A New Take On Greenery: the Plant Library

Greenery was hot in 2017 and is a trend sure to continue into this year's season, but The Plant Library is bringing you a new take on these popular plants. The Plant Library specializes in plant rentals specifically for events, allowing you to create an impactful greenery statement without running up an exorbitant floral budget. They offer just about any greenery you can imagine and they come in every shape, size, and pot style available!

All you have to do is make your picks, and they take care of the rest! They have 3 pot types to choose from, but will soon be expanding their selection. They currently offer terra cotta, white, or grey. Their plants come in dessert, native, evergreen varieties which can be installed in tabletop, vignette or wall sizes.

The idea for the Plant Library was born from it's sister company Brown Paper Design. Once a floral studio, Brown Paper Design eventually grew into a full service event and design company. They loved using plants in their decor and design, but the choices for plant rentals were limited and it was wasteful to purchase plants for one time use. They thought it'd be so much more cost effective if they were able to rent the plants a few times. So, they started The Plant Library to offer aesthetically pleasing plant rentals for events!

Now, they offer an affordable and aesthetically pleasing option to warm up event spaces. Clients get a huge bang for their buck because these plants transform a space and can create a statement wall or display for a fraction of the cost if they were to purchase plants themselves.

Ashes & Diamonds Winery: the New Napa Valley

Though we love a classic wine country winery, the younger crowd in the bay area have been craving a breath of fresh air and they've recently gotten just that- in the form of Ashes & Diamonds Winery. This winery has quite literally taken Napa Valley back to the roots of its fame- the 1960's- and this can be seen in the decor as well as the wine making. Focused on the classic Napa Valley style cabs that made their world debut in the 60's and 70's, Ashes & Diamonds is making exceptional wine with an even better experience.

We haven't seen a winery with such a clear aesthetic since Scribe Winery first made its debut, and we are loving this! The mid-century modern decor, fresh color palette, and bold architecture are bringing youth back to the Napa Valley.

Owner Kashy Khaledi's hope is to create classic, elegant California wines that are representative of site and vintage- something that is certainly easier said than done. He assembled an a-team of winemakers and growers to ensure that they are crafting some of the valley's finest vino.

If you have the chance to stop by the winery, there are a few different options as far as experiences go. These range from your standard wine tasting, to a food and wine pairing, to an all out immersive tour and reserve tasting.

In addition to the standard food and wine experiences, Ashes & Diamonds also has been hosting several workshop series this winter. Centered around woolens, baking, and wellness, each workshop series explores a different topic with experts in the field. Sign up and browse their offerings here.


Ashes & Diamonds is bringing a fresh perspective to winemaking and Napa Valley style and we want to know what you think about it! Leave us a comment or suggest the next place we should go.
