Behind-the-Scenes: DIY Home Decor Night With The Nest

We’ve been feeling especially crafty lately–so the editors of The Nest hosted our first-ever DIY decor event last night! About a hundred of you came to our downtown New York office for the event. The crafts? DIY monogrammed coasters, studded lampshades and painted centerpieces from design blogger Hannah Kate Flora. While crafting we sipped a crisp white wine from Terrazas (loved!) and enjoyed some amazing sweets from Lomaxine, Buenos Angie’s, Roni-Sue’s and Butter & Scotch (including some strawberry cupcakes that were out of this world!). DIY decor + wine + dessert + great friends — what could be better? Check out pics from our event:
