a couple of weeks ago jen huang and i found our way (barely) to the melangerie trunk show at the brooklyn collective. i say barely because it did involve me picking jen up off the side of the street not long after i found myself lost on the same dark corner. it was well worth the adventure once we made it! melangerie sold some beautiful goods and there was a photo booth!
with thanksgiving tomorrow all we can think about is food! turkey, roasted veggies, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and more stuffing! add a bit of vino, family, friends and it really is a perfect day in the making!
to kick it off enjoy some of our handpicked favorite dishes from stuart & welch catering. their menus are always seasonal and local making their dishes unbelievably fresh and yummy.
butternut squash shooter with cardamom & lemongrass
jumbo lump crab cakes with apple fennel relish & sauce gribiche
We love these vintage inspired cameo & intaglio rings from Extesia. Each is handmade using traditional tools and techniques. The intaglios in a small Bavarian Village and the Cameos in an Italian seaside town (rumored to have invented the art of cameo making).
They could make for a pretty snazzy engagement ring... just sayin.
it feels a bit like christmas morning here today. the excitement has been stirring for awhile in anticipation for rue's issue #2 and it's here! it is jammed packed with goodies you won't want to miss and make sure to check out our collaboration with desiree spinner & christian oth photography on pages 68-71.
thanksgiving is our absolute favorite holiday over here at p&p, so when grace from design sponge asked us to design a DIY centerpiece for her readers we were thrilled! we teamed up with whitney from oh darling photography and had a blast doing it! this shot is unbelievable...she makes us look so good! for the entire post go here. big thanks, whitney!!
after having the chance to work on a wedding with carl zoch photography we instantly fell in love with his work. we're particularly fond of his photos from his travels, which is lucky for us because he's dedicated an entire site to places he's visited!
This past August we had a blast working on this very sweet wedding with planner Lisa Green at the Onteora Mountain House. The lovely Jenny Ebert sent over her gorgeous photos of the big day and we thought we'd share a few with all of you!
The rectangular tables each had a large birch vase overflowing with bright summer flowers and a few smaller budvases running the length of them; while the round tables got a variety of vintage bottles displayed on a birch round.
Each table number was placed in a vintage flower frog.
good morning ladies and gents! make sure to pick up the december issue of brides magazine for lots of fun ideas, including our lily of the valley favors in apothecary jars. bryn of paperfinger designed the custom labels for each bottle and they were the perfect finishing touch.
we recently designed a wedding at the foundry, which is one of our absolute favorite venues in NYC. i just love the clear top tent next to the 59th street bridge, the industrial interior of the venue, and all of the charming characteristics that this historical building has to offer. here is a snippet of the vineyard inspired tablescapes we designed for this lovely affair. can't wait to share the rest!
Last weekend p&p took a much needed break and both of us headed for the country! Sierra went to a wonderful place in Pennsylvania and I headed to my mom's house in Maryland. One of the best parts of our little town there is the Saturday morning farmers market. When I saw these watermelon radishes there I couldn't resist picking up a few and bringing them back to the studio for Sierra to see! We are now obsessed with them and want to put them in everything... from dinner to the centerpiece!
we're a boutique floral and event design company in new york city. we (juliet & sierra) met when we both moved to the big apple in 2007. one day we got to talking, and decided to combine our love for design, flowers, and parties. and so, poppies & posies was born!
every detail of our
fabulous fetes are meticulously designed and,
whenever possible, handcrafted.
our arrangements are inspired
by the organic movement and composition of the country gardens that we both spent sunny summer days in as children. we love what we do and hope you will too!
