It's time to start showing off what we've been up to this fall - We got your weddings, we got your parties, we got your bat mitzva's, your bar mitzvas - BOTH KIND OF MITZVAS!!
We've been working with illustrator extraordinaire Asheley Wilson on some customized do-dads like that new header up there and the menus/name tags for a small wedding at The Bowery Hotel two weeks ago. Ah... The Bowery Hote - OH MY GOD ANN COULTER ON THE COVER OF THE STYLE SECTION JUST SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME. Why is this woman's career not over yet??
But aren't they adorbs? Little hand water-colored pears and shiz. The boxes were filled with pumpkin moonpies from One Girl Cookie. They arrived at the studio a few days before hand and it took every effort in my being not to raid them at 3 o'clock, as you know my hour of weakness.
Asian pears. I kindly requested the staff save them for me when I picked everything up the next day. I have eaten 45 of 100 so far. There's a dirth of recipes on the internet for these suckers. I actually pawned some off to a little girl next door by telling her they tasted like "butter."
Dahlias, a shitty season all around for them (the heat, the dryspells) but I still order 10 bunches every week and then watch 3/4 of them die in the studio. I just started ordering some from an amazing supplier in CA thanks to Katherine at Botanica in CT for the tip on that. They only come in peachy pink though. It's a hard knock life..
Speaking of the hard life, we're taking the week off to rest the studio*. 14 weddings in the last 4 weeks it we all really need it. Plus I have to work on my Halloween costume..
S-s-s-alt & Peppa's hERE!
*if i can manage to figure out how to prep blog posts in advance i will so check back in. even though it's not really the same, is it? i mean when you know someone has cued it up ... like when i first realized that songs on the radio were pre-recorded. that whitney houston wasn't actually there live at WHUD singing "All at Once" at 9pm while I tried to fall asleep. Took me a while to get over that one.
