A Simple Affair

This past February a dinner event was held in an uber-hip, Brooklyn loft put on by Kinfolk, a community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings. Their hope is to encourage a natural approach to spending time with family and friends, a collaborative way of advocating the natural approach to entertaining.

What intrigued me most was the simplicity of the evening. No surprise that I loved the small touches like the handwritten welcome board, food cards and letterpress menus. It might be a little “too precious” for Nick but I think these elements bring a handcrafted, authentic feel to the moment. There is an understated and subtle energy behind these details which I appreciate.

Nicole from La Buena Vida was present to document the event.

To experience the simplicity of the evening have a look.

This only makes me want to entertain more…And why not? Some of the best memories I have are at friends’ homes for a meal or on our back porch enjoying good food, drink and conversation. The added touches of name cards, a handwritten menu, or whatever it may be, leave guests with a feeling of gratitude. It’s so easy to do.
