Strawberry Moonlight Dinner

Every time we receive a submission from Juniper & Dash, I hold my breath as I know it’s going to be fabulous. But this time? Well this time they’ve outdone themselves. This strawberry themed moonlight dinner is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. With lush bouquets and twinkly lights and sheer, all out lovely. With photos from Alexandra Whitney, the gallery is chock full of pretty that you simply musn’t miss.


From Juniper & Dash… June’s Full Moon is called the Strawberry Moon {because of the strawberry harvest} and this year it fell on the superstitious Friday 13th. Something that hasn’t happened since 1919 and won’t happen again until 2098!

To celebrate we held a lovely Strawberry Moonlight Dinner focusing on the guest of honor, strawberries! Triple Fresh did a great job of creating a menu that incorporated strawberries throughout without being overwhelming.

With the help of Kati Mac Floral Design’s amazing centerpieces, we created a farm-to-table feel utilizing mason jars, dish towel napkins, and a pints of strawberries for each guest to take home and have fun with.

We wanted guests to think outside the realm of the typical “strawberry dish” and realize there was so much fun that could be had with it! The true magic in the evening was, despite the rain & dreary weather, people were able to sit back under the lights and tent and enjoy good food and great conversation!

THE MENU

Salad:
shaved fennel & arugula, candied walnuts, danish bleu, and strawberry mignonette

Entree: 
petite filet of beef with sweet berry demi-glace and atlantic salmon filet with strawberry gastrique served with grilled asparagus and roasted chanterelle mushrooms over saffron risotto

strawberry rhubarb crisp drizzled with lavender creme anglaise

15 Ways to Organize Your Pantry

And while I’m in confession mode, I’ll tell you that the second I finished this post, I totally and completely re-organized my cupboards. Because as far as I’m concerned, an organized pantry is the bees knees. And even better? An organized pantry that STAYS organized is our goal for today. And it’s not nearly as difficult as you may think…
