ultimate AYA party kitchen.

Monday, July 15, 2013

guess what's happening in Toronto this September?
and guess who wants to go [really badly]?
        ME -------->
unfortunately my farm girl kitchen entry from last year didn't quite make the cut 
but I've been honing my mood board making skills on the off chance AYA Kitchens & Baths would give me a chance at redemption
and guess what?

this year's design challenge had me creating the Ultimate Party Kitchen and nothing screams "KEG STANDS!" like a distillery inspired kitchen, wouldn't you agree? 
Imagine yourself - sporting this tee - comfortably seated [D] around this large clay coloured AYA island [C] with a 'beer pong approved' butcher block counter [E]. Notice how you can keep track of your drink and/or drinking game tally on that industrial paper roll hanging off the exposed brick? And for your visual pleasure the anthracite-hued AYA cabinets [A] are a perfect match to the Kendall Charcoal painted walls. Tell me, who doesn't love a grey washed hardwood underfoot? The carefully selected industrial lighting and copper hardware play nicely with the subway tile backsplash and timeless marble countertops. And just because you're drinking wine from a box doesn't mean you ain't sophisticated; take that Michelle Morelan original [B] for example, ever so classy. These surfaces were made to get spilled on - begging for it - so let's loosen the ties, kick off the heels and get the Mumford & Sons a pumping!

Bottoms Up Berry Lemonade for Bloggers*
1. muddle blueberries in a shaker
2. add absolut berri acai vodka, some fresh lime juice, simple syrup & ice cubes
3. shake and strain into a glass
4. top with chilled champagne and garnish with this straw from Confetti & Sparkle 
5. elegantly chug sip
* recipe found here

if you want to help make my T-dot dreams a reality maybe let AYA and BlogPodium know in the comment section below that I, Sara the party animal Knol, am their gal. I promise I'll try to get Sarah Richardson to do something c-c-c-crazy if I attend. Once upon a time I convinced Ben Affleck to serenade me with "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and Mr. Lord of the Dance Flatley may or may not have taught me the bicycle jump. Speaking of party animals, those Irish dancers are wiLd ;)

I KNOW! I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but meeting all y'all would be the cream cheese icing on my carrot cake.
