#THATSWHATSHESAID: ELIZA BLANK, THE SILL
I was first introduced to The Sill shortly after my relocation to NYC, and even in the year and a half that I've been in the know, this genius concept has grown at the pace that other businesses only dream of.
What may read like a reach list of partners and press to some -- Kate Spade, Teen Vogue, Kinfolk and Refinery 29 -- is just a taste of those smart enough to get onboard. And, with nationwide delivery, a sweet shop at 84 Hester, and gorgeous 'gram, it's easier than ever for anyone to get inspired Sill style.
The perfect plants, fail-proof care guidance and clean presentation are practically impossible to pass up. Eliza Blank's passion for what she does is evident, and I am thrilled to have this lady boss give me a peek at what else is on her love list.
Q1: Best gift you received? Who gave it to you?
My wedding Ketubah. Traditionally, the Ketubah is a Jewish marriage contract given to the bride from the groom. My husband and I chose a reform Ketubah that speaks to the commitments we made to each other. The signing of our Ketubah was witnessed by all of our close friends and family, and is also signed by my paternal grandmother and my husband's identical twin brother. It now hangs in our home.
Q2: Best party you attended? Details you won't forget?
My brother's wedding was held in a chateau in Brittany. My sister-in-law was the fashion director for The Knot for several years, so no detail was left out. The venue, the food, the flowers, the party favors - they were all so special. We danced until 4am and the bride changed into at least 4 or 5 different outfits throughout the night. It was spectacular!
Q3: Favorite decor touches for a shindig?
I love good lighting - who doesn't!? The day before my wedding, my husband and I were up on 20' ladders stringing lights throughout our reception hall. In retrospect, it was probably not the best task to do ourselves. Now my parents have the very same lights strung in their back porch, and it always makes me smile.
