The ongoing battle in the P&P office is Bacon vs. Tofu. As I stood at the stove this beautiful (albeit freezing) Sunday morning, making my beloved bacon I glanced up an saw mr. bacon looking rather pleased with himself while Sierra's mascot, mr. tofu, looked rather horrified. Round one to bacon... better luck next time tofu.

In New York City terms, succulents are a plant that can survive in some of the most sunlight deprived apartments! Although, this is a plus for me and my Williamsburg loft that receives sunlight for approximately 2 hours on only the best summer days, I also happen to LOVE succulents. I also adore herbs such as lavender, rosemary, mint, and basil but they have no chance where I dwell.
Getting married? Succulents make for an extraordinary element in bouquets, boutonnieres, and tablescapes too!

One thing I can and would love to share with everyone is an adorable arrangement Juliet put together for my boyfriend's sister-in-law's birthday this week. We found this vintage tin in upstate NY on one of our many antiquing trips. This is one of my personal favorites. When we saw these gorgeous ranunculus, hellebores, and chocolate cosmos in the market
we couldn't pass them by!

We chose tetra anenome, ranunculus, peonies, thistle, curly willow, and citrus to create these arrangements. The flowers were spilling out of the vases as if it were a forest floor.
Stuart & Welch catering is responsible for the absolutely delicious cuisine that was served. Shrimp and grits, grilled lobster, and caviar were just a few of the items served to their guests.
What a fantastic way to start the new year!

This deeply fabulous wedding dress deserves a wedding designed around it....
Just add bridesmaids in chic, well tailored jodpurs and lots of very good scotch.
