The amazing menu was created and executed by Jamie Snell of The Lamb's Table. I wish I had taken more pics of the food - but it got inhaled the second it hit the table. We even got little menu cards displaying the phenomenal fare:
Let me just say...dessert was divine. So good, I didn't take a picture until I took a bite (then tried to cover up the bite with the strawberry on the right...)
The delightful evening soiree took place in SE Portland at the coolest store/studio called Seek the Unique - a fabulous vintage-antique-salvage shop headed by the ultra-talented Andrea Jones. This place is a dream for anyone who appreciates a creative vignette, beautiful re-purposed furniture, or unique home goods.
Check out these amazing creations - many of them refinished or repurposed on-site in the workshop...
(I'm in love with this hand-tufted wall - a DIY project by Andrea and Co.)
(Yep, these walls were another custom creation by Andrea and her family)
(Bad iPhone pic, but I love the colors and fixtures)
(I want one of these old cabinets to help sort my mail and keep my organized)
(Pendant made of twigs and hung from a twine-wrapped cord...so lovely)
A few other vintage finds that totally caught my eye - old, rustic, natural, patina-ed yet refined treasures:
(frame, rug, sofa, chairs...I wanted everything in this picture)
(vintage typewriters...oh how I'd love to score one of these)
(my take-home souvenir...the coolest and most regal little crest)
(antlers, rackets, and wicker...the makings for a dream porch-scape)
(some hip dog art by a local artist)
As you can see, it was pure eye-candy of the most elegant sort. If you're ever in Portland, you'll have to pay Andrea a visit.
Last but not least, here is a list of the other delightful home/design blogs that were represented at the social:
I had a wonderful time meeting such a great group of ladies and only wish I had events like this to attend more often. Kirsten and Jenn, thank you so much for all your efforts in putting together such a lovely evening for all of us!
