#FEEDsupper styled dinner party // NYC

Last summer, we were chosen by FEED to be one of their featured fall FEED Suppers. The idea is that each guest makes a donation to FEED to provide meals to people in need. Learn more about FEED's mission and FEED Suppers here! Our dinner party was a family affair - Stephanie and I styled and planned everything, I did the calligraphy and our husbands were our master chefs for the evening. Thanks to the fabulous Autumn Kern, of We Are The Kerns, for making the trip out to NYC for our supper party!

We had a lavender theme, which was incorporated into the color of our place cards, lavender cocktails, and a grilled pound cake dessert with vanilla ice cream and lavender simple syrup. (For the syrup boil 1 parts sugar to 1 parts water, steep lavender, strain and then add lemon juice.) 

We had a computer set up as a “giving station” - people came asking about the cause and we had the opportunity to talk about it while they were making their donations. This made giving feel natural and more integrated into the supper.

Thanks again to We Are The Kerns for documenting our FEED Supper!

preppy boho styled shoot // brigantine beach, nj

We had the privilege of styling this preppy boho shoot (using our dear friends Andrew & Haley as models) with Lauren Fair Photography! (Also be sure to check out the Every Last Detail blog feature!) We spent the day together relaxing in the sun, then switched gears, rushing to set up the shoot before an impending thunderstorm. Thanks to Lilies and Lavender for contributing the colorful flowers, our smokin' models (check out their real wedding photos on Lauren's blog!) and Tim & Lauren Fair of Lauren Fair Photography.

We chose a subtle watercolor theme for the menus, escort cards & invitation suite to match the beachy blues and pinks of the waves and sky.

How beautiful is that cotton candy sky and how STUNNING is sweet Haley?

And then the clouds rolled in. Check back for a few photos from Andrew & Haley's real wedding!
