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!
