Design Week PDX

In addition to Flora Fauna, Jess also works as a florist for Work/Shop PDX and an assistant to Sue Blue Events, a Portland based event + wedding coordinator/stylist. This week the three collaborated and did a floral and botanical installation for Laptops & Small Talk's sustainable fashion forum at The Good Mod in Portland! The end results were pretty amazing!

Gluten Free Gnocchi

We are big fans of date night. We both enjoy getting dressed up & going out for a nice dinner or cocktails, but, the reality of date night is $$$, so lately we've been trying to get a little more creative with our time. This week we opted for staying home and recreating a fun recipe together, gluten free gnocchi. Plus, what's better than turning on music, opening a bottle of wine & cooking with your person?! The ingredients are simple, the process is easy & the outcome was delicious!
