Winter Seasonal Living Workshop + Farm Meal | January 26th 2019

This winter workshop + farm meal was the second in our seasonal living series, and it turned out to be everything I could have hoped for. For this one we decided we’d keep it a bit smaller and more intimate as a reflection of the season, as we were expecting typical Oregon winter rainy weather. However, just like our fall workshop, we had an unseasonably beautiful, clear day.

THE WILDFLORA 3RD ST GRAND OPENING PARTY

I have been working with the amazing team of flower fairies at Wildflora for a few months now. It has been such a delight to evolve my knowledge and creativity when it comes to florals. So when it came time to have their Grand Opening party for their new 2nd shop, I was thrilled to be able to make that night a magical botanical reality.

AN ALL HALLOWS EVE DINNER W/ BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND THYME SOUP WITH MASA DUMPLINGS

A little witch once told me that to brew the perfect potion, one must have all the finest ingredients. Advice that truly goes for almost anything in life. To create the perfect meal, the perfect atmosphere.. the perfect moment in time... you must piece it together with simply the best.

THE BIRTHDAY BABES W/ SAVANNAH LATIMER + ARIE FREE PT. TWO

The party continues with these two birthday babes - Savannah Latimer + Arie Free.  Follow their at home birthday adventure, as they set up for the perfectly pink party.  I dunno about you, but I will be getting many balloons for my next birthday.  They remind me of my childhood and give me that little tickle of excitement in my soul.

FIG + FALL -- A BACKYARD GATHERING

A simple fall gathering filled with veggies and greens.  I know this season is usually filled with roasted birds, gravy and mash -- but this doesn't mean you can't change it up and try out something new.

A HEALTHY FALL GATHERING W/ CHELSEY ROSE HEALTH

Tis the season to gather.  That's what I like most about the fall. Yet another reason to set the table, jump in the kitchen and try out some new seasonal recipes.  On this occasion, I spent the afternoon with fitness and health guru Chelsey Rose, browsing the the farmers market, testing out some new recipes and setting a simple sleek fall table.  I am overjoyed to be working with this beauty, bringing some simple and healthy , seasonal appetizers your way.  The perfect collection of snacks for a weekend gathering with friends.

CARDAMON COFFEE CAKE W/ STUMPTOWN COLD BREW FROSTING + A SIMPLE FALL TABLE SETTING FOR THE PERFECT AFTERNOON TEA

Spent some time baking with my sister Nicole while in Florida last month.  We decided to make a coffee cake after buying some Stumptown Cold Brew and it was pretty tasty.  I love how we decided  to decorate this beauty of a cake.  It's all about presentation my friends.  We shot this on a stormy dark day in Florida, and I love how the images turned out.  So perfect for some October feels.

SUMMER OF 70S + THE ART OF CONCEPTUALIZING A TABLE SETTING

They call it Inspiration 

The summer is filled with long toasty days and the yearning to play.  Even as a young adult, there is this nostalgic air about days spent in the summer sun.  To let go of all responsibility and get lost in some groovy tunes, pool side, is the summer break dream.
