So last week I got an email from Public Relations at House Beautiful saying that they read my blog (gasping...) and wanted to let me know about an event they have coming up next week. Yes. And it involved pink. Yes.
I got the details and although I'm actually out of town this weekend, I wanted to share it with any local readers who might wan to participate!
Here are the details:
On Saturday, Feb 26 through Monday, Feb 28, House Beautiful will hide more than 30 pink chairs ranging from $10 to $3,700 in multiple locations around the city – everywhere from tourist spots like the Navy Pier to trendy neighborhoods like Ravenswood. By following House Beautiful on Twitter (@House_Beautiful) people will receive clues to the chair locations and the first person to find the chair, gets it for FREE.
House Beautiful secured gorgeous pink chairs from a variety of companies including Crate & Barrel, The Container Store, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Arhaus, Pottery Barn, and more.
The chairs will be placed one at a time over a period of the three days. Whether it's someone who reads their tweets or just a stranger passing by, these beautiful freebies are sure to capture some interest and generate a lot of excitement.
In addition to the pink chairs, House Beautiful will also be painting the city pink in these ways:
* Mon, Feb 21 – Sat, Feb 26: Pink window displays in Crate & Barrel and The Container Store
* Sat, Feb 26 – Mon, Feb 28: Pink chair drops around town (as mentioned above)
* Sun, Feb 27: Ravenswood Pink Art Walk and reception (12pm to 5pm – pink chair drops will happen in the neighborhood):
o House Beautiful is partnering with the Ravenswood Art Center to create the first Ravenswood Pink Walk on Sunday, Feb 27 - it's going to be epic. More than 100 local artists are expected to create pink art to benefit the Ravenswood Elementary School art dept.
