Ready to Run Youth Run NOLA By Catherine Freeman

The month of January elicits thoughts of new beginnings, resolutions and fresh starts. Often those resolutions of change involve exercise, and rightly so as we tend to indulge a bit more than normal during the holidays! While our own personal goals set in January may wane as the year progresses, one local organization strives to make healthy living through running a way of life every year for New Orleans’ low-income youth. In 2010, five St. Bernard school teachers were inspired to start a grass roots running club with 40 children from their respective schools. None of the teachers had competitive running backgrounds, but all enjoyed the sport and believed it could be accessible to all children, needed little equipment other than proper running shoes and could provide unlimited positive benefits. And they were right. That same year, the Young Leadership Council adopted the program as one of their signature projects by providing seed funding and an extensive volunteer base. Focusing on fifth through 12th graders, Youth Run NOLA now partners with 32 schools in Orleans, Jefferson and St. Bernard Parishes. Runners train twice weekly and participate monthly in city wide races of 5K, 10K and half marathons including the Crescent City Classic and Rock N’ Roll Half Marathon. “This past year being in Youth Run NOLA, I’ve accomplished a lot. I ran my first half marathon with my dad, and I’ve become more of an athlete because of it,” said Miles, age 11. From its first steps, the program boasts an impressive 800-plus youth involved and last year logged an incredible 8,329 miles run. Many youth in our region – and especially those in lower-income communities – lack consistent exposure and access to healthy

14 st. charles Avenue january 2017

options in their daily lives. A staggering 21 percent of children ages 10-17 living in Louisiana are obese and only 34 percent of youth 6-17 participate in regular vigorous physical activity, which can lead to long-term physical and mental health problems.Youth Run NOLA aims to eradicate this deficit through running but also through healthy relationships participants develop with the supportive peer network and positive role models of coaches and volunteers. “I wanted to reach communities that didn’t have the opportunity to lace up,” says board member Elly Lane. “Their coaching power was infectious and I was hooked and determined to make this program work.” Strong relationships built between the diverse group of volunteers and youth runners happen because they experience challenges and rewards together – running side-by-side. The whole family also has an opportunity to become involved through the Youth Run NOLA Family Council by participating with administrative support and cheering sections at races. Joy and pride from meeting goals occur naturally at Youth Run NOLA, but additional outcomes are tracked through analysis of

physical activity hours, time spent with supportive mentors and youth surveys conducted at the start and finish of each year. Work has begun on a pilot program with a local hospital to try monitoring each runner’s health statistics for medical data on the physical benefits. Executive Director Denali Lander says, “I truly believe running (and walking and jogging) can help unify our community ... everyone can be a runner and everyone can belong to the Youth Run NOLA family.” Youth Run NOLA envisions replicating the program throughout New Orleans with the goal to have every child know of the program – an exciting concept to make healthy living through running a way of life. n

A little more … Become a volunteer or walking/running buddy at an upcoming race, and don’t miss the 504K Youth Run NOLA Fundraiser sponsored by St. Thomas Health Community Health March 18, 2017. For more information call 256-5523 or visit YouthRunNola.org

Enliven Imagination Magna-Tiles are more than building blocks By CeCe Colhoun

I find myself always having a parenting book stashed away, and in my current arsenal is How to Raise an Adult by Julie LythcottHaims. As I read through the undeniable statistics of the over-involved – sometimes referred to as a “helicopter parent” – it led me to reflect on the words that a very wise woman in the early months of my first pregnancy once told me: “Don’t be the entertainment center to your children.” I think what she meant was, “Let kids be kids, like in the good ol’ days.” Allow them to explore and roam free (within safe confines of course), but most importantly allow them to feel comfortable simply playing with simple toys on the floor, using their imagination to build and create tiny worlds of fantasy. This leads me to introduce you, if you haven’t already discovered them, to the magic of Magna-Tiles. These small square and triangular tiles, each magnetized so they stick together, aid in the building some of the largest towers and intense mazes of a young child’s imagination. These tiles are a perfect marriage of new-age and old-school; they’re simple building blocks made of plastic in bright colors. I have witnessed my own two boys, ages 4 and 6, along with many of their friends, sit on the ground and build and create some seriously impressive landscapes for hours at a time. Price is a drawback for these tiles, and the starter kit only comes with 48 pieces (not enough in my opinion for the elaborate creations to which I am referring). The bonus is that you can add to their collections slowly over time for birthdays or anything celebratory. Ask grandparents, special friends and family to gift them as well. The more the merrier with the magna-tiles.

16 st. charles Avenue january 2017

Part of the fun is the demolition, as the tiles come crashing down when it’s time for clean-up. And you can keep them neatly stored in one big basket! The magic of these tiles reveals itself to parents in stressful times, such as during the holidays or when you need to get things done around the home and you don’t have time to entertain your children. Besides, they’re guilt-free because they’re a much better solution than plopping them in front of brain-cell-zapping TVs and iPads. These tiles stretch their brains and enliven their imaginations. In a quote from Psychology Today, “Many brilliant individuals – from Einstein to Mozart – credit their imagination as the source of their creativity and genius. Einstein often compared his creative process to that of poets and musicians, describing his insights as ‘a sudden rapture.’ He famously said:

‘When I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come close to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.’” Watching your own little Einstein’s imaginations come to life, what could be sweeter? n

Just the Facts Magna-Tiles Magnetic building tiles for children 3 and older “designed to hold a child’s interest and attention, build critical development skills and promote imaginative play and creativity.” Sets available in 32-, 48-, 52- and 100-piece sets in a variety of colors, in addition to “special items.” Magna-Tiles are available for local purchase at Magic Box Toys (5508 Magazine St., 899-0117) or online at MagnaTiles. com (which has a store locator for other local locations) and Amazon.com.

Inside Out Trends and products for 2017 By Lorin Gaudin

On the heels of December’s decadence, and because I always make a resolution (don’t ask if I keep it), I’m declaring 2017 the year to tackle beautiful skin from the inside out. Inspired by the newly released book Eat Beautiful: Food and Recipes to Nourish Your Skin from the Inside Out, by Wendy Rowe, each month, in addition to the latest information on cosmetics, skincare and bath, I’ll feature a skin-nourishing food or ingredient and tip to a local restaurant dish with the month’s skinnourishing food. Eating for Beauty

It is no great secret that caring for your body by eating fresh, whole foods is the key to achieving inner glow. By nature, specific foods and ingredients feed your skin vitamins and nutrients that can stimulate collagen production for firmer skin, fight free radicals, help repair, act as anti-inflammatories or offer anti-aging properties. There are a handful of books on the market, all dedicated to achieving beautiful skin nutritionally. Check out these titles: Eat Pretty: Nutrition for Beauty Inside and Out, by Jolene Hart (also check out the “Eat Pretty” guided journal to make a practice of beauty nutrition tips and track progress) Radical Beauty: How to Transform Yourself From the Inside Out, by Deepak Chopra The Moon Juice Cookbook, by Amanda Chantal Bacon Spinach

Loaded with Vitamins A, C, E and K, spinach is said to help reduce inflammation, heal skin and prevent acne. Loaded with antioxidants that destroy free radicals, spinach is also said to assist in reducing the signs of aging. The vitamin K and folate in Spinach are thought to improve the complexion, evening out tone and increasing skin’s radiance.

Eat Your Spinach

For Now

The Saag at Taj Mahal Restaurant is a staple of the Indian cuisine canon. Made with spinach and other dark leafy greens, turmeric, cumin seed, chiles and garlic, it’s a delicious vegetarian main or side. Prefer raw spinach? Check out the Sweet Spinach Salad at Theo’s Pizza.

I am a product junkie. I have managed to work my way through a tube of Mac’s new Liptensity Lipstick in Smoked Almond; hit pan on two colors in the Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette; am head over heels for Tom Ford Eye Defining Liquid Liner Pen; and have gone fragrance freaky for D.S. & Durga’s fig-heavy “Debaser,” and Maison Margiela’s cozy chestnut and smoky wood “By the Fireplace.” n

Beauty Trends for Winter 2016/ Spring 2017

While perfecting that cat-eye liner, go graphic with double lines, angles and other artsy flare. Dark lips (Gothic and classic red), smoky eyes, clumpy lashes, glossy lips and blue eyeshadow were all over Fashion Week runways. For Spring, it’s all about no makeup makeup, with some artists and designers completely foregoing foundation, while amping up the glow via highlighters, glossy lids and lips. Lashes play a big role, but gone are the clumps and fringe, replaced by minimal, natural looks, and for paler girls, no mascara at all. Pastel eye makeup is another big show for Spring and even Summer.

Party Perfect Chef Maggie Scales, Executive Pastry Chef for the Link Restaurant Group, shares their Individual King Cake recipe

Individual King Cake Ingredients

Directions

Sweet Dough

SWEET DOUGH In a small saucepot, melt

4¼ cups all-purpose flour ⅓ cup granulated sugar ¼ teaspoon salt ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter ¾ cup milk ¼ cup water ¼ cup cream cheese 3 egg yolks 2¼ teaspoon yeast

the butter and set aside. Allow to cool. Combine flour, salt and sugar in small bowl and set aside.

Cinnamon Filling

1 cup, packed light brown sugar 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, room temp King Cake Icing

2½ cups powdered sugar 4 Tablespoons milk 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine the cooled butter, milk, water, cream cheese and yolk in a stand mixer with the paddle for 5 min on low speed. With the mixer off, add yeast and the dry mixed ingredients, and mix on low speed for 2 minutes. (Dough should begin to cling to the paddle.) Continue to mix in the stand mixer with the paddle on medium speed for 2 min. After 2 minutes, scrape down the bowl. Turn the mixer up to high speed and mix until dough is strong, shiny and clings to the paddle (about 5 minutes). Place the dough in a bowl sprayed with oil spray and wrap well with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours. To prepare King Cakes, preheat oven to 350F. Roll the dough into a rectangle about ¹⁄4-inch thick. Apply your filling liberally (traditional recipe below). Starting with the long edge facing you, roll up the rectangle into a long rope, pinching the dough gently to keep it rolled up. Bring the dough together into a circle, tucking one end into the other and pinching the edges together. Place the ring onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and cover with a dish towel. Allow to rise in a warm spot in the kitchen, about 80F. This may take up to 2 or 3 hours depending on the temperature. The King Cake will double in size. Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes until light golden in color. Remove from oven and allow to cool at room temperature. Apply icing, festive sanding sugars and serve (see below).

Remedies For the unbearable heaviness of being Jyl Benson

By the time the holidays ground to a close I had cooked and consumed so much dark roux that I feel certain the blood moving through my veins has taken on the viscosity of our region’s traditional culinary thickener. I am over all manner of gumbos, gravies and étouffée, as well as anything resembling fried turkey, roast beef, oyster dressing, gratins, casseroles and dessert. Ugh. I suspect I have plenty of company. With this in mind, I set out on an exploration of light, flavorful dishes to replace my months-long steady diet of goo. My friend, Larry Nguyen, general manager of Toups South, indisputably a temple of all foods robust, steered me toward the prefect light lunch consisting of two dishes from the restaurant’s small plates menu: a serving of tiny, fresh, delicately seasoned Covey Rise Farms vegetables well as a dish of marinated Gulf Snapper crudo finished with a scant amount of puréed butternut squash, a scattering of pumpkin seeds and a faint drizzle of chili oil. Both dishes were as visually appealing as they were flavorful, and they let me feeling virtuous and satisfied. It is easy to dine guiltlessly at Korea House in Metairie where the flavors are intense, the portions gigantic and the prices

are low. Every dish you order will come with an array of eight to 12 small side dishes that may include kim chi, shredded Dikon radish, cucumber kim chi, braised Dikon, vinegary bean sprouts and pickled cucumbers. Though there are many light dishes to choose from, my favorites include Dukboki (stir-fried seasoned rice cake and vegetables in a spicy sauce) Bibim Nangmyun (buckwheat noodles, sliced cucumber and sliced pork in a spicy sauce) and Jajangmyun (noodles, sliced cucumber in a black bean sauce). Recently renovated into a chic cocktail space, La Thai Uptown also boasts a number of dishes on the menu that are Ochsner Health System approved, including chicken sate, blackened Ahi tuna, tom kar gai (a coconut milk-based soup with lemongrass, lime and chicken) and spicy beef.

Try This Annunciation Restaurant in the Warehouse District recently unveiled a newly renovated bar and bar program and appointed Jacob Cureton to the position of Executive Chef. Cureton has just introduced a soulful, creative menu of modern Creole and Southerninspired dishes. Starters are made for sharing and include baked oysters with Chapapeela Farms house made boudin and a brown butter hollandaise; baked jumbo lump crab cakes with lemon beurre blanc; multicolored beets with pecans, goat cheese and satsuma, served with yellow and pink beet purée; and cold smoked fried chicken and dumplings. Entrée options include Gulf drum with Covey Rise Farms sweet potatoes and yams, sautéed kale and a moutarde beurre blanc; Chappapeela Farms pork osso buco with charred corn, cheese grits and local peppers; sweet corn and kale risotto with jumbo lump crab, smoked tomato vinaigrette and herb oil; and seared yellowfin tuna with Creole fried black rice, sweet potato habanero sauce and the chef’s signature Steel Sauce (half Steen’s cane gastrique and half eel sauce). Sunday Brunch at Annunciation features live entertainment, specialty cocktails and $5 Bloody Marys and Mimosas. Menu standouts include Louisiana berry waffles with vanilla crème and Steen’s blended syrup; New York strip steak with poached eggs and pommes frites; and both oyster dressing Benedict and boudin Benedict.

change up the menu every day, but there are always selections of pillowy dumplings, wings (not all of them are so virtuous so watch out), brothy bowls of ramen and a number of fresh seafood applications. The house’s special made-to-order fruit spritzers come in flavors such as green apple, and they’re the perfect accompaniment to what’s on the plate. n

For the third consecutive year of “Wine, Dine & Design,” St. Charles Avenue and parent company Renaissance Publishing LLC, together with Presenting Sponsor Bryan Subaru, proudly presented a benefit for Bastion Veterans Housing Development, an organization that’s building an intentionally designed neighborhood in New Orleans for returning warriors with lifelong rehabilitative needs and families. Elizabeth and Peyton Bush and Michele and Lamar Villere chaired the event. Local designers and retailers creatively transformed 26 tables into lavish and whimsical works of art, sparing no design detail to create an entirely unparalleled dining experience and theme at each tablescape. The preview cocktail party on Wednesday, October 12, allowed nearly 250 guests a sneak peek at the intricate and ornate tablescapes while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres by the Audubon Tea Room Culinary Team and live music. A live auction featured packages such as a weekend stay in Napa Valley, a staycation in the Ace Hotel and more. The luncheon took place the following day, and included hors d’oeuvres to start, followed by a three-course seated lunch with wine pairings. Guests learned more about Bastion while artist Alex Harvie created a live painting of the event, which auctioned for an additional $4,500. There was also an auction of a homestay in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and three handmade hats from RDS Concepts for Bastion. As the luncheon ended, an anonymous "angel" offered to match the proceeds from both events, bringing the total raised to more than $174,000. n

A Nod to French Heritage

The gardens of Pitot House set the stage for Louisiana Landmarks Society’s major fundraiser. By Shelby Simon

The Pitot House’s annual “Féte du Jardin” was held both to raise awareness of Louisiana Landmarks Society’s decades of success in saving the city’s landmarks and to ensure the continuance of its advocacy activities and the maintenance of the Pitot House. This year, Consul General de France Gregor Trumel and Madame Ingrid Trumel served as honorary chairs. Margot Hammond served as Event Chair with Elizabeth Landis, Co-Chair. Guests enjoyed touring the Pitot House, sitting on its gallery overlooking Bayou St. John and mingling in its lush parterre garden. Decorations featured white iris arranged as seen in nature with oak branches, moss and monarch butterflies (made from feathers) that populate the Pitot House’s garden throughout spring and summer. The iris was selected in homage to Consul General and Madame Trumel, as it’s France’s national flower. Guests enjoyed libations by Sazerac Rye and a variety of food offerings donated by Brown Butter, Cassidy Lewis, Educated Palate, Mandina’s, Mother’s, Ralph’s on the Park, Sucré and Ye Olde College Inn. The Johnny Parker Quartet provided musical entertainment.

Formerly known as GIFTED Nurses, the recently expanded GIFTED Healthcare also offers in-home care for those who choose to age in place and stay in the home. Owned by nurses, the company employs skilled clinicians of all certifications for patients in homes, hospitals, and other healthcare

institutions, as well as accompaniment during travels. “We ensure that each nurse has the professional experience, education and integrity required for a patient’s needs. Our staff carefully match caregivers to patients and their families based both on the needs and personality of the patient,” says Mullady Voelker, President of Patient Care Services at GIFTED Healthcare. Beyond nursing care, GIFTED Healthcare also offers sitters and companion care.

“We provide options, depending on the level of care the individual needs – sitters can provide help with daily activities, while Registered Nurses help patients who need a high level of care and want to remain in the home.” says Voelker. These companions and sitters can assist with bathing and dressing, walking and exercise, medication reminders, transportation, meal planning and numerous other activities.

fabulous fountain flanked with by a screen of Japanese blueberry and a table with a variety of succulents in the center, complete with comfortable chairs and cushions. Along another wall, there’s a long sofa with striped accent pillows creating another conversation area. At night, lighting adds a dramatic effect! Patricia and Vernon Brinson entertain in their garden all year long and they’ve created several rooms that create different experiences for guests. One is by the pool looking back at the house with a colorful wild rose climbing dramatically on their outdoor room. The

other is right outside of their dining room, which has doors that open out into the area. Focal points here are fabulous antique olive jars that Patricia got at Antiques de Provence. Tables are set up for a cocktail buffet with my single Celebration vases filled with lilies, roses and delphinium. Patricia had the olive jars planted with fruit trees and planted white snapdragons in her parterre garden. I hope you’ll start to look at your garden in a new way! There are so many great local landscape companies that can help you! n

Treen – Morrison By Mirella Cameran

Some things are worth waiting for. Allison “Alli” Elizabeth Treen and Millard Bland Morrison Jr. met each other in high school, but it wasn’t until six years later, after seeing each other over the holiday season in 2012, that Millard called to ask Alli to go to the movies. Fast forward three years to when Millard asked Alli, his now girlfriend, to share with him the IberiaBank Christmas Party Raffle prize he said he had won, which was dinner on Friday, December 18, at Commander’s Palace. There was no such prize, but after a wonderful dinner in the Garden Room, Millard asked Alli to marry him. Millard had popped the question at the same time, on the same night, that his parents had gotten engaged 30 years earlier. Millard also presented Alli with his great-grandmother’s engagement ring from the 1930s. After champagne and dessert, the newly engaged couple celebrated with their immediate families who were waiting in the bar downstairs. The party continued when Alli opened the door to Millard’s parents’ house, to find their best friends waiting to celebrate. The wedding weekend began with a wonderful rehearsal dinner at Arnaud’s, where Millard’s younger sister, Bailey, works. The next day, Saturday, October 8, 2016, Millard and Alli were married at the Fountain of Hygeia in Audubon Zoo. The couple and their guests then celebrated at the reception, the first to be held completely outdoors in the field with its canopy of old oaks. Alli honored her late grandfather, Governor Dave Treen, with framed pictures of him at every bar and a description of the old fashioned cocktails he used to craft. Guests also enjoyed a dinner catered by Audubon Institute Catering that included a raw oyster bar and shucker. The couple’s celebration included many personal touches. Alli’s mother made a beautiful handkerchief with pieces from her own wedding dress and Alli’s grandmothers’ wedding dresses, which Alli attached to her bouquet. 86 st. charles Avenue january 2017

Millard wore a watch he had been awarded at his family’s camp and suspenders that had belonged to his late grandfather, Gray Morrison. The couple’s recessional song was as a string version of “Our Song,” which Alli had given to Millard on a CD back in high school. Later on, Alli and Millard’s fathers joined the band, which got the crowd rocking!

The happy couple honeymooned in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for five nights and Puerto Vallarta for three nights. They now live in their new home in Mid-City. Millard is a Relationship Manager at IberiaBank and Alli is a Graphic Designer at Line 58 Branding & Web Design. n

Rising Foundations Kelly Orians, Executive Director; Derrick Perique, Program Coordinator; and Henry James, Small Business Owner & General Contractor By Lindsay Mack

Released from Angola after serving almost 30 years on a false conviction, Calvin Duncan faced a new obstacle: securing employment. Like many persons released from incarceration, Duncan found few traditional employers willing to hire a former inmate. Duncan teamed up with UCLA School of Law graduate Kelly Orians to form Rising Foundations and address this major issue by helping previously incarcerated individuals secure financial stability. To learn more, I spoke with current executive director Kelly Orians, program coordinator Derrick Perique and small business owner Henry James. (Duncan is still involved as a board member.) About

88 st. charles Avenue january 2017

The Businesses

At this time Rising Foundations has helped launch electrical, cleaning, mobile car detailing, optical, landscaping and auto mechanic businesses, among others. For instance, Derrik Perique learned how to be an optician while at Angola and opened Custom Optical, where he can make manufactured prescription lenses for customers. Likewise, Henry James launched a cleaning and maintenance service, as well as a small electrical business. In addition, the many small business owners from Rising Foundations sometimes work together to

address a problem or find jobs for those who need extra money each month. In this way, Rising Foundations acts as both a business incubator and a networking service to ensure continued success for its clients. n

Get Involved There are many ways to help Rising Foundations support its mission. First, successful business owners from the New Orleans area are welcome to share their knowledge and advice for breaking into various local fields. Next, the organization accepts donations of old cars or blighted properties to refurbish. Lastly, monetary donations are helpful to the organization. In fact, Rising Foundations has a financial services division with Pay It Forward loans – clients can secure a startup loan of $1,000 and then pay it back to the fund for the next small business owner. With this unique lending method, every dollar helps a person in need, and then that person returns cash to the fund for the next person. It forms a cycle of positivity. For more information, email info@risingfoundations.org, or visit RisingFoundations.org or Facebook.com/RisingFoundations.

The Rising Foundations organization provides resources to help formerly incarcerated persons achieve gainful employment, financial stability and affordable housing access. To bypass the issues with traditional employers, Rising Foundations encourages former inmates to start their own businesses.

The organization’s unique small business incubator encourages clients to rely on existing skills (or develop new ones) and become an income-generating entrepreneur. By addressing the barriers to employment that contribute to the cycle of incarceration, the Rising Foundations organization is helping their clients reenter the workforce in a dynamic, powerful way.

On the first day of class, McCall asked why the students were studying history, and most students responded that they were studying history to learn from the past’s mistakes so they don’t happen again. “McCall asked, ‘What will your role be in this story of “It’s important to be our world?

Little Travelers Owners, Charlotte Reiss and Rebecca Norwood By Mirella Cameran

How did you start Little Travelers? Charlotte: After returning from a Mardi Gras vacation, we asked ourselves, with so many families visiting New Orleans, why is it so hard to find baby equipment rentals? So, when our little ones went back to school we threw ourselves into the idea and starting building the business. What has made you successful? Rebecca: Knowing you have good equipment waiting in your home away from home makes traveling with babies much more relaxing and enjoyable. Also, Little Travelers provides complimentary delivery, setup and pickup to make accommodating our youngest visitors as easy as possible. No piece of equipment goes out if we wouldn’t want to use it with our own kids.

92 st. charles Avenue january 2017

Who are your customers? Charlotte: We work with families traveling to New Orleans with young children. Whether visiting family or just wanting to explore a new city, New Orleans provides lots of hidden gems off the beaten path. Tell us something unexpected about the business Rebecca: We were a little surprised at first that we get more calls from dads than moms. Are you working on anything exciting? Charlotte: Yes, we’re always updating our Family Guide with the latest happenings around town so we can let you know about the best places to enjoy New Orleans with kids.

What are your most popular items? Charlotte: Car seats and strollers are the most popular items, closely followed by the Pack ’n Play. These are some of the essentials for babies to get around and sleep safely. We also have toys and more to help with downtime.

Can you give parents a tip on how to use your service? Rebecca: If you can, we encourage placing your order one to two weeks before your trip, but we do accommodate last-minute requests as well.

Sapphire Events Owner, Principal Planner & Designer, Valerie Gernhauser By Mirella Cameran

photo by j effery johnsto n

How did you set up Sapphire Events? I started my business in 2011 when I was nine months pregnant with my first child. I believed New Orleans needed a planner to serve its brides and grooms (and their families) in a solutions-focused, design-driven way and that I was the person to deliver that. So I set out September 2011 to be the best planner and designer in New Orleans, and the rest is history. We have changed the market for the better and raised the bar for client experience and design standards. What makes you unique? My background in the law is definitely what sets me apart from the crowd. I approach each event with an analytical eye and strong business acumen, as well as a refined taste and designer’s vision. I focus on a processdriven design that brings to light each of my clients’ unique personalities. I sketch, I produce, I negotiate contracts and I have a network of connections across the country.

Tell us about some of your favorite events. We are very proud of a wedding last spring at the Old Ursuline Convent. It featured tremendous design elements, over 40 vendors from all over the country and logistics and management skills delivered to a tee. We also had specialty cocktails and food elements for every flavor profile. We have also spent a great deal of time donating to some of our favorite nonprofits this year. Is there anything else you want to share? We are excited to create our first destination events outside the city in 2017.

Music and Lyrics New Orleans music libraries By Seale Paterson

Library on St. Charles Avenue opened in October 1948, it was prepared for a music collection that didn’t yet exist. The mansion, once home to a silent movie star, was purchased by the Latter family and donated to the New Orleans Public Library to serve as a memorial for their son, who had been killed in action in World War II. Adaptations to the home to prepare it for library use included a second floor music room and adjoining soundproof listening rooms. With city funding low following WWII, the library was hoping for donations of records and sheet music from the public to form its music collection. The first donations arrived within weeks: four records from local 112 st. charles Avenue january 2017

groups and eight books of bound sheet music collected by the Armstrong family for over 100 years. A 1949 donation followed by an endowment established in 1950 by the Martinez family in honor of their grandfather, New Orleans composer and musician Theodore von La Hache, created the La Hache Music Library, the first public music library in the South. Within a year, the collection of classical, semiclassical, New Orleans jazz, foreign language instruction and more grew to over 4,000 records, with a circulation of almost 47,000, proving it be wildly popular and successful. The La Hache collection continued to grow over the years. A donation of 2,000

jazz albums came in 1952 from Dr. Edmond Souchon, creating the largest public jazz collection in the nation. Four hundred classical and rare opera records from the Rickert family followed in 1957. In 1958, with the opening of the new Central Library near City Hall, the collection was moved from the Latter Library branch and incorporated into a larger Art and Music Department. Like at Latter, soundproof listening rooms were available for in-house listening, or cardholders could borrow the records for at-home use. n Two library employees shelve records in the La Hache Music Library at Milton H Latter Library, c. 1950s.
