To create from scratch is something very special. I sometimes forget as a professional creative human, that my ability to take something that once lived secretly in my mind and watch it develop and become real before my eyes, is pretty magical. It is something we all have to remind ourselves in times of stress and when we are feeling overwhelming pressure.
I have been working with the amazing team of flower fairies at Wildflora for a few months now. It has been such a delight to evolve my knowledge and creativity when it comes to florals. So when it came time to have their Grand Opening party for their new 2nd shop, I was thrilled to be able to make that night a magical botanical reality.
It is a chilly and grey day in LA. Which simply reminds me that it is not yet summer. So to warm up my soul and celebrate the changing spring season, I decided to put together this little gem that is both savory and light.
The cherry blossoms have bloomed and the spring weather has begun to feel like summer, so I felt it was only appropriate to spend the afternoon in the sun sipping tart cheery + watermelon rose cocktails, while reading the new issue of Bon Appetit magazine.
