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!
