land of nod trunk show

Last week we had the amazing opportunity of co-hosting a nationwide trunk show for Land of Nod with our friend and Interior Designer, Kirsten of 6th Street Design School! Eight parties in eight other cities took place the very same evening, and we loved being able to participate and create our own party at The Awful Waffle. Land of Nod has treated us so well this last year and we were beyond grateful to work them in person this time!

Would you care to see some of our photographer Lindsey Orton’s pictures of the night? Don’t be too sad if you missed it, the Land of Nod is offering Small Fry readers 15% off using “SFBLOG” from today until November 27th!

While everyone noshed on waffles, frites, pizzas, and beverages we prepared an awesome raffle of some of our favorite Land of Nod items. Nothing is better than surprising friends with fun gifts! ☟

We got a head start on our Christmas shopping, and couldn’t pass up a spin in the old photobooth. Our photographer Lindsey Orton was as usual, a great sport for us! Also true to form, we found ourselves eating non-stop the whole evening. Whether it was waffles, or the most killer key lime sugar cookies from Cookie Haven, we were in heaven.
