So excited to share these photos from my latest collaboration with Savour Productions. I've always loved the look of qipaos especially for modern weddings and thought a bouquet inspired by Hong Kong itself would go perfectly. I loved the idea of mixing more aggressive dark proteas with soft pink peonies and flowing greens. I was trying to capture the essence of Hong Kong: Really intense city life flanked by beautiful nature all around it.
WOW were the Spring 2017 shows a doozy! Fashion will always be a little part of me, and I couldn't help but get a little inspiration pairing them back to some of my favorite flower arrangements. Which were your favorite shows this season?
Maisie Williams showed up at the Emmys on Sunday wearing a custom Markus Lupfer. I love her and her style. She always looks so refreshing and daring, taking risks that are beyond the typical showing-a-lot-of-skin that most young celebrities have taken to. Anyway, this beautiful number with embroidered flowers was my inspiration for this week's bouquet. I don't think I've ever used such random and bold colors in one arrangement before but I think I may need to start doing more often. What do you think?
Afternoon Tea at the Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong should be on everyones bucket list! Being the Yankee American that I am, I never quite understood the idea of "high tea" or "afternoon tea." Heck, I don't really even like tea. I'm loyal to coffee. But this is a one not to miss.
The Ritz has their signature tea at 2 locations: Cafe 103, The Ritz's more modern restaurant on the 103rd floor from 3:30pm-5:30pm, or at The Lounge & Bar on the 102nd floor from 2:15pm-4:15pm or 4:30pm-6:30pm. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation online and request a seat by the window to get the full view.
Perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon.
