We just can’t seem to get enough caffeine and we just love the taste of coffee. So when we discovered Heritage Distillery Coffee Vodka, we instantly fell in love. One of their classic cocktails and drink recipes is their Harbor Coffee Cocktail found here.

The recipe is so simple and utterly delicious. It’s perfect for a weekend brunch get together on a hot summer day.

Ombre Teal Backdrop

We love using and exploiting the principles of design, especially Repetition, Rhythm, and Pattern. In our most recent backdrop we explored these principles and created this lovely, ombre teal design.

Repetition In art, repetition is the recurrence of a particular line, pattern, shape or other visual element in a single work or a series of works. It is often used to establish authority or meaning for a particular element.

Each individual diamond was hand painted, hole punched, and strung up into a grid system. We used a total of 203 diamonds (…but we painted a bit over our target number. Better safe with extras, a lot of extras!) Although there are various lengths and shades of teal, the consist shape helped create this simple, yet intricate backdrop. Up-close our backdrop can look like there are a lot of little pieces, a lot of noise, but when you step back and place people or props in front of it, the backdrop creates a beautiful color palette to place things against. Like bowls full of ice cream, for that detail shot!

Love this backdrop? We, ENLY, custom create them for weddings, parties, dinners, and what ever else you can think of. Shoot us a message if you want to learn more!

Gin + Honey Cocktail

ENLY Event Design | Bee's KneesENLY Event Design | Bee's Knees ENLY Event Design | Bee's Knees

Recipe: 2 oz. of gin (Hendrick’s) / .75 oz. of honey / 1/2 of a lemon

Fill shaker with gin, honey, and lemon. Stir first to mix ingredients. Shake to chill. Strain over glass full of ice. Sip and enjoy!

ENLY Event Design | Bee's Knees

This “great for brunch” cocktail is my take on the simple Bee’s Knees drink. Reducing the honey reveals the flavorful, floral gin – especially in the Hendricks gin. I went super local, so to speak, and just bought honey from next door at Trader Joe’s, but I can only assume this drink gets better with fresh honey or locally made with various flavors and rich-nesses.
