Al Fresco Dinners are my favorite. My dreams at the start of each season is to host one for friends (which never really turn out other than with wine and cheese). With the collaboration of so many fantastic vendors, this dinner was made possible. This was the 2nd installment of our dinner series held at Faunbrook, styled and designed by Juniper & Dash. Triple Fresh Inc crafted a delicious menu for this August dinner. Menu below.
