A Birthday Luncheon for Kimberly Van Der Beek

This luncheon was a surprise birthday celebration for my best friend Kimberly Van Der Beek. I invited a bunch of our best girlfriends and put together a vegan farm-to-table spread that was perfect for a beautiful spring day.

The Menu:

Hors d'oeuvres: Heirloom crudités platter with vegan artichoke dip

Starter: Citrus salad with avocado, beets, and fennel

Main course: Carrot Coconut Soup 

Dessert: Naked chocolate cake

Wine: Biodynamic Sauvignon Blanc from Dog Point, New Zealand.

 

The Decor:

Erin Fetherston x Fragments Identity natural mudlcoth tablecloth

Erin Fetherston x Fragments Identity natural mudlcoth napkins

Gold serving utensils from Canvas Home available on Jenni Kayne

Plates and Platters from Crate and Barrel

 

The Fashion:

Kimberly wears an Erin Fetherston Wooden Fringe Clutch and Erin Fetherston x Unearthen Crystal Pendant

I asked guests to dress in pale pastels or neutrals.  I find setting a color based dress code always makes for the best group photos.
