Cherry Blossoms

April 10, 2015

Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC. The gift and annual celebration honor the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and the continued close relationship between the two countries. It also is the most beautiful time in the District. The perfect shade of pink overtakes the tidal basin and the streets of D.C and the DW blog!

There is nothing the DW team loves more than a night filled with delicious food + company! It’s as if the lovely ladies of Taylor & Hov Events knew this when planning their very first TopNosh Event, a fabulous tasting evening filled with some of our very own District Favorites. To stimulate our tastebuds, Spilled Milk Catering provided a scrumptious four-course menu surrounded by a stunning ambiance created by CHICKA. Industry professionals from all different areas gathered to network, taste and learn from each other! Thank you ladies for providing our DC hub with such a fabulous gathering.

Elegant Easter

April 3, 2015

When you walk through stores this time of year, you’d think that Easter was a holiday reserved just for kids. Adorable little Easter dresses for the girls and suits for the boys. Brightly-colored baskets with brightly-colored eggs. And, of course, let’s not forget the Easter Bunny.

Today, we are sharing a fabulous shoot that Marigold and Grey pulled together right in time for Easter weekend. As she prepares for the weekend to welcome guests into her room, she wanted to create something elegant and organic, something that would remind her of childhood but, ultimately, would be the the perfect adult Easter…and yes, there would be Cadbury eggs involved!

Waking up in the warmth of the boutique rooms of the Clifton Inn was the perfect beginning to Day Two. Each room on the property is uniquely different and has a history behind that given room. I had the pleasure of staying in the Rivanna Suite. My favorite part of the room was the cushioned window seat, ideally positioned for viewing the gardens and croquet lawn!

After a night among new friends, we woke up and fueled ourselves with some power food for the day. Then we ventured out to a few local wineries along the Monticello Wine Trail.

(It’s never to early to start tasting wine, right?)

Each vineyard gave us a taste of their palatable wines, and each one focused on different varietals that incorporated Virginia grapes, grown right on site. The slight drizzle of they day added a uniquely, cozy element.

After our share of sips and samples, we stopped for a quick lunch break at the well-known restaurant SaltSalt specializes in sandwiches, cheese + charcuterie, and specialty retail with emphasis on local, seasonal, and small-batch items. Here at DW, we are all about supporting local business. If you’re interested in an wedding or other event in the area, Salt can provide lunches, welcome-bag gift items + any local favors for you and your guests.

Overall, the day was filled with laughter, learning and, of course, new relationships fermented right alongside the wine.
