This Friday you are invited to join me and some of my friends for a special evening in Amsterdam. We will gather together at De Kroon on Rembrandtplein in the heart of Amsterdam at 20:00 (8 PM) and I imagine we’ll linger for a few hours so please join us!
I’ll be there with fellow bloggers Danielle, Emma, Sia, Nina, Pia, Yvonne, and maybe Frida if she can make it, and of course you if you’d like to attend. We are expecting between 20-30 to join us, so if you can make it please RSVP by posting below the number in your party (or email me) so that you will have a seat. You’re welcome to bring a friend and/or partner (men are more than welcome), but you may want to leave the little ones at home since we plan to order cocktails and stay out late. You are welcome to join us for a drink or you can order dinner or dessert, whatever you’d like. It’s perfectly fine if you decide to only order a drink though. Please note: Each guest will be responsible for the cost of their food and/or beverages.
For more information about De Kroon, please click here. Little cards will be on our tables that say “decor8 meet & greet” so you will know who we are. You can also ask the hostess to direct you to our section.
This is the first official design blogger/blog reader meet and greet held in Europe (that I’m aware of anyway) and I hope that this will encourage other bloggers to pull together and form their own special night out as I think it’s really important to take the online world offline at times and actually meet one another face to face. The goal is to connect with others who appreciate art and design and to put a face behind some of the favorite blogs that we read, in addition to connecting readers with other readers. We had a small, very informal meet up in Stockholm last Fall (photos here) and it really encouraged me to set up something a little larger so I decided Amsterdam would be a good place.
Again, if you plan to join us this Friday, September 5th at 20:00, please either contact me via email (decor8blog AT yahoo.com) or comment below with the exact number in your party. Oh, and please try to make it on time since we cannot guarantee your seat will be held if you are very late. But of course, we’ll do our best! :)
See you on Friday!
UPDATE: A few editors from 101 Woonidee?n magazine have confirmed that they will attend as well and will be bringing along some copies of their wonderful magazine. I’m so happy they will join us. :)
