Nate Berkus Show/Blogger Party Recap!

Becky and I were delighted to be invited to a special taping of the Nate Berkus Show for an audience of design bloggers yesterday in New York City!  We logged about 8 hours of driving for 7 short-lived hours of design fun in the city, but it was totally worth it!

Here we are, on Nate's set at the CBS Studios on West 57th Street:

Nate's shows are taped in advance, so we're not at liberty to tell you too much about the content, other than that special guests included Design Star winner Emily Henderson and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano.

The audience was a veritable who's who of design bloggers from around the country including (but not limited to!) Janell of Isabella and Max Rooms, Jenny of Little Green Notebook, Lindsay of Everything LEB, Emily of Emily A. Clark, Cristin of Simplified Bee, Kristin of 6th Street Design School and of course Camila of High-Heeled Foot in the Door.

The party continued downtown at a champagne and desert event sponsored by The Nest Magazine and Camila Pavone of High-Heeled Foot in the Door.

The editors at The Nest Magazine brilliantly set up a 'design challenge' for the blogger partiers: to design a bar cart with a (limited) offering of available resources including ribbon, books, paper umbrellas and the like.

Here's Becky hard at work on Living Livelier's bar car entry:

And here I am, looking a bit skeptical, but happy with drink in hand:

Some bar cart design competition:

Camila and a style editor from The Nest - many thanks for hosting us!

  1. How fun...and how smart of the show to invite bloggers who will all blog about the show.

  2. Too funny~ I didn't know you got a pic of us "your competiton";) Love that! It was great meeting you in the short cab ride! Hope to meet up again;)


  3. Thanks again for coming to The Nest and High-Heeled Foot in the Door event!! It was great meeting everyone.



  4. I hate that I didn't have an opportunity to chat with you! What fun ... but it was WAY too brief!!

  5. Deb-
    I didn't get to chat with you either what a bummer! You left me a comment on my blog about Silhouette decals, I used vintage pics of my Mom and Grandma, scanned and cut them with a vinyl cutter but you can use a cricket :) Let me know if that helps!

  6. I thought the show was pretty much a train wreck. Nate is very talented and being in the audience of that show I really didn't get a taste of his talent. If was fun to meet other mom bloggers and get fantastic pair of earrings from Christian Siriano's new site Send the Trend. People and jewelry, the two highlights of the day. Nate was a disappointment.

  7. Nate's show won't last. It sucks.

  8. Deb, It was so nice to meet on Tuesday! Its too funny that all these Boston Bloggers finally got together but in NYC- we will have to do it around here again soon :)

  9. Deb and Becky, How much fun to meet both of you!! It was a fun packed day! Janell

  10. Loved meeting you Deb! You were absolutely lovely and I am so glad to have gotten to speak with you. I am also so glad to have found your blog.

  11. the show SUCKS big time.He is kinda of cute, replaced Martha Stewart where I live and that is not good.
    Who wants to see the same minor celebs making the rounds.
    Perhaps if he were naked might be watchable
