Lounge 22

A fabulous new chair from Lounge 22. The back of the chair glows for a 12 hour period of time. The battery pack is hidden in the seat - genius!

The chair rents for approximately $20.

..... I am already thinking of fun ways to use it .

KDJ Botanica

What can I say about Katherine Daught Jacobs at KDJ Botanica? In a word she is " Inspirational".

Her flowers stole the show this weekend in Newport at the La Bella Bride Wedding Showcase. Grazier Photography and Traci Romano Events each had her flowers on our table designs and the comments just kept coming in -

The best way to reach out to Katherine is to call her KDJ Botanica Studio in Westport , CT
at: 203.226.0202. Her website is :

The photographs above are from a wedding we collaborated on this summer and were photographed by Justin Marantz.

..... Lot's more to come on all of the fun we had at the La Bella Wedding Showcase

How Cool!

Today while updating the website, I came across a link to my name on AMAZON. I clicked on it and noticed there was a review from me on a book titled FABJob Guide to Becoming a Party Planner.

I participated with quotes throughout the book and my review of the book was printed on the back cover in the time it was just a download now it is actually a published book. I was thrilled at the time to be asked to participate and am elated now that it is a published book.

Editorial Reviews

The FabJob Guide to Become a Party Planner is a wonderfully written easy to follow educational tool for anyone entering into this industry as well as experienced professionals. --Traci Romano, The Romano Group

Well, I guess I should buy a copy! [smile! ]

Tomorrow we are heading to Newport for the LaBella Bride Wedding Showcase and I couldn't be more excited! The magazine while still in its infancy stage is truly an inspiraiton to read. Katina and Robin have done an amazing job developing it to be a luxury read for all brides.

It is going to be a beautiful weekend in Newport visit with us and enjoy all of the fun! Our design lounge , in collaboration with Grazier Photography will be a fun place to relax and enjoy the day while viewing the latest in event design and talking to many experts including our friends at at Once Upon a Bride in New York City. The ultra talented Modern Bride Trendsetter Stacey Lynn will be with us designing the hair and makeup for our models and you might even be able to catch her ear for some wedding day makeup tricks.

I don't ever travel lightly so much of our studio in SONO will be traveling to Newport with us---- Try on some gorgeous hair jewlery, pick out a show stopping necklace, browse our invtitation collections and much more.
