Hello There

Hi, there. I'm Megan Davis, the gal behind Toast & Laurel. My paper goods & design studio is based in Houston, Texas, and I am so lucky to work with incredible clients both locally and across the country. This blog is a bit of a hodgepodge - recipes, family updates, sneak peaks of my projects, and other daily inspirations! Thanks for stopping by.

    past, present & future

    To make up for a recent lack of blog posts, I would like to share three things with you.  

    A past custom stationery project for an incredibly sweet client:  

     

     

    Cookies I am presently snacking on (with a glass of milk, of course):

     

    And a future line of calling cards, stationery & note pads to be launched very soon:

    Hi Ladies - I am waiting for some additional proofs before I get the whole line photographed, priced & posted. But please feel free to email me if you want to go ahead and place an order! Green & black are the standard colors for this line, but I am happy to customize the color palette or any other details.

    Allie - no worries! Just email me when you get a chance. Your blog post today cracked me up!

    Joy - thanks for the kind words! The cookies are homemade from my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe from Dorie Greenspan's "Baking: From My Home to Yours". I think you can find the recipe on a couple blogs. They are wonderful! There are a few things that I think are key: chopping your own chocolate like Dorie recommends (I use 1/2 bittersweet, 1/2 semisweet) and either refrigerating or freezing the dough really well before baking. So good.

    So glad you asked about the plate! I found this pattern (http://www.juliska.com/our-collections/ceramics/boxwood-bow/dinnerware/)" rel="nofollow">http://www.juliska.com/our-collections/ceramics/boxwood-bow/dinnerware/) on sale off after the holidays and used the money my grandmother gave me for Christmas to buy a set of 8 salad/dessert plates. Not only are the plates beautiful, but they can go in the freezer, oven, dishwasher & microwave.
