The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker

July 28th, 2017

Anyone that knows us well, knows we are obsessed with great brunch places in Los Angeles. We recently discovered The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker in West Hollywood by Sunset Plaza. The place is airy and exudes a chic and cheerful ambience with a really cute outdoor terrace overlooking Sunset Blvd. The two rooms on either side of the terrace are bright and modern and the entire restaurant presents a friendly vibe.

The food is more California casual and everything we ordered was delicious from clams to salads, The Butcher's Burgers, sandwiches and the best French toast in town which is served in various flavors. The Icing on the cake is the cappuccino which was so beautiful and reminiscent of cafes in France. Early afternoon can very easily progress into late afternoon sipping cappuccino, watching foot traffic and fashionable boutiques on Sunset Blvd.

Would highly recommend this place to our readers.

The Gulkand Collection by Sabyasachi

July 21st, 2017

Sabyasachi has been one of our favorite Indian couture designers for quite some time. His designs have adorned many of our brides. His latest collection, the Gulkand Collection is nothing short of stunning with deep tones and rich, luxurious fabrics. The embroidery and bead work alone is enough to swoon over.

Seared Restaurant at One & Only Palmilla

July 14th, 2017

With our passion to try new restaurants and particularly a restaurant by Jean George's at One and Only Palmilla in Cabo, we had to make reservations to embark on yet another culinary adventure at Seared. The night was breezy and star lit sky created quite a magical feel. We arrived at the restaurant to have a completely unhurried dining experience and it was just that! Each course was more decadent than the previous course and with hauntingly beautiful live music, amazing decor and delicious food and libations, our dining experience was definitely one to not forget.

Dinner with Priyanka Chopra

July 7th, 2017

A few weeks ago we were approached by Angeleno Magazine to plan and design a soirée honoring Priyanka Chopra for gracing the cover. Need less to say we did not hesitate as we have always been huge fans of the magazine as well as Ms. Chopra. We had about two weeks to plan this dinner which was taking place at Montage Beverly Hills in the patio of Georgi Restaurant.

On the quick design walk thru, we decided to do one long table as well as create a small intimate area for cocktail Hour. Since we were going to hedge the patio, Nikki decided to do green table linen with accents of gold. Smokey mirrors were placed on top of the long tables bearing Apple green linen and custom chair covers in beige and gold were paired with the table.
Chargers on the table were layered with plain glass chargers as an under plate and another porcelain charger on top. Custom napkins, menus and place cards in gold color were placed atop chargers for a cohesive look. Flowers in sherbet color palette and candles by Grand Eclair further enhanced and heightened the drama. Once candles were lit the end result was decadent, romantic and super elegant.
Priyanka was accompanied by a close group of friends and soon after guests took their seats, she said a few words. The evening proved to be a huge success with beautiful ambiance, delicious food, lot of laughter and lovely company.

Thank you to our partners!

  • #Repost @archdigest - #JacquesArpels was inspired by the clover shapes in architecture inspiring him to design his famous Alhambra collection, which is also our inspiration for one of our upcoming events! #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #eventdesign #alhambra #moorisharchitecture #vancleefarpels ・・・
Half a century ago, inspired by the decorative patterns Jacques Arpels observed on his travels, @vancleefarpels launched Alhambra—a clover-shaped gold medallion resembling a Moorish quatrefoil. “As an architectural element, it appears in almost every culture,” says Van Cleef & Arpels’s current president and CEO, Nicolas Bos. “In jewelry, it’s just as adaptable.” Today the French luxury brand remains captivated by the motif, having reimagined it in myriad styles and stones. This past May, to mark the Alhambra collection’s 50th anniversary, Van Cleef launched nine new pieces with a party at the 16th-century El Badi Palace in Marrakech. While celebrating with them, AD found a few more not-to-miss sights in Marrakech, including the  14th-century Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa pictured here.
