Spring Tablescape with Faux Florals

IMG_2990 We know that Spring is here when the major showers start to hit! With the recent rain, we are so excited to see that plenty of foliage and plants are getting hydrated in this California Drought. One of our favorite parts about Spring is of course the amazing florals! We’re not just talking real flowers either—our hearts have been recently set on our faux collection at Rolling Greens. Our large inventory of faux florals are perfect for creating long-lasting, elegant centerpieces that can be used time and time again.

Inspired by the soft hues of the season and faux florals, we created a tablescape that seamlessly transfers your Winter décor straight into Spring! Trust us—no one will believe the centerpiece is faux! See our tips below for creating your own spring table decor, and join us at both Rolling Greens locations to pick out your florals today. Spring is the perfect time to de-clutter and arrange your living space for the new season, so make a pot of coffee and get decorating!

1. To create the focal point of our centerpiece, we used five vintage jars: one large jar in the center, two medium jars on either side, and lastly, two small jars layered in next to the medium jars.

2. Then, we filled the three bigger jars with large florals. Our biggest jar is our main focal point—so we used Protea for vivid colors. Protea are amazing since they have such a unique structure and can be masculine or feminine.

3. For our two medium jars, we layered in white hydrangeas to make a full and voluminous arrangement.

4. For our small jars, we used a pretty blue-green floral and fluffed up the leaves to add volume. Each layer we add in corresponds with the next and filled the voids to create a full and seamless arrangement!

5. Next, we used an assortment of peonies and succulents intertwined with each other to create an extension of the arrangement that reached down both sides of the table.

6. For the table setting, we used white chargers (from your winter décor!) and added a cool-toned brown charger on top. To add a pop of color and pattern that ties in with the arrangement, we used our patterned bowls with a pop of blue. Textured pink and blue- toned glasses tied the colors together and an romantic chalice finished each setting.

Designing a Harvest Table
IMG_6637.jpg

The harvest season has always been a source of great inspiration for us. With fall products going out in stores over the next couple of weeks we are eagerly awaiting the season and hopefully a climate change! To kick off the season we are sharing a few fall tabletop ideas with you.IMG_6636IMG_6635 IMG_6632-1IMG_6633Our newly remodeled pantry area and stunning new products such as our aged turkish cutting boards, glassware and graphic serving bowls adorned the event perfectly! With gourmet appetizers from our friends at The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, cocktails and a homemade cake we had all the right ingredients for a dinner party!  We decorated the center of the table with a faux succulent garland that we made entirely out of pieces found in our stores. Creating your own is simple just ask any of our sales reps to help you put one together. We topped off the centerpiece with our pillar mission candles and tea lights in some of our favorite small containers.IMG_6638

Designing your own harvest table is fun and it’s easier than you’d think! So join us and be inspired!IMG_6634

 

Blood Orange + Beet Salad
IMG_91371-e1439399864196.jpg

AFullSizeRenders the temperatures rise over the weekend here in Los Angeles we'll be craving some refreshing and filling. We couldn't resist to share this recipe when we were looking thru our cookbooks, does that look delicious or what? This recipe was actually created during the holiday season by Chef Corey at Flour1, but we want to make it RIGHT NOW. Fresh feta, toasted walnuts and an orange vinaigrette, yum!

 

 

So here's what you'll need:

Ingredients

2 lb/910 g beets, a mix of red and gold

1 tsp kosher salt

1 cup/115 g walnut pieces

2 blood oranges (or regular oranges if you cannot find blood oranges)

8 cups/200 g loosely packed baby arugula

8 oz/255 g soft fresh goat cheese

Blood Orange Vinaigrette

1 blood orange (or regular orange)

1 small shallot, finely diced

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp honey

1 tsp kosher salt

⅛ tsp freshly ground black pepper

3 tbsp sherry vinegar

¼ cup/60 ml extra-virgin olive oil

Special Equipment: rimmed baking sheet, Microplane or other fine-rasp grater

Steps:

1. Cut the tops of the beets, leaving a little of the stem intact and scrub them well. In a large saucepan sprinkle salt and add water to cover the beets by about 2 inches. Cover and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to a medium-low and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the beets are tender and can be pierced with a knife. Drain and set aside until the beets are cool enough to be handled. Use a kitchen towel that you don't mind staining to hold the beets. Remove the skins by rubbing the towel firmly against the beets. When the beets are completely cool, cut them into bite-size wedges.

2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and place a rack in the center of the oven. Spread the walnuts in a single layer on the baking sheet and toast in the oven, shaking the pan once or twice for even toasting, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the nut are golden brown, Remove from the oven and let cool.

3. Cut the top and bottom of each orange. Stand one of the oranges on a flat end. Using a sharp paring knife, carve away the rind from the orange, starting from the top and cutting downward and curving inward, until all the rind is gone and you are left with just the fruit. Repeat with the remaining orange. Cut the oranges crossfire into thin slices and set aside for the salad.

4. TO MAKE THE VINAIGRETTE: Working directly over a small bowl, grate the zest from the orange with the Microplane. Cut the orange in half and squeeze the juice into the grated zest. Add the shallot, Dijon mustard, honey, salaam and pepper. Whisk in the vinegar and then slowly whisk in the olive oil until well blended. Taste and adjusting seasoning as preferred.

*The vinaigrette can be made up to 1 week in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Bring back to room tempter and rewhisk to combine the ingredients before using.

5. Arrange the arugula in a large, shallow bowl. In a medium bowl, toss the beets with 2 to 3 tbsp of the vinaigrette, coating them evenly. Top the arugula with the beets, orange slices, walnuts, and dollops of the goat cheese. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
