Anthropologie & Holly Becker of Decor8

Boston was one lucky city this weekend as it was the first stop on Holly Becker's book signing tour! If you do not know Holly she is the writer behind the uber popular Decor8 blog and also the author of the new book Decorate. As you might remember I wrote about the book a few months ago and absolutely loved it!

The morning started at Anthropologie downtown with Holly putting on a Mood Board Demonstration. She was so personal and funny during her presentation and talked about how every room should have that one piece which is "wrong" or doesn't quite fit in. I could not agree more, it's usually the one piece guests are drawn to in the space!

Next Holly made her way downstairs and signed books for 2 hours! I was so excited for her as the line wrapped around the store. I of course went shopping and picked up this little & gem for a certain engagement photo shoot which will take place this week! Cute prop right?

Me and Holly catching up after her signing!

As you might know if there is an opportunity for me to gather local creatives together I will plan a party and this was no exception! About 23 New England designers, artists, photographers, fabric designers and bloggers gathered to network and honor Holly at a lunch! We had such a fantastic afternoon swapping stories and getting to know each other. As you can see we had one long, loud table!

I was so excited to catch up with friends Stephanie, Lindsay, Yvonne, Kate and Katy! Thanks ladies for coming out it was a great day!

So glad I was able to make it to Anthropologie + lunch to meet Holly (who is so sweet IRL!) and all the other creative women at the table! I left there quite energized and happy to have made new connections and to have seen some of my favorite Boston bloggers ; ) Thanks, once again, for getting us all together,Julieann!
