Spring

Coral Charm Peony

Coral Charm PeonyWe’ve been busy bees getting prepared for the upcoming wedding season that is almost upon us. Our latest trip to the flower market was a great reminder of how many gems Spring time creates. From hellebores to ranunculus, clematis and peonies it’s all beautiful. We’ll be sharing more and more as things start to get busy in the studio. Please stay tuned!

 

Gold Skate Crew

Patina Roller JamOur friends from Patina Rentals threw the party of the year on Thursday at The 1896 that we will not soon forget and some of us will never forget. I’m talking real tattoos to always remember the night by. The Color Condition debuted their collaboration project with Patina at the party and it was out of this world!

Tattly

I figured it was a terrible idea to get my first tattoo at a roller skating party, so I opted for the temporary tattoo by Tattly. Plus, I got my gold skates to always remember the night by.Patina Roller Jam

Patina Roller JamThere is truly nobody better in NYC to get the party started then Kenan of Les Loups. He rocked it out all night and then sent us all home with an old school mix tape. Gold skate crew 4-life! {top picture stolen from our friends @thesistersofcedarlakes}

purple floral centerpiece

They’re calling color of the year Radiant Orchid, which is a purple color that I usually avoid at all cost. Of course there are some exceptions and the flowers from this week were one of them.

This purple scabiosa resembles more of a watercolor painting than a real life flower. The color variation on each petal was incredible.

ranunculus

Japan is at it again growing the most beautiful varieties of ranunculus. The one shown above looked like delicate paper. purple parrot tulip

I wish parrot tulips were available year round because they last a long time and just get better with age. This deep purple hue is pretty yummy as well!
spireaMore from Japan today is spirea.  Soon enough we’ll be seeing this and it will be local, which makes me very happy. I would use spirea in ever arrangement if I could.

Crispy Kale Salad

Kale Chip Recipe

A crispy kale salad is an incredibly easy, delicious and healthy meal to make for yourself. Michael Steifman of Michael Stuart NY shows us how to prepare the kale and is giving us tips on what to pair with your kale.

Kale Chip Recipe

Michael chose Russian kale, but you could use any leafy type of kale for your salad. To begin he cut it into thin strips and placed it in a big bowl. Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper over the kale and mix it together so each leaf is coated.

Kale Chip RecipeHe then placed the kale on a baking pan lined with parchment paper, making sure to spread the kale out and never having too much of it overlapping. Bake on 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until the kale is dried and crispy. Once it cools down squeeze fresh lemon juice on it and add shaved watermelon radish for a simply delicious salad.
