ab chao design camp participants at Sunday Suppers Studios in Brooklyn

Hi everyone! First off sorry for the brief hiatus here on ‘le blog. A. LOT. has been going on ’round my parts. No, not those parts. Geez. Short story, I started an internship, went to a big ole Queens wedding, and last weekend helped Ab Chao down in Brooklyn with her Dewit Design Camp. Thanks to Elizabeth from Seagrass Studio for tweeting at me awhile ago when Anna Beth was looking for an assistant to help her out while she was in town.

Camp was held at the beautiful Sunday Suppers Studios down in south Williamsburg. Its a bit out of the way for this Astoria dwelling gal, but a BEAUTIFUL space. Honestly, I’m no photographer, but every picture is captivating when the backdrop is white walls, natural cement, rough hewn wood tables and floor to ceiling sunshine. So hot right now.

bouquet by Kat Flowers and Coffee by Urban Rustic

I mean for heaven’s sake. Look at that gorgeous centerpiece by Kat Flower, it even makes the coffee air-pots look chic. We were kept caffeinated by Urban Rustic, they were super nice and sweet and accommodating, that counts for a lot hey? Each morning I hauled our coffee supplies down Driggs Avenue on the B62 bus, and they never once laughed at this little girl carrying an absurd amount of stuff. Like. A. Boss.

lunch by RadishNYC, cookies by Momofuku Milk Bar

Lunch both days we ordered from Radish, and IT WAS PHENOMENAL. Their catering menu is pretty spectacular. They really hit it out of the park on Sunday with this salad/rice/vinaigrette thing happening. I wanted to drink it from the pretty glass beaker. Cookies came from Momofuku Milk Bar, which I had never had before and yes, it is all its cracked up to be. Thanks for delivering ‘slightly’ outside of your zone guys, winky face!

I kept commenting to AB how nice people were being. Which maybe she couldn’t fully grasp, being from the south where people are of course hospitable by nature. But for New Yorkers, and Williamsburg, I was truly floored, maybe it was the beautiful fall weather or what, but many many thanks people of Brooklyn for being awesome, and I’ll hit you up the next time I’m there for sure.

Your photos are gorgeous! I’m still totally in awe of Kat’s centerpiece, and the whole place really. I had my camera the whole time and only used my phone. Thank you for all of your organizing, it was a totally delightful weekend and super well run!
