A season is often as sweet as its celebrations, and this spring we’ve got a domino issue worth toasting to. Together with our spring covergirl Jenni Kayne, we threw an intimate dinner on New York’s Lower East Side at Dimes, a cozy corner in the local foodie scene focusing on seasonal, veggie-forward dishes and cocktails with delectably fun twists. (Wheatgrass margarita, anyone)?
What fun it was to meet Jenni’s bi-coastal friends — and reconnect with a few of our own — over a beautiful dinner. And great to hear how positive the response has been to our spring cover!— BETH BRENNER, CRO, domino
Atop the tables were floral arrangements perfectly marrying spring’s playful nature, and the elegance of an intimate dinner gathering of our friends. Nicolette Camille picked poppies, flowering branches and delicate blooms in sculptural glass vases to compliment Dimes’ paired down and pretty interior. Read on for images of the inspired evening.
The evening was so much fun! I think the dinner was really a reflection of our two brand aesthetics coming together. The light playful colors of Dimes’ juxtaposed with natural linen napkins and white flowers felt so cohesive.— JENNI KAYNE
We are so excited about the Spring issue and love having Jenni and her team in New York to celebrate. Dimes was the perfect spot – it’s relaxed, healthy, and the space is beautiful. I could eat here every day and be very happy!— JESSICA ROMM, editorial director, domino
The issue was a breath of fresh air. I love the focus on new designers and creatives. I feel passionately about supporting the creative community and that’s exactly what domino does.— JENNI KAYNE
