As I shared yesterday, my sister Saree’s birthday dinner decor was inspired by her love of wildflowers. And for the evening’s menu, the same applied.
For my sister Saree’s birthday this year, I hosted a small family dinner at my parents’ home in Santa Monica. Wanting to create an evening that felt like a true reflection of Saree and her style, I centered the menu and elements on some of her favorite things, wildflowers.
I’ve long been a fan of burning herbs, as much for their cleansing abilities as for their amazing scents. With this in mind, I’ve been looking for the opportunity to create my own smudge bundles, and my sister Saree’s birthday dinner was the perfect excuse.
Yesterday, I shared all of the lovely design elements for Stephanie Schur’s special day. Today: all of the delicious details. Created by the always-amazing Annie Campbell, the vegetarian menu inspired by what was “seasonal, summery and best” at the Santa Monica Farmers Market was everything Stephanie had hoped for and more.
Within these pages, I’ve often mentioned my love for Stephanie Schur, and her exquisite flower shop, Botany – a long-time friend, she is as lovely as the arrangements she creates. With her third beautiful baby on the way, a celebration was in order, and the day itself was one filled with joy and love.
I’ve already shared several wonderful classes with a floral favorite, Stephanie at Botany. She can always be counted on for swoon-worthy arrangements and invaluable tips and tricks. For this installement, we learned how to perfect those of the edible variety.

I’ve made no secret of my love for Stephanie Schur and her amazing flower shop, Botany. Tucked inside the Brentwood Country Mart, it is a magical Parisian flower shop brought to LA, and my favorite local storefront. I couldn’t imagine a better destination for an afternoon of creating our own inspired arrangements.
