Happy New Year from Team TNR

Happy New Year from Team TNR

December is a special month for many of us– the holidays, the end of another year, looking back at what we’ve experienced and achieved, looking forward to plans for the year to come. It also happens to be our birthday month. We’ve turned five! So on this NYE, we’re feeling extra celebratory and maybe even a bit sentimental.

We are so lucky to be in a business where we get to create memorable celebrations for our clients on their most special of days. It’s easy at times to get caught up in the smallest of details, the behind the scenes, the packing and unpacking of u-hauls at 2am, the not-so-glamorous sides of this industry. But in the undercurrent of everything we do is joy and gratitude. Gratitude for the opportunities, the experiences, the incredible people we get to meet and collaborate with each day, and for those of you who follow along on our journey and show us so much love through social media. To each and every one of you– thank you. A huge, warm, joyful, thank you.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year from Team TNR!

Thanksgiving Cocktails from Royal Fig

Thanksgiving Cocktails from Royal Fig and The Nouveau Romantics

If you’re anything like us, you like to save the best for last.  We’ve planned out our dinner menus, tweaked our decor, and given our dogs a pep talk on acceptable Thanksgiving behavior (no turkey thievery allowed!).  Now, for the Thanksgiving cocktails.  Royal Fig provided the delicious Saucy Fig cocktails above for our recent shoot with Brides of Austin and graciously share the recipe below:

Saucy Fig

2 oz. Buorbon (we like Bulleit)

2 oz. Fresh Fig Puree (or store bought fig jam)

2 oz. White Grape Juice

.5 oz. Lemon Juice

2 oz. Still Water

Garnish with Sliced Fresh Figs

Sip and Enjoy!
