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:
Paint, tacks and brushes were aplenty at each of the DIY tables.
Guests made fun studded lampshades at one of the three craft stations.
Buenos Angie’s supplied the best-ever bite-sized Argentinan cookies.
Terrazas wines provided drinks throughout the night.

Dozens of readers enjoyed wine, treats and crafts.
Needless to say, the final projects were well with the DIY mess.
