The annual National Cherry Blossom Festival is taking place right now, in Washington DC. The city started off with 3,000 Cherry Blossom trees in 1912, when Tokyo's mayor Yukio Ozaki presented them to the United States. Washington DC now has over 3,750 Yoshine Cherry Trees gracing the city's parks. We wish we could plan a trip!

We have a new ad campaign with one of Rinne Allen's great photos she took on a trip to England with Mary. As you know, with our love for Logos, we find interest in how company's present themselves. This shot represents our love of the England country side and our interest in exploring. Rinne did a great job of capturing our motive!
Speaking of Rinne, Martha Stewart Living featured a series of her photographs in their March issue.
Rinne captured local business around the Buckhead area. One being the Pie Shop, our favorite treat from our Valentine's Soiree in February!

In the honor of the first day of Spring, here are a few of our favorite linen shots. Linen is obviously a great fabric weight for Spring. What you probably did not know is, in Egypt, linen was used as currency. This is why mummies are wrapped in linen. The amount of linen on a mummy was seen as a display of wealth and a symbol of light and purity.

We have a new love for a magazine series, Kinfolk. Now on Volume 7, the magazine highlights a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. Kinfolk is a collaborative way of expressing the natural way of entertaining. They recognize a table shared by friends, brought together by relationships, and not a forced gathering at a Wedding Reception or the Holidays. Kathrin Koschitzki shared a series of leaf photographs called "Leaving" in Volume 5. We love the originallity of these leaf photographs-

As the weather is getting warmer, it is also time for outdoor entertaining. Polo is a great outdoor activity, filled with style and great cuisine.
The British are thought to have made the sport popular,
but it was actually first created in Manipur, India.
In India, the players called the game
"Sagol Kangjei" and "Pulu".
In Asia players ride atop elephants and camels, while in northern Europe and even in the United States, players sometimes ride on bicycles on asphalt courts.
If you are into Polo or not, here is a start to Spring, with refreshing cocktails, savory bites, and stylish dressing!
