Land of Nod Event Recap

Last Thursday night I had the honor of co-hosting a Land of Nod event to celebrate their Toy Shop launch  in Los Altos! Cristin, the talented designer and blogger I interned for while finishing my last 2 years of college, co-hosted with me, and along with The Makery Los Altos and Land of Nod, we had the best night! Over 100 guests showed up and we were able to chat, craft and sip some bubbly {and my oh my, the drinks we were served were delicious!} Luckily we captured some of the fun and I'm here today to share it with you.


Cristin and I created a fun holiday vignette using lots of AMAZING Land of Nod products. If you're unfamiliar with Land of Nod, it's Crate & Barrel's kid's store, specializing in furniture, decor, accessories, toys, and more for your kiddos. In our set up, we created a kids craft area with the play table, adorable stockings, a Christmas tree decked with the cutest pom pom garland and ornaments, and per Cristin's genius idea, we created a chandelier out of brightly hued ornaments. Everyone really loved it!





Land of Nod gave us these dollhouses to adorn and decorate. Cristin made the inside of hers just the cutest thing I've ever seen! She even created valences with left over fabric samples. I did decorate the inside of mine, but the outside was my favorite part with the flowers in the window boxes, wreaths and garland. 




All the guests got to take home the 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments! SO FUN!

The Makery hosted our event and if you haven't heard of their shop and live in the Bay Area, get your bootie down there ASAP! It's a crafters dream :) Full of every craft essential you could imagine, the Makery hosts amazing parties, workshops and has unique supplies and decor for custom parties. Everyone who came to our event had a ball making little adornments for their Elf on the Shelf characters. Each guest left with one, which I thought was the cutest thing ever!

That's a wrap! There were 7-8 Land of Nod parties across the whole United States last Thursday, so I feel so thankful to have been able to be apart of the one in the Bay Area!
