Not the Moon Dinner Party

"There is nothing you can see that is not a flower.
There is nothing you can think that is not the moon."
- Basho

On August 29th, Colie from Flower Scout and I put on a dinner party for our friends and fellow young professionals. We formed the concept around a poem written by Basho and focused on Japanese minimalism, creating a Wabi-Sabi-esque esthetique. We wanted a special reason to showcase our abilities, and what's better than a one-of-a-kind dinner party! Once we created the concept, menu (all whole, in-season foods) and sourced the materials we split off into our respective areas of focus. While it wasn't quite so cut and dry, and really more of a collaboration all around- I was in charge of placement and food, and Colie tackled flowers and hand-dyed all the linens! We also asked that each guest contribute in their area of expertise. Our invites and placards were designed by Caroline Corrigan and printed by Publication Studio Hudson. Photos were taken by Michael Valiquette and the cake was made by Graciela of ME Studio (an amazing architecture firm, but she also makes the most amazing Vegan/GF cakes!).

The party was better than either of us hoped for- everything worked seamlessly and we all had an amazing time! So great, in fact, that we've already begun planning for the next one! Interested in our services for your next private event or wedding? Send an email to
