Entertaining: Dinner in the Apple Orchard

Kelly  |  November 11

Remember when I was scouting for the location for this shoot? You can check out the full entertaining story online at Flutter Magazine right here, or you can pick up a copy at these stockists or you can buy a print copy of magazine online right here. This was the kind of shoot where everything fell together perfectly in ways that couldn’t have been planned.  A big thank you to the amazing Nancy Neil for the insane photos and the to die for food by Paper Palate.

The signature apple drink  by Paper Palate was a serious hit.

The Menu:

Garden Carrots, Green Olives and Radishes with Bagna Cauda

Roasted Late Summer Tomato Soup with Herb Pesto Oil

Roasted Two Day Salted Whole Local Chicken

Pumpkin Tacos

Okra & Tomato Salad

Stuffed Baked Apple with Melted Cheddar Cheese

The table itself had a beautiful galvanized finish and is available for rent from Vintage Vignettes. Each place setting consisted of  gorgeous plates from Anthropologie, a hand painted menu by Rebekah Miles, glassware from Upstairs at Pierre Lafond, vintage flatware, and napkins by Rachel Craven.

I used pre-made loose weave ribbon around candles and tucked in millet, wheat, scabiosa, and astrania instead of doing a traditional flower arrangement. Flowers can be purchased at Fabulous Florals.

Pumpkin tacos, check out the recipe here.

Local Cambria Estate Wines paired perfectly with the menu.

I found these short tumblers from Upstairs at Pierre Lafond and I knew they’d be perfect for our baked apple dessert.

Dig in! Thank you to all the contributors and Flutter Magazine! I’ll be posting some behind the scenes action on Wednesday.
