Holiday Gift Guide logo_A big blizzard of applause for Marielle Solan who took all of these amazing photos, seriously check out her portfolio of talent. Can’t get enough of these lush layouts? We couldn’t have done it without the genius and generosity that is Petals & Roots. Finally we needed a space large enough for us to bring all these gifts and people together, a big shout out to SPACES in LIC. They were incredible hosts.
