Fake Grass and Plastic Leaves

Did someone say park? While the snow continued to fall and sun filled days at Sheep Meadow in Central Park seemed so far away, New Yorkers took advantage of a little pop up park at OpenHouse Gallery in Nolita. American Foliage transformed the space into a Summer wonderland complete with a giant tree, leaves, and a votive lit pond. The result was a little like being on a movie set. It made sense. American Foliage provides props and designs for television, motion pictures and special events.

Park Here was a great success and at times got very crowded. Those who arrived early were rewarded with picnic tables, benches, Fatboy beanbags, and space to claim as their own. Everyone came prepared with board games, knitting needles, cards, take out from Balthazar, and my personal favorite a makeshift picnic consisting of a blanket, salad in a bag, canned peas, canned tuna, a can opener, and Two Buck Chuck. On-site vendors included Luke's Lobster and Intoxicating Creations. Let's just say that there was no shortage of food or fun at this park.

Three rooms of indoor warmth made for a day of rest and relaxation. Rox and Judi w/ an i indulged in chitter chatter, cupcakes, cartwheels, a nap, people-watching, and photography ops.
