Feeling the Love


The other day my friend Ilana wrote a heart felt blog post about our relationship as friends, work wives and fellow Mothers. Her words brought a tear to my eye as I was reminded how lucky I am for the friends I have made while living in New York for the past 16 years.


Valentine's Day is the ultimate excuse to show your love. And obviously you know that we will use any excuse to have a random brunch, party or gathering.



When Ilana asked if I could style a brunch for her to host for her "work wife" friends...I was like, um, yes. Yes yes I would love to.


I'm addicted to black, white, pink and gold. Throw some copper in. I can't help it.

Totally obsessed with these marble plates from CB2. And of course we have the most fabulous menus printed by Minted for every setting.


For the seating cards, Ilana wrote a "love note" to each guest.


Hershey's was behind the idea of this gathering and provided chocolates upon chocolates for us to play with and gift.


We adore Chef Sue Park and brought her in to make a delicious breakfast for us. Smoked salmon heart shaped toasts - oh my yum! Sausages in a blanket, heart shaped frittatas, kale salad with roasted acorn squash and heart shaped pie pops filled with brie and jam. YUM!!


This brunch was such a fabulous excuse to have a delicious meal, cocktails and laughs with best friends, new friends and work friends. Needless to say...this brunch also made for some great photos....


Thank you Ilana for always making me part of the fun. And damn our hair looks great.


To all my friends and family, I Love you.  And let the Valentine's Day weekend begin!
