Highlights from St. Louis

I just came residence from St. Louis in which I presented Jewish holiday concepts to a group of females from Nishmah. I lucked out with the climate—it was a stunning spring weekend and all the trees and spring flowers in St. Louis have been in full bloom. I couldn’;t resist taking some photos of the gorgeous neighborhoods with charming older houses.


The day was split into 3 components: a energy-stage presentation of my preferred Jewish holiday suggestions taken from this website, a hands-on demonstration where I showed how to generate a centerpiece making use of fresh flowers and fruit, and a craft workshop the place all the participants made paper flowers for Shavuot.


The best portion of the day was meeting all the terrific women who took element and place collectively the event.

I was thrilled to ultimately meet Brooke Pratt (best appropriate) the genius behind the Sucre Shop—we are site/net buddies and it was so wonderful to finally meet in particular person. Thankfully for me, my sister Lisa (bottom left) lives in St. Louis so it was a treat to get to spend time with her. The females (bottom correct) who put this collectively did an unbelievable job.

Can we talk about the residence in which this took spot? OMG…g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!


Not only are the house and grounds extraordinary, I loved how the decor was so understated. Traditional furnishings with a neutral shade palate, plenty of gray washed furnishings and greige colored, textured fabrics.

Lunch was served outside overlooking the beautiful grounds.

Salmon nicoise, quiche and veggies made the perfect lunch on a spring day.

The final hour was invested generating paper flowers out of dyed coffee filters

I will be posting how-to make these in a couple of weeks. It was a fantastic day…I hope every person had as much enjoyable as I did!
