#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!

custom verses // commissioned piece for shining light photography

Things have been a little crazy over here - Julie recently returned from Iceland and both S&J hosted a FEED Supper last weekend (more on that soon!) But first we wanted to share some recent custom projects.

Loved creating these pieces for Ashley of Shining Light Photography! Her business name is rooted in this verse so she wanted to have it framed on the the wall in her office.

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."   - Matthew 5:16

Ashley was so sweet in giving me full creative license for her piece so I made 3 different version for her to choose from - above is my favorite of the set.
