Spring Has Sprung!

CONTRIBUTING WRITERS

Stephanie Hasbrouck, Jane Krzysiak

DO YOU HEAR THAT? It’s the sound of nature springing to life after a long winter’s nap. Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and children are playing outside as the weather gets warmer and the days grow longer. This month at Cross Timbers Lifestyle we’ll look at ways to “go green” in honor of Earth Day on April 22. The Jaguar I-PACE is an impressively stylish way to do that, and for a limited time, special incentives are available here in Texas to pursue your dream of being eco-friendly on the roads. Meanwhile, visions become treasures as Marcus art students express themselves and “play” with the elemental feel of mud at the potter’s wheel. Remarkable! We think the warmer days are the perfect reason to gather and celebrate life together.  Head over to The Tavern at Lakeside for a “Cheers-like” friendly atmosphere, a perfect patio and a chef-driven menu that includes my personal favorite: the Cowboy Brisket Grilled Cheese.

CORPORATE TEAM CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER Steven Schowengerdt CHIEF SALES OFFICER Matthew Perry

“April Showers” provides a look at timeless but also innovative ways to host a baby shower, while “Spring Soiree” inspires us to plan a fancy or casual get-together to commune with our “pack.” It’s April, and rain or shine, rebirth is in the air! Happy spring!

DRIVER’S NOTEBOOK

Jaguar I-PACE

Cross Timbers Lifestyle | April 2019


THE NEW JAGUAR I-PACE PROVES THAT BEING ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS AND HAVING AN IMPECCABLE SENSE OF STYLE ARE NOT MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE QUALITIES. With powerful instant torque, superior technological advances and a rapid charger, the I-PACE is outpacing its competition. Now is the perfect time to purchase eco-friendly vehicles like the I-PACE because the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has reinstated its Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Purchase or Lease Incentive Program to offer as much as $2,500 in rebate incentives statewide to those who purchase or lease an eligible light-duty electric vehicle powered by electric drive (plug-in or plug-in hybrid). The program ends May 31. Rebates are issued on a first-come, first-served basis, pending availability of funds. In addition, Denton Municipal Electric (DME) is offering a rebate of $300 for the purchase of an electric vehicle. Rebate applicants must agree to charge during the off-peak hours of 10 p.m. to

With instant torque and all-wheeldrive traction, the pure Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) accelerates like a sports car reaching 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. Though the I-PACE has a compact footprint, it boasts exceptional space within with five full seats, innovative storage and a substantial rear cargo space of more than 25.3 cubic feet The I-PACE offers technological advances inferior to none. The Touch Pro Duo Infotainment system makes it easy to control all of the car’s technologies with two touch screens. Each I-PACE has 4G Wi-Fi capability and smart settings, identifying each driver using their key and phone.

Perhaps one of the most innovative features of the I-PACE is the optional Head-Up Display, which presents key vehicle data, such as speed and navigation, on the windshield

spring soiree

CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY OF THE SEASON ARTICLE JANE KRZYSIAK | PHOTOGRAPHY ROBERT RAY PHOTOGRAPHY

18

Cross Timbers Lifestyle | April 2019


Spring is in the air. It’s time to celebrate with family and friends by hosting an indoor-outdoor garden party. Let the season take center stage by creating an environment that highlights springtime for all the senses. Decorate with sprays of fresh flowers throughout the space, or choose succulents or colorful cacti for a different twist. Diffuse delicate floral or herbal essential oils such as lavender or petitgrain. Music often is overlooked but adds a wonderful dimension to the evening. Create a festive or relaxing playlist, or choose live music. Hire a student or local artist—someone tickling the ivories or an acoustic guitarist creates a special atmosphere. Open patio doors and encourage guests to flow in and out. Be sure to create appetizer buffets and bar stations both inside and outside. And don’t forget to stream the music outside, as well. Take care to have seating that is inviting: colorful cushions can be added and chairs rearranged to encourage guests to linger and visit. If hosting a dinner party, place several small floral arrangements down the length of the table instead of one large centerpiece so guests can mingle more easily. When the night is over, give the small arrangements to your guests as lovely parting gifts.  And, if you are hosting a larger, more casual gathering, small favors are still appreciated. It can be quirky or cute—perhaps a sweet succulent wrapped in burlap for their kitchen window sill, fresh herbs, chocolates or funny quotes and notepads.    Serve foods and drinks that showcase the spring. Incorporate fruits and vegetables that are in season, such as berries, melons, cucumbers, onions and tomatoes. At least one amazing focal point for food is recommended, according to Duane Price with Priceless Caterings. It should be eye-catching  and appealing, whether a fabulous cheese board or a cascading chips and dips display that incorporates Mexican shrimp shooters and guacamole mini martini setups. Be clever when you think of how to present your food.

SPRING SOIREE

(CON TI N U ED)

Another recommendation that we love from the talented folks at Priceless Caterings is that cocktail parties or dinner events should have a signature cocktail. It can be Champagne and strawberries or a refreshing cocktail that celebrates the season such as Priceless Caterings’ Blackberry Spring.  It’s another way to greet your guests and take the party up a notch. To round out the bar options, keep it simple. Offer a small selection of beer and wine and of course, provide non-alcoholic beverage options.   There are many ways to DIY and host a wonderful event. Pinterest is full of ideas and hilarious fails, for that matter.  Be sure to do the legwork ahead of time so you can enjoy your own party.  Upon occasion, you may opt to bring in the professionals for a truly special evening—a graduation party, momentous birthday celebration, etc.— that will leave you with more time to mix and mingle. We have many phenomenal resources in our community.  Duane suggests  you  choose someone who will collaborate with you, helping you realize your vision while employing their practical skill set and creativity. You can pick and choose areas where you want to ramp up the wow factor. Regardless, keeping it light, informal and fun is key. Now it’s time to pick a date and plan the fun!

N G WHEN MARCUS HIGH SCHOOL RECENTLY POSTED A PHOTOGRAPH OF PAIGE REYBURN’S STUDENTS’ POTTERY CREATIONS ON SOCIAL MEDIA, IT GARNERED MUCH ATTENTION. “These kids are amazing,” one person wrote. “Wonderful! Do they have a show and sell?” another wrote. “Beautiful!” Though it is obvious the community is quite proud of its young artists, no one could be prouder than Paige herself. “This truly is my dream job. I enjoy watching these students’ excitement and growth as their skills develop. We have such a good time working and producing, experimenting and getting to know each other every day. I feel very lucky,” she says.  “I’m so impressed with a number of my advanced students who have become unbelievable production potters. These students have mastered the wheel, making multiple bowls, vases, mugs, teapots and plates.” Paige says many of her students’ parents often request they make certain pieces. “A boy who is in his second semester in here makes pasta bowls and small condiment bowls for his mom,” she says. “Another girl has made so many mugs, she is giving them to her friends and family members.” Paige says her students love to gift their pieces to others. “I always have a lot of students making birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day presents and graduation gifts. As soon as I unload a glaze kiln, the students all grab their things and whisk them away, sometimes before I even get a chance to admire them.” Paige teaches 27 students in her Advanced Ceramics class and 29 in her Art 2 class. She says the students come to her with limited exposure to ceramic art. “No background in pottery or ceramics is necessary. We start from scratch with all the basic techniques like pinch, slab and coil, which are all hand-building methods,” she says. “After the Art 2 students complete a project for each, they can move on to the wheel.”

Paige inspires her students by showing them how to create instead of just telling them. “I sometimes sit at the potter’s wheel if I have a chance during class and whip out four or five bowls in just a few minutes. I show them how it’s important to know when to stop touching

the clay and allow time and air to begin drying the clay,” she says. “I tell them, ‘If I can do it, you can do it.’ Practice, following proper technique and the desire to work with clay is all you need.” She says her students pour much time and effort into their art. “It’s not as easy as it looks, and the students get really excited about making their first bowls and cylinders. The beginning students sometimes make a big mess their first try at the wheel and laugh a lot at each other’s attempts. It is an overall very kind and encouraging atmosphere here,” Paige says. “We have fun.” Paige's students offer advice and encouragement to each other on a daily basis. “One of the coolest things that happens in my class would be when I hear and see the students coaching and guiding each other while throwing on the wheel, glazing or working through a problem with their design,” she says. “Watching them discuss solutions, remind each other of the basics and even recognizing a failure makes me proud.” Seeing their hard work come to fruition is extremely rewarding for Paige's students. “When it’s time to unload the kiln, it’s like Christmas morning. Everyone is interested when something comes out looking beautiful,” she says. “They have a great sense of pride in their

NESTLED IN THE STYLISH LAKESIDE COMMUNITY OF FLOWER MOUND, THE TAVERN AT LAKESIDE IS SERVING UP NEIGHBORLY PUB VIBES WITH A GOAL TO NOT BE THE TRENDIEST SPOT IN TOWN—BUT THE FRIENDLIEST. “We liken ourselves to Cheers, where people can come in two to three times a week,” says Tavern co-owner Dave Coussirat. Dave says the Tavern’s budget-friendly, highquality menu and friendly atmosphere have brought many repeat customers. “The majority of our customers during the week are from the Lakeside community,” he says, adding that the Tavern draws patrons from across Flower Mound and beyond on weekends. Contributing to the Tavern’s wide appeal is the restaurant’s impressive bar menu. With 25 draft beers, more than 50 varieties of bourbon and whiskey and a wide selection of wines and craft cocktails, the Tavern has something for everyone. The Tavern also features live music during the week.

01 | Bloom & Grow: Keep it simple yet elevated with a beautiful spring theme. Decorate the venue with bunches of fresh flowers. Roses and, of course, baby’s breath always are good options. 0 2 | Baby Book Drive: Ask guests to bring a book for baby, instead of a card, and write a sweet note inside the cover.

THANK YOU FOR ‘BEEING’ OUR GUEST!

07 08

0 3 | Create a Cravings Buffet: Serve the mom-tobe’s most-craved foods— within reason. No pickles and ice cream, please! 0 4 | Create a “Mom-mosa” Bar: Offer a choice of sparkling apple or pear cider, sparkling water or ginger ale as the base of the mom-mosa and a choice of orange, cranberry or pineapple juice to top it off.

0 5 | Think Petite: In celebration of tiny baby-to-be, serve traditional Southern petit fours instead of a large cake. Remember to send home extras with mother-to-be for

her to freeze and save to celebrate baby’s birthday! 0 6 | Sweet Parting Gifts: Keeping with the spring theme, give small jars of honey to guests as parting gifts, with a note that reads: “Thank you for ‘beeing’ our guest!” 0 7 | Pamper the Momto-Be: Instead of a traditional baby shower, gather friends and family to celebrate at a local spa. 0 8 | Late-Night Diapers: Ask guests to write a funny or heartwarming note on a diaper with a colorful marker. The new mom and dad will have fun reading notes from friends and family members while changing diapers in the middle of the night. 0 9 | Play a Tasteful Game: Blindfold brave shower-goers and have them each sample three different baby foods and guess what they are. Those who guess correctly win a door prize.
