Big momma

Sometimes you need a really big photo for a really big arrangement.

I'm developing a new, expensive camera hobby. With encouragement from my photographer friend Parker, I'm entering a phase most ladies enter in art school. So far it's been really nice shooting film, I'm looking through the lens with more intention and patience and I need those things desperately in my life. I used to think film was a bit unnecessary, but my reverse snobbery is fading. Anything that stretches and inspires is okay over here.

A grown man had to cradle this arrangement in his lap in the back of a cargo van to deliver it to Cipriani 42nd Street last week. I collaborated on a table for the Lenox Hill Gala with my favorite bride and friend Ashley Whittaker and this was our jawdropper. Jawdropper is a good noun. Let's start using it, but sparingly.

  8. I can't stop looking at it. I want to project it onto my wall and never leave my room again. It must be what heaven looks like: I simply can't imagine anything more beautiful.

  9. Jawdropper, indeed. I say we start using the word by draping it over the backs of chairs, splashing it up against the walls, and pouring it into champagne coupes.

  19. This is so beautiful! I've been thinking of enrolling in a short floristry course for a while now, so I think I'll begin to use your blog as inspiration! Good luck with the film photography :) It's great fun - something else I need to get back into once I get my camera fixed! Rhi xx
