Pottery Barn Fall decorating class

This past Sunday I finally got to attend a free Decorating Class hosted by my local Pottery Barn store. This class was all about the Fall. I've been trying to get to one of these classes, for ohhh the past year? Have you ever been? It's pretty cool. The class is only about 45 minutes long and conducted while the store was closed to the public. They also give you time to shop after the class, again all while the store is closed. A very nice touch.
This year I loved how PB is bringing the outdoor elements indoors, yeah they did this last year, but this year it's even more so. The store was filled with tons of leaves, acorns, pumpkins and all kinds of branches. I came away with lots of ideas and oh yeah, a few new candle holders. The store actually wasn't completely set-up with all their Fall items. The instructor mentioned by this weekend they should be decorated completely. Exciting.

I thought I would share pics of the class and some of the stuff that got me excited!
Love the arrays of lanterns, LED pumpkins and especially the Raven perched on top. Also the words "Autumn Glow" is a great wording idea for the Fall.
This simple placesetting that was really was gorgeous in real life.I loved all the layers and the colors were so "me".
My favorite - white pumpkins. I love how simple this display is but still had me making a beeline right over to get a closer look.
This birdcage was huge, but so stylish done. The inside was filled with candles, candle holders, wrought iron birds and faux vines with leaves. Gorgeous, but I have no idea where one would house it?
The "goods" for the decorating class
Our instructor working on a project.

oh you also get a 10% discount that can be used that day. So I got 2 of these simple hurricane candle holders. I have visions of filling them with acorns and orange candles.
I highly recommend checking out the Pottery Barn website for upcoming classes near you. Or you can subscribed to their newsletter and they will let you know whats coming up next!
Im linking this up to Nifty Tuesdays, It's so very Cheri and Make it yours day!
