best of it, won't we? By making our house look GOOD.
Pottery Barn is hosting a "fall open house" at their stores on Saturday morn, from 9-11am, to give you a peek at their new fall collection. If you're into that sort of English countryside manor decor, the event should be oodles of fun. And if you're not, well, there are "light refreshments" for you while you browse. But the fun doesn't stop there. You'll learn how to create tablescapes, host a wine tasting and pairing party and learn other party planning/hosting essentials. Hey, we're always down if we can go to an event and gain marketable skills! [Racked Inbox]
