Design*Sponge at Home Book on Display

The crowd with all of the twinkle lights

I had a lovely ladies night out on Friday at Terrain at Styers. It was the book signing party for the new Design*Sponge at Home book by Grace Bonney. The party was pretty short, but I did manage to get my book signed and a picture.

Terrain at Styers (owned by the parent company of Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie) is always full of LOTS of eye candy in the form of plants, pots and old wood. The party was in one of the old barns on site. The classic twinkle lights hung on the ceiling made the space feel really initiate (although a little dark for shooting photos). They served a delicious punch (I should have asked for the recipe) in jelly jars w/ little ribbon stirrers. They also had a raffle for a beautiful table spread (items were picked out by Grace and Amy from Terrain). I didn’t win, but it was still pretty to look at. All in all a good time, especially considering I heard Grace speak in the same space over a year ago when she was finishing up putting the book together. Grace is lovely and gracious, just as one would expect!

Table display that was auctioned off. I really love the apple pot, not that I would ever actually use it.
