A red brick exterior, spacious sidewalk patio, and delectable café menu highlight the charming European appeal of Rue Lafayette, whose beginnings were documented on a recent episode of Renovation Realities on HGTV. Early-morning strollers, comptrollers, and world-weary street mimes can start their morning of artfully aimless ambling with Rue Lafayette's sweet, flaky croissants imported from France. The chocolate croissant ($2.25) matches particularly well with large cups of the café's drip coffee ($2.25) or frothy cappuccino ($3.55). Lunchers, meanwhile, can feast on the quiche ($6.99) and mix it together in their digestive centrifuge with the sinfully tasty croissant bread pudding ($5.99). Since Rue Lafayette's dishes rotate with the stately dance of the seasons, each polite café employee will cheerfully lay out today's recommendations, tomorrow's libations, and yesterday's neutron radiation gyrations. The café's mad scientists have also combined breakfast and lunch into an unholy (yet delicious) monstrosity known as brunch, which gets unleashed from its chains every Saturday and Sunday.
In ancient China, sky lanterns were used as a method of communication on the battlefield. Nowadays, at the lantern festivals celebrated in many countries, the floating objects are regarded as symbolic of letting go of your past self so that a new, better self can emerge in the New Year. Naturally, these beautiful ornamental lights have found their way into many celebrations with their thought-provoking beauty, including wedding ceremonies, gallery openings, and masquerade parties.
Chinese Sky Lanterns offers an expansive collection of handmade, biodegradable, and eco-friendly sky, water, and hanging lanterns. The lanterns don't require any assembly, and are made from flame-retardant papers in a host of vibrant and muted colours to match the look and feel of any celebration.
The petal pushers at Flowers to the People assemble sustainable holiday centerpieces with blossoms from local sowers or sustainable Californian and South American farms. Customers order personalized arrangements that showcase hydroponic roses, eucalyptus, orchids, and other specialty flowers to present to a loved one, accent a holiday buffet, or block Uncle Josh's cross-table reach for the gravy boat. Going the extra ecological step, the flower shop collects many of its vases and buckets from antique dealers and secondhand shops, or binds bouquets in recycled pint glasses, wine glasses, and mason jars. The environmentally sympathetic staff composts plant waste and repurposes packaging materials into solar-powered hot-dog cookers.
