Friendsgiving 2016 / by Allison Markova

 
"Here is to the gratitude for that place of pause today. Find it in the company you keep. The hug to be had. The glass to clink. The quiet of its close.

We are — each of us — the sum of all of life’s tables around which we have sat." 

 

A couple of weeks ago, Semia and her team invited me to join them for an evening of food, creativity, and conversation amongst friends at their Providence Steelyard studio. Flowers by Semia created a beautiful tablescape complete with hand-dyed mosses, seeds, pumpkins, mushrooms, and rich linens. The table was later re-designed to include seasonal centerpieces made by guests, and Gracie's served up their usual deliciousness on a stunning new collection of porcelain and stoneware from the talented creators at J Schatz. All in all, it was a lovely evening spent with old friends and new. I hope everyone remembered this past weekend to enjoy the simple pause of gathering together with loved ones, good friends, and even new acquaintances. 

I've been working on a few personal projects lately that I can't share yet- so I apologize for the infrequency of my posts. I am excited to be working on projects that I am passionate about and that challenge me creatively.
