A while back we visited a restaurant in LA called The Eveleigh before a concert, and I fell in love with the simple decor. White stoneware plates, simple streamlined glasses and white farm napkins. The only decor that adorned the tables were tiny white votives.

But then a visit to the LA Flower Mart and I am reminded that it will always be about flowers for me. The more the better in as many textures as imaginable.  I wrote a post a while back about the LA Flower District and the vendors I visited there, if you’re ever in the mood to go and hunt down a bargain.  Even if you’re not planning for an event, it’s amazing to just walk around and buy a bunch of hydrangeas for yourself.  We all deserve to have fresh flowers in the house from time to time, for no other reason than just because they make us happy, right?
