SUMMER ENTERTAINING WITH ROGERS DAYTIME KITCHENER!
On Tuesday June 5th, we packed up the car and headed to Rogers Daytime in Kitchener to film two segments on summer entertaining.
Thank you again Charise at Thatch & Fringe for the most amazing, camera ready blow out! We love that we can count on you and your hair expertise to kick off our day of filming!
We filmed with and were interviewed by Natasha McKenty, the In Studio host. Natasha is always so hospitable, so awesome and made us feel right at home!
1st Segment: DECORATE with Fruit!
In the first segment, we show you how to take various vases and fill them with fresh, locally sourced fruit. We demonstrate how to make a simple vase full and eye catching by making it the center of attention by cutting lemons in half or by filling the vase with whole limes or different unique fruits. We also show you how to carve various fruits such as watermelons into vases themselves.
We were so lucky to have Raymond's Flower Shop in Waterloo provide us with some of their gorgeous stems to be shown with the fruit. The bright and bold shades and textures of the fruit made the white floral choices so elegant and stand out beautifully. Alex Di Roberto supplied us with the fruit for the taping. His fruits and vegetables can be found at the Kitchener Market every Saturday morning on the lower level. Not only did the fruit look so vibrant, but we had fun showing Natasha (and all of you at home watching) how to take an everyday, easy to access, simple item and creating something so beautiful out of it!
Check out some of the fun images we captured of Carolina and Natasha during filming!
2nd Segment: Hungry? Thirsty?
In the second segment, we used ideas from our Blog; Summer Entertaining: Food & Drink and showed off a few of our summer favourites! We had fun eats on set such as delicious summer skewers and pitchers of refreshing infused water. Carolina showed off her bar-tending skills and created a few easy summer cocktails. She mixed up a delicious traditional margarita and then showed us how to add additional items, such as jalapenos and blackberries, to change up or intensify the flavour of your drink.
We displayed a stunning white place setting provided by ABC Party Time Rentals in our segment also. We show you how to create an elegant look for a wedding, brunch or dinner party by simply adding a piece of fruit. Any fruit will do as the colours are so rich and can transform any unique vision into a decor dream.
We had a blast filming with Rogers Daytime Kitchener- Thank you so much for having us!
We hope you were able to catch it live! Hopefully we inspired you with an idea or two that you can use at your next summer event!
