April 2011 Issue
… to Cottages & Gardens for hosting the 5th annual Innovation in Design Awards (the IDA’s for those in the know!) on Tuesday. Held at the Stamford Hilton in their Garden Pavilion, we dined under the stars (under a tent, at tables decorated with DuraLee fabric runners and Diane James flowers) amongst design stars and these little bees even had the honor of meeting Bunny Williams, Anthony Baratta, Philip Gorrivan and Matthew Patrick Smyth.
Calling All Designers!
Needless to say, while the winners of each of the five categories (landscape, kitchen, bath, architecture and interior design) left with gorgeous Juliska trophies in hand, we left with stars in our eyes!

A Pretty Picnic!
… to the Greenwich Chapter of the American Red Cross for inviting us to be a Tabletop Designer for their annual Red & White Ball (sponsored by our fabulous friends at Cottages & Gardens no less!) which was held last Saturday. This year’s theme, “Help is Here”, is a constant reminder of how much a role this invaluable organization plays in providing relief to victims of disasters – whether an earthquake in China, a tsunami in Japan or tornadoes in Tennessee. We were honored to be part of this glamorous evening and had a ball designing our “picnic under the cherry tree!”
