This past Monday night I was so fortunate to be able to attend The Knot Gala at the New York Public Library! The Library is such a stunning building here in New York City and the most exquisite location for a party! After walking up the beautiful steps into the library we were immediately in awe over the gorgeous 11 feet high and 4 feet in diameter wedding gown made from 5,500 flowers including white calla lilies, white hydrangea, white escimo roses, pink rosita vendela roses, gardenias, and phalaenopsis orchids. The extremely talented Preston Bailey was inspired by a Monique Lhuillier sketch to create this masterpeice.

Fall is nipping at our heels and nothing says fall better than a fabulous cocktail! One of my favorites that I invented by accident is what I like to call the Fall-tini! Every sip you take reminds of a crisp fall day and there is no better way than to take a few nips of my newest cocktail. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
