We are so excited to give you more details on the Saturday Night Pintacular, taking place at West Elm’s central London store!
With the West Elm store open just for us, the evening will be a fantastic way to unwind after Blogtacular, with food, drinks and lots of making! Light snacks around a fiesta theme will be provided by West Elm, with Fentiman’s providing non-alcoholic drinks and wine sponsored by Blogtacular. West Elm is also providing an extra special surprise for Blogtacular attendees – more details on that next week!
Not only we will be able to chat the evening away, but our other Pintacular sponsor, Pinterest, has gathered some of our favourite crafters to provide awesome things to make and do on the night.
