Small Business, Big Table

We were so excited to let Elle Magazine come into my Clinton Hill home recently and share brunch with us and some of our favorite mover-and-shaker girlfriends.

Kathryn & I often talk about how many of our (entrepreneurial!) girlfriends are separated by only a degree or two, and we love connecting them to share ideas and collaborate. Dinner parties can be tricky in NYC but when we moved to Clinton Hill, we finally had room for people to gather and a “Creative Women” dinner series began to emerge. We were delighted to share one of these meals with Cotton Codinha, who wrote a lovely piece about the women who inspire us and get us through the daily trials and triumphs of running a small business. The adorable Lianna Tarantin captured some wonderful shots of us with our friends, enjoying brunch (beautifully prepared by Simone Nemirovsky of Table BK), and sitting amongst some of our favorite Fortune Finds.

Our guests at this particular brunch (though at this point there have been many wonderful gatherings!) included florist Taylor Patterson who created beautiful arrangements for our table, Jenny Capano of The Sporting Project, Fallon Nachmani, who recently founded Grayscale PR (and represents yours truly!), Fallon’s incredibly talented sister Simone of Table BK, the fine artist Mary Nelson Sinclair, Elisa Restrepo – one half of the Dieppa Restrepo shoe line, Stacy Smallwood of Hampden Clothing in Charleston, SC, and Erica Cerulo of Of A Kind. We are so grateful to know such cool women and love getting them together… and a big thanks to Elle for giving us yet another excuse to talk shop with the females that inspire us!
