A Maker’s Meal

Jun 19, 2017 | Kitchen, Reflections

We were so honored to be a part of the last Makers Meal, a supper series designed to celebrate D.C.’s community of farmers, chefs, florists, & artisans, and to create an opportunity for everyone to gather at the table and explore our area’s own terroir and all that it has to offer.

Lady Farmer was approached to create the dinner linens for this meal and we had so much fun doing it that we are hoping to add them to our online store in the coming future! They were made from organic cotton muslin sourced from Texas and hand-dyed with logwood to give it a beautiful purple/grey ombre we thought reminded us of the colors of dusk.

The evening was set in the beautiful Wollam Gardens, a cut flower farm Southwest of D.C. that is so lovely and in fact transporting…after dinner we gathered around a bonfire, sang our thankful hearts out, and camped under the stars & sparkling lightning bugs.

Words won’t really do this amazing dinner justice so we’ll leave you with some images…and we’ll certainly be dreaming of the heavenly food & libations provided by Rooster & Owl, McClintock Distilling, Early Mountain Vineyards, Right Proper Brewing and the Sweet Farm in the coming weeks!

Slow Living Lessons from the Season of Epiphany

Slow Living Lessons from the Season of Epiphany

January 6th marks the beginning of Epiphany, a period of several weeks in the Christian liturgical year between Christmas and Lent. This season of Epiphany calls us to be Wise Men and Women, to search out the Holy and appear before it with praise and gratitude. The story tells us it requires a long journey, a journey that will, in the end, bring us face to face with the truth.
