As you know, The US Open started this week, so I had to bring out the famous tennis ball cupcake! I purchased this from Bill's Bar and Burger, they have amazing cupcakes, and they liked it so much, they used it in their email blast one year to promote the dessert! So sad Rafael Nadal cannot defend his title this year, I am rooting for Andy Murray or Milos Raonic to win AND Maria Sharapova for the ladies! Hope your Thursday is a real "sweet" day !!

I really had to show you my 2 favorite table settings at the 2014 Architectural Digest Home Design Show. Before we know it, the 2015 show will be upon us! This first one was just amazing, and designed by The New York Design Center and designer Kati Curtis. The design was pairing masculine with feminine side by side. The results were pretty awesome!
KNOLL WITH HOK was my second favorite
the concept of partnership is expressed with a team of blues and reds, which reflect the brand identities of knoll and the newly merged hok and bbg-bbgm.
really loved these chairs!
French macarons made me smile !!

The theme of the 2014 Philadelphia Flower Show was ARTiculture and this display really lived up to the name. Showing various artists, it was really such a fun portion of the show.
Cool, right ?
Not shocked we have some ribbon winners for this display.
I know I am bad, but he reminded me of Larry from The Three Stooges! And yes, Larry was my favorite!
But of course it is Rodin !
I really loved this with the doves. So pretty,
The Girl with the Pearl Earring is one of my favorite works of art and movies
I hope my photos interest you in paying a visit to the Philadelphia Flower Show. If you are into flowers or art in general, you will enjoy it very much. Each year they really make you shake your head when you see what they can come up with!
