While visiting Reno a couple of weekends ago, Laura, of Olive and Love, took me to one of her favorite vintage shops, The Nest Reno, for their annual Terrarium Class (which was more of a party)–ummm, vintage clothes, furniture, decor, and DIY miniature greenhouses? This is my kind of Valentine’s Day!
The class took place inside this adorable urban vintage boutique (The Nest), with terrarium-making goods provided by Sierra Water Gardens.
As you can see, the store was jam-packed for this event!
Eclectic glass containers were provided by The Nest, and we had all sorts of fun materials to build our terrariums with. Including wine. And dessert. Essential to terrarium-building.
The air plants provided by Sierra Water Gardens were to die for!
I was so obsessed with the air plants that that was all I used in my terrarium.
Mr. OliveandLove made a pretty darn great terrarium. Raar! Lol.
But I think Mrs. OliveandLove takes the grand prize for her adorable tiny garden.
Her scrabble tiles read: Here. How many points is that?!
When we finished our little projects, we finally got to wander and mingle in the store and see all the amazing stuff that Tessa, owner of The Nest, has curated. Eye candy everywhere you look in this place!
Gorgeous vintage ties.
It’s bananas how much I love these old bottles.
Floral couch love.
There were so many adorable pieces of furniture (I promise you I walked out with several–paid for, I swear-you’ll see more about that in a later post).
Laura does some hat modeling on the side. She doesn’t like to brag about it.
We had too much fun. And maybe a lot of wine.
I may have bought a few extra air plants while I was at it.
We really had a fabulous time, and I just love this store. If you are ever in Reno, drop in and say hi!
In the meantime, be sure to follow along with The Nest Reno on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, to see what’s new at the store.
Also–take a look at Sierra Water Gardens and follow along with their green-thumbed adventures on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
Thanks to all of you wonderful ladies for such a fun time! I heart Reno!
