Watermelon Whip

Watermelon Whip

One of my favorite childhood memories was sneaking downstairs with my cousins to “raid” our Bobby’s fridge in the middle of the night for a delectable shpritz of whipped cream. There was nothing like that “sssss” sound as we made a perfectly-balanced mound of whipped cream on our fingers as we enjoyed the sweet treat we had helped ourselves to. Here is a fun to make idea that captures all the “yum” of whipped cream, and looks adorable too. (sorry – no “sssss” sound)

Shavous Table

I love flowers, so I always look forward to creating the Shvuos tablescape.

When I visited Tali's new Global Flower Shop in Lakewood, I was taken by it's spacious, bright, and  airy garden-like decor. I knew then that I wanted to share that experience with you by setting up this table in the shop  in honor of Shvuos

This idea makes an impressive centerpiece  without using too  many flowers.

My original plan was to use assorted color raffia with a matching Gerber Daisy in each one.  The Gerber Daisies were not available at the time of the photo shoot.
