Floating Plants

Blue Hill at Stone Barns

I've picked up on a big trend happening, especially in restaurants... flying plants!  Including those at Blue Hill at Stone Barns and at terrain at Styer's.

Laureen Barber, an owner of the sustainable-food mecca, Blue Hill, created the floating masterpieces from Rhododendron 'English Roseum,' Mountain Laurel (Kalmia latifolia), Lace Leaf Maple (Acer palmatum dissectum), Weigela florida 'Wine & Roses,' Smoke Bush (Cotinus obovatus), and Showy Medinilla (Medinilla magnifica).

And if you havent been to Blue Hill it's worth the trip.  "The main dining room occupies a former dairy barn on the Rockefeller estate, part of a complex of Norman-style farm buildings built in the 1920s. The original barn structures coexist with new architectural elements, framing views of the 80-acre working farm and creating a backdrop to the restaurant’s idyllic Hudson Valley setting."

terrain at Styers, located in Glen Mills, PA,"celebrates the cycle of the seasons and the bounty of the land. Executive Chef Keith Rudolf takes pride in crafting menus from the seasonal harvest of farmers we know and trust."

terrain breaks barriers in design and lead the way with their floating plants in their cafe!

Love them or hate them?
