I got there early, so folks were still arriving. There was a bar and crudites all over the store.
I was tempted to invest in these fab belt pillows or maybe even a monogrammed needlepoint as seen in the far right corner, but I decided it wasn't a good idea with my French Bulldog aka throw pillow tyrant at home.
Everything was set up pristine as usual but there were several muse candles burning and glorious tulips adorning the Druggist Jars. I have this set in black at home and they look great all lined up on my dining room table. The lovely lady in the yellow towards the back chatted with me for awhile. She works for the company in NY and filled me in about the Barbie Beach House Jonathan has designed in Malibu. More on that here.
The Dora Maar vase had a gazillion giant peacock feathers that looked gorgeous. If you look on the book table to the right, you can see the Man & Woman Utopia Decanters in the large size. These were up for raffle which I of course entered, fingers crossed!
More views of the Druggist Jars and some great new picture frames. The wall reads, "Stroking our pots is addictive...and there is no known cure".
The Jonathan Adler mantra: "We believe in Palm Beach style: Louis chairs, chinoiserie, Lily Pulitzer, The Breakers circa '72". Little did I know there was a surprise I had no idea about.......
JONATHAN ADLER! He was actually there! I was very excited! Of course, he is just as adorable as I thought he would be. I hung back and talked with the lady from his company and she brought me over to him to introduce us.
We are total BFF now! He complimented my coat and told me how great I looked, how he loved that I stood out in the crowd and told me I should just live in the store. We briefly chatted about his husband Simon and Simon's job at Barney's, my wedding, J.Crew, and the charity at hand, Project Angel Food. I was ecstatic to meet him and even happier to know that he is truly sweet and kind hearted.
