When planning events there are a few essential ingredients to success and most often this formula involves a delicate balancing act of the right atmosphere, personalities, backdrop and of course who could forget the the food & wine?
Last year on a rainy, cool afternoon in Sydney's Northern beach, I teamed up with my gorgeous friend Natalie from Eat Read Love to host an intimate afternoon tea for Kinfolk Magazine. This was a small gathering of media and bloggers who came together in the beautiful home of Jessie James from Supply Paper Co and although I'm so, so late in posting these photos I can't help but use this as the perfect example of when something just comes together seamlessly. Maybe it was the smoothing sound of rain or the pristine palatte of Jessie's home but whatever it was, the afternoon was magical. We laughed, sipped on coffee (and wine) and swapped stories from around the globe on community and friendship and welcomed Julie and Katie from Kinfolk with open arms.
A huge thank you to all of our guests and partners for being part of this day. A special thanks: Catering by Mario's kitchen. Venue at the home of Jessie James from Supply Paper Co. Photos by Tealilyphotography Flowers by Jardine Botanic Floral Styling, Wine by Gilbert by Simon Gilbert.
