Decor Inspiration: Beach Camping

Post image for Decor Inspiration: Beach Camping

The beach setup at last week’s FP Me camping trip was unreal. Our West Coast display team showed up manned and ready to transform our piece of paradise into a Free People dreamland. The van was loaded with everything from fresh flowers and drift wood to hand-dyed pillows and seashells. We had a vision, and under the hot beating sun, it was quickly crafted into reality.

We first built the driftwood teepee by stitching it together with crochet rounds and neon string. We wanted it to be a place where guests could lay & let their minds escape, so it was lined with a cloud of blankets and handmade pillows to get lost in. Surrounding the teepee was signage made of driftwood, seashell mandalas in the sand, and of course, a hand-painted surf board!

Guests dined at a long seated table made of rough planks hand-painted by our West Coast display team.  Right on site, they drilled it together atop a blanket and pillows for guests to dine. Eucalyptus, Queen Anne’s Lace, and lush yellow flowers filled mason jars lining the table’s center. Scattered between, laid bits of sea glass to reflect that glowing yellow sun.

Lastly, Free People had to put its final stamp on the setup. We claimed our reserved tiki hut with a handmade “Free People” banner. It was died in pink, stitched with sequins, and elegantly painted. The space was now ours. A land where all could laugh, make friends, and dream a dream together.
