Here’s the second set of photos from September’s Preserving the Season workshop…all captured by Lauren from Sweet Root Village. For dinner, we gathered in the backyard of Patricia and Karl’s farmhouse. This location was perfect, with chickens picking and pecking off in the distance, dogs lounging under our feet (hoping to snatch a crumb or two), a litter of piglets nearby in the barn, perfectly grilled pasture raised pork (thanks, Karl!), and an assortment of pickled and preserved treats alongside our supper.
Being able to set the dinner table with well-made products and different textures is one of my favorite elements of hosting a gathering. This time, I layered my vintage brown flowered plates with a brown paper package tied up with string (with a Fog Linen apron inside) and a wooden teaspoon, which guests were able to take home. In addition to the teaspoons, Olmay Home sent over the perfect linen napkin. Each guest also received a Weck canning jar from West Elm, and a charming booklet chock full o’ recipes and instructions, designed by Jennifer Olmstead. And using fresh, local flowers (and other neat plants like black peppers) designed by my sweet friend Holly is a wonderful way to celebrate the fall season!
After our dinner, we moved inside to Patricia’s dream kitchen and canned for a few hours. I’ll share those pictures early next week!
In just a few weeks, I’ll be hosting the November Kinfolk Workshop, where we’ll be learning all about culinary herbal infusions. Make sure to get your ticket here, before we sell out!
Discovering how to infuse our lives—ourselves, our work, our relationships, our homes, and our entertaining spaces—with simple beauty, more intention, and slow living principles.
