A little Anthro love

22 Mar

This is nothing new.  Anthropologie has the most amazing window displays.  I am constantly in awe of their incredibly creative use of materials and you’ll find me standing in front of their windows for at least ten minutes if I happen upon one.  Obsession.  Not to mention, their store is pretty incredible too with its eclectic, hand-made, cultured, & earth inspired goods.

Thought you would like to see some of my favorite window displays for a little Tuesday love.

Ribbon decor is popping up everywhere!  Even wedding design!  Love.

Um.  Can I just say wow?  This is gorgeous!!!  Upon further research I found they used white cotton material & dip dyed it into buckets of all different colors, which they then sewed into ruffle strands and hung.  Now, this might seem out there…but how about that for a ceremony backdrop – or a canopy/tent/chuppah in your wedding colors?  Yummy.

Gotta love the creative use of books.  In fact, that’s a future post I must do.  Books used in weddings.  It’s been done!

Love love this colorful use of balloons.  So simple yet so vibrant.  How about doing a wall of balloons like this for your wedding- with names & table numbers written on them for escort cards?  Sounds good.

Who knew those paper chains we made as kids in elementary school could be so beautiful!

Or Marshmallows for that matter.

An ornament tree!  Oh mylanta. That is incredibly beautiful & creative!

Now…these sorts of inspirations are what cause major overwhelming excitement for me and drive me to proclaim “why aren’t there more hours in the day!!?”  My poor husband and all he deals with.  This ornament tree is too good to pass up.  Can’t wait for Christmas time and my own attempt at this creation.

P.S. each and every Anthropologie store has it’s own team of designers, artists, graphic designers, builders, & dreamers to come up with and create these incredible displays.  I wish I could do this job!!!  Someday?  Yes please!

    Love this post and love anthro!! I actually thought about attempting that dip dyed ruffled fabric thing but abandoned it due to time constraints. Thought it would be so cute for a photobooth backdrop or (like you said) ceremony backdrop. 🙂

      That would be awesome for a photobooth backdrop! Don’t you just wish someone would ask us to help them style their wedding? And then we’d have a really good excuse to attempt dip dyed ruffled fabric things? 🙂

    Wedding stylist would be the ultimate job! Let’s do that! 🙂
