Her new collection; “Into The Mystic” is eye popping in its magic with bouquets styled in the Dutch Vanitas tradition partially swallowed by swirling smoke.

KINFOLK DINNER: TAURANGA

Kinfolk Dinner Tauranga – A Messy Meal from Quinn OConnell on Vimeo.

Presenting you the second of the recent New Zealand Kinfolk gatherings!

This beautiful dinner was hosted stylist and floral genius; Shaye Woolford at the Marilyn Cleland Interiors in Tauranga. Combining foodie forces with Nadine Bailey of Devour Catering and Danielle Cubis of Spongedrop, they took to the “Messy Meal” challenge with gusto. As you can see both in the imagery and the video – I think they well and truly achieved that mission (salivation!)

Enjoy the gorgeous imagery AND film by Quinn & Katie Photography – I think you’ll agree there is a great deal of dining/gathering/eating/entertaining inspiration to be had here! I love the lightness, simplicity and the toasting of marshmallows! Yes!

Explore all the clever collaborators and cooperating brands at the bottom of the post as well as a summary of the menu.

Kinfolk Dinner: Auckland

Kinfolk Magazine, A Messy Meal Embracing Wabi-Sabi, Auckland, New Zealand from Side Project on Vimeo.

Welcome to the first of two rich posts documenting the recent New Zealand Kinfolk dinners hosted once again by photographer Greta Kenyon and florist/stylist; Shaye Woolford.  Around the world on the 11th of October, people sat down to enjoy intimate meals in beautiful settings inspired by the concept of “Wabi Sabi”. I was lucky enough to attend the glowing Auckland gathering hosted by Greta and her team in the secret courtyard of Mondays Wholefoods.

With just 20 guests in total we were treated to a simply luscious menu of food and drink that still lingers in my taste bud memories even now! In short; the team at our service absolutely knocked it out of the park! At the bottom of the post is a full linked list of those clever people including the local suppliers whose products topped off the entire experience.

I could attempt to describe the dinner in detail but wouldn’t be able to communicate it better than the stunning documentation by Greta Kenyon below or the great little film of the evening by Ben Journee of Side Project.
I
 hope you are able to draw some inspiration for your own rustic gathering!

Coming soon – the Tauranga gathering!

STREET WALKING: foraged flower ideas

Street foraged foliage and ideas on what to do with it! Studio Home with Lu Diamond Flowers partnered with Farmers - Your Department Store and making use of a cool collection of glasses, bottles and more for our finds! / Photography by Julia Atkinson for Studio HomeSo to wrap up our last edition in the series of easy to execute ideas for you with “easily accessed” foliage and flowers, Lucy Houghton of Lu Diamond Flowers and I went for a wander round the block from her Ponsonby studio….armed with secateurs..

Like the other posts, I used product I scoped at Farmers as inspiration.
I am BIG on ramshackle, casual, “artfully” thrown together still lifes. I’m the sort of person that uses nice drinking glasses as vases more often then not – so with this in mind I trawled the aisles of Farmers looking for a collection of simple and detailed glassware in different but attractive shapes and forms. This then spurred on the resulting floral experimentation!
You can have a trawl through their huge range of vases and glassware here.

We stalked around, hawk eyes trained on anything of interest peeping around corners or draping over fences. With no real plan in mind of the vibe, it was more about what was available and obviously in season in terms of flowers!

Our haul was then dragged back to Lucy’s studio, cleaned up a little then lined up in front of our collection of glassware.

FORAGED STILL LIFE

Our first project was to create a still life using the majority of what we had found. I love big collections like this that look impressive taking up a sideboard, or clustered on top of a book shelf. They are definitely the type of set ups that enjoy having their “back to the wall”, particularly if you have a wayward larger branch that might need to lean on it!

We liked how this looked but there was scope for more!

MINIMAL

Another of my favourites is getting SUPER MINIMAL on the actual arranging and instead stick with just one variety of flower or foliage, separating them among a few vessels or better yet, celebrating its form by simply popping it into its own vase with simply nothing else.
Beautiful , pared back and un-contrived.

RAMSHACKLE ARRANGEMENT

Lastly we pulled all the finds back together and Lucy created a large, perfectly imperfect arrangement.
I LOVED how it looked rough and ready and totally decadent all at once!

Again – don’t be distracted by “what” plants we used, instead use this as a starting point to strike out and see what you can find near you!
ENJOY YOUR FLORAL ADVENTURES!
