folks are getting hitched

we've been happily busting around this crazy city and state for the past few months helping folks get married. it's been quite the ride so far in our oversized cargo vans...just imagine juliet at 4'11 and myself not much bigger at a whopping 5'1 whipping an enormous, windowless van around filled with flowers.
last weekend we tackled a very big and super fun wedding for a truly delightful couple. with 450 guests we designed a chuppah, 16 chair flowers, 39 tablescapes, 14 bouquets, 11 boutonnieres, 250 favors, seating cards, table numbers and pretty much any other decor elements you could dream of. whoo i am tired from just writing it.
the wedding design was a smashing hit and a huge accomplishment for p&p. we had a really talented team of girls with us to pull it all off. our dear friend missy of missy photography joined us for the day and took some lovely photos. enjoy!
the bridal bouquet was designed with soft palette of scabiosa, dahlia, and veronica
half of the tables were adorned with a lantern and five vintage glass vases nestled on top of a bed of moss. juliette roses, salt roses, veronica, and scabiosa were paired with delicate green vines and unripened blackberry.
the other half of the tables were adorned with a low, lush arrangement of dahlias, thistle, juliette garden roses, scabiosa, vernoica, and artichokes. there were even some donut peaches nestled into the arrangements!
guests picked up a mini potted herb with their seating assignments attached to a garden stick
fresh lavender lined the aisle
the chuppah was adorned with delicate greens, seeded eucalyptus, amaranthus, and veronica

1000 cranes

this past weekend was a big one for p&p, in fact the biggest we've had so far. among the many fun things on our schedule was a festive wedding at the city winery. we hung 1000 cranes that were handmade by the bride and her family. it was really a sight to see!

it's every girls dream to get married with all hardware acquisitions in a metal shop in brooklyn, right? well, it was ours!
we teamed up with domestic construction, lovely bride, stuart & welch catering, missy photography, and cleanwash letterpress to design a hardware store inspired wedding. it was so much fun and in our opinion turned out pretty rad!

furniture dreams

yes, it is true p&p will soon have a new home and we are beyond excited for the big move!
one of the best parts about moving into a new space is that you can spend countless hours scouring markets and online retailers for cool pieces of furniture and shamelessly dream about owning all of them. here are some of my dreams by nightwood.
happy weekend!

Why Design Now?

I recently visited the Cooper Hewitt to see the Why Design Now Exhibition. It was fabulous! Among the highlights, for me, were the Adspecs. These glasses were developed to be a low cost eye wear option used mostly in the developing world. The glasses utilize simple technology that allows the user to "fill" their own prescription by injecting the lens with liquid. Read more about them here http://exhibitions.cooperhewitt.org/Why-Design-Now/project/adspecs and see the exhibit at the Cooper Hewitt now through January.
