I confess that I’m one of those people who runs out to a new store to check it out or buys the latest craft product after seeing it on their favorite blog. I guess you can say I’m highly influenced by some of my favorite bloggers, but I’ve come to find that I’m never disappointed. Last month I saw a few bloggers talk about World Market and since we don’t have one in town I immediately became interested in checking out one of their stores. So when we went to SoCal on vacation I Google mapped the nearest World Market. My poor husband, I don’t give him nearly enough credit for putting up with my requests. Luckily there was one on the way home and boy was it as amazing as I thought it would be.
So when I had the opportunity to decorate a table for a girls night inspired by their new Kingdom Animalia collection, I was thrilled! It turns out there’s a World Market 45 minutes from me..this could be dangerous for my wallet. Are you ready to see some of the amazing things I found?
For the table decor I bought items that I can use as Fall decor as well. I bought this fun cubby not knowing exactly what I was going to do with it, but I HAD to have it. Aren’t the mini cupcakes adorable in there? I also picked up a globe, set of napkins, vase, and chalkboard (that I didn’t use in my setup). The tablecover is something I used for my son’s safari birthday party, which I’ll share with you next week. ;)
Random fact, the serving platter is actually from Africa. My sister-in-law studied abroad during her junior year and brought this back for my in-laws. I borrow it quite often because I love the fun design and it’s great for parties.
