gourmet Jell-O shots with Scandinavian flavors

Our Scandinavian Issue features some killer recipes and inspired combinations for bringing a little molecular gastronomy (and campy good fun) to your drinks – by serving them as gelatin shooters. Created by Chowgirls Catering, these gelled drinks play with scandinavian flavors (by using combinations of herbal and astringent flavors, as well as Aquavit) Photos by Studio Laguna Photography


Farmhouse wedding table with farm animal accents

Our Summer 2013 issue featured this inspiration workbook on getting a luxe farmhouse feel. The catch word here is welcoming – bringing warmth to the table with fresh blackberries and vintage mercury glass candle holders, while bringing a pop of color in the floral. And anything farmhouse needs a touch of whimsy – like the farm animal place card holders.
