Getting Ready for the Holidays at Anthropologie


Anyone who is reading this blog should know about and/or be a fan of Anthropologie window displays. We l-o-v-e the way that our New Orleans Anthropologie decorates their windows with such creativity and panache. Many of the items are found or local (including sticks and twigs foraged after Hurricane Issac and local aviation maps). That personal touch does so much for the shopper, don’t you think? Stores across the country (plus their home office team in Philadelphia) have creative teams that plan year round on window displays and merchandising plans throughout the store. Each display is more beautiful than the next.

You might be asking how I came to know all of this information. Well, the answer is because (for just a few hours) I was a part of creating an Anthropologie display!

I sat with Anthropologie employees and other volunteers, creating the geometric shapes you see in the picture above. Everyone was so nice and excited to be there! Perhaps after the next workshop there will be enough for all 500 feet of garland that the creative ladies plan to string from the staircase.

I was sent home with some templates so that I can make this garland at home or in the studio, we’ll let you know if this garland shows up again!

If you can, head over to Anthropologie on November 1, 2012 at 4:00 PM so you can get your hands dirty with an awesome project! Here is the link to RSVP.
