{the many magnolias of nyc...}

Am I really seeing little snowflakes out my office window? To think just yesterday I was in warm and sunny NYC where Central Park's magnolia trees are in full bloom.

It was a packed 2 days but my event on Wednesday night at the Essex Hotel was a great success... phew!

I can't say that I would ever stay at the Hudson Hotel again. Funky outdoor bar, but the strobe lights in the lobby and the teeny tiny rooms just didn't do it for me.

I did however scout some amazing venues for my next visits, had a lovely dinner on the August patio, and finally got a taste of my first Magnolia Bakery cupcake. The icing was sensational!

I'll be spending the weekend in my wee art space working on wedding invitations for friends. With magnolias on my mind, I think I'll leave Jane's post open on my laptop for inspiration... aren't these photos gorgeous?!

  1. Perfect pairing! Yum the cupcakes are divine!

  2. Ahh! So happy you like the magnolias I posted. I'm hoping to get out and take some pictures of the ones in my neighbourhood. But there were big fat snowflakes falling earlier. Can you believe it? The poor magnolias must be confused too!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  3. I've had dinner at August - think it was one of the best meals of my life. Glad you had a good time.

  4. That cupcake looks heavenly!! And I love the magnolias, one of my favourite trees! Have a great week!
