What are your Thanksgiving plans this year?
This year, I'll be spending it at the Yale Club in Manhattan [with the in-laws]. I've never really liked Thanksgiving food, but I always try to indulge myself with my own dessert choices. I bring a Salty Caramel Apple Pie from 4&20 Blackbirds every year. This time I'm also adding a selection of Jeni's Ice Cream from my home state because you cannot have pie without ice cream!
What are your favorite flowers to use in the fall?
Some of my favorite flowers for the fall are proteas, roses, amaranths, astilbes and so much more. I love texture and depth in my arrangements so I like to use other plants along with my flowers like eucalyptus, thistle, berries, artichokes, pampas grass or even dried flowers. The stranger or more alien-like the arrangement, the better.
