Cotton-candy bonsai tree at The Tree Cafe & ICE NY For Sopanut Sopochana, food should taste and look good.The owner of Eathai, the Boca Raton resident teamed up with fellow restauranteur Chansone Chanhthamaly (of Sushi Yama in Boynton Beach) to open The Tree Cafe & ICE NY, a spot for the Instagram-crazed and food-obsessed alike.Co-owners Sopanut “So” Sopochana and Chansone “Sonya” Chanhthamaly“I’m not just serving dessert, I’m serving art,” Sopochana said.And taking a look at the menu, he really does. One of the most photogenic items is the Bonsai Cake (pictured above)—a bowl of chocolate mousse, raspberry preserve, chocolate cake, and green tea crumbles topped with a chocolate “trunk” and cotton candy foliage. However, my favorite was the Mango Toast, an artfully sliced mango shaped into a juicy flower atop a piece of toasted, yet soft, bread drizzled in a mango puree. It’s served alongside a creamy mango ice cream and whipped cream.Sopochana tried three different bakeries before finding the perfect bread for his toast at a Jewish deli.Mango H... https://www.bocamag.com/the-tree-cafe-ice-ny/
Friendship Through FlowersTuesday, August 14, 2018
Japanese art and then leading activities like kabuki dance and the Japanese tea ceremony. Today, however, she's most likely to be found teaching ikebana at either the Morikami or the Boca Raton Museum Art School.
"Ikebana is really three-dimensional flower sculpture," she explains. "It's not just putting flowers into a vase."
Today, she is the coordinator of the Eastern Branch of the Sogetsu School, a contemporary branch of ikebana, which she founded here in 1969 - 23 years after it was founded in Tokyo. When Mihori decided to teach sogetsu, she returned to Japan to study and attain the highest leadership rank, riji. Sogetsu differs dramatically from other schools of ikebana in that it's more flexible and reflective of a contemporary lifestyle.
"Sogetsu emphasizes creativity and originality," Mihori explains, adding that the name combines the Japanese words for "grass" and "moon." "That combination means that sogetsu is not only for Japanese people but for people anywhere."
When Mihori came to the United States in the 1950s, her husband was a graduate student at the University of Miami. The couple soon moved to Delray Beach, where they raised three children: Warren, James Jr. and Charlotte (Kasumi). In 2012, Mihori received the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver, from the emperor of Japan for spreading an understanding of Japanese culture in the U.S. Today, she continues this mission, primarily through ikebana.
"Flowers don't need a language," she says. "Everyone loves flowers. I enjoy creating beauty and hope we can use that beauty to create a world of friendship and peace." O

How Much Does a Wedding Cost on Average?Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Geography matters, too. Getting married in New Mexico only costs, on average, $17,000 according to The Knot. But if you get married in New York City (Manhattan), expect to pay around $76,944. Your head-count matters regardless of budget. The cost of a larger wedding, with 100 people or more, is significantly more than that of an intimate wedding. According to the website CostofWedding.com, 50% of couples keep their wedding costs below $15,000 by opting for an intimate wedding. Yet invite 100 or more guests for a larger wedding, and you're looking at costs totaling twice as much (or more, if you're getting hitched in a big city like San Francisco or New York City). Traditional Wedding Cost Splits Wedding traditions, at least from a financial point of view, haven't changed much over the years. Exhibit "A" is having the bride's family pay the most for the wedding. According to The Knot, the bride's family pays 45% of all wedding costs. Right behind the bride's mom and dad are the actual newlyweds, who contribute 41% of wedding costs. The groom's family pitches in, too, paying 13% of total wedding costs. While traditions remain strong, figuring out who pays for a wedding can be somewhat complicated, given that so many people are getting married (and remarried) later in life. Historically, here's a list of who pays for what in a traditional wedding. It's an important piece of knowledge, considering that you'll need to set up a wedding budget beforehand, and you'll want to know who's paying for individual wedding costs. What the Bride's family traditionally pays for: The reception, complete with drinks, food, music and a wedding cake The wedding ceremony, including flowers and any special decorations The bride's wedding gown The photographer and videographer Limousine or special transportation to the wedding and reception What the Groom's family traditionally pays for: The wedding rehearsal dinner Wedding gifts for the bride and groom What the Bride traditionally pays for: The wedding ring for the groom Any wedding gift for the groom The bride's hairstyling and make-up Wedding gifts for her bridesmaids What the Groom traditionally pays for: The bride and groom's marriage license The bride's engagement ring The honeymoon Any wedding gift for his groomsme... https://www.thestreet.com/personal-finance/education/how-much-does-wedding-cost-14693474
