Former Shake the Tree staffer, Mary Potter, created Baba.Tili out of her home workshop in New Hampshire. We love her passion for growing baby succulents and creating artful arrangements using found and vintage containers. Mary has come down to the shop a few times to host planting and custom design workshops.
Brooklyn hipsters move over. Boston is stepping up its game.
“Create Boston” celebrates the collaboration of local visual artists, chefs, bartenders, DJs and musicians. This year’s festival happened in the warehouse spaces of the Design Center near the Seaport. Each artist displayed their work and was paired with a chef and a bartender who created delicious food and unusual cocktails inspired by the artwork! This year’s event included chefs/bartenders from Tavern Road, Oak + Rowan, Drink, Back Bar, Whole Heart Provisions, Bar Mezzana, Trina’s Starlight Lounge, Committee and Tiger Mama! Extra shout out to Tavern Road’s amazing shredded pork tacos! Our favorite music was from a local band Cask Mouse ( with ties to our friends at neighboring Neptune Oyster)!
No date set for 2017 but absolutely go next year!
We love planning out beautiful meals and entertaining our friends. Much of the love is rooted in setting everything up. These new pieces are from Roost and Bloomingville (a Scandinavian design company we recently fell in love with!).

We have a serious crush on the gorgeous back line of this En Creme dress, modeled by Texas blogger Jasmine of 1 Fine Cookie! As the summer heat transitions to autumn’s cooler temps, this dress is perfect for layering with a crop denim jacket and leather boots!
Apotheker’s Kitchen is a local small-batch chocolate company started by Russ and Shari Apotheker out of the Crop Circle Kitchens! Their bars and super-addictive marshmallows are honey-sweetened and made with love!

One of our most favorite restaurants in town in Myers + Change, a collaboration between James Beard award winner chef/owner Joanne Chang and Executive Chef Karen Akunowicz!
