Last Tuesday we were honored to attend the Luncheon for a Cure sponsored by CT Cottages & Gardens and Valerie Wilson Travel benefiting the Connecticut affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Having been touched by this disease in many different ways, we wanted to remember friends and family with some of our favorite pink pieces…

We’re back from a lovely evening at the Stamford Hilton where we mixed and mingled with divine designers under the boughs of Japanese maples in beautiful architectural planters. One of the many highlights of the evening was meeting the fabulous Jamie Drake (he even complimented us on choosing the perfect bouquets to coordinate with his Schumacher table runners – swoon!) and seeing the gorgeous work of all the nominees. While Connecticut Cottages & Gardens will be publishing party pictures very soon, we didn’t want to keep you waiting – so here are the 2010 IDA winners!

With so many talented designers and architects creating beautiful environments here in Connecticut and in nearby Westchester, it’s no surprise that we all look forward to THE local design event of the year – The Innovation in Design Awards hosted by Cottages & Gardens Publications in the Garden Pavilion at The Stamford Hilton on May 25, 2010.
The Innovation in Design Awards - May 25, 2010
Needless to say, we were thrilled when our friends at CTC&G asked us if we would be willing to create centerpieces for and attend this year’s dinner; who wouldn’t want to mix and mingle with the best of the best, including world-renowned design innovator and honoree Jamie Drake?

The tables will be dressed with Temple Garden in Appletini (don’t you love that color?), a pattern Jamie designed for Schumacher so we thought pink and cream peonies, lilies, hydrangeas and orchids would add the right pop of spring.
