IKEA Grand Pre-Opening Party...

I love IKEA, yes and I am not ashamed to admit it...I feel at home strolling through the many model rooms, eating the 75cent hot dogs (the only time in my life I EVER eat hot dogs) and imagining how all the lovely goodies would look in my own abode...so when I was invited to the IKEA grand pre-opening party here in Ottawa last night, you can imagine that for this eager IKEA fan, that was nothing short of bliss...first of all, Ottawa has been home to an itty-bitty IKEA store for years now, so this new mammoth space (the biggest one in Canada to date) is quite the exciting change, especially for interior decor lovers such as myself! Second, touring the new space, eating itty-bitty versions of the hot dogs (bliss) and mingling with some old and new friends, honestly I can't think of a better way to spend a rainy Monday evening (or any evening for that matter!) Needless to say, the evening was a success, here are some pictures from the night...enjoy...
PS: if you are interested in reading more about the new store and some of IKEA's 'beautifying initiatives' in the city, check out this great article by Harvey Chartrand from Ottawa Life Magazine, here...

...and that was my night at the new IKEA store...it was nice to see it before the crowds hit this Wednesday when the store opens to the public (oh and they will)...until next time, Happy Tuesday everyone...
Love K
