happy weekend!

ok last little post for the week is a very sweet city hall wedding featured on ruffled blog today! make sure to check out the full post because there are some really stunning photographs taken by trent bailey photography!
happy weekend!

big friday

typically we post one thing a day on our little, modest blog but today seems to be a very exciting day. so, here goes....
a few weeks or months back (i can't even tell time at this point) we were invited to attend a soiree thrown by you & me lifestylists (one of our absolutely favorite duos hands down). the concept was for each guest to teach the rest of the party one new trade to kick off 2011. we of course wanted to share a floral skill, so we taught everyone how to make a dapper boutonniere/corsage to spruce up any outfit. the best part, all of this was capture by trent bailey photography and included in the 3rd issue of rue magazine! check it out folks!


well it seems that after last night our new studio space has become official! with the help of many friends and family we celebrated our new space and everything that led us to this point. despite the foot of snow that got dumped in our backyard yesterday morning, it was absolutely perfect in every way. we could not be happier and more grateful to everyone who has supported us over the past few years. so, THANK YOU!!
sierra & juliet

a special thanks to oh darling photography for their always fun photo booth last night, ny ceremony music for playing the most beautiful music, michael stuart catering for their delicious nosh, and bryn from paperfinger for designing our lovely invitation, which brought everyone in. ninecakes, we missed you greatly!
love you all!

vintage garden

juliet and i both swoon over the fruits and veggies at the market. whether we're sourcing kumquats, persimmons, or raspberries, produce is always an element that elevates any design. so, when i was perusing the ny times this weekend and came across these gorgeous illustrations i had to stop and peek.
the story goes...
"From 1850 to 1895, Vilmorin-Andrieux & Cie, a Parisian seed company, commissioned a series of lavish illustrations as advertisements for its vegetables and fruits. The collection of 46 lithographs, by some of the period’s most notable botanical artists, was eventually published as the “Album Vilmorin (Les Plantes Potagères),” a volume that survives in only a few libraries today. The album showcased the work of the company, started in 1743 by Claude Geoffroy, the daughter of a seed merchant, and Pierre D’Andrieux, a botanist to King Louis XV, and the pioneering work done by their heirs, who were among the first to practice the science of seed breeding."-NY Times

Roost Flowers!

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be featured on Becky Devlin's blog Sugar From Sunshine. Becky, who owned and ran a small organic flower farm for many years, began designing floral arrangements from the fields of flowers she so lovingly grew. Now her passion has turned into a full fledged design operation, Roost Flowers & Designs. Her wonderful, holistic approach to the art of floral design makes us think she is the bees knees.

chandeliers. yes, please!

in the off chance that we get to have a lazy morning i typically find myself catching up on some good old internet time. most of the time i come across something fun or inspiring and i don't even know how i got there. that is the beauty of the world wide web.
today's goal was to find us a chandelier. this is where it took me...
