My philosophy is that work meetings are always more relaxed when there is food. At the AERIN offices we often pair a brainstorming session
with an easy lunch. Armed with concept boards, tearsheets, and ideas we head to the conference room to have homemade potato chips, nuts,
fruit, and mini sandwiches. The key is it is all finger food—no forks necessary. One of the best parts about our lunches now, is actually using
the products that we’ve spent so long developing like my gold-rimmed glassware, vases, and bowls.  It provides so much inspiration for how
we can create beautiful things that make every event, even a work meeting, that much more special.
