For a recent birthday of a special friend, I tried my hand at arranging a bouquet inspired by her favorite designer.
Santa Barbara is blessed with talented floral stylists all over town; this picky recipient was blown-away and totally impressed by the variety, beauty and talent in these arrangements.
We decided to make heart shaped pizzas in our wood burning oven for dinner and chocolate fondue for dessert. Benedetta was here (her one day off on her month long tour) and she gave me a tip to not use olive oil in the dough because it weighs down its consistency. We tried it without oil and it was so beautiful!
