Ben and I recently attended an engagement party at Pottery Barn. Even before I was engaged, I knew that I wanted to register at this store. I love everything they have to offer!
When we arrived, we were greeted by sweet designers, who offered to get us a "mockarita" and showed us to this setup featuring several yummy appetizers. Ben kept asking if we could register for the guacamole. He swore it was one of the best recipes he has ever had.
Once we settled in, we started by filling out our registry paperwork. Even though we are getting married next April, the designers assured us that many of Pottery Barn products do not get discontinued. I spotted this Newlywed Cookbook right away. With the help of Pinterest, I have had a new interest in learning to cook and bake, so this was a must-have on our registry.
The designers also provided decorating tutorials, outlining ways to use the signature and seasonal pieces to create various tablescapes.
We ended up registering for many items, but decided to hold off on bedding, dining sets and bath pieces until the wedding gets closer. I figure we will have a better idea of what we want by then. Ben became a master operator of the registry gun (as shown below).
To wrap up, the Pottery Barn team presented us with this cute favor, which was filled with white chocolate almond popcorn from a local shop. It was the perfect treat to wrap up our engagement party visit.
Any thoughts on the best registry program out there? Do you have a favorite or one store you recommend? I would love to hear your suggestions.
