Not to alarm you or anything...but the holidays are four weeks away. Before the guests begin piling in and the hot toddies start flowing, you may want to contemplate giving your pad an ever-so-slight face-lift.
And who better to help than the woman behind some of the city?s most jaw-dropping events? Jung Lee (of Fête) recently opened a home boutique brimming with just the quirky yet functional goods you?ll need come Thanksgivukkah and beyond.
Snag affordable essentials like disposable wooden flatware sets ($6) and these genius acrylic goblets ($18 each), or splurge on hand-painted soup plates ($86 each) and a mouth-blown-glass cake display ($589).
But it was something even more over-the-top that really caught our attention--the showroom topiaries. Lee outfits the space with Edward Scissorhands-like creations from past events, and naturally, we had to know if they were for sale. The answer: yep. Dream up a shape (anything from conventional cones to circus animals), and Lee?s design team (yes, the same ones from her drool-worthy weddings) will whip you up a one-of-a-kind piece (starting at $500).
Cocktail-party icebreaker is served.
