Lovely Couture Cakes
This edition of “Argo Approved” we delve into the world of luxe! Who would have thought a wedding cake could be considered couture? Well, I’m the first to tell you the moment I saw the work of Scarlett Kilzer from Miam Cake it was obvious that this was not like any other cake I’d ever seen. From the sugar flowers that mind you look absolutely real to the handmade locust painted with edible gold, this was the work of an artist. Can you say, gobsmacked?!
We are excited to share the work of Brittni Hall in our Art at Argo’s Winter exhibit, “Ethereal Flora”. When we first saw Brittni’s work it was an instant connection. We love the vibrant color and impasto brush strokes to her paintings. They truly reach out and pull you in. The timing seemed perfect to release her work during Valentine’s season as the essence of romance is truly captured in her seductive paintings.Continue Reading

Many months ago, I was approached by long time customers of Argo & Lehne about an artist they thought might be a great add to Art at Argo’s. They apologized for not knowing exactly how to describe her work and expressed I needed to see it to understand. Intrigued, I asked them to bring an example.
Shortly after, they returned with their friend and artist, Valerie Dunning Edwards. They set down a few of her three dimensional sculptures and I was floored. These pieces were beautiful, whimsical and really pulled at my emotions! They embodied movement & nature and were made from the simplest of mediums, paper. We all agreed this was a great place to display her work and I am so honored to share her artwork, passion and breathtaking way she captures nature in our Winter Art at Argo’s Exhibit, “The Power of Paper & the Color of Paint” – on display and for purchase from Nov. 6th – Jan. 20th.
As we continue with our blogs series, Argo Approved, our customers have made it clear they are interested in knowing who we approve in Columbus for everything wedding, from proposal ideas to honeymoons. This edition we bring you a Columbus Secret Gem, make-up artist, Bridget Henry.
Who is Bridget Henry?
Bridget got her start in 1996 at Henri Bendel in Columbus’ former City Center Mall as the Counter Manger for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Quickly, Bridget was recognized for her sensational looks and raw talent. She began freelancing just 2 years into the industry and has been freelancing ever since (23 years now). Bridget relocated to New York where her make-up artistry began to soar.
She has worked with top designers in New York, Paris, London, and Milan fashion weeks. She has styled numerous celebrities – Kristen Stewart, Ben Stiller and Taylor Swift to a name just a few of the innumerable list. She has worked with major editorials such as Allure, Billboard, Bride, Essence, Fitness, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, Lucky, People, Self, Vogue…you get it, the list goes on and on for this woman! But here’s the kicker…Bridget moved back from New York because she missed being close to home and craved to start a family and a new chapter in one of her favorite cities. So, now we have this amazing stylist right here in Columbus, OH!
Who is Cecilia Lammers?
I’m a Pennsylvania native who has made Upper Arlington home. Married to my husband of 22 years with one daughter and two cats. My daughter is in college in Maine, so we spend a lot of time exploring New England’s outdoors, museums and seaside towns.
Although Cecilia is one of our newest Full-Time Sales Associates, her transition has been so smooth it feels she has been a member of our team for much longer.
Being part of a family-owned, local business really appeals to me. A&L has built a sparkling reputation for customer service and quality. I am eager to help carry on the A&L tradition.Continue Reading
