Aside from just about everything they carry, one of the best things about West Elm is how they partner with interesting local talent for fun in-store events. And in the next few weeks, just in time for burgeoning thoughts of holiday gift giving, they’re hosting two fun-sounding events that should not be missed.
On November 6 from 5 to 7 p.m., Trophy Cupcake queen Jennifer Shea will be setting up her sweet treats, complimentary bubbly and tons of party inspiration courtesy of her new book Trophy Cupcakes & Parties!. She’ll be bringing her creative posse, which includes Hank & Hunt blogger Jenny Batt, Scout’s Jenn Elliott Blake, artist and photographer Julia Manchik and photographer Rina Jordan. Snack, sip, soak in all the creativity and enjoy mini-DIY sessions on how to throw the perfect party. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org so they know to expect you.
And on November 9, blogger Melissa Michaels of The Inspired Room is hosting an Etsy pop-up shop with 12 Seattle-based crafters and makers and featuring their wares. This mini craft show takes place from 1 to 6 p.m., with the sellers set up around the store selling their wares. Click on over here for a complete list, but we’re most excited to sniff and sample the vegan body care products from Herbivore Botanicals, whose packaging is most excellent.
