Design for the Every Day and the Special Days, With Love

Happy Valentine's Day from LAURA ANN! LAURA ANN first opened for design business on a special day - my mother's birthday (September 21, 2009, founded as LATinNYC)! It is only fitting that LAURA ANN's full time relaunch would fall on another love filled holiday. To mark the occasion and share the love, I whipped up a family favorite, coconut meringues, a special recipe passed down from my Great Grandmother Mary. My Aunt Lisa, and sister, Marie, had made them to rave reviews at the holidays, and I decided it was time to debut them in NYC. I called my Grandmother Barbara, who advised to be sure to beat the egg whites until they stood in peaks. Bagged and tied with a LAURA ANN "xoxo" illustrated valentine, they hit the spot! They made for a colorful splash of color and served as a loving edible favor at each place setting at a Valentine's luncheon. For those who couldn't taste them in person, I shared these images as digital Valentines.

Express your love with the art of a personal touch, on the every day and the special days!
