ABC Eye Candy

Whenever I go to New York, whether its for business or pleasure, I absolutely have to stop into my favorite store ABC Carpet & Home. Its so inspiring walking into this wonderland of colors and textures, and they always have the most beautiful window displays. Here are just a few of my favorite things I saw last week... enjoy the eye candy!

Pretty Spring Garden Cocktails

Spring is probably my most favorite time of the year. The weather is getting warmer and my garden is starting to bloom… everything just gets prettier in spring. I love the idea of taking advantage of the seasonal elements to “embellish” the unexpected, like a cocktail! Edible flowers, garden herbs and seasonal fruit are perfect for making a libation lively and of course extra pretty. Here are some of my spring cocktail picks, perfect for brunch with the ladies, a dinner party on the patio, or even just a date night in with my husband (and the dogs of course)… so let’s start celebrating the season!

  *Tip:  Freeze edible flowers, herbs and fruit in ice cubes to add to a non-alcoholic drink. How pretty would a few of these cubes in a flavored sparkling water look? Add some fresh squeezed citrus or a splash of juice and you've got yourself a a spring mocktail!  Cheers! Dena Designs
